lobe pumps

Lobe pumps offer superb sanitary qualities, high efficiency, reliability, corrosion resistance, and good clean-in-place and sterilise-in-place (CIP/SIP) characteristics.

They can handle high viscosity fluids and solids without damaging them.

How does a lobe pump works?

Lobe pumps work similarly to gear pumps, except that the lobes do not come in contact with each other.

In addition, lobe pumps have larger pumping chambers than gear pumps, which enable them to transfer slurries. They also tend to move slower in order to handle shear-sensitive materials.

The lobe vanes are usually made of stainless steel and are very highly polished. Lobe pumps are known for their long running lives.

  • Cosmetics
  • Chemicals
  • Meat Products
  • Brewing and Soft Drinks
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Abrasive suspensions
  • Transfer Process
  • Filling
  • Metering
  • Filtration

  • Flow rates up to 108m³/hr (30 litres/second)
  • Pressures up to Up to 15bar (220 psi)
  • Temperature range: -40ºC to +140ºC
  • Liquid viscosity range: 1 to 1,000,000 centipoise
  • Hygienic - approved to American 3A standard
  • Gentle pumping action suits viscous, delicate and particle-laden liquids
  • Easy to clean, easy to maintain
  • AISI316 stainless steel construction

DESIGN FEATURES

  • Most Stringent Hygienic Standards - Flush rotor fixing screws are sealed to prevent product ingress. Contoured rotor case internals for full drainability during SIP and shaft seals set up front where the pumping action is! Fully conforming to 3A 02-10 Hygienic Standards and utilising materials which meet FDA requirements. Versions are available that have been tested and approved to the EHEDG (European Hygienic Equipment Design Group), CIP and SIP protocols and USDA, 3A certification.
  • Low Maintenance Costs - Front loaded single shaft seals are fully accessible from the front of the pump without disturbing the process pipework. Simple bearing assemblies easily pre-set using automotive technology. Bi-wing rotors require no timing adjustments. Even the pump casing is removable, a feature not normally associated with other bi-wing rotor pumps.
  • High Volumetric Efficiency - The bi-wing rotors incorporate the low viscosity efficiency associated with circumferential piston pumps with the viscous product handling capability of tri-, quad- and bi-lobe rotor pumps...... at an affordable price!
  • Rugged Design - Hy~Line design utilises extremely large shaft diameters mounted in high specification taper roller bearings, fitted into an extremely rigid central pillar made from a high grade alloy. This is all enclosed in an oil filled housing made from the same alloy. These, together with wide tipped rotor wings, which adds another dimension to security, avoid premature pump failure due to overpressure or other abuse.

OPTIONS

  • Seals - Front loaded single mechanical face type seals of hygienic design. Materials include carbon, stainless steel and silicon carbide. Low pressure flushed seals utilise the same single mechanical seal with an additional housing. A low pressure flush liquid washes away crystallising products or liquids which ‘skin over’.
    Double mechanical seals utilising all the components from single seals. Used for hazardous, toxic, highly abrasive or sterile products.
    Front loaded single O-Ring seals - a low cost seal option used primarily for self lubricating products and products which contain little or no abrasives.
    Front loaded double O-Ring seals - suitable for pressurised grease or flushing with a suitable liquid to enable low cost sealing of high sugar confectionery and bakery products.
    Multiple PTFE lip seal - complete with controlled release food grade grease injection system, the ideal sealing system for chocolate and other products sensitive to water flush.
  • Certification - 3.1B Material Certification package. 3A Variants with Nitrile or EPDM elastomers and port options - Tri-clamp, IDF, 3A, DIN11851
  • Connections - All US and European standards including DIN, SMS, RJT, IDF, Tri-Clamp & BSP. Most pumps available with 2 different sizes, all fully interchangeable. (Not on 3 & 7 size)
  • Elastomers - Nitrile, Viton, EPDM and PTFE product contact joints available in compounds conforming to 3A Sanitary Standard 18-03 and FDA title 21 section 177.2600.
  • Other options - Pump Head temperature control jackets. Integral pressure relief valve. Enlarged suction port for viscous products. All stainless steel bearing pedestal and cover. Low carbon 316L pump head. Tanker pump version for direct hydraulic drive.

Jabsco 24-series hygienic rotary lobe pumps have been in service worldwide for nearly 20 years. The continued popularity of the 24-series reflects the advanced hygienic design and manufacturing methods brought in by Jabsco at the time of its introduction. 24-series pumps use the tri-lobe rotor design proven in service with the world's leading producers of food products, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.

Jabsco 24 Series Rotary Lobe Pump

Applications

  • Food Ingredients
  • Confectionery and Bakery
  • Meat Products
  • Brewing and Soft Drinks
  • Milk and Dairy Products
  • Cosmetics and Drugs
  • Chemicals, Plastics, etc.
  • Transfer
  • Process
  • Filling
  • Metering
  • Filtration
  • Circulation
  • Tankers

CAPABILITIES

  • Flow rates up to 126m³/hr (35 litres/second)
  • Pressures up to Up to 10bar (146 psi)
  • Temperature range: -40ºC to +200ºC
  • Liquid viscosity range: 1 to 1,000,000 centipoise

DESIGN FEATURES

  • Adaptability - This is the key design concept. The pump utilises ‘bolt on’ features which allow quick and easy interchange of parts to enable exact specification of the pump to suit any application.......from stock!
  • Rugged Design - The bearing frame design utilises large shaft diameters mounted in high specification taper roller bearings, fitted into rigid pillars which form an integral part of the high grade alloy housing. These ensure maximum shaft stiffness in order to avoid premature pump failure due to overpressure or other abuse.
  • Low Maintenance - The shaft, bearing and gear assemblies are fully immersed in an oil bath to give maximum life even at extremes of operating conditions. The timing gears are easily accessible at the rear of the pump in the unlikely event that re-timing should become necessary. Rotors are all fully interchangeable avoiding the need to re-time which is a problem associated with so many other rotary lobe and circumferential piston pumps.
  • Improved Hygienic Technology - Fully swept pump chamber together with sealed rotor spline, accessible seals, and approved sealing components ensure that the pump meets the stringent requirements of major international customers.

OPTIONS

  • Seals - Single mechanical seals are of hygienic design. Materials include carbon, stainless steel, tungsten carbide and silicon carbide.
    Low pressure flushed seals utilise the same single mechanical seal with an additional housing. A low pressure flush liquid washes away crystallising products or liquids which ‘skin over’.
    Double mechanical seals utilise all the components from single seals. For hazardous, toxic, highly abrasive or sterile products.
    Gland packing - a cost effective general purpose seal for non-hazardous liquids. Used on either a stainless steel or hard chrome plated anti-wear sleeve.
    O-Ring seals - another low cost seal option used primarily for self lubricating products such as dairy products.
  • Certification - 3A Variants with Nitrile or EPDM elastomers and port options - Tri-clamp, IDF, 3A, DIN11851.
  • Rotors - Tri-lobe rotors in stainless steel handle 90% of all applications. The traditional rotor shape gives an excellent combination of efficiency, solids handling, low and high viscous product capability. Bi-lobe rotor in stainless steel for exceptional handling of delicate, soft solids such as fruit pieces and vegetables. Rubber covered tri-lobe rotor to cope with small hard solids such as small bone fragments or ice crystals.
  • Connections - All US and European standards including DIN, SMS, RJT, IDF, Tri-Clamp & BSP. Most pumps available with 2 different sizes, all fully interchangeable.
  • Elastomers - Nitrile, Viton, EPDM, PTFE or Kalrez product contact joints are available.
  • Other options - Pump head temperature control jackets. Integral pressure relief valve. Enlarged suction ports for highly viscous product.
