Design vitalobe

Sturdy rotary lobe pump in hygienic design, bi-directional operation possible, horizontal or vertical orientation of connections. Hygienic design, highly CIP/SIP-compatible due to its almost complete lack of dead volume or narrow clearances. All wetted components made of 1.4404/1.4409 (AISI 316L/CF3M) stainless steel; various rotor types, shaft seals and process connections available. Installed as a pump set with geared standardised motor. Vitalobe is EHEDG-certified. The pump elastomers comply with FDA standards and EN 1935/2004. Accessories include trolley, heatable casing or casing cover and overpressure protection unit. ATEX-compliant version is available.
