SEEPEX Open Hopper Pumps for Improved Flowability

Certain applications require an open hopper pump to feed in materials and maintain a consistent flow. They work by having an open hopper on the top of the pump and an auger feed screw. These pumps are specially designed to handle viscous to semi-solid products with little to no flowability.

 

SEEPEX is a leading manufacturer when it comes to open hopper pumps. They offer open hopper pumps in 10 different ranges that come with multiple variations for nearly all industrial operations. The quick access to the joints and plug-in connection make them very easy to maintain.

 

BTM Range

SEEPEX BTM Range Open Hopper Pumps are for process materials with large pieces of fruits or vegetables. They can handle conveying capacities that range from 0.25 m3/hr to 130 m3/h and pressure up to 24 bar (350 psi). These pumps also feature an extended compression casing that is equipped with stationary cutting mechanisms.


BTVE Range

SEEPEX BTVE Range Open Hopper Pumps are for process materials that are highly viscous or contain semi-solid products that don’t bridge. These pumps can handle conveying capacities that range from 0.5 m3/hr to 120 m3/h and pressure up to 36 bar (525 psi). The rectangular open hopper can also be configured at variable lengths.

 

BTQ Range

SEEPEX BTQ Range Open Hopper Pumps are for process materials with medium-to-high viscosity and low flowability. They can handle conveying capacities that range from 50 l/hr to 100 m3/h and pressure up to 24 bar (350 psi). These pumps are compact in design and feature flange-mounted direct drive (block type).


BT Range

SEEPEX BT Range Open Hopper Pumps are for process materials with high viscosity and low flowability. These pumps can handle conveying capacities that range from 100 l/hr to 300 m3/h and pressure up to 36 bar (525 psi). These pumps also feature a compact design and directly flange-mounted drive (block type).


BTI Range

SEEPEX BTI Range Open Hopper Pumps are for process materials ranging from highly viscous to semi-solid products that tend to bridge. They can handle conveying capacities that range from 100 l/hr to 300 m3/h and pressure up to 36 bar (525 psi). The rectangular open hopper can be configured at variable lengths.


BTH Range

SEEPEX BTH Range Open Hopper Pumps are for process materials that are highly viscous, semi-solid or shear-sensitive products that tend to bridge. These pumps can handle conveying capacities that range from 0.5 m3/hr to 130 m3/h and pressure up to 36 bar (525 psi). The ribbon screw is separately driven, centric and edge running. It features a maximized diameter and sustained pitch.


BTHE Range

SEEPEX BTHE Range Open Hopper Pumps are for process materials with high viscosity or with semi-solid products that tend to bridge. They can handle conveying capacities that range from 0.5 m3/hr to 130 m3/h and pressure up to 36 bar (525 psi). The ribbon screw is centric and edge running.


BTES Range

SEEPEX BTES Range Open Hopper Pumps are for process materials that are highly viscous to semi-solid from silo systems. These pumps can handle conveying capacities that range from 0.5 m3/hr to 130 m3/h and pressure up to 24 bar (350 psi). The rectangular open hopper can be configured at variable lengths.

 

BTEI Range

SEEPEX BTEI Range Open Hopper Pumps are for process materials that are highly viscous or contain semi-solid materials that tend to bridge. They can handle conveying capacities that range from 0.5 m3/hr to 100 m3/h and pressure can be handled up to 36 bar (525 psi). These pumps feature a bridge breaker/mixing device with a rotating paddle shaft and a separate drive.


BTEX Range

SEEPEX BTEX Range Open Hopper Pumps are commonly used in the agriculture and biogas industries for extreme applications. These pumps can handle conveying capacities that range from 20 m3/hr to 80 m3/h and pressure can be handled up to 8 bar (120 psi).
