As great alternative to the standard gear pump, lobe pumps are meant to process solids and handle slurries, pastes and a variety of other liquids. Lobe pumps are commonly used to handle solids without damaging the product by using large, non-contacting pumping chambers. Rotary lobe pumps provide either continuous or intermittent reversible flows and can operate dry for a brief period if flushed seals are used. Output is constant and continuous because the flow is relatively independent of any changes in process pressure.
DXP Cortech offers lobe pumps for use in food, pharmaceutical and chemical applications. Our distributors include UniBloc, Ampco and Verder.
