Designed for handling fluids that are sensitive, abrasive and either high or low viscosity, the Alfa Laval twin screw pump is ideal for use in hygienic applications in the dairy, food and beverage, and personal care industries.
“The Twin Screw Pump is the ideal choice for both high and low viscosity liquids, all pumped perfectly with complete reliability," says John Walker, Alfa Laval’s Pump Portfolio Manager.
Additional benefits are that it is quiet and virtually pulse-free, as well as being smooth and gentle during operation. These characteristics make it an excellent choice for handling sensitive products.
Built on a robust, reliable platform that meets stringent hygienic standards, the pump is capable of handling both product transfer and cleaning in place. Its low pulsation characteristics and excellent solids handling capabilities reduce the risk of product damage, thereby improving product quality. Maintenance is simplified and process uptime is increased.
Its two-in-one operation provides easy handling of process media of varying viscosities as well as cleaning fluids. This simplifies piping and pump control, cutting costs and minimising contamination risks. Superior suction performance with excellent lift capability and low net positive suction head required provides installation flexibility and increases product recovery.
Quick, easy seal replacement with the pump in place is made possible by a cartridge seal with a truly front-loading, self-setting design, which maximises process uptime and minimises maintenance costs. An optional seal service kit program adds maintenance flexibility and cuts operating costs.
The pump features a clean, external stainless steel finish with profiled elastomers and mechanical seals fully surrounded by the product. Designed for maximum cleanability using FDA-conforming materials, the pump is both EHEDG and 3-A certified. An optional ATEX version enables use in hazardous zones.
