How far have you come on the path to efficiency? In the world of dairy processing, choosing the right pump technology can make all the difference. When it’s essential to preserve the fine quality of viscous cream cheese or sensitive fruit yoghurt particles without excessive shear forces, GEA’s portfolio of positive displacement pumps offers two outstanding design concepts. Both meet all hygienic safety requirements while ensuring fast, dependable, and efficient operation in numerous applications.
Extremely reliable: GEA Hilge NOVALOBE
GEA Hilge NOVALOBE is a robust and reliable rotary lobe pump in GEA’s portfolio that fulfills highest hygienic requirements, based on the proven GEA design. The shaft overhang and clearance in this pump have been minimized. The compact design and rigid shaft geometry reduce the risk of galling to an absolute minimum.
This pump can handle differential pressures of up to 16 bar. Various rotor profiles can be selected to adapt the pump to any applications and conditions for optimum performance. Precision-ground cylinders minimize play and reduce vibrations as well as noise. No metal-to-metal contact takes place – these pumps are made to last.
Product and CIP pump in one: GEA Hilge NOVATWIN+
GEA Hilge NOVATWIN+ is the latest version of GEA’s highly flexible twin screw pump concept. Offering a sophisticated 2-in-1 solution, this pump can run at variable speeds up to 3000 rpm and in reverse mode, eliminating the need for a separate CIP pump. The pump design ensures gentle product handling with almost no pulsation, especially suitable for large and delicate particles. A maximum system pressure of 30 bar, a self-priming capability of up to 8 meters and multiple screw combinations open numerous fields of application for you.
To make this multi-achiever even more sustainable, the GEA Hilge NOVATWIN+ has been redesigned for higher flow rates, allowing the installation of smaller pumps in around 2/3 of applications. This amounts to 23% less materials built into your pumps and, assuming a power consumption of 10,000 kWh, around 1,000 kWh energy savings a year, optimizing costs as well as climate footprint.
Lobe or screw – Up to you
Both positive displacement pumps are EHEDG certified for hygienic dairy applications, highlighting the uncompromised cleanability of the pumps – essential for the purity and safety of your products. Various seal types, carefully selected to support CIP and SIP, are available for all applications and types of media. When choosing your solution, GEA provides pump configurations for any application of your choice.
