Large rotary lobe pump for sensitive products

23 July 2018

GEA is expanding its rotary pump range with the large-volume GEA Hilge NOVALOBE 60 which is designed for pumping and dosing highly viscous media, also with large particles. The pump meets the hygiene standards of the EHEDG guidelines for applications in the food industry. The chamber volume of the new pump has almost doubled, to 2.1 litres per revolution and it can pump particles measuring up to 41mm. 

The new NOVALOBE is also able to pump larger quantities at low speed, which is important for sensitive media.

The GEA Hilge NOVALOBE is part of the GEA VARIPUMP line – which stands for versatility and flexibility. All pumps in this line can be easily converted which means they offer the flexibility to be used with various media and pumping requirements. A year of successfully field-testing in a sugar factory confirmed its strengths in daily operation: Production managers at the factory found it easy to operate the rotary lobe pump and wearing parts could be replaced without any retrofitting. The internal mechanical seals can be replaced from the front without removing the pump. These seals are lubricated and cooled optimally, significantly extending the product life time.
