UniBoost Lobe pumps are similar to external gear pumps in operation in that fluid flows around the interior of the casing. Unlike external gear pumps, however, the lobes do not make contact. Lobe contact is prevented by external timing gears located in the gearbox. Pump shaft support bearings are located in the gearbox. Rotary pumps can handle solids (e.g., cherries and olives), slurries, pastes, and a variety of liquids. If wetted, they offer self-priming performance. A gentle pumping action minimizes product degradation. They also offer continuous and intermittent reversible flows and can operate dry for brief periods of time. Flow is relatively independent of changes in process pressure, too, so output is constant and continuous. Rotary pumps also offer superior CIP/SIP performance. Once in line, they can be cleaned without being removed. Depending on the application, it is a good idea to check with the manufacturer to make sure if a particular lobe pump meets both 3-A requirements.
