Alfa Laval SRU rotary lobe pumps are carefully engineered to provide reliable performance, trouble-free operation and superior energy efficiency for demanding applications in the dairy, food, beverage, personal care and pharmaceutical industries.
Alfa Laval SRU rotary lobe pumps are an excellent choice for duties that require contamination-free pumps to meet high standards of hygiene, low-shear and low-pulsation operations. This pump handles both cleaning-in-place and sterilisation-in-place, and can be supplied with thorough documentation to support rigorous validation requirements.
Consistency with minimal risk of contamination
Alfa Laval SRU rotary lobe pumps are designed with features that maximise performance and minimise the risk of contamination. These include a defined compression front cover sealing, rotor nut retention design, drainable pump head, and ultra-clean surface finishes.
Understanding of flow patterns is vital to ensure high efficiency fluid transfer with low pulsation, low shear and low noise characteristics. Alfa Laval employs Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to establish the exact geometry for the rotors and rotor case.
Robust construction – low maintenance
To deliver reliable operations and low maintenance, the SRU features a robust gearbox construction with heavy-duty shafts, torque-locking assemblies, and taper roller bearings throughout.
Certification, specification and standards
Alfa Laval SRU rotary lobe pumps comply with EHEDG, 3-A, 3.1 and FDA hygienic standards and have ATEX approval for use in explosive environments. Alfa Laval is a leading global provider of specialised products and engineering solutions based on its key technologies of heat transfer, separation and fluid handling. The company’s equipment, systems and services are dedicated to assisting customers in optimising the performance of their processes. The solutions help them to heat, cool, separate and transport products in industries that produce food & beverages, chemicals & petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, starch, sugar, and ethanol.
