The design of the new Lutz B70V Sanitary eccentric screw pumps ensures reliability with low maintenance and full manual cleaning.

Designed in accordance with hygienic aspects

The new eccentric screw pump Lutz B70V Sanitary was developed and designed for pumping liquid foodstuffs, pharmaceutical agents and cosmetic products from different vessels and containers. This new development strictly meets the constructive requirements of the hygienic design and is certified and approved according to the latest “3-A Sanitary Standards for Centrifugal and Positive Rotary Pumps Number 02-10”. All parts coming into contact with the product are made of resistant stainless steel (1.4571 / 1.4404), 3-A/FDA compliant plastics (PTFE) and elastomers (EPDM). An open type spring loaded mechanical seal is available or optionally a closed version to avoid direct contact with the product.

The entire design of the Lutz B70V Sanitary places hygienic features in the foreground: therefore, only manually detachable, thread-free connections have been used in the areas in contact with the medium. The design is nearly free of deadlegs, thus microbiological problems caused by germs and bacteria are practically impossible. The Lutz B70 V Sanitary is easy and fast to dismantle for a thorough mechanical cleaning and disinfection and to reassemble. All parts coming into contact with the liquid are easily accessible for inspection and service. Quickly detachable tri-clamp connections according to DIN 32676 and couplings to DIN 11851 avoid contamination even at the discharge.

Clean results that you can rely on

With a flow rate of 12 to 50 l/min and an operating pressure of max. 10 bar, the Lutz B70V Sanitary is suitable for pumping thin-bodied to highly viscous media. Thanks to low pulsation and low shear effect, solid particles and soft solids such as small fruit pieces can be pumped.

Versatile and variable: The chosen immersion depth and the small immersion tube diameter ensure that drums, IBC containers and other commercially available containers are emptied safely and almost completely from the top. Various drive motors e.g. 3-phase motors with and without integrated frequency converter (B70V-H-D) and universal motors (B70V-H-SR) are available. The drive motor can be separated from the pump tube instantly thanks to the new quick action coupling or hand wheel. This allows you to go from one task to the other at any time.
