To meet the requirements of lower flow rates and higher production capacities, the addition of the Alfa Laval OptiLobe 10 and OptiLobe 50 adds 4 new pump sizes to the product range.

These new pumps will also provide the possibility of having heating/cooling front covers for processes, where products tend to harden at low temperatures.

Gentle, hygienic product treatment
Alfa Laval OptiLobe s high precision rotors and low-shear operation ensure gentle handling of delicate products. With full cleanability, the OptiLobe also complies with the world s leading hygienic standards.

Designed for cleanability
Seal faces in the OptiLobe have direct contact with high-velocity product media. This ensures a fast and secure Cleaning-in-Place (CIP) process, reducing both cleaning time and contamination risk. Engineered for use within the food, dairy, beverage and home-personal care industries, these positive displacement pumps conform to CE directives and EHEDG, 3-A and FDA hygienic standards.

Efficient and quiet operation
The OptiLobe pumps are engineered with a wide performance envelope, due to an advanced rotor shape design and a rotor case that incorporates cusps. In addition to maximizing pump efficiency, these designs feature reduced pulsation and noise emissions. The OptiLobe pumps are also reducing the possibility of product damage by internal product recirculation.

Easy maintenance
Factory-set shimming simplifies maintenance by making the process of changing the rotor quick and smooth, with no further adjustment or retrimming needed. Alfa Laval s high-precision components also allow for full interchangeability of spare parts.
