Packo Pumps has expanded its range with the MSCP, a side channel impeller pump for applications with foaming or viscous liquids.

The MSCP design has several features which, the company says, allows it to be easily cleaned.  For example, the outlet of the pump is on the sealing (chamber) cavity, giving continuous flushing and no dead space.  With side channel pumps whose impeller is closed on the outside, there is always a narrow gap that cannot be cleaned between the impeller and the pump casing. If an open impeller is used, the blades often vibrate, which is noisy. The MSCP series uses a connection ring on the outside of the blades, which prevents the vibrations of the blades and, because the ring is so narrow, the space behind it is still easy to clean.

Packo Pumps has also designed an impeller with profiled blades for the MSCP pump, allowing a wider range of operating points from the same pump. The suction chamber is large enough to retain sufficient liquid when the pump is switched off, so it is self-priming when it is restarted.

The MSCP has high suction power and air handling capacity, so the pump can completely empty the suction line, even with foaming and slightly more viscous liquids.
