Lutz Pumpen‘s new eccentric screw pump, the Lutz B70V Sanitary, was developed and designed for pumping liquid foodstuffs, pharmaceutical agents and cosmetic products from different vessels and containers. This development 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 Lutz B70V Sanitary has 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. Detachable tri-clamp connections according to DIN 32676 and couplings to DIN 11851 avoid contamination even at the discharge.
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.
