Alfa Laval is offering three new model sizes of its Twin Screw Pump, designed to handle lower flow rates for hygienic applications across the dairy, food, beverage and home-personal care industries.

The company says the new models increase and improve the performance of the pump, giving lower flow rates yet get better accuracy, higher volumetric efficiency and more economical operation.

The new compact, lower-flow Twin Screw Pumps are designed for low-shear transfer of sensitive, abrasive and high and low viscosity fluids with high large solids content. Low pulsation characteristics greatly reduce the risk of product damage and so improve product quality.

These small new models are intended for multi-duty applications, handling both product transfer and cleaning duties. This eliminates the need for a separate Cleaning-in-Place pump and bypass piping. There are also cost savings with a front-loading cartridge seal that simplifies maintenance and extends process uptime.

Pump Portfolio manager at Alfa Laval, John Walker explained: "Optimized for lower-flow product transfer, the three new Twin Screw Pump models extend the current pump range to deliver higher accuracy and process economy."
