The nine models AxFlow’s Waukesha MDL series pump give capacities up to 124 m³/hr and differential pressures of 10 bars. Featuring two stainless steel triple lobe rotors the MDL series pump provides gentle product handling characteristics, making it ideally suited to handling viscous, non-abrasive and sensitive fluids where low shear is of major importance. Being a lobe pump, it is easy to clean as there are few fluid cavities where bacteria can grow, so it is suitable for CIP and has been designed and engineered to conform to EHEDG certification for the European market.

The four-way mounting gear case, including vertical alignment of ports, gives users greater design freedom when it comes to installation of the pump. The design also means that the pump is easy to disassemble/assemble for service and maintenance. This is further aided by the attention given to the design of the shaft, which utilises a unique rotor attachment that provides repeatable rotor positioning and solid torque transmission. Furthermore, the design of the gear box ensures that there is no cross-contamination of the lubricating oil into the product zone.
