Many customers often ask when purchasing and selecting a lobe pump, can the lobe pump be idle? Can they run dry? How long can it run dry? Today Ace lobe pump's will answer this question.
The Ace lobe pump has a double spiral rubber rotor, which meets the needs of most stations in terms of self-priming; in terms of dry running, the Ace lobe pump structure is designed with a separate intermediate isolation chamber containing a light lubricant that lubricates the mechanical seal, thus allowing the lobe pump to run dry for short periods of time in the absence of material.
