The rotary lobe pump is a self-priming volumetric pump. Two rotors mounted on two shafts are driven by synchronous gears to rotate against each other. A small sealed cavity is formed between the rotor and the pump casing. When the rotor is rotating, the air is removed from the inlet end to form a vacuum and the material is drawn in. The direction of the material conveyed by the lobe pump can be reversed by changing the direction of rotation of the rotor.
So, what are the ways it can be installed? Today Ace lobe pump manufacturer 's will introduce them to you.
I. Standard installation
The pump and motor are mounted on a common steel base and are driven by a flexible coupling, making the whole machine low in height and easy to maintain.
II. Motor up-mounting
The pump and motor are mounted on a common steel base and are driven by means of a belt. The base is equipped with adjusting bolts to adjust the tightness of the belt and the entire exposed rotating parts are contained within a steel guard for safety.
III. Mobile installation
The pump and motor are mounted on a trolley that can be moved flexibly around the site of use. The wheels are lockable and the height of the tail wheel post is adjustable, making it easy to adjust the position of the pump inlet and outlet on rough terrain.
IV. Vehicle Mounted
A lobe pump is installed in the bottom or rear of the tanker and is driven by a hydraulic motor to unload and sweep the tank.
V. Pump with external safety valve
When the pump outlet line is closed for a short time (pipe blockage or other reasons), the material in the outlet line can flow back to the pump inlet through the external safety valve, without causing damage to the pump and the piping system.
VI. Top-in, bottom-out installation
The lobe pump can be installed horizontally by simply aligning the vent cap and oil sight glass so that the material enters the pump by its own gravity, making it suitable for conveying extremely viscous materials.
rotary lobe pumps have a flexible and varied mounting format, which can generally be selected or designed to best suit the actual needs of the customer's site.
