What are the advantages and disadvantages of the lobe lobe pump

What are the advantages and disadvantages of the lobe lobe pump? What are the reasons why petroleum and petrochemical, municipal wastewater treatment plants, and manure wastewater treatment industries choose the higher priced lobe lobe pumps?

The lobe lobe pump is suitable for conveying high viscosity, abrasive, corrosive media, suitable for applications in the petroleum and petrochemical, municipal environmental protection, manure wastewater treatment industries, stable operation, no shear, low noise, simple maintenance, and low cost.

Benefits of cam lobe pump

1. High efficiency: reduce industrial electricity cost, the average 3-4 months to pay back the pump investment cost.

2. Low rotational speed: The low rotational speed of the cam lobe pump forms a vacuum-tight cavity in the pump cavity, which improves the conveying efficiency and shortens the contact time between the medium and the pump, extending the service life of the pump.

3、Abrasion and corrosion resistant: three-lobe spiral rubber covered rotor and hard steel protective liner.

4, easy maintenance, low cost: no need to remove the pipeline to replace parts, few parts, low price (10%-15% of the whole pump), a single person can complete.

5. Small footprint, simple piping design, reduce civil construction costs.

6. Strong self-priming, no need to fill the pump, allowing dry running.

Disadvantages of lobe lobe pump

1、Not suitable for the station with pressure over 2.5Mpa, not suitable for conveying sludge with 20% solid content.

2. The price is high compared to other types of pumps (centrifugal pump, screw pump, diaphragm pump).
