In the interest of achieving a maximum pump service life the following important rules should be followed:
The pump should not be oversized in terms of capacity. It should be adjustable to handle the required flow or volume. We therefore recommend that speed-variable drives be used.
GATHER gear pumps can be cleaned in mounted condition, i. e. have CIP capability. Supplementing the unit by a steam bypass (see photo) enables the pump to be sterilized in built-in condition (SIP capability).
Some of the fluids and media usually occurring in pumping practice are listed below. Should the medium you are looking for be missing please feel free to contact or technical consultation team for assistance.
