Application areas

In the interest of achieving a maximum pump service life the following important rules should be followed:

  • Intake: The maximum amount of fluid to be conveyed by the pump should flow into the pump freely and without obstructions.
  • differential pressure the pump must overcome should be as high as necessary but as low as possible!

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.

Application in High-Temperature or Sterile Areas (SIP)

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).
