The new GEA Hilge Novatwin twin screw pump is part of the GEA Varipump line and is designed for the milk and dairy, beverage, food, pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, pet food and personal care industries.
The self-priming, hygienic GEA Hilge Novatwin enables safe operation with low pulsation and low noise levels at high product viscosities, temperatures up to 135°C and differential pressures up to 25 bar. The system pressure of 30 bar also allows the pump to be used in high-pressure applications. It enables one pump to handle both sensitive viscous media at low speed and cleaning media in the CIP process at up to 3,000 rpm. It also works at a constant flow at different pressures and volumes.
Other advantages of the new pump include the axial, low-pulsation conveying so that even sensitive products with large solids remain intact and good suction performance due to tight manufacturing tolerances, resulting in narrow gaps in the pump. Its hygienic design ensures fast and safe cleaning. It also has many different combinations of screw diameters and pitches to allow adaptation, depending on the application.
