Hygienic, efficient pumping

Jon Lawson

Based on the popular Alfa Laval LKH pump range, is an efficient, versatile and hygienic self-priming pump. It uses a combination of air-screw technology and advanced design to meet the most stringent requirements in a range of hygienic industries including food, dairy and beverage. LKH Prime UltraPure versions are ideal for pharmaceutical applications.

Using the combination of advanced air-screw technology, optimised impeller and casing geometry, Alfa Laval LKH Prime exceeds industry expectations for efficient operation, reduced energy consumption and CO₂ footprint. It is engineered to meet the most stringent requirements of the hygienic industries. It is EHEDG certified and authorised to carry the 3-A symbol.

Characterised by reliability for improved operational productivity and designed for cleaning-in-place (CIP) duties containing entrained air, the unit can also pump product, potentially reducing the capital investment when designing process systems - whatever the industry.

Quiet in operation, the new pump reduces sound pressure levels by 80% when compared to pumps using traditional technologies for CIP/entrained air applications. This noise-reducing feature is a smart way to improve the working environment and plant safety for employees.

The pump is easy and cost effective to service and maintain. By sharing common parts with the rest of the pump range, Alfa Laval LKH prime offers low cost of ownership and increased uptime, backed up by the security that comes from Alfa Laval’s global service network.
