The Nova Rotors DX/JX Hygienic progressive cavity pump is state of the art and complies with standards EHEDG and 3A  for use in the food, beverage, chemical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. This series is designed for maximum sterilisation when performing clean in place (CIP). The pump geometry allows for maximum drainage and avoids any possible dead zones.


This hygienic pump is excellent at transferring viscous and non-viscous fluids with or without solids in suspension, it creates extremely low vibrations and pulsations and is therefore ideal for pumping shear sensitive products.


All metal components are in this food grade pump are manufactured from either electropolished stainless steel 304 or 316 and all rubber components comply with food standards. The connection options for this food grade pump include DIN 11851, Clamp ISO 2852, Clamp ASME-3A, Clamp DIN 32676, RJT and SMS 1145.


There are several versions of this hygienic pump, each distinguished by how the motor is coupled to the pump. For the DXO and DXC types, the motor is directly coupled to the pump to ensure a compact and easy maintenance design. The JXO and JXC types are long coupled where a flexible coupling is installed between the pump and motor. The JXO and JXC types are more robust as all the forces during pumping are absorbed by the bearing housing rather than the motor.


Sealing options for this positive displacement hygienic pump include gland packing, gland packing with flushing, single mechanical seal, single mechanical seal with quench, double mechanical seal and tandem double mechanical seal.


This food grade progressive cavity pump is Atex certified for handling flammable fluids and installation in non-safe areas.


This hygienic pump is ideal for many applications in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries, including fruit juice pulp, fruit paste, grapes, grape paste, milk and dairy, sugar industry, breweries, distilleries, creams, shampoo, wine and edible oils.

FAQS

No, definitely not! Progressive pumps will incur damage even after short periods of dry running. Firstly, the stator and rotor require lubrication from the pumped fluid. Dry running without these will cause fast and irreversible damage. The mechanical seal requires lubrication and cooling while the pump is operating. Without the presence of fluid, the mechanical seal will overheat and crack, and this may cause the pump to leak and fluid to enter the motor. There is also the possibility that the motor will burn out. Our advice is to ensure that the pump always has access to fluid while running, the vessel or sump on the inlet side of the pump must never run out of fluid while the pump is active. Level sensors or a float switch can be installed in the fluid chamber ensuring that the pump is turned off in the event there is no fluid. Another way of protecting the pump is to fit a dry running device, this will turn the pump off if it detects that no fluid is entering the pump. If you think that dry running is inevitable, then please speak to us and we will try to select a more suitable pump for your application.
A pump must be primed in order to operate correctly, this means that the pump casing and inlet pipe must be filled with fluid and the air removed before operation. This needs to be done manually by the pump operator for a non-self-priming pump each time the pump is used to avoid damage from dry running. A self-priming pump removes these issues by completing the priming process automatically. The air is removed from the inlet pipework and pump casing when the pump is activated. Self-priming pumps are particularly useful for installations with a suction lift on the inlet side of the pump, the pump will draw the fluid up the pipework by creating a vacuum and removing any air that is present. In ideal conditions, a self-priming pump can lift fluids up to around 8m on the inlet side, however this figure is affected by fluid viscosity, pipework bore and other installation conditions, therefore this figure can be much lower from case to case. Allowances must also be made for wear and tear; suction lift capabilities will be much lower for older and worn pumps.

A clear picture of the pump system is required to make an accurate selection. The main pieces of information required include; a description of the application, bore of pipework, the fluid, viscosity, size and type of solids, flow rate and pressure/head. With these pieces of information, a pump can be sized correctly to ensure it delivers the required flow rate and pressure and that is also operates at its best efficiency point to lower lifetime costs. Knowing if the pump is running intermittently or continuously also allows the correct motor speed to be selected. For instance, a pump running continuously 24/7 will require a slower speed motor rather than a full speed motor. Running the motor slower and oversizing the pump will reduce wear of the motor and the pump, therefore lowering maintenance costs during their lifetime.
An integral bypass is designed to protect the pump and system from overpressure for small periods of time. It is typically set to around 10% higher than the working pressure, it will open and recirculate the fluid inside the pump head when the set pressure is achieved. An integral bypass is only a temporary solution and cannot operate indefinitely, an additional external bypass that runs back to the fluid source is always recommended as a more permanent solution.

NPSH is an acronym for Net Positive Suction Head. NPSH measures the absolute pressure present in a fluid.

There are two main ways that NPSH is expressed in a pump system

NPSHa - This is the amount of Net Positive Suction Head available at the pump inlet. NPSHa demonstrates the amount of pressure acting on a fluid as it enters the pump. This measures the amount of pressure between the liquid staying in its current state and forming vapour bubbles (beginning to boil).

NPSHr - This is the amount of Net Positive Suction Head that the pump requires to operate without experiencing the damaging effect of cavitation, thus causing a dramatic reduction in pump performance.

It is very important to pay attention to these values when making a pump selection. Selecting a pump that requires more NPSH than is available in your system will cause fast and long-lasting damage to the pump and thus you will incur large repair costs and downtime.
