The Alfa Laval LHK centrifugal pumps were specifically designed for the hygienic requirements of the food, dairy, beverage, and personal care industries. These pumps offer high efficiency and gentle product handling. The robust design with tight tolerances and an advanced impeller design gives it excellent efficiency. Many features for cleanability including an external seal which has become highly desirable. Many options for serviceability, integration into systems, and flow rates, pressures, and other technical specifications.

High efficiency

A precision-engineered pump and motor provides high efficiency and gentle product treatment. The robust design and tight tolerances together with the advanced impeller design minimize recirculation and ensure the efficient transfer of energy.

Optimal pump design

The impeller design ensures efficient and gentle handling of the product as it moves through the pump. This ensures product integrity and minimizes NPSHr (Net Positive Suction Head required).

Low energy consumption

Making pump energy use more efficient presents huge potential for energy savings. The optimized pump design and premium motor of Alfa Laval LKH centrifugal pumps often deliver greater energy efficiency than similar premium pumps and up to 50% compared to similar mid-range pumps.

Cleanability and hygienic design

The key is the attention to detail. Controlled compression gaskets, crevice free internals, an external mechanical seal, and an optimized impeller with balancing holes all ensure that the pump is truly cleaned during a time effective CIP cycle. Perfectly aligned components and joints with O-rings tightened to a predefined compression minimize the elastomer product contact surfaces, which also safeguards hygiene.

External shaft seal hygienic and serviceable

By positioning the shaft seal outside the pump, difficult-to-clean components do not come into direct contact with the product. In addition, the front-loading design enables quick and easy replacement, providing more uptime with lower maintenance costs. Interchangeable single, flushed and double seals simplify spare parts inventory.

Warranty

Alfa Laval provides a three-year warranty for all non-wearing parts, provided genuine parts are used.

If self-priming is an operation, consider the new Alfa Laval Prime centrifugal pump.

Based on the market-leading Alfa Laval LKH pump, Alfa Laval LKH Prime is an efficient, versatile and hygienic self-priming pump using a combination of air-screw technology and advanced design to meet the most stringent requirements in the food, dairy, beverage, home and personal care industries. Primarily used for Cleaning-in-Place duties containing entrained air, it can also pump product, reducing capital investment. Now with an additional model size providing extended performance envelope.

LKH centrifugal pumps are currently available in 13 sizes to handle capacities up to 500 m3/hour and pressures up to 190 H/(m). Options include types of shaft seals, flushing arrangements and elastomers.

Another notable feature is the compression coupling. This securely attaches the stub shaft to the motor shaft with precision alignment. Setup is simple, operations secure, and noise and vibration minimized. Whats more, the coupling helps prolong the service life of both shaft seal and motor.
