OptiLobe Technology Features

  • Advanced seal design and heavy-duty, long-life bearings contribute to more uptime and higher productivity
  • Truly front-loading, self-setting seals with seal faces directly in contact with the media ensures superior cleanability and lubrication, improving seal life
  • Shaft support made of a rigid one-piece bearing housing and heavy-duty L10 tapered roller bearings with a minimum life of 20,000 hours. Reduces the possibility of rotor head contact damage
  • Optional heating/cooling front covers for processes, such as sugar solutions, butter and margarines, marmalades, body butters, gels and lotions, where products harden at low temperatures.

The OptiLobe is known for easy maintenance. Factory-set shimming makes changing the rotor easy without the need to adjustment or retiming. Parts replacement, when required, is also simplified; high-precision components are interchangeable for pumps of the same size.
