The special features of SolidC UltraPure centrifugal pumps include an external shaft seal and spring, a defined-compression O-ring on the back plate, crevice-free design and special standards-compliant materials throughout.
The SolidC centrifugal pump is a standard duty pump for basic transport duties in hygienic applications. An exceptional value compared with other pumps in its class, it provides reliable, low-maintenance operation. With its hygienic design, cost-effective operation and quick, easy maintenance, the SolidC offers excellent value for money.
For more demanding duties, Alfa Laval offers the premium LKH centrifugal pump. Using our pump selection software, Alfa Laval or one of our sales and working partners can help you select the right pump for your specific application.
Solid hygienic design
SolidC centrifugal pumps ensure consistent performance and maximum cleanability. The pump interior is designed to provide control of surface contamination and feature O-rings with defined compression. Compliance with 3A, CE, FDA and EHEDG requirements provide an excellent level of hygiene.
Engineered for high product integrity, the SolidC has a semi-open impeller, which provides gentle product handling. Smooth crevice-free surfaces eliminate any dead zones where bacteria can thrive. In addition, the SolidC is easy to clean in place and employs FDA-approved elastomers.
Easy, low-cost maintenance
A few minutes are all that is required to change wear parts. Hassle-free replacement of the easy-to-access front-loading shaft seal, for instance, maximizes uptime and minimizes maintenance costs. Other features that contribute to solid maintenance routines and cost savings are the easy-to-disassemble clamp between casing and back plate and easy-to-mount O-ring.
