Rotary Lobe Pumps (VX 100-64Q)

The Rotary Lobe Transfer Pump VX 100-64Q is a light-weight transportable positive displacement pump with multipurpose usages for various oil recovery applications e.g. several types of skimmers. It can also be used as an off-loading pump.

How it works

The transfer pump has a capacity of 20 m3/h (77 GPM) and it can handle solids of up to 19 mm (0.75 in) and has a self-priming suction lift of up to 7.62 m (25 ft). Its compact size and high performance make it ideal for off-loading medium viscous oils with debris or contaminated, emulsified oil-water mixtures on site. The Rotary Lobe principal ensures that the pump has sensitive shear characteristics, giving smooth pumping action and pulsation-free operation to avoid further emulsification. The pump is manufactured in cast iron with an aluminum pump casing and is fitted with an oil-resistant rubber lobe rotor for maximum performance. The pump noise output is only 78 dB and is fitted with a hydraulic motor for extended use and reliability. Standard hydraulic connectors: pressure 1/2″ Tema 5011 (female), return 1/2″ Tema 5021 (male), standard discharge outlet 3″ Camlock (male).
