Alfa Laval Pumps - Pumping

Alfa Laval is a unique combination of pump specialist and full-range supplier. While we offer a complete and respected portfolio of pumps, our true strength is an in-depth understanding of fluid movement and an ability to relate it to the bigger picture.


Knowledge in motion

PumpingPumps in hygienic processes are in constant motion, providing the driving force for fluids that can be sensitive or challenging to the pumps themselves. In order to minimize risk, they must be carefully engineered to handle a complex variety of issues.

This is why Alfa Laval devotes so much effort to matching pumps with their intended applications.

Alfa Laval is one of the world's largest pump suppliers, offering a flexible portfolio of centrifugal pumps, liquid ring pumps and rotary lobe pumps. But more importantly, we are pumping specialists with a comprehensive knowledge of pump engineering, pump seals and potential pumping challenges.

Our portfolio combines the highest standards of hygiene with trouble-free operation and a truly low cost of ownership.


Performance analyzed

Alfa Laval's pumping expertise has research as its corner stone. In addition to exploring fluid characteristics in our state-of-the-art rheology lab, we make extensive use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), an advanced flow-modelling technology.

By examining factors such as yield stress, shear rate and product behaviour at various temperatures and pressures, our specialists determine how a particular pump will function with a specific liquid in a given system. And by performing chemical analyses of elastomers and other materials, they identify the correct choices for use with a given media.

This information is combined with advanced CFD flow simulations, as well as a database containing 25 years of accumulated knowledge. The result is not only a comprehensive development programme, but also pumps that are fully optimized for efficiency, cleanability and reduced shear.


From form to features

The Alfa Laval difference is a blend of many factors. Our pumps superior performance and high energy efficiency is partly a result of their internal geometry, which ensures excellent flow characteristics and easy CIP. Combined with the pumps robust construction, this results in trouble-free operation and low maintenance requirements.

On the other hand, Alfa Laval pumps offer no shortage of individual features. These range from the precisely balanced design and placement of our impellers to the use of external rather than internal springs on the shaft seals of our centrifugal pumps.

Most of our centrifugal pumps actually share the same mechanical shaft seal, which simplifies part replacement and inventory. Such modular features can be found throughout our pump portfolio, which emphasizes ease of maintenance, retrofitting and seal conversion.


Ongoing development

With our strong pumping focus, we continue making strides in otherwise well-established technologies.

Alfa Laval's core pumping components, the LKH centrifugal pump and the SRU rotary lobe pump, have been on the market for over a decade and are well recognized for their reliability and ease of maintenance. Yet we regularly introduce refinements that enhance their performance and lifetime economy.

In addition, we continue to expand our portfolio with new components. On the one hand, we have broadened our UltraPure line to create a full range of pumps specifically for biopharm use. And on the other, we have introduced the more standardized SolidC centrifugal pump and OptiLobe rotary lobe pump, which meet the needs of a changing market by combining Alfa Laval reliability with greater affordability.
