Innovative Self-priming Pump Does Double Duty For Dairies

Reduce Total Cost of Ownership With Alfa Laval LKH Prime For CIP Return and Dairy Product Handling

A new self-priming pump is based on the Alfa Laval LKH range of centrifugal pumps, which is world-renowned for hygienic design and gentle product treatment. The Alfa Laval LKH Prime is constructed for pumping liquids containing entrained air, making it an excellent choice for emptying dairy tanks and as a CIP return pump.

Reduced Energy Consumption

The hydraulic efficiency of the Alfa Laval LKH Prime reaches over 50 percent (Image 1). This means an advantage over liquid-ring pumps, which typically reach efficiencies of approximately 30 percent. Its high efficiency is attainable at a wide flow range.

Improved Working Environment

AlfaLaval2May2016The Alfa Laval LKH Prime reduces the noise emission level by up to 80 percent compared to conventional liquid-ring pumps. Liquid-ring pumps have always posed the challenge of excessive noise calling for protective measures. With a noise level of a mere 74dBA, the Alfa Laval LKH Prime efficiently eliminates the need for these.
 

Reducing Installation Costs

While the Alfa Laval LKH Prime is designed with CIP return in mind, it may also be used to pump dairy products. Because of this ability it is possible to eliminate the need for a separate liquid-ring pump (Image 3) thus saving both capital and installation costs.

Like the other pumps in the LKH family, the Alfa Laval LKH Prime is EHEDG certified and authorized to carry the 3-A symbol.

Service is a key element of any Alfa Laval offering and the commonality of spares, including the shaft seal, in the LKH range translates into reduced spare parts inventory and fast maintenance.
