In the food industry, life sciences and fine chemical areas, the homogenization procedure is often used as a process step.
In the treatment of sensitive fluids, sterility plays a particularly important role. With the proven LEWA triplex pump as a basis, hermetic tightness of the pump head chamber is guaranteed and emissions to the environment are prevented. Due to many years of experience in hygienic design of pump heads and operation valves, LEWA offers the highest level of safety for production even with sensitive fluids. The high metering precision also guarantees recipe conformity and repeatability.
In order to meet the necessary quality requirements in every process, aseptic pumps from LEWA can be qualified and validated with all documents provided. Further advantages of LEWA triplex pumps are a long service life and low life cycle costs.
Sterile processes through absolute asepsis
The pneumatically driven two-stage sterilizable homogenization valve guarantees sterility and thus a sterile process.
The hermetically tight fluid chamber guarantees zero leakage from inside to outside and vice versa. This prevents access of atmospheric oxygen.
High process reliability for 24/7 continuous operation
The proven diaphragm operation with a typical diaphragm lifetime of 8,000 hours ensures uninterrupted production cycles.
LEWA triplex as the standard
The standard for aseptic process pumps is the robust and proven LEWA triplex pump series.
Years of experience with sterile applications
With sanitary and hygienic designs, LEWA gained many decades of experience in the hygienic of pump heads and valves in the food, pharmaceutical and life science industries.
LEWA is pleased to offer a customized pipe analysis on the suction and discharge side as a service.
LEWA's triplex series is characterized by very low-noise operation and a low-pulsation flow rate. This is made possible by the even piston offset (eccentric offset). As an option, it is possible to install hygienic pulsation dampers in the piping system.
Food safety & compliance
Due to their design, pumps of the LEWA triplex series ensure a high production and thus quality safety for food and at the same time the conformity with applicable regulations on hygienic standards.
To ensure food safety, regular cleaning is important. Cleaning and sterilization of LEWA triplex pumps is done very easily, thus cleaning times can be reduced significantly.
Configuration for especially critical processes
For processes that require a particularly sterile environment, such as in the pharmaceutical industry, your pump can be designed accordingly.
The pump is designed according to your specific requirements.
Mounting of different homogenizing valves possible
If you have specific requirements regarding the homogenizing valve, this request is easy to realize, since LEWA triplex pumps can be equipped with various customer-side homogenizing valves.
Production scale-up possible
A scale-up of the whole process is easily achieved without any problems by the various sizes of LEWA triplex pumps. This is accomplished without changing the essential functional characteristics of the pump and its cleanability.
|Type||Flow rate [l/h]||CIP rate [l/h] *||Discharge pressure [bar]|
|Pilot plant G3S||500 -1,000||1,000||450-500|
|Option 1 G3F||5,000||5,000||280|
|Option 2 G3G||10,000||10,000||250|
|Option 3 G3M||15,000||15,000||290|
|Option 4 G3R||18,000||18,000||300|
*) An external CIP pump cleans the entire system and thus also the homogenizer according to the overall applicable cleaning requirements. This results in the actual CIP rate.
When critical, environmentally hazardous, toxic, or flammable fluids and suspensions need to be reliably conveyed or metered in high-pressure processes, there is no alternative to hermetically sealed metering pumps, process diaphragm pumps, and metering systems from LEWA. Hermetically sealed LEWA pumps with pressures up to 1200 bar are the first choice for the production of chemical intermediate and end products.
