LEWA triplex® homogenizing pump

You can rely on LEWA as a leading manufacturer of special aseptic solutions when it comes to the treatment of sensitive fluids in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. The LEWA homogenizing pump offers hermetic diaphragm technology and thus both the highest production safety for controlled processes and consistently high end product quality.

The LEWA triplex in hygienic design achieves flow rates of up to 18 m3/h or discharge pressures of up to 450 bar.

LEWA triplex process diaphragm pumps for high pressure homogenization

Hermetically tight, safe and reliable.

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. 

Good reasons to choose the LEWA homogenizing pump

The LEWA triplex pump in hygienic design is optimal for the homogenization of highly sensitive fluids and guarantees trouble free production and efficient cleaning times.

Sterile processes through absolute asepsis

The pneumatically driven two-stage sterilizable homogenization valve guarantees sterility and thus a sterile process.

Hermetic tightness

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.

Excellent cleanability

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.

Options

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.

Individual design

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.

Performance data

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.
