Self-priming Centrifugal Pumps
Based on the market-leading Alfa Laval LKH pump range, Alfa Laval LKH Prime is an efficient, versatile and hygienic self-priming pump that uses a combination of air-screw technology and advanced design to meet the most stringent requirements in a range of hygienic industries including food, dairy, beverage, home and personal care. Primarily used for Cleaning-in-Place duties containing entrained air, it can also pump product, reducing capital investment.
The LKH Prime is a highly efficient self-priming pump, which meets the requirements of hygienic applications. The ability to evacuate air from the suction pipe combined with a low noise level and high pumping efficiency makes the LKH Prime ideal for tank emptying and CIP return applications. With verified effective CIP cleanability, LKH Prime can be used as a product pump as well.
Based on the LKH, the LKH Prime is designed to be cleaned in place. The LKH Prime has a stainless steel shroud for protection of the motor, and the complete unit is supported on four adjustable stainless steel legs. Unlike conventional self-priming pumps the LKH Prime has an impeller which can be trimmed for any application.
The LKH Prime is equipped with either an external single or a double mechanical shaft seal. Both have stationary seal rings made from stainless steel AISI 329 with sealing surface in silicon carbide and rotating seal rings in carbon as standard.
