The LKHSP self-priming centrifugal pump is specially designed for pumping liquids containing air or gas without loosing its pumping ability. The pump is for use in food, chemical, pharmaceutical and similar industries. The LKHSP self-priming pump can be used for emptying tanks, as CIP return pump and similar applications where there is a risk of air or gas
mixing with the liquid in the suction line. The pump is self-priming and is capable of creating a vacuum of 0.6 bar, depending of the pump size.
The LKHSP pump consists of a tank, a NO non-return valve, a NC non-return valve, a tee and a standard LKH pump.The self-priming pump is available in sizes LKHSP-10, LKHSP- 20,LKHSP-25, LKHSP-35 and LKHSP-40.
The LKHSP self-priming pump is equipped with either an external single or a flushed shaft seal. Both have stationary seal rings in acid-resistant steel AISI 329 with sealing surface in silicon carbide and rotating seal rings in carbon. The secondary seal of the flushed seal is a long lasting lip seal. LKHSP self-priming pump may also be equipped with a double mechanical shaft seal.
