PCM Food

PCM Compact small food grade progressive cavity pump

As one of most compact progressing cavity pumps available today, the PCM Compact pump can handle a wide range of fluids with varying viscosities and solids. It provides good suction lift and can tolerate run dry. It offers low Life Cycle Cost, thanks to simple design, cost-efficient maintenance and reduced weight. The pump can be rapidly dismantled for Cleaning Out of Place (COP) in food applications.

The Compact pump is based on the “Moineau” progressing cavity pump principle.

The Compact pump is ideal for small space requirements. Instead of the connecting rod, used on the conventional progressing cavity pumps, the Compact PCP is designed with a floating stator in elastomer without frame. The flexibility of the stator allows the rotor to rotate eccentrically, as the rotor is directly connected to the drive. The pump body is consequently shorter.

In many cases the Compact Series equipped with a frequency inverter can be used as a dosing pump. It is an advantageous replacement for traditional dosing units for viscous, articulate and abrasive products. It’s compactness and robustness makes it particularly suitable for integration in machines and systems.
