The helicoidal pump KIBER KTE is a progressive cavity pump with a hopper and endless screw feeder, compact and robust design used for decanting the viscous products, masses, pastes and liquids with solids in suspension. Its main application is for transferring whole or destemmed grapes and its design allows to install it right under the destemming machine. It also can be used for red wine devatting.
KIBER KTE Progressive Cavity Pump
Friction between the rotor and the stator creates a vacuum in the inlet area thereby helping the entry of the product into the pump. The turning motion of the rotor makes the cavities between the rotor and the stator move forward and transport the product to the outlet.
Design and features
To improve solids particles pass towards its inner with the best possible deal and to avoid its break, each endless screw has a big diameter and a specific design for each model pump.
The hoppers have a safety grid, drainage and a minimum level resistive sensor to stop the pump in the event there is not product in its inner and to avoid the running dry.
The pumps are supplied mounted on stainless steel trolley with swivel wheels with brake. Also, an ergonomic handle prepared to mount an electrical panel is included.
