Higher standards are required in the pharmaceutical industry than in the food industry to pumping products like purified water (PW), water for injection (WFI), etc.
PROLAC HCP-WFI Hygienic Centrifugal Pump
PROLAC HCP is a range of close-coupled centrifugal pumps with hygienic design, compact and highly efficient. It is made of a cold-formed stainless steel casing, impeller, mechanical seal, pump cover, lantern and shaft, connected to the motor shaft by mechanical compression. The motor complies with the IEC standards, it is protected with a stainless steel shroud and provided with the height adjustable hygienic designed legs. The pump is EHEDG certified,it is especially designed for CIP/SIP without disassembly.
Design and features
Using the HCP centrifugal pumps as a base, we have designed the HCP-WFI model, which adds the most popular options in pharmaceutical applications to the PROLAC HCP pump. HCP pumps are sanitary grade centrifugal pumps designed in accordance with EHEDG recommendations. The HCP can easily be cleaned by using chemical products (CIP) and suitable for steam sterilisation (SIP).
Sanitary grade mechanical seal, according to EHEDG standards, with hard faces avoids the possibility of dust traces contaminating the product being pumped.
