What is the rotary lobe?


Rotary pumps have over the last hundred plus years thrilled the market by offering efficient pumping solutions. Among the most creative inventions in the rotary line of pumps is the rotary lobe pump, with offers a non-contact operational mode. For effective outcome, a set of two lobed gears are housed in a large chamber where they can be easily rotated by the fluid in motion. The lobed gears are typically called the lobes, and the entire system the rotary lobe pump, or just rotary lobe machine. As a special class of the rotary claw vacuum pump series, the lobed type allows for unidirectional flow of the fluid when pumped.

The functionality of a lobed rotary claw vacuum pump is based on allowing the fluid through a constricted zone. This increases its pressure, while allowing for any fluid trapped between the lobe cavities be pushed forward during pumping. The constriction is also meshed as to allow for the interior flow of the fluid into the interior cavity pockets without passing through the lobes. With each lobe being tied to an independent shaft, the process undergoes a series of repeats forcing the fluid through the pump casing.

There are various applications of the lobed type of rotary pumps among them being in the polymers processing, paper, soap, paint, rubber, pharmaceuticals and the food industries. These applications makes the rotary claw vacuum pumps superior in that the direction of flow of the fluid can be easily changed depending on the needs of the user.
