Thomson Process Equipment and Engineering Ltd. How does the Clean in Place CIP and Sterlise in Place SIP Function work on a Wright Flow Technologies Sterilobe Pump

Clean In Place and Sterilise in Place Pharmaceutical Rotary Lobe Pumps – The Sterilobe Pump from Viking Pump’s Hygienic Range (formerly Wright Flow Technologies)

How does the Sterilobe Rotary Lobe Pump design clean and sterilise in place?

The Sterilobe Clean and Sterilise in Place Pump range by Viking Pump Hygienic Range are Hygienic Rotary Lobe Pumps designed with sterile, food, and pharmaceutical applications in mind.

If you have an application that needs a pump to be CIP or SIP (Clean and Sterilise in Place), Viking Pump Hygienic Pump Series (formerly by Wright Flow Technologies) ensures that every detail of the Rotary Lobe Pump design is centered around achieving the highest standards of Clean in Place (CIP) and Sterilise in Place (SIP). The Sterilobe is good for applications needing higher temperatures and higher pressure with a max temperature of 150°C and pressure of 15 bar

There are no voids, crevasses, or turbulence-inducing internal areas for cells to hide and grow in, so the cleaning media can work efficiently and effectively.

The Clean and Sterilise in Place Pump design pushes the effectiveness even further, as the Sterilobe pump range is fully self-draining when orientated in the vertical port position.

The Mechanical Seal faces are in line with the back of the pump rotors which makes it much easier for the cleaning fluid to reach the area around the seals, often the most troublesome areas in other designs.

The front cover O-Ring groove is contoured to follow the shape of the casing, which reduces the area where liquid can be trapped.

The Sterilobe pump is made by Wright Flow Technologies for Viking Pump’s Hygienic Range of Pumps for Food and Pharma industries. Thomson Process Equipment and Engineering are the main distributor and pump supplier of  Viking Pump Hygienic Range (formerly Wright Flow Technologies) Viking Pump in Ireland

Sterilobe Pumps and Rotary Lobe Pump Skids are made to order. They can be made using any materials required for the Pharmaceutical or Food Process. They are used in Membrane Filtration, pumping Protein Broth, and the manufacture of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs), Baby food, edible oils, eggs, fish, meat, poultry and Personal Care Products.
