Used extensively within the food, mining, and pharmaceutical industries, lobe-type positive displacement pumps are self-priming and non-contacting, allowing for effective use with slurries, pastes, high viscosity liquids, as well as some suspended solids such as cherries, olives and other food items.

This sectioned industrial positive displacement, stainless, lobe-type pump allows for convenient classroom training in the operation, construction and maintenance of these common process pumps used in industry.

Carefully-planned cut way areas, a clear replacement housing covers and color-coding combine to showcase the internal configuration of the pump. Seal features, hardware locations and bearings are retained, allowing for use in maintenance-related training. This realistic teaching aid will make introductory courses in pump selection, maintenance and operation more productive, realistic and memorable.
