Universal Twin Screw Series - Positive Displacement Pumps

Product Type:
Pumps / Positive Displacement Pumps

Universal Twin Screw Series pumps offer reliability, process flexibility, and smooth operation.

Features

Benefits

  • Reliable performance - Screws made from Waukesha Alloy 88 non-galling material allow the pump to run through incidental contact and reduce risk of pump damage if screws make contact
  • Gentle product handling - Pumps large particulates without degradation
  • Responsive service - Extensive global distribution network with certified repair centers provide quick response times for parts and service
  • Easy maintenance - Front loaded access to product side seals
  • Process flexibility - Low inlet pressure requirement and a wide range of operating speeds allow for multiple duties including process and CIP supply. Bi-directional flow capability without making modifications to the pump.
  • Smooth operation - Reduces slip pulse in low inlet pressure, low viscosity, and high pressure conditions
  • Reduced noise levels - Operating principle virtually eliminates pressure fluctuations
  • EHEDG (Type EL Class I) certification applies for UTS pump sizes 015 to 220 with EPDM, FKM or FFKM gaskets and SiC, TC or C mechanical seal material
Theory of Operation

Delivering Axial Flow with Gentle Product Handling


The Universal Twin Screw delivers axial flow with gentle product handling and the ability to pump shear sensitive fluids with larger particulates in lower pressure applications. 

As the screws mesh together, they form multiple sets of “sealed cavities” which give the pump positive pressure capability to carry product from the inlet to the outlet in a smooth, consistent manner.

Three screw pitch options are available for all model sizes to provide users with a wide selection of pressure and flow rate profiles depending on application and particle size requirements.

Our widest pitch rotor has a smaller helical surface and is used for applications requiring lower pressures and higher flow rates

Our narrow pitch rotor has a larger helical surface and is used when applications require higher pressures and have lower flow rates.  The narrow pitch also provides the most optimal suction capacity.

The mid-range pitch offers a balance in pressure and flow velocities between the larger and smaller screw profiles.
