The newly designed Muniflo pump is engineered
to handle all the municipal wastewater product
applications normally associated with ordinary
progressive cavity or other positive
Unique, contoured rotors produce utmost efficiency for pumping both thin and high viscosity products. The round lobes have no sharp cutting edges, so delicate handling of products with discrete particles in suspension can be accomplished with minimal shear damage. Gentle handling is also aided by the gentle, rolling action of the rotors, which produces an exceptionally smooth, even discharge with minimal agitation, pulsation, or aeration.
Controlled tolerance and precision timing insure that neither rotor-to-rotor nor rotor-to-pump-body contact occurs, thus the pump can run dry for long periods of time without damage. This also assures minimal wear.
The Muniflo pump's front cover is easily opened for rapid inspection or cleaning without the need to disconnect the suction or discharge pipelines. The pumping chamber is separated from the gear housing, which permits visual leak detection and reduced heat transmission. This also eliminates any possibility of oil contamination of product or product contamination of oil.
The product enteres the suction port and is gently drawn into the pockets formed between the rotors and the rotor case. Lobes on each rotor push the product 180° around the interior of the contoured rotor case and out through the discharge port. Each rotor, equipped with 3 lobes, moves in opposite directions to the other to provide a smooth, uniform flow of material.
