TYPES OF PUMPS

UNIVERSAL 3 SANITARY PD PUMP

OVERVIEW

The latest addition of Waukesha’s positive displacement pump family is the Universal 3 (U3) Series. This excels in high pressures and can withstand capacity up to 500 psi (34.5 bar). The U3 offers a front loading seal design with no bearings in the product zone. The body of the U3 series pump features a standard 316L stainless steel body and cover that’s perfect for challenging hygienic applications. Rotors on the U3 come standard with “Waukesha 88” non-galling rotors and a standard 304 stainless steel gear case. Assembled and tested in Delavan, WI, the U3 is capable of withstanding the challenges of 24/7 daily processing environments.

Longer service life, resulting from a fresh engineering approach and durable high quality components.

No bearings in the product zone.

High pressure capability; up to 500 psi/34.5 bar*

Unique mechanical seal design utilizes 2 pin stationary seal and special design shaft for rotary seal.

Extended outer seal life. A wave spring, instead of an O-ring, mechanically loads the seal.

Design conforms, to 3-A, ISO 9001:2015

Rotors

The standard clearance rotors in a U3 pump are also hot clearance rotors. They have a temperature range of -40°F (-40°C) to  300°F (82°C). If your pumping factors trend toward a difficult application (high speed, high pressure, non-lubricating) then “Front Face” or “Extra Hot” clearance rotors are recommended. 

Available for model 30, 60, 130 and 220 pumps. Used for reduced damage of particulates.  Preform the same as standard twin wing rotors. NOT TO BE USED ABOVE 300 RPM.

Provide for additional clearance on the front face of the rotors only. Recommend for 180°F (82°C) to 200°F (93°C). NOT FOR USE WITH PRODUCTS EXPERIENCING RAPID TEMPERATURE CHANGES.

Recommend for temperatures up 200°F (93°C). Made of 316 stainless steel rather than standard non-galling alloy 88. Provide additional clearance all around the rotor. VHP (viscous horsepower) is slightly lower when using “316SS” clearance rotors.

Recommend for processing chocolate which tends to build up on the rotors.

May be used with liquid temperatures up to 180°F (82°C). Wine clearance rotors provide additional clearance between the rotor hub and the cover bore area only.

Covers

The optional Relief Cover Feature (also called Vented Cover) is an adjustable, internal by-pass arrangement which can be used for control of the pressure and/or flow. It is bidirectional; that is, the pump flow or rotation can be in either direction.

To learn more about the aseptic pump cover option, give us a call.

The jacketed cover is designed to allow circulation of a heating or cooling medium. The purpose is to help preheat or cool the
pumping head and sustain operating temperature during short shut down periods. It should not be used as a heat exchanger to control pumping temperature during operation.

Ports

Standard port connection. Contact us to learn more about the s-line port.

Used to ensure rigidity of the system. Contact us to learn more about the bevel seat port.

Able to withstand high vibrations, temperatures, and pressures. Contact us to learn more about the i-line port.

More robust than a tri-clamp port and recommend for rougher environments. Contact us to learn more about the q-line port.

Bodies

Standard upright option. Contact us to learn more about the standard body option.

Flat body profile (minimum requirement for standard CIP
installations) allows complete draining of the side-mounted
pump, and provides the CIP solution access to the entire
cover O-ring groove.

UNIVERSAL 2 SANITARY PD PUMP

OVERVIEW

Waukesha’s Universal 2 (U2) Series positive displacement pump includes advanced sanitation technologies, installation flexibility, and long life features. The U2 combines 3-way mounting versatility, introduced by the Universal 1, with new features that increase sanitary performance and extends the pump’s life cycle. The U2 series of pumps is Clean-in-Place (CIP) capable and comes with an optional flat body profile or free draining vertical ports.  This highly robust pump can withstand high pressures up to 500 psi (34.5 bar).

CIP capable with optional flat body profile. Optional drilling on the rotor and body hub is available for challenging cleaning applications.

Longer run times between maintenance.

High pressure capability; up to 500 psi (34.5 bar).

Extended service due to a unique rotor nut design which prevents loosening.

Free draining cover in vertical or horizontal port positions.

Design conforms to 3-A, USDA, EHEDG, CE, and ASME standards.

Flexible, three-way mounting.

Bi-directional flow.

VHP (viscous horsepower) is slightly lower when using hot clearance rotors. Hot clearance rotors are also used when the product viscosity is above 200 CPS.

Available for model 30, 60, 130 and 220 pumps. Used for reduced damage of particulates.  Preform the same as standard twin wing rotors. DO NOT USE ABOVE 300 RPM.
