Due to the choice of materials and its design, hygieniccentrifugal pump PROLAC HCP is appropriate for applications requiring a high level of hygiene, gentle handling of the product and resistance to chemical agents. This centrifugal pump is particularly suitable as main process pump in the dairy, beverage, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.
Design and features
PROLAC HCP is a range of close-coupled centrifugal pumps
with hygienic design, compact and highly efficient. It is made of a
cold-formed stainless steel casing, impeller, mechanical seal, pump
cover, lantern and shaft, connected to the motor shaft by mechanical
The motor complies with the IEC standards, it is protected with a stainless steel shroud and provided with the height adjustable hygienic designed legs.
The pump is EHEDG certified, it is especially designed for CIP/SIP without disassembly.
The pump is authorized to carry 3-A symbol.
Note: Consult the options of the pumps authorized to carry 3-A symbol.
The PROLAC HCP centrifugal pump is provided with an internal single mechanical seal. The seal is balanced and has a hygienic design. As standard, the stationary part is in carbon and the rotary part is in silicon carbide, the gaskets are in EPDM. However, when required, other material can be used.
There is also an option of assembly of a double mechanical seal made of two identical seals. It helps to upgrade a pump with single seal to double seal and simplifies the mangement of necessary spare parts as the seal is the same.
