Korthaus KD Pumps
Revolutionizing Industrial Lobe Pump Technology
Korthaus Metallic Lobe Pumps stand out in the competitive landscape, challenging industry leaders like Vogelsang ®, Börger ®, and Netzsch ®.
Korthaus pumps’ distinguishing feature is the use of metallic helical lobes, contrasting with the rubber lobes used by our competitors.
This design choice not only enhances the durability of our pumps but also significantly improves reliability, especially in demanding environments.
Innovative Design Principle of Korthaus KD Rotary Lobe Pumps
Discover the unmatched reliability of Korthaus KD Rotary Lobe Pumps, a pinnacle of volumetric, self-priming pump technology.
Each pump features symmetrically arranged, non-contacting rotors within its body, ensuring a smooth and continuous fluid transfer from intake to discharge.
The helical rotors operate without contact, delivering a consistent flow without pulsation, and adapt fluidly to varying machine speeds.
Our advanced design minimizes shearing, offering gentle fluid handling even in the most demanding environments.
Advantages Over Rubber-Lobed Competitors
- ✔︎ Enhanced Durability: Unlike rubber lobes, Korthaus metallic lobes resist wear and tear, resulting in a lifespan that is 3 to 6 times longer than conventional rubber-lobed pumps.
- ✔︎ Reduced Maintenance: The precision-engineered design of our metallic lobes ensures minimal contact with the pump body, drastically reducing maintenance needs.
- ✔︎ Operational Efficiency: Korthaus pumps are engineered for uninterrupted operation, which is crucial in water treatment and biogas plants where downtime can be costly.
- ✔︎ Long-Term Cost Savings: While the initial purchase price might be a little higher,
the long-term operational costs are significantly lower when considering parts replacement, maintenance expenses, and even without taking into account the costs related to operational discontinuity.
Patented KD.ROTORS Technology — A Leap in Pump Efficiency
At the heart of Korthaus pumps lies our patented KD.ROTORS technology.
This groundbreaking innovation ensures non-contact operation, allowing for dry running periods and significantly extending wear part lifespan — up to 10 times longer than conventional pump models.
The rotor geometry is fine-tuned for peak efficiency and pulse-free flow, exemplifying the commitment to technological excellence.
Robust Transmission System
Korthaus pumps are equipped with a synchronized gear system, ensuring seamless, contact-free rotor operation.
Integrated overload protection safeguards against potential damage from foreign objects in the fluid.
The KD-G model further enhances versatility with a secondary speed reducer, adaptable to changing work conditions.
User-Friendly Pump Body
Maintenance is a breeze with Korthaus pumps.
All wear parts, including rotors, seals, and gaskets, are easily replaceable without the need to disconnect the pump or piping, thanks to our accessible pump cover design.
Versatile Sealing Options
We offer a range of sealing solutions tailored to your specific needs.
The pump body is further secured with dual seals between the oil bath and gearbox, preventing contamination — a common issue in standard lobe pumps used in industrial and biogas applications.
Cutting-Edge Engineering by Korthaus
Korthaus sets new benchmarks for rotary lobe pump design. Focusing on reducing wear rates and maximizing pump lifespan, their engineers have pioneered the patented KD.PROTECT system.
Unlike competitors, Korthaus pumps feature hardened steel rotors rotating within rubber-coated wear plates, effectively reversing the conventional approach and tripling the wear part lifespan in heavy-duty applications.
KD.PROTECT technology fortifies the pump chamber’s entry with ultra-hard steel plates, capable of breaking down oversized solid particles to prevent blockages or pump crashes.
The pump body is shielded with thick-walled rubber wear plates and shells, enabling it to withstand abrasive materials like sand, thus significantly reducing steel rotor wear.
The result is a pump of exceptional durability, ready to tackle the most challenging conditions with ease.
Ideal for Water Treatment and Biogas Plants
Korthaus Metallic Lobe Pumps are particularly suited for the rigorous demands of water treatment and biogas plants. These sectors often deal with heavily loaded fluids containing solid particles, a challenging environment where the robustness of our pumps provides a clear advantage:
- ✔︎ Handling Heavy Loads: Korthaus pumps efficiently handle fluids with high solid content, ensuring smooth operation in water treatment and biogas applications.
- ✔︎ Reduced Wear and Tear: The metallic lobes are especially effective against the abrasive nature of these fluids, minimizing wear and extending pump life.
- ✔︎ Enhanced Operational Reliability: The superior design ensures consistent performance even under the challenging conditions typical of these industries.
