Alfa Laval offers hygienic pumping with more efficiency and less noise

Based on the market-leading Alfa Laval LKH pump range, the LKH Prime is an efficient, versatile and hygienic self-priming pump. It uses a combination of air-screw technology and advanced design to meet the most stringent requirements in a range of hygienic industries, including food, dairy, beverage and home & personal care. LKH Prime UltraPure versions are ideal for pharmaceutical applications.

Energy efficient: Using the combination of advanced air-screw technology, optimised impeller and casing geometry, the Alfa Laval LKH Prime exceeds industry expectations for efficient operation, reduced energy consumption and carbon dioxide footprint. The Alfa Laval LKH Prime is engineered to meet the most stringent requirements of the hygienic industries. It is EHEDG-certified and authorised to carry the 3-A symbol.

Versatile: Characterised by reliability for improved operational productivity and designed for clean-in-place (CIP) duties containing entrained air, the Alfa Laval LKH Prime can also pump product, potentially reducing capital investment costs when designing process systems — whatever the industry.

Significantly reduced noise levels: Quiet in operation, the Alfa Laval LKH Prime reduces sound pressure levels by 80% compared with pumps using traditional pump technologies for CIP/entrained air applications. This noise reducing feature is a smart way to improve the working environment and plant safety for employees.

Easy to maintain: The pump is easy and cost effective to service and maintain. By sharing common parts with the Alfa Laval LKH pump range, the Alfa Laval LKH prime offers low cost of ownership and increased uptime, supported by the security that comes from Alfa Laval’s global service network.
