The new Alfa Laval DuraCirc circumferential piston pump delivers robust design, high efficiency, and reliable operation; hygienic assurance with EHEDG as well as 3-A certification as standard; and easy maintenance. This article first appeared in the October 2021 issue of Food and Drink Business.

Alfa Laval portfolio manager Pumps Russ Kelly says: “The DuraCirc is a game changer. It’s everything users want, all in a single pump – the perfect balance of supreme performance, superior hygiene, and simpler service.”

The DuraCirc pump range has robust construction and features a high efficiency design, wide performance envelope and low net positive suction head (NPSH) requirement. With flow rates up to 150m3/h (660gpm), the pump is capable of handling operating pressures up to 40 bar (580psi), which is 15 per cent higher than all other circumferential piston pumps available today. Optional ports make it easy to replace existing pumps from Alfa Laval and other brands with the DuraCirc, without having to adapt pipework.

Certified to meet EHEDG guidelines and 3-A Sanitary Standards, the DuraCirc pump assures process integrity and product quality.
