APV R Series Pumps

The APV R Series Pump

The APV R Series Pump is ideal for the type of application where the metal rotored pump will not work effectively. When you need to strip clean your pump because the product will not wash out by using a normal CIP process such as meat processing, the R pump overcomes this problem by its simple robust design. The R pump design utilises a floating rotor without rotor nuts. APV R Series rotors are interchangeable and can only be fitted in one position due to a specially modified square shaft. This simple and robust design allows for all sanitary parts to be changed in minutes without removing the pump from the line. The pumps are now fitted with an 'O' ring front cover gasket, making the routine maintenance even easier.

APV uses multi-lobe rubber rotors (twin lobe on the RO) as standard. These deliver very high efficiency for the handling of a wide range of difficult and abrasive products.

As a strip clean unit the APV R Series pump has simple front loaded rubber lip seals for easy replacement. For special applications a range of metal or plastic rotors in several different profiles can be supplied, which are ideal for abrasive or corrosive products. APV R Series pumps can be fitted with enlarged rectangular inlets for metal and dough slurries. Additionally, if entrapped air is a problem, special de-gassing front covers can be used, enabling entrapped air to be removed prior to cooking or processing. If you have a problem with fitting a pump beneath your tank or hopper a front cover outlet can be supplied. For higher discharge applications a cover with outrigger bearings is available.

APV R Series Pumps can be supplied with a variety of drive units, or complete with hoppers or auger feed units.

  • Side Inlet/Outlet is the basic standard design for all size APV Rotary Pumps used for pumping light to medium viscosity products. Round connections are available in all popular fitting types. Four tapped mounting holes are provided in bottom of gear case.
  • Top Feed is designed for use with round bottom outlet tanks or hoppers. Includes removable pedestal support. Available in all size Rotary Pumps and all popular connection types.
  • Top Feed-Rectangular Inlet is a similar configuration to the top feed design but with a large rectangular inlet replacing the standard round connection. The larger inlet accommodates heavy viscous products, or products with large particulates or chunks. Used with hoppers or holding tanks fitted with a mating companion flange outlet. Includes removable pedestal support. Available in pump sizes 2 RI through 700 RI.
  • Side Feed-Rectangular Inlet is designed to adapt to discharge of auger feed hopper, grinders, blenders, or special hopper. Available in pump sizes 4 RI through 700 RI.
  • Heavy Duty Cover contains outboard bearing support to accommodate extended pump shafts for applications with discharge pressure higher than 100 psig (6.8 bar).
  • Vented Cover is available in manual or pneumatic control. Limits maximum discharge pressure at a predetermined setting. Not available on size 0 or heavy duty pumps.
  • Degassing/Deaerating Cover incorporates relief grooves and manifold to relieve trapped gas/air in viscous products. Available with or without front outlet feature on both standard or heavy duty pumps. Not available on sizes 0, 1, or 2.
  • Front Outlet Cover replaces bottom outlet normally provided on RI pumps. Allows pump to be used under low height hopper and reduces discharge piping components.
