- Gentle movement of larger, shear-sensitive products
- Increased product throughput
- Sanitary construction of FDA compliant materials
- Easy maintenance
- Improved safety
- Quick and simplified assembly/disassembly
- Minimal plant footprint for the power and capacity
The Unibloc UltraLobe pump delivers the same quality as the popular Unibloc 600 Series yet significantly increases volume and throughput for the processor. All within a similar footprint, the Unibloc UltraLobe gently handles larger, shear-sensitive food products with no sacrifice in product integrity. Delivering a flow rate of up to 1170 GPM (4429 LPM), the new Unibloc 700 Series is ideal for food and beverage, pharmaceutical, personal care, pulp and paper processors, and chemical industries.
Improving Safety and Sanitation
The Unibloc UltraLobe’s precision-engineered construction of 316L stainless steel for all wetted metal parts ensures compliance with FDA standards and lays the foundation for a pump tailored to meet the stringent requirements of hygienic applications. In addition, the pump incorporates Unibloc’s innovative rotor design that eliminates the need for plastic components, o-rings, and rotor bolts, a game-changer for food processing that demands daily strip-down sanitation procedures.
UHT’s patented QuickStrip® design is incorporated in the Unibloc UltraLobe, featuring one-way assembly and disassembly and the patented safety swing arm. These exclusive features enhance the safety of plant personnel and elevate product integrity by mitigating the risk of foreign material contamination.
In food processing plants, it’s common to use 6-inch diameter pipes throughout the facility. While it’s usually the case that larger pump capacity corresponds to larger pipes, the Unibloc UltraLobe breaks this convention by being specifically engineered to accommodate commonly available 6-inch outlet pipe. Additionally, operators can precisely control the RPM from zero to 500 ensuring the product meets exact specifications.
