Lobe Pumps

Lobe pumps use rotating lobes, similar to gears, to create a consistent flow of fluids that moves liquids at a steady speed through the system. The rotary lobe pump uses these lobes as a mechanism to create a suction or vacuum that draws in and captures the fluid in its chamber before passing it through.

The DAE Pumps lobe pumps are the industry’s best in distributing sludge, pastes, mud, other thick fluids, corrosive materials, and fine abrasives with ease. Our no-clog heavy-duty lobe pumps can handle hard solids up to 3-inch, froth, dissolved air flotation (DAF), and other fluid/gas mixtures. These industrial pumps provide a strong vacuum with excellent suction lift, working well with any application with a low net positive suction head available. DAE Pumps lobe pumps are used in a variety of applications including pulp and paper, oil, gas, chemical, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, wastewater, biotech, and many other industries.

These positive displacement pumps move fluids and solids without clogging the chamber or lobes and pump them through the system. DAE Pumps lobe pumps provide a constant repeated pumping action that creates very minimal vibration. Our lobe pumps are used to pump sludge, slurry, and other fluids to and from thickeners, separators, digesters, and clarifiers without interruption.

DAE Pumps provides multiple types of industrial and heavy-duty lobe pumps to fit your specific project requirement. Our lobe pumps reduce wear, are easy to clean and sanitize, and they last. We make a large selection of affordable heavy-duty lobe pumps to choose from. Our long-lasting and reliable lobe pumps outperform the competition, giving you complete peace-of-mind.

Gala Series Heavy-Duty Lobe Pumps

The DAE Pumps Gala series heavy-duty lobe pumps are rugged, reliable, and cost-effective pumps for transporting a variety of viscous fluids like mud, sludge, and pastes, as well as corrosive materials. These durable pumps offer a maximum flow rate of up to 531 GPM and come in 2-inch, 3-inch, 4-inch, 6-inch, 8-inch, and 10-inch sizes. The Gala series comes in different materials for multiple types of applications, and allows for easy access for quick cleaning, sanitizing, and maintenance.

Rotor Designs of Lobe Pumps

The design of the lobe pump rotor is important in the performance of the pumps. There are two design of the rotors, a wing, and a rounded design. The rounded lobes are more traditional and can come in a single or multiple lobes. The more lobes on the rotor result in less pump vibration. The wing design can allow for larger size solids to move through the same size lobe pump using the round design. The DAE Pumps lobe pumps are available with multiple options, and we can also build a custom design to meet the needs of your specific requirements.

Pumps for Food Processing

Food Processing

The multi-purpose design of the DAE Pumps lobe pumps provides gentle processing of food products without damaging them. The Gala Series Lobe Pumps are chosen by multiple processing plants for use in transferring, waste, mash & peel, centrifuge feed & thickening, and other processes.  Our pumps are capable of moving fluids forwards and backward. These non-clogging reliable systems provide worry-free operation with no pulsation, low shear, and can process liquids with high solids. 

Pumps for Wastewater Treatment

Wastewater

DAE Pumps lobe pumps provide an even, pulsation-free flow of liquid that makes them ideal for transferring sludge and feeding dewatering equipment. Our lobe pumps performance is the best in typical wastewater applications, including dewatering, primary & secondary sludge, digested & thickened sludge, sludge transfer, and scum & septage. Our pumps handle thick sludge that contains grit, abrasives, and debris often found in wastewater sludges. In dissolved air floatation or DAF applications, we provide systems that can handle excessive air and other floatable debris such as hair and rags through the pump.

Pumps for Oil & Gas Applications

Oil & Gas

The reliable DAE Pumps lobe pumps manage a wide range of viscous fluids that contain heavy abrasive solids down to refined, clean material. Our pumps can handle the harshest operating conditions, including induced gas floatation froth, vapor-liquid separation, fuel transfer, tank cleaning, drilling fluids, barge loading, and many other oil and gas applications. The DAE Pumps lobe pump provides a pulsation-free flow of liquid, making it ideal for all oil and gas processing.

DAE Pumps lobe systems meet API 676 requirements.
