Alfa Laval Solid-C Centrifugal Pump

The SolidC pump is designed for standard duty applications, like pumping CIP (Cleaning In Place) solutions, utilities, water (processing, heating, cooling),  ashing machines, simple transport duty within working range. SolidC is suited for use in the food, dairy, beverage, personal care, pharmaceutical, light chemical and water industries.

Standard design

The SolidC pump is designed for CIP with emphasis on large internal radii and cleanable seals. SolidC has a stainless steel shroud for protection of the motor, and the complete unit is supported on four adjustable legs.

Shaft seals

The SolidC pump is equipped with either an external single or a flushed shaft seal. Both have stationary seal rings in acid-resistant steel AISI 329 with sealing surface in silicon carbide and rotating seal rings in carbon. The secondary seal of the flushed seal is a long lasting lip seal.
