1 Housing
Modular design with an adjustable housing for a long service life.

2 Wear Protection Plates
Highly abrasion-resistant, replaceable wear plates on both sides of the lobes.

3 Timing Gear
Patented timing gear design with decoupled gaskets for pump and gear reliably purges any product leakage and prevents infiltration into the timing gear.

4 Shaft Seals
Easy to service shaft seals with bi-directional and wear-resistant single-acting mechanical seals. Mechanical seals meeting DIN/ISO standards from any manufacturer can be installed.

5 Housing Cover Plate
Rotary lobe, pump and gear seals can easily be serviced or exchanged after removal of the housing cover plate; it is not necessary to disassemble the pump housing or piping.
