rotary lobe pump fastened onto a mobile base - this
is the NETZSCH TORNADO®
Mobile. The concept of mounting the equipment onto a
car or truck trailer makes it possible to pump large
quantities of fluids with solid content, wastewater
and slurries at the most unusual of sites. Based on
the given application, a TORNADO®
rotary lobe pump is selected in the appropriate size
and then simply installed onto a trailer. High capacity
and low space requirements make the TORNADO®
Mobile ideal for use in any disaster situation.

Performance, Reliability, Maintenance in Place
GSS Technology - Gearbox Security System
Provides positive separation between pump head/product
seals and pump gear box
Protects bearing and timing gears extending operational
Eliminates product ingress into gear box in the
unlikely event of product seal failure
Eliminates the risk of gear oil ingress into
the pump media
Reduces product seal replacement costs
Our design - your benefit: low life cycle costs
1 Front Cover
Rotors, cover seal and product seals can be accessed
for inspection, service or replacement by simply removing
the front cover. Disassembly of the inlet and outlet
pipework and pump housing is not necessary.
2 Wear Plates
Abrasion and chemically resistant, replaceable wear
plates are fitted both sides of the rotors.
Straight sided or helical rotors are selected to suit
individual application requirements. Rotors are available
as bi-lobe, tri-lobe or four-lobe and wide a range
of materials are available.
4 Housing Crescents
Modular construction allows for the crescents to be
simply replaced should wear occur. Pump life time
can be further extended with the option of replaceable
5 Product Seals
Wide range of product seals and materials are available,
which are selected to suit individual application
requirements. Seal arrangements include easy access
connections for seal quench or flush.
6 Pump Gear Box
The patented gear box design includes NETZSCH GSS-Technology
separating the pump head from the gear box which eliminates
cross contamination between the pump media and gear
frames supporting twelve pump sizes provide standard
solutions for flowrates from 1 m³/h to 1,000m³/h up
TORNADO® XLB - TORNADO® XB - TORNADO® MB
NETZSCH TORNADO® pumps can be selected and configured to suit individual duty, application and installation requirements. The wide range of wetted materials and product seals available cover the majority of applications in the Environmental & Energy, Chemical & Paper and Oil & Gas process industries.
