TUFFGEAR NEAT SOAP INTERNAL GEAR PUMP

The challenges while transferring a tricky product like neat soap are many.

It must be transferred at high temperatures (80 -140 deg c), depending upon the type of neat soap a manufacturer is going to make, laundry or toilet soap and the process.

If there is a drop in temperature, the neat soap becomes the common soap, which we all see and use every day. Now that will be a difficult product to transfer, isn’t it?

This range of temperature means that the viscosity of the neat soap varies highly. Experts from industry have done studies and found it out to be 300 to 3000 cps at pumping temperature.

Additionally, neat soap is also shear thinning, which means that under shear the viscosity of the neat soap reduces.

This creates a unique problem for the manufacturer as to get a pump designed suitably for his neat soap, he must sacrifice the performance and even the efficiency of the pump they might use.

Frequently we see, overdesigned pumps with exceedingly high clearance and motor powers which are at least 2-3 times the power which is generally required for neat soap.

Tuffgear Neat Soap Internal Gear Pumps are designed keeping just that in mind.

Our R&D team did various trials and experiments with the clearance inside the Tuffgear Neat Soap Internal Gear Pumps, so that an optimum clearance can be achieved, which transfers this wide viscosity ranging neat soap, without any problem and all the time, giving a high performance with best efficiency.

There are various features of Tuffgear Neat Soap Internal Gear Pumps which make it suitable for transfer of a tricky product like Neat Soap.

  • The optimum clearance design of the Tuffgear Neat Soap Internal Gear Pump, which makes sure that cavitation is not happening at the suction side of the pump and slip is not happening at the discharge side of the pump. A uniform flow rate is achieved with Tuffgear Neat Soap Internal Gear Pump even when there is fluctuation in viscosity of the neat soap due to temperature and shear.
  • Installing a Pressure Relief Valve in a neat soap pump is difficult as the soap will settle and jam the PRV. The unique U- Bend design of the Tuffgear Neat Soap Internal Gear Pump do not use a spring type PRV, but instead it uses a U pipe, with diaphragm which ruptures in case of a high back pressure, relieving the pressure and thereby saving the pump from getting damaged
  • The issue of motor tripping frequently is also resolved as there is no cavitation.
  • The larger od shaft of Tuffgear Neat Soap Internal Gear Pump ensures that in the event of an unintentional startup of the pump without flushing steam prior, does not damage the shaft or the bushing. This is since the larger diameter shaft can take more load/torque requirements.
  • When required in case of Optional Jacketing, the higher surface area of the bracket jacket of Tuffgear Neat Soap Internal Gear Pump ensures that the heating is even and uniform in all the areas of the bracket. This means there are no areas where there are chances of the neat soap being solidified.
  • The area where the packing sits on the shaft is hard chromed in a Tuffgear Neat Soap Internal Gear Pump. This is meant to provide extra life to the shaft against wear. The result is higher life of the sealing arrangement.
  • The advantages of a truly back pullout design of Tuffgear Neat Soap Internal Gear Pump are still present, which means that the pump maintenance downtime while changing the packing or spare parts is the least when compared to any other product available in the market today.
