Sustainable and Economical Application under Hygienic Conditions - The energy-efficient and hygienic GEA Hilge TP centrifugal pumps in the GEA Smartpump line are available in a variety of model sizes, optimally configured for different applications.

The centrifugal pump GEA Hilge TP is designed for the hygienic pumping of biologically demanding media. Low flow velocities and gentle discharge of media through the spiral housing enables extremely gentle product handling. 11 different pump types are available covering a capacity range up to 210 m³/h and flow heads up to approx. 90 m w.c., fine tuned for each task.

The spiral housing for the GEA Hilge TP series is made of cold-rolled steel. This material has an excellent surface quality, which is essential for optimum cleaning in CIP/SIP processes. The GEA Hilge TP pump series is EHEDG certified. Typical wall thicknesses of 8 mm (TP 1020 6 mm) provide high strength.

Sealing of GEA Hilge TP centrifugal pumps according to EHEDG standards

The elastomer sealing is executed according to EHEDG standards. The special groove enables the seal is kept reliably in place at all times. The shape of the groove is based on FEM analyses. The metallic stop allows a defined compression of the seal, ensuring gap-free sealing against the product chamber without dead corners.
