Corresponds to the highest hygiene requirements
Only high-quality materials are used for the GEA Hilge HYGIA, which have been carefully selected for use in hygienic processes and meet the highest hygiene standards worldwide. The housings, for example, are made of deep-drawn CrNiMo rolled steel and have a smooth, pore- and blowhole-free surface (Hygienic Design). This ensures optimum cleanability and high process reliability for a wide variety of applications in the beverage, food, dairy and pharmaceutical industries.
Flexible and individually optimized pump series
The GEA Hilge HYGIA also offers a high degree of flexibility.
Thanks to its great variability in connections and mountings, the HYGIA can be ideally adapted to individual customer requirements. Thanks to the extensive range of mechanical seals, an optimum sealing solution is available for every pumped medium.
The stepless alignment of the discharge port and different housing variants for up to 25 bar system pressure make the pump a flexible component in any system.
The various impeller sizes and geometries make the pumps highly efficient. Additional flexibility can be achieved by operation on an integrated frequency converter.
Certified pump design
The CIP and SIP capable HYGIA pumps facilitate the qualification of the pump in the plant through extensive customer and requirement specific documentation and certificates like EHEDG, 3-A, FDA. Thanks to the mechanical seal optimally positioned in the pump, a flushed design can often be avoided. In addition, the pump in completely self-draining if installed vertically, even without a drain valve.
Suitable also for ATEX areas
For pumps that are used in potentially explosive areas, the HYGIA is available in the Adapta variant. This design, which has an EC declaration of conformity in accordance with the ATEX guideline 2014/34/EU, can be used in device categories 2 and 3.
Service-friendly concept due to quick and easy replacement of wearing parts
The quick-opening pump housing of the HYGIA series allows easy access to wearing parts. One sealing concept for the entire centrifugal pump portfolio minimizes the stocking of wear parts logistics, which is a clear advantage in terms of cost and availability for customers.
The patented Adapta design allows quick and easy motor replacement, where the pump can remain in the pipeline. Thus, revalidation of the system after an engine change is not necessary for pharmaceutical applications.
