When it comes to mobile pumps, if the mobile unit is to be operated self-sufficiently and independently, we recommend a drive with combustion motors. Where the relevant vehicles are available however, a mechanical drive using a cardan shaft is a low-cost option.
Yet if the mobile pump only needs to be moved within a small area, assembly on a hand trolley or simple trailer will suffice. And for rare usage locations that are far away, assembly on a rigid frame is a good variation, as this way the mobile unit can be loaded via forklift truck or crane. Maximum mobility is offered by assembly on a vehicle trailer, which enables relatively fast and simple transport of the unit.
Vogelsang VX series and IQ series rotary lobe pumps are ideal for mobile use due to their wide range of features such as they are self-priming and resistant to dry running, have a large free passage, and can also pump highly abrasive media or media with high dry matter content. If a variable delivery rate is required, the pump is operated using a variable frequency drive. Alternatively, a drive using a combustion motor is also possible. The Vogelsang rotary lobe pump is also ideal where long distances need to be covered.
