Farmer pump for liquid manure
- No additional lubrication required due to integrated circulating oil lubrication
- Industrial-standard block ring seal for long lifetime
- Self-priming and resistant to foreign bodies
- Quiet running thanks to well-conceived positioning of the lobes
- Low energy consumption thanks to rotating separation plate
The rotary lobe pump principle
How Vogelsang rotary lobe pumps work
The rotary lobe pump is a positive displacement pump. The pumping principle is based on two counter-rotating pumping elements, known as the rotary lobes. These are mounted on two synchronized shafts. The rotational movement of the lobes increases the volume of the pumping chamber on the suction side. This creates suction, which draws the medium into the rotary lobe pump. As the rotational movement continues, the medium is then enclosed in cavities between the rotary lobes and pump housing and it is issued on the discharge side by the pumping chambers as they reduce in size again; the rotary lobe pump conveys the medium directly. Due to their mirror-symmetrical design, rotary lobe pumps are independent of the direction of rotation and can pump in either direction without restriction. The HiFlo lobes developed in the 1990s operate pulsation-free, ensuring low-vibration and exceptionally gentle pumping.
The flexible farmer pump for everyday farm work
Rotary lobe pumps of the FX series for agricultural applications
The FX series, or FarmerPump, is Vogelsang's liquid manure pump. It was custom-developed for agricultural use, and makes pumping easier at a reasonable cost. The upgraded product from the proven R series has an industrial-standard block ring seal, a rotating separation plate and a circulating oil lubrication system integrated as standard. That makes the FarmerPump ideal for everyday routine work on the farm. The FarmerPump is also flexible in application: It can be operated anywhere via a power take-off, for example as a permanent installation, or as a mobile unit with the three-point base. The rotating separation plate between the lobes prevents the accumulation of fibrous matter in the liquid manure. This maintains the full pump performance and minimizes diesel or electricity consumption. This rotary lobe pump is a professional liquid manure pump with no torque increase. Its performance range was specially designed for agricultural use, with six expansion stages up to max. 8 bar and max. 4,500 l/min.
