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 all-round pump with high efficiency
Applications for VY rotary lobe pumps
The VY rotary lobe pumps are based on Vogelsang’s proven VX series. Different seals can also be variably used in the new housing – depending on industry-specific standards and requirements. This makes the VY series an all-rounder for use in, for example, the chemical industry as well as in the paper and textile sectors. The performance spectrum of the VY pumps ranges from 1 m³/h to 120 m³/h at a maximum pressure of 10 bar. Integrated sensors provide all the important information about the pump’s operating status. For media with abrasive components, the VY series is available with axial and radial wear protection.

Control technology for Vogelsang technology
Investing in our progressive and smart control technology significantly boosts the performance and efficiency of Vogelsang machines and systems. It captures and continuously monitors key parameters like the capacity or throughput rate, rpm, pressure and power consumption. The control detects malfunctions early, and rectifies them by intervening appropriately. The integrated communication interfaces like ProfiNet and OPC UA can exchange data with other systems or a superordinate control in real time.
At the same time, the web-based user interface displays all key data clearly in all major browsers. Optionally, the data can be accessed on mobile devices for remote monitoring.
Our experts’ experience from hundreds of applications in various areas constantly inspires our software development and lays the foundation for the major benefits for the users: low operating costs, maximum availability and efficiency.
Our range of controls offers the right solution for all machine requirements and all customers’ needs. From ready-to-use, factory-tested and commissioned system solutions for end users, to basic versions for experts who want to put the finishing touches to the control technology themselves.
