The HiCone progressive cavity pump, the first pump in its category to enable precise adjustments, is set for mass release in North America. This patented technology was designed to maintain consistent conveying capacity and pressure resistance while being energy efficient. Available from Vogelsang USA (Ravenna, OH), the HiCone pump is suitable for applications in environmental wastewater applications, as well as most industrial settings.
This is made possible by the conical rotor-stator geometry. If a gap occurs between the rotor and stator as a result of wear, it can be compensated for during ongoing operation. The rotor is adjusted axially. The size of the conveying chambers, the conveying capacity, and the efficiency remain the same at the time of installation, ensuring constant conveying capacity with high efficiency. Instead of costly, time-consuming parts replacement, the HiCone can be simply and quickly re-adjusted, increasing its service life many times beyond conventional technology.
The smart adjustment system allows the HiCone to be individually adapted to the respective operating parameters, such as pressure and temperature, by optimally positioning the rotor and stator in relation to each other.
At the push of a button or the click of a mouse, the compression between the rotor and stator can be regulated from the control room throughout the entire service life during operation and monitored for wear. This innovation ultimately makes it possible to predict and plan well in advance for the replacement of the rotor-stator package.
