Gentle, smooth pumping action, without pulsing, that protects fluids & solids
RELIABLE & DURABLE
Extremely wear-resistant and the screws are never in contact with each other
Capable of handling a wide range of speeds, viscosities & pressures – infinite pump applications
2 DUTIES FROM 1 PUMP
Twin Screw pumps can perform BOTH your process duty AND your Clean-In-Place (CIP) duties
How do twin screw pumps work?
When the non-contacting twin screws rotate within the pump head, fluid is pumped in an axial or ‘straight-line’ movement, being carried along within the gaps or chambers within the screws. This axial movement results in a low-turbulence, low-shear pumping action and the fluid discharge is constant and pulsation-free (laminar flow).
In other rotary pumps, the fluid is transported circumferentially around the pump body via rotating impellers, lobes or rotors but inside a twin screw pump, the fluid is pumped axially, straight along the length of the twin screws.
This makes the twin screw pump ideal for transferring slurries, soft solids, shear-sensitive fluids and/or liquids that could be altered or damaged by vigorous handling.

TWIN SCREW PUMP QTS
PUMPS FOR INFINITE APPLICATIONS
Low-shear process pumping PLUS CIP from a single pump
The QTS pump range from Q-Pumps is the standard pump model. This tried-and-tested pump range is constructed from high quality stainless-steel and meets global hygienic design and cleanliness standards including EHEDG & 3-A.
This range is capable of pumping virtually any fluid or slurry. Whatever fluid you are transferring, be it, low viscosity ‘watery’ fluids, high viscosity fluids, fluids with lumps, fibrous fluids or fluids with entrained gas – the QTS pumps are suitable for transferring fluids of all consistencies.
The QTS range is available in six models QTS-25, QTS-100, QTS-200, QTS-300, QTS-350 & QTS-400. The maximum flow rate is approximately 3.2 m³ per minute (CIP), the delivery pressure can be up to 25 bar and viscosity up to 1,000,000 centiPoise (cPs).
