A TORNADO® rotary lobe pump fastened onto a mobile base – this is the NETZSCH TORNADO® Mobile. The concept of mounting the equipment onto a car or truck trailer makes it possible to pump large quantities of fluids with solid content, wastewater and slurries at the most unusual of sites. Based on the given application, a TORNADO® rotary lobe pump is selected in the appropriate size and then simply installed onto a trailer. High capacity and low space requirements make the TORNADO® Mobile ideal for use in any disaster situation.

Overrun brake with auto-reverse, fitted with with DIN towing eye for truck hitching; tarp and bows. Total weight 3400 kg.
1 Front Cover
Rotors, cover seal and product seals can be accessed for inspection, service or replacement by simply removing the front cover. Disassembly of the inlet and outlet pipework and pump housing is not necessary.
2 Wear Plates
Abrasion and chemically resistant, replaceable wear plates are fitted both sides of the rotors.
Straight sided or helical rotors are selected to suit individual application requirements. Rotors are available as bi-lobe, tri-lobe or four-lobe and a wide range of materials is available. The rotor geometry and material are selected for the characteristics of the pumped media. Geometries are available for products which are viscous, abrasive or contain solids. Materials tailored to the media characteristics increase the durability of the rotors and extend service life.
4 Housing Crescents
Modular construction allows for the crescents to be simply replaced should wear occur. Pump life time can be further extended with the option of replaceable crescent liners.
Wide range of product seals and materials are available, which are selected to suit individual application requirements. Seal arrangements include easy access connections for seal quench or flush.
The patented gearbox design includes NETZSCH GSS-Technology separating the pump head from the gear box which eliminates cross contamination between the pump media and gear box lubricant.
