Case Study: Fast Replacement Of Flooded Hygienic Lobe Pump

October 26, 2023


A customer’s SPX hygienic lobe pump was submerged in flood, causing downtime indefinitely. The customer applied for an insurance claim for a replacement pump, but their policy had a low per-occurrence limit and was not enough to purchase a brand-new SPX pump. With their budget, All-Pumps recommended an equally efficient but more affordable pump as a replacement – an INOXPA lobe pump.

The Problem

A customer required a replacement pump quickly as the SPX pump they were using was submerged in a recent flood. They placed an order under their insurance with limited per-occurrence value, thus leaving them unable to buy a new SPX pump. Alternatively, they searched for different brands but would not match the footprint of their old lobe pump.

The Solution

All-Pumps recommended an INOXPA hygienic lobe pump mounted on a custom-built base plate to fit their old pump’s footprint easily. We also provided the gearbox and motor for a complete pump-motor assembly.
