LobePro Rotary Pumps are ideal for agricultural, chemical, industrial, oil and gas and municipal applications. LobePro Inc. manufactures 3 lines of positive displacement, rotary lobe pumps: S-Series: Sludge, Mud, and Slurries and General Use applications; C-Series: Corrosives & Chemicals; and D-Series: Duplex Pumps for Abrasives & Corrosives. Each line is also available in an API-Series: API 676 Compliant version. Our rotary lobe pumps are typically used to pump sludge to and from thickeners, separators (such as belt presses, centrifuges, and rotary presses), digesters, clarifiers. They are in fact suitable for pumping any wastewater sludge which has had the hard solids over 1/8” and most grit removed for flows up to 2000 GPM and pressures up to 150 PSI. We can specify an in-line grinder, filter or knock-out tank should hard solids larger than 1/8" be present.

About Us

From 1999 to 2005 LobePro’s key managers operated a fleet of rental pumps that included 250 rotary lobe pumps built by a German manufacturer. During this time, we put over 1.5 million hours on these rotary lobe pumps. Through careful tracking of failures, repairs and maintenance, these key managers realized that many improvements were required and that these improvements could be made without changing the basic design of the pumps.

In 2006 a new company, which is now LobePro, was formed to manufacture this significantly improved pump. We began by building large frame rotary lobe pumps (SL266 and SL531d) specifically designed for pumping sludge or slurries. Our Large Frame line now includes the following pump sizes: SL133, SL133d, SL266, SL266d, SL399, SL399d and SL531d.

In 2007, LobePro hired two regional managers to create and manage an expanding dealer network. LobePro expanded our product offering again to include our Medium Frame (M-Frame) line for sludge or slurries. This pumps include: SM34, SM50, SM68, and SM100.

In 2009, LobePro opened a sales office in China, which is managed by our Mechanical Engineer William Tan. LobePro also received our ISO 9001:2008 certification in 2009. In 2010, LobePro Engineer Nico Ramos started working towards CE and Atex certifications for the European market. We started expanding the product line into API 676 Compliant pumps.

2011 was a productive year for LobePro. We received CE and Atex certifications. We also created the API-Series for API 676 Compliant pumps in the Oil and Gas Industry and introduced a new frame size of pumps, the S-Frame or small frame. The frame line includes two sizes, SS8 and SS16.

In 2012, we hired a full-time Quality Assurance Manager to continue increasing our pump quality.

In 2013, we continued creating improvements to our pump line including the creation of a rebuildable cartridge seal, new steel core lobes and design changes to the pump themselves.

As of today, we manufacture 13 models available in three series: S-Series: Sludge, Mud, and Slurries and General Use applications; C-Series: Corrosives & Chemicals; and D-Series: Duplex Pumps for Abrasives & Corrosives. Each line is also available in an API 676 Compliant version.

All are built and assembled in the USA. We guarantee shipment of wear parts within 2 working days of receiving an order or the parts are free. This applies for the first 5 years after a LobePro pump is purchased.

FEATURED PRODUCTS

Construction Dewatering

Rotary Lobe Pumps are ideal for wellpointing and sock. Wellpointing and sock require that the pump be able to selfprime, often to 20 ft; be able to pump both air and water without cavitation damage; and be able to overcome air leaks because of a high air handling capability and still continue to prime. Rotary lobe pumps are now the dominate pump used for wellpointing and sock in the USA. Our sister company

Sludge/Slurry Engineering

Ketchup can be very aggravating. At first it will not come out of the bottle at all, despite all efforts, then it suddenly comes out in rush and floods your hamburger. The reason is that ketchup becomes more viscous (think thicker) when sitting. When we shake and strike the bottle, this shears (think stirs) the ketchup and it becomes less viscous and then will suddenly pour. Many Sludges/Slurries are like ketchup. If they sit for a while they become ...
