What is a sine pump?

Sinus pumps are characterized by their ability to deliver liquids gently and precisely.

Sinusoidal pumps industrial power plant

sine pumps are pump systems that are used in various industries. They are particularly in the chemistry- and food industry popular. These pumps are characterized by their ability to liquids to convey gently and precisely.

The name “sine pump” is derived from the sinusoidal movement produced by these pumps. As a result of this movement, the liquid is continuously pumped without it becoming too heavy printing- or speed changes occur. This is particularly important for sensitive liquids or liquids with high viscosity to promote.

How does a sine pump work?

The sine pump is based on the SINUS principle and functions as a positive displacement pump. Its central element is a disk in the shape of a sine wave, which is mounted as a rotor on a drive shaft. This disc moves the product to be conveyed smoothly and evenly through four chambers, which are evenly divided.

A sealing valve, also as Scraper , performs the task of separating the suction and pressure sides of the pump. This enables pressure equalization and thus prevents backflow.

In contrast to the pumupsystems wobbling ring pump, however, the medium remains in the sine pump twice as long. Within the wobble ring pump, the medium is transported in a cycle, whereas with the sine pump, this process takes place in two cycles.

About our industrial pump


Sine pumps are available in various sizes and materials to meet the needs of each application. They can be made of stainless steel, plastic, or other corrosion-resistant materials to last a long lifetime and to ensure reliability.

What makes sine pumps different from other industrial pumps?

Sinus pumps are different from others industrial pumps due to their unique way of working. In contrast to traditional positive displacement pumps, which are based on the piston or vane pump principle, sine pumps operate with a special sine rotor. This rotor consists of a cylindrical housing with a rotating shaft located therein.

Another difference is in the energy efficiency from sine pumps. Because of their special construction and the use of high-quality materials, sine pumps can achieve higher efficiency than conventional pumps. This leads to a reduction in energy consumption and thus to cost savings for the operator.

In addition, sine pumps are characterized by their high reliability and long service life. By using robust materials and precise manufacturing, sine pumps are able to work reliably under extreme operating conditions. This makes it an ideal solution for demanding industrial applications.

Sine pumps also offer a high degree of flexibility in terms of conveying capacity and the pressure. By adjusting the rotor speed and pump pressure, sine pumps can be adapted to various requirements and processes. This enables precise dosing and pumping of liquids in various industrial sectors.

Another advantage of sine pumps is their simple servicing. Due to its modular design, individual components can be easily replaced without having to remove the entire pump. This saves time and money during maintenance and repair work.

In the groceries- and beverage industry, sine pumps are frequently used as they hygienic requirements fulfill. Thanks to their smooth surfaces and simple cleaning process, sine pumps can be easily integrated into production lines where a high level of cleanliness is required.

What are positive displacement pumps and how do they work?

positive displacement pumps, are a type of pumps that are widely used in various industries. They are mainly used to treat liquids or gasses to convey and transport.

These pumps operate on the principle of volume displacement. This means that they deliver liquids or gases by reducing or increasing the volume in a specific space. This is done by using pistons, gears, or other moving parts.

In a positive displacement pump, the liquid or gas is sucked into the pump head and then compressed and delivered by moving the pistons or gears. With every movement, this becomes volume the pump head changes, causing the liquid or gas to move forward.

There are various types of positive displacement pumps, including piston pumps, gear pumps, diaphragm pumps and screw pumps. Each type has its own specific features and applications.

Auch pumpsystems wobble ring pump belongs to the positive displacement pumps. This type of pump is based on the principle of a wobble ring, which moves eccentrically in a cylinder. This movement causes a change between suction and pressure sides, which means that the liquid or gas is pumped.

Positive displacement pumps have the advantage that they can generate a constant flow rate and high pressure. They are therefore particularly suitable for applications in which an exact dosage of flow rate or high pressure is required.

In addition, positive displacement pumps are capable of handling viscous liquids or media with solid particles to promote, which makes them indispensable in many industries. They are used, for example, in the chemical industry, the food industry, the oil and gas industry and in many other areas.

Positive displacement pumps are used in many areas, such as the chemical industry, the food industry, the oil and gas industry and the pharmaceutical industry. They are known for their reliability, efficiency, and precision.

How does the cleaning and maintenance process of sine pumps work?

The cleaning and maintenance process of sine pumps is an important step in ensuring that they operate efficiently and reliably. Here is a guide on how to do this process:

1. preparation: Make sure you have the right tools and cleaning supplies to properly complete the cleaning and maintenance process. This may include: a cleaning brush, detergent, lubricant, and a towel.

2nd Switch off: Switch off and unplug the sine pump from the power source before you start cleaning. This is important to prevent injuries and ensure safety.

3rd scouring: Remove the sine pump cover and remove any visible debris or contamination. Use the cleaning brush and detergent to thoroughly clean all parts. Pay particular attention to the rotor blades and the pump mechanism, as deposits often form there. Sine pumps are SIP and CIP compatible. SIP stands for “sterilization in place” and means that the sine pump is cleaned directly in the process without having to disassemble it. CIP stands for “cleaning in place” and refers to cleaning the pump while it stays in place.

To the sine pump To clean in the SIP process, make sure that all pipes and connections are connected correctly. Then fill the cleaning agent into the pump tank and set the desired temperature and cleaning time. Start the cleaning cycle and let the detergent circulate through the pump and pipes. This helps to loosen and remove all debris and contaminants.

For CIP cleaning, you must use the industrial pump possibly disassemble to thoroughly clean all parts. Use the detergent and cleaning brush to clean all components. Pay particular attention to the rotor blades and the pump mechanism, as deposits often form there. Make sure all parts are thoroughly rinsed and dried before reassembling the pump.

4th lubrication: Apply an appropriate amount of lubricant to moving parts of the sine pump to ensure smooth & efficient operation. Be sure to evenly distribute the lubricant and remove excess.

5th assembling: Put all cleaned and lubricated parts back together and make sure they are properly fastened. Check that all connections are secure and that there are no leaks.

6th testing: Reconnect the sine pump to the power source and turn it on. Verify that it is working properly and has no unusual sound or behavior. Make sure that all sine pump functions properly.

The industrial pump manufacturer Watson Marlow also offers a sinusoidal pump. The wobble ring pump and the Masosine sinusoidal pump are not only similar in their sinusoidal movement, but also in the gentle pumping of shear-sensitive media. However, due to the special design of the wobble ring pump and the installation of the wobble ring, this pump is unrivalled in terms of efficiency, quality and reliability.

It is also possible to flexibly adjust the wobble ring pump rent.
