Pump & clean with one pump only


The GEA Hilge NOVATWIN twin screw pump range allows production and CIP operation with one pump. It fulfills the highest hygienic requirements and ensures reliable production based on a proven twin screw pump design.

GEA Hilge NOVATWIN+ is the new flexible twin screw pump series in the GEA VARIPUMP line.

The best pump for your application

The GEA Hilge NOVATWIN range allows production and cleaning with only one pump by variable speeds up to 3000 rpm. Its self-priming capability of up to 8 meters opens new application fields.

The 3-A certified pump design ensures gentle product handling with almost no pulsation, which makes the pump especially suitable for large and delicate particles.

The system pressure of 30 bar enables also high-pressure applications.

Variable combinations

The pump housing can be equipped with various hardened screw combinations. Reverse flow direction as well as flexible port positions are possible on individual customer demand. This allows the NOVATWIN range to adapt to different applications, media and operating conditions.

Shaft Seals

To accommodate different applications and media, GEA Hilge NOVATWIN are available with single or double mechanical seals. 

The mechanical seals are inboard seals placed in the optimum position in the pump to ensure outstanding lubrication and cooling. They also comply with the hygienic design criteria in CIP and SIP processes.

Seal face materials are carefully selected to suit the specific media. Standard materials are silicon carbide /silicon carbide with EPDM elastomers (FDA-compliant).
