The Seepex T-series of open-hopper pumps is designed for viscous products that do not flow easily due to their thick consistency and high content of solids. In these cases, the open hopper and auger screw guide the entry of the product into the pump (or pumping section).
The open hopper varies in size to accommodate all kinds of media and can be augmented with a single or double paddle shaft to prevent the bridging of the product across the auger. The pitch and the diameter of the auger feed screw are also variable according to application. Pumps in the BTH range have a separately-driven (and reversible) ribbon auger, and pumps in the BTM range are equipped with cutting knives. All the pumps have easy-to-change rotors and stators, and some include inspection ports.
