Proven KRAL pump quality suitable even for aggressive and contaminated media.
In the new Z series, KRAL applies its expertise in pump design and technology to two screw pumps. As a result, the KRAL Z series is capable of delivering aggressive, low- or non-lubricating, and contaminated media with the reliabiltity and quality that KRAL products are valued for by customers worldwide.

How it works.
The KRAL Z series pumps are positive displacement pumps that draw the liquid through the suction connection and continually feed it in two partial streams to the two screws. As a result, the pump is pressure-equalized axially. The pressure builds up linearly along the length of the screw. The housing design ensures that the gap between the screws and the housing remains sealed. This ensures that the pump can be primed very effectively, even when the suction line is empty.
The KRAL Z series can be implemented as a customized solution for any required application. For example, depending on the application, the screws can be designed solid or engineered. This results in substantial benefits for important aspects such as fatigue strength, media resistance, maintenance costs, and costs over the life-cycle of the pump.
Maximum flexibility by unlimited options for connection arrangements.
Pumps are often built into existing systems, where predetermined installation conditions can easily become a problem. The KRAL Z series offers the solution with a unique innovation for screw pumps. The connections can be flexibly arranged both horizontally and vertically. The installation options are therefore unlimited.
Both installation variations are designed with external bearings so that the bearings don’t come into contact with the liquid. This significantly increases their lifetime. The mechanical seals are located on the suction side of the pump flow and are cooled and lubricated by the pumped liquid. Both single- and double-acting mechanical seals can be used in combination with an extremely broad range of seal supply systems. Different materials can be used in the design, depending on the pumped liquid.

- Models.Horizontal installation.Examples of connection arrangements for horizontal installation.
Horizontal installation makes the pump very easy to service without separating the pump from the pipe system. This installation has a positive effect on thermal performance.
All the connections can be arranged horizontally (inline) and at several angles.
The diagrams only show a few examples of connection arrangements. The design possibilities are extremely variable. All the connections can be arranged horizontally (inline) and at several angles.Vertical installation.Examples of connection arrangements for vertical installation.
The benefit of this design is its very compact layout, which makes it ideal for systems with limited space. It is installed via a pedestal, and the motor is mounted over the pump with a motor support.
All the connections can be arranged vertically (inline) and at several angles.
