Lamella Pump

The JS Lamella pump from JS Poputec is used for transporting solid materials such as pre-broken bone and offal at abattoirs and other meat processing plants.

The bone and offal pump is used instead of more conventional methods such as screw conveyors, compressed air “blow-tank” systems and manual systems (bins and fork lifts). Advantages include:

The JS Lamella system can deliver product effectively, cleanly, and minimise costs.

Enclosed Pipeline

Because the JS Lamella pump uses an enclosed pipeline system, the product is much less likely to be contaminated by insects, dust or water [rain]. This cannot be guaranteed when using screw conveyers or manual transfer systems like fork lift and bins.



Reduced labour cost

A manual transfer system requires a manned fork lift, which also brings into play wear and tear on the fork lift, increases OH&S risks and increases the chance of equipment damage.

Using a blow tank system requires an operator, and this system also requires the addition of water, which needs to be cooked out of the product, using more fuel than that required for a JS Lamella pump transfer system.

Less maintenance

Maintenance on a screw conveyor can get expensive. Re-welding flights, straightening screws, wear on the flights are all maintenance issues for screw conveyors transporting tough materials like cattle bones. Also, when distances become too long, a screw conveyor becomes less economical and more problematic.

If the right choice is a pump, to keep product in an enclosed pipe system and/or transport longer distances, then a JS Lamella should be the choice. Advantages of a JS Lamella over “comparable” pumps are as follows:

  • All wearing parts are replaceable on JS Lamella pumps.
  • Top and Bottom plates wear much slower than cam discs, so they only need replacing every 4-5 times the Cam discs are replaced. In “similar” pumps, the top and bottom plates are part of the cam disc arrangement, meaning repairs are more expensive than with JS Lamella pumps.
  • Wearing bars are bolted to the rotor so that no material can lodge between the rotor and the wearing bars. If they are not bolted (like on competitor pumps), pumped material can squeeze between wear bar and rotor, pushing the wear bar onto the lamella’s. This causes premature lamella wear and jamming of lamella’s.
  • A standard Lamella pump is designed with Mechanical seals, which take up less space than other seals (like rotoglyde seals and gland packing). Mechanical seals guarantees a 100 % seal. They also protect the bearings better from product ingress.
  • On a JS Lamella pump the shaft end and Rotor are assembled with 8 bolts, which are tightened to a specified torque. On “similar” pumps the rotor and shaft end are bolted but also welded together. By not welding those 2 parts, it is much easier to disassemble the parts for service and increases service life.
  • Key wearing parts like the rotor, lamellas, wearing plates, cam discs, top- and bottom plates and wearing bars, can be supplied in tool steel quality stainless steel, with high strength, wear resistance and excellent corrosion resistance.
  • JS Proputec Lamella pump customers (who have also used “similar” pumps), claim that JS Proputec wear parts are stronger and last longer than the competitor pump/s. The difference is greater when the pumps are used for hard and tough materials (such as cattle bones).
