When it comes to cleaning food production equipment, it wasn’t that long ago the only option was taking the equipment apart piece by piece, scrubbing and flushing it with chemicals and water inside and out before putting it back together again for the next run.
The NETZSCH NEMO progressing cavity pump is based on a multi-spiraled rotor running inside a matching negatively spiraled stator housing; the tight tolerances of the geometry of the 2 components creates conveying chambers of the same size on the suction side with each rotation, moving a sensitive medium to the discharge side in fixed volumes.
Extending the wear resistance of stainless steel (SS) components used in food manufacturing equipment operating on production lines lengthens replacement intervals and minimizes potential component failure, resulting in decreased downtime and improved cost savings—a long, sought-after goal of any maintenance department.
The VACON 100 FLOW AC drive controls the flow and pressure of a maximum of 8 pumps (or fans) without an external controller; it is equipped with built-in Ethernet for commissioning and maintenance, as well as local or remote monitoring.
Authorized to display the 3A Sanitary Standards Symbol for Centrifugal and Positive Rotary Pumps (3-A Sanitary Standard #02-09), Viking Hygienic Series internal gear pumps are intended for dairy, eggs, meat, processed foods, chocolate, confectionery, oils and sweeteners.
Used for pumping liquids with very high viscosity, including those containing suspended solids, Clark CU15 Series miniature air-operated diaphragm pumps are suitable for applications with high humidity or potentially explosive atmospheres.
Engineered for sweetener transfer applications in the ice cream industry, Maag EnviroGear seal-less internal gear pumps handle viscous liquids such as corn syrup and less-viscous media including fructose, sucrose and sorbitol.
