Saniflo vacuum-controlled VC Series metal pumps have been designed to handle large solids in food processing applications. Offered in three sizes, the pumps can move solids ranging from 3 to 6 in. at more than 8,000 lbs/hr. They do not employ an air motor, using instead a vacuum generator that draws the product into the wetted housing. Filtered compressed air is then used to push the product out of the housing and downstream of the pump.
