Food Pumps

Food  Pumps  are mechanical devices, and are widely used within the food and beverage industry. There is a wide range of food  pumps  available to the catering industry, and these can include, centrifugal, diaphragm , air driven, and rotary lobe food  pumps . These  pumps  are all manufactured with the highest quality materials, to ensure safe, and hygienic food processing. Rotary lobe food  pumps  are very commonly used within the food processing industry, because they offer good sanitary, high efficiency, and excellent clean and steam in place characteristics. Food  pumps  such as the rotary lobe  pumps , are often used in food processing applications, and they can process solid foodstuffs, without damaging the product.

A very popular type of food  pump  is the air operated double diaphragm  pump . The air operated double diaphragm  pump  provides an alternative to centrifugal, and positive displacement  pumps  and are ideal for applications where it is impossible or dangerous to use electricity. These types of  pumps  are self priming, can run dry with no damage, and do not require electricity to power them. They are powered totally by compressed air and can be used in a number of applications where electricity is not available or must not be used.

Rotary lobe  pumps  are used widely in the chemical food, pulp and paper, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. These types of  pumps  are popular in these industries because they offer reliability, high efficiency, sanitary qualities and good clean and steam in place characteristics. Rotary lobe  pumps  can quite easily manage a variety of liquids and solids. They work in a similar fashion to external gear  pumps , in that fluid flows around the interior of the casing, but unlike external gear  pumps , the lobes do not make contact. Rotary lobe  pumps  are commonly used in food applications, as they can handle solids without damaging the product. The flow in rotary lobe  pumps  is relatively independent, so output is constant and continuous.

Industrial food  pumps  vary in design and some of the different types can include :

o Positive Displacement

o Self Priming Centrifugal

o End Suction Centrifugal

o Thermoplastic/Chemical

o Hygenic and Multi-usage  pumps 

o Domestic  pumps 

Many of these  pumps  may have a range of applications and these may include :

o Food and Beverage

o Pharmaceutical & Chemical

o Biotechnology & Personal Care

o Paper & Textile

These types of  pumps  play a large part in the processing of many different food-stuffs and materials, and are widely employed in all kinds of industries for various applications.
