Fristam: Efficient pumping for media containing gas

FRISTAM_FPCAt this year’s Anuga FoodTec in Cologne, Fristam Pumpen will be presenting its newly developed FPC pump series, which is particularly suitable for transporting media with a high gas content, for handling intermittent product inflow and for CIP-return applications. The new hybrid pump scores with a high degree of efficiency, low sound emission and low energy consumption.

Pumping tasks for transporting liquids containing gas are standard applications in the food and beverage industry. But in such cases it is often not possible to ensure continuous inflow to the pump. With the newly developed FPC hybrid pump, Fristam now offers a series of pumps whose strengths provide the perfect solution for such applications. These pumps are ideal for CIP-return processes and are capable of evacuating pipelines on the suction side and emptying tanks and vessels.

The design of the FPC is based on the non-self-priming FP centrifugal pump series, which has been proven countless times. On the suction side, this pump combines its open impeller with an upstream rotor screw. The combination of the eccentrically mounted rotor housing and recirculating pipe, allows this hybrid pump to provide trouble-free conveyance of liquids containing gas.

Precise matching of the operating point in cases of intermittent flow is achieved by adjustment of either the impeller or the motor speed. Fristam manufactures all of its pumps from sold, premium-quality forged or cast stainless steel. Depending on specifications, the pump is equipped with a single or double mechanical seal, or a mechanical seal with flush, in whichever material combination suits the application. The materials used to make the seals are FDA-compliant.

The maximum flow rate of the FPC pumps is about 80 m³/h, their maximum discharge pressure approximately 6 bar.
