KSB at Anuga FoodTec 2018 in Cologne

Wednesday, January 24th, 2018 von admin

In the limelight at the KSB Anuga FoodTec trade fair stand is, among others, the newly developed concept of a maintenance workstation for hygienic food pumps only. The so-called LSA (Life Sciences Applications) hygiene workstation is equipped with stainless steel surfaces, work benches that are easy to clean, and tools and clothing for use in this workstation only. Also, all lubricants supplied are FDA-approved. At the KSB stand in Cologne, such a workstation will be demonstrated by a service engineer performing maintenance work on a hygienic pump live at regular intervals.

Flotronic: The One-Nut Design for hygienic AODD

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017 von admin

UK specialist pump manufacturer Flotronic Pumps Limited was founded by Lew Norris in 1981. The engineering design consultancy ‘Norris Brothers’ had been involved in the design of  specialist pumps since 1952.  Lew Norris’ new company pioneered the air-operated, double-diaphragm ‘One-Nut’ pump. Flotronic’s ‘One-Nut’ design allows quick pump disassembly for inspection, cleaning and maintenance – delivering a massive benefit for pump users in terms of reduced down-time, particularly as the pump can be inspected or maintained in line without disconnection of pipework. Flotronic remains the only British-owned specialist manufacturer of air-operated, double-diaphragm pumps in the UK.

quattrotecThe target application for this positive displacement quaternary diaphragm pump series is the continuous dosing of high-value additives in the food and beverage and personal care industries (e.g. to add concentrates to a fluid stream for soft drinks) as well as for in-line dilution. These ‘QuattroTec’ called pumps can provide a consistent flow that results in a constant and continuous dosing of ingredients in hygienic processes.


Alfa Laval: New hygienic self-priming pump with improved energy efficiency

Friday, November 13th, 2015 von admin

Alfa_Laval_LKH_Prime_Pump_Press_releaseThe superior efficiency of the LKH Prime results in reduced energy consumption. This delivers low cost of owner-ship. Designed for CIP duties containing entrained air, it can also pump product, potentially reducing the capital investment when designing process systems.

Quiet in operation, the LKH Prime is engineered to meet the most stringent standards and hygienic requirements of the food, dairy, beverage, and home & personal care industries. The pump is also going to be available as an UltraPure model, meeting the needs of pharmaceutical customers.


Flotronic: New ‘E’ Series’ achieves EHEDG seal of approval

Monday, September 14th, 2015 von admin

EHEDG Series pump cutoutFlotronic Pumps Limited, the UK-based specialist manufacturer of air-operated double diaphragm pumps, having already secured 3-A Sanitary Standards, Inc (3-A SSI) approval for their ‘H’ series pump, have now achieved the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG) accreditation for their new ‘E’ Series pump.

The ‘E’ Series pump has been specifically designed for the Food and Beverage industry and other processes where product contamination must be avoided. The pump’s features include Flotronic’s established and unique ‘One-Nut’ pump design which allows swift diaphragm access without disconnecting process pipework. The internal surfaces of the ‘E’ Series pump can be effectively ‘cleaned in place’ or, alternatively, easy dismantling can be carried out for cleaning and inspection. Cleaning is aided by the provision of polished wetted surfaces to 0.8μm Ra maximum and an electro-polished overall finish. Cleanability is also assisted by the incorporation of a support stand whereby the pump can be inverted for full draining.


ITT Bornemann: Twin-Screw-Pump receives EHEDG EL Aseptic Certificate

Monday, September 22nd, 2014 von admin

slh_4g_big_cyan_kleinSingle-flow hygienic Twin-Screw-Pumps, type SLH from ITT Bornemann, have been successfully installed in many applications in the food-, beverage and pharmaceutical industry for many years. It is one of the main functions to pump high viscous fluids. Because of the high rotational speed range (up to 3600 rpm) it is also possible for the pump to handle low viscous products with a high flow velocity. So it is possible to use the SLH Twin-Screw-Pumps also for the CIP-Process.

To reach the high criteria of hygienic design ITT Bornemann designs the pump inside and outside in best way without loss of functionality. As a result the pump is EHEDG EL class 1 certified and also 3-A registered. Now the SLH-4G Twin-Screw-Pump reaches the next level: EHEDG EL Aseptic Certificate. The certificate underlines the hygienic design of SLH-4G Twin-Screw-Pump and confirms the possibility to operate in aseptic applications.
