Quattroflow: Hygienic pump for accurate flow and wide flow range

Friday, September 16th, 2016 von admin

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.

Packo: Pumps for inline dispersing, mixing and homogenizing

Thursday, July 14th, 2016 von admin

shear mixing illustratie (2)The shear pumps series SFP2 and SFP3 have an innovative stator (patent pending) providing an efficiency improvement between 70 and 100 % compared to current technologies available. Moreover, one single system is sufficient for the in-line mixing, dispersing and homogenizing, as well as for pumping the final product.

Typical applications are among other things the mixing of two liquids having a large different specific gravity and/or viscosity as well as dispersing of solids in liquids.

Fristam adds double-screw technology to its pump portfolio

Thursday, May 12th, 2016 von admin

FDS_mit_FoerderschraubenThe pump casing of Fristam FDS pumps comes in three parts, consisting of an intermediate flange, the screw casing and the pump cover. This enables individual adaptation of the connections to any conceivable production system requirement. Thanks to central positioning of the gearwheels inside the bearing support area, the entire pump comes in a very compact design. Moreover, its massive shaft has reinforcements in the area of critical diameters to ensure maximum rigidity. Further stability is achieved through a combination of particular large bearings and an increased bearing distance. The result is smooth running with minimal wear.

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.

Flotronic: 3-A accreditation for air-operated double-diaphragm pump

Monday, June 16th, 2014 von admin

Flotronic H Series PumpSpecialist air-operated double-diaphragm pump manufacturer, Flotronic Pumps Limited, have secured 3-A accreditation for their brand new ‘H’ series pump. Among a number of critical design features, the One-Nut design, which allows rapid pump disassembly and straightforward cleaning in place, was crucial to the success of the ‘H’ series’ 3-A application. The ‘H’ series’ electronic rather than pneumatic rupture protection system was also a deciding factor.

KSB: New mag-drive pump for process engineering applications

Monday, May 26th, 2014 von admin

131202_Magnochem_04 (2)KSB launch the latest generation of its Magnochem mag-drive pumps recently.

Available in 52 sizes, the new series is primarily characterised by high outputs per size ensuring extremely low energy consumption. All pump characteristics conform to the ISO 2858/EN 22 858/ISO 5199 standards.  The pumps’ engineers have paid particular attention to the design of the magnetic coupling and the routing of circulation, cooling and lubricating flows. This allows the operator to choose between four operating modes ranging from a simple internal circulation to a so-called dead-end configuration with an auxiliary hydraulic system. As an option, an external heat exchanger can be installed. This means that the pump set can be optimised for the pumping of polymerising, coagulating and crystallising as well as low-boiling fluids.

Almatec: Single-Use Biologic Pumps

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013 von admin

This single-use line of pumps – named Quattroflow – is developed for use in biologic-handling applications within pharmaceutical and biotech operations. The incorporation of single-use pumps in biologic-handling applications is gaining wider acceptance among pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturers because they can help optimize end-product speed-to-market. Single-use, or disposable, pumps feature replaceable wetted pump chamber, which is an advantage for manufacturers looking to maximize their production operations. The single-use pumps reduce downtime between two batches, save time and money, and are quick and easy to change.
