Designed for continuous operation on thin liquids with a viscosity up to 500 mPa s, the new generation pumps are suitable for process and CIP/SIP applications. They offer a very gentle and steady product treatment, which makes them an ideal solution also for sensitive product applications like milk and cream products or yeast. The pumps can handle flow rates up to 160 m³/h and pump heads up to 75 mWc.

At this year’s BrauBeviale trade fair KSB is going to showcase the youngest generation of its hygienic Vitachrom single-stage close-coupled pump. It now features both the standard connection and, as an option, an 8-mm flexible tube connection for liquid supply to the mechanical seal. With its electropolished stainless steel surfaces and almost complete lack of dead volume the pump is very easy to clean by CIP/SIP. The type series is EHEDG-certified and all materials used comply with FDA and EN 1935/2004 standards. An Atex-compliant version is available.
Special eye-catcher at the KSB stand from 11 to 13 November 2014 will be the Salino Pressure Center, a system designed for economical water treatment based on membrane technology. The Frankenthal-based pump manufacturer will showcase this product at the Nuremberg trade fair at the request of engineering contractors operating at a global level since many non-European breweries must treat their process water themselves. The Salino Pressure Center consists of an axial piston pump and an axial piston motor, arranged on a common shaft. Driven by the return flow from the membrane, the axial piston motor transfers its power directly to the pump shaft. As pipes are not required between the individual components, the system takes up minimal space and is highly energy-efficient.
GEA Process Engineering UK, based in Warrington, has restructured its components department to bring together technology-leading brands,
- GEA Pumps,
- GEA Tuchenhagen,
- GEA Aseptomag and
- GEA Breconcherry
to strengthen the company’s service offering and provide a single source for hygienic and aseptic components for customers throughout the UK’s processing industries.
Although breweries are predominantly utilizing centrifugal pumps there are a couple of critical steps during the brewing process which require the use of hygienic displacement pumps. This means essentially the transport of yeast. For this challenging transport tasks, for instance for the yeast dosification or also for the yeast recuperation, Jung Process Systems offers Hyghspin twin screw pumps in different sizes.
