Wilden at drinktec: Hygienic Pumps & Diaphragms

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017 von admin

Exhibiting in booth B3-218, Wilden will be featuring its Saniflo Hygienic AODD pumps. Designed to meet and exceed the strictest international regulatory guidelines for food-and-beverage applications, these pumps feature product containment and a straight flow-through design that enables clean-in-place capability. These pumps also offer self-priming, dry run and deadhead capabilities, and are ideal for handling shear-sensitive products. These AODD pumps are validated by both 3-A in the area of CIP and EHEDG cleaning protocol.

KSB at drinktec 2017 in Munich

Friday, August 11th, 2017 von admin

The focal point of KSB’s presence in Munich will be its four hygienic pump series Vitachrom, Vitacast, Vitalobe and Vitaprime. Thanks to the wide range of variants available with these pumps, nearly all tasks in relation with the hygienic handling of liquid and viscous food can be fulfilled. All pumps belonging to the Vita series have been awarded the certificates common to the industry, such as EHEDG, and their elastomer components conform to FDA standards. The pumps’ CIP/SIP capabilities are also promoted by electropolished wetted components and the use of high-grade stainless steels.

In Munich, KSB Service will showcase for the first time a special maintenance concept tailored to the hygiene-standard requirements of food pumps.

Almatec: Sanitary AODD pumps

Monday, August 7th, 2017 von admin

The Biocor pumps have been specifically designed for critical sterile applications, and meet the strict standards, regulations and operational requirements that govern the food and beverage industry because they contain no horizontal areas. Available with a 316L polished stainless steel wetted path, these pumps provide superior containment and utilize ball-lifting magnets that can be attached to the pump housing from the outside at the location of the four ball valves. With the use of magnets, the ball valves can be lifted from their seats, allowing the pump to be drained entirely without needing to be disassembled or removed from the application. This enables clean-in-place (CIP) and sanitize-in-place (SIP) capabilities.

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.

KSB at BrauBeviale 2016 in Nuremberg

Thursday, August 25th, 2016 von admin

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.

Wilden: Pure-Fuse diaphragms for hygienic applications

Tuesday, March 1st, 2016 von admin

Wilden_Pure-Fuse-DiaphragmPure-Fuse diaphragm technology incorporates a one-piece design that eliminates product-trap areas between the outer piston and diaphragm that can harbor bacteria, a critical consideration for hygienic applications. This patented design also provides an unbroken fluid-contact surface for CIP capability and reduced contamination risks. Pure-Fuse combines food-grade plastics and elastomers with a stainless-steel core using no adhesives or nylon fabric that can contaminate process fluids in the event of a breech. In addition, by eliminating the outer piston Pure-Fuse diaphragms experience reduced abrasion, which results in longer diaphragm life.

Wilden: 76 mm (3”) Full-Stroke Integral Piston Diaphragm

Monday, February 2nd, 2015 von admin

Wilden_FSIP_DiaphragmsThe new 76 mm (3”) Full-Stroke Integral Piston Diaphragm (FSIPD) is made for use in Wilden’s Saniflo FDA pumps, as well as its Original, Advanced and Advanced FIT series of air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps. These diaphragms are well suited for hygienic applications because they are constructed of food-grade Santoprene™, and the integral piston is completely encapsulated within the TPE material, meaning there is no outer piston that can trap fluid and particles.

The result is a durable, highly cleanable diaphragm assembly that features a large integral piston and a full-stroke shaft that enables it to maintain the same stroke length as conventional Wilden diaphragms. The diaphragm’s full-stroke design increases product displacement per stroke, which translates into improved suction lift, greater flow rates and higher efficiencies than experienced when using pumps that operate with reduced stroke diaphragms.

Carbon-graphite components for pumps

Friday, March 28th, 2014 von admin

end plate 3M1_2050The carbon-graphite components provide superior lubrication in most environments, and are ideal for pumping liquids with poor lubricating qualities, strong chemicals that attack metals, and to pump air, vacuum, combustion products and gasoline vapors. Metallized Carbon’s carbon-graphite vanes, rotors, and end plates are used in such dry running applications as automotive anti-smog pumps and gasoline vapor pick up pumps, breathable air pumps and vacuum pumps. In-liquid applications include vending machine beverage pumps, fuel and liquid chemical pumps, and medical liquid pumps.
