Netzsch at drinktec: New design of hygienic rotary lobe pump

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017 von admin

The new design of the Tornado rotary lobe T.Sano has a completely smooth housing compared to the previous model, which attracts barely any dirt or dust. The range of the  rotary lobe pump T2 all-metal is interesting for food manufacturers due to its lack of dead space and also due to its oil-free design and operation. This pump is driven by a tooth belt drive, whereby the lobes are simultaneously synchronized. This technology is absolutely oil-free and maintenance-free.

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.

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.

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.

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.
