Efficient fluid handling and flow control can be a challenge for food processors. They must maintain contamination-free flow and meet stringent product quality and safety requirements while also keeping production rates high. Minimal downtime is paramount.
Masterflex® peristaltic pumps can provide the solution. Whether it is the injection of vitamins or flavor concentrates, or the transfer of thick molasses or solid particles such as vegetable pieces and bone particulates, Masterflex pumps stand up to the challenge. These versatile, high-performance pumps are designed to handle a wide range of food processing applications—from pumping shear sensitive products to highly viscous material transfer—while continuously providing accurate and contamination-free flow control.
Masterflex pumps never need to be cleaned or serviced between production changeouts because the material is always contained within the pump’s flexible tubing. Changing out the tubing is a simple procedure that takes less than a minute. A wide range of tubing materials is available for commercial food processing applications to meet USP, FEA, NSF, and 3A requirements.
