Food and beverage manufacturers must adhere to the highest quality standards when it comes to protecting the integrity of their products and processes — and their brand!
Food products such as dairy, baked goods, cereals, beverages and confectionary demand pumps that meet today’s hygiene standards and are able to handle products with care.
Peristaltic tube pumps offer the best solution for sanitary pumping of food and liquids. Shear Sensitive products are easily pumped by peristaltic pumps due to gentle pumping action.
Clean in place (CIP) and sterilization in place (SIP) are essential in the manufacture of food. Peristaltic pumps allow you to clean in line without the need for further dismantling of the pump, saving time and reducing cost. There is no risk of bacterial growth in a tube pump as the products is fully contained within the tube, nor are there are any dead spots where bacteria can accumulate. The pumping action means the tube is swept fully and the pump can self drain. Additionally, food grade tubing can be sterilized by all normal methods of sterilisation including radiation, steam and chemical solution allowing local confirmation of process sterility and with the easy to change tube the only contact part then routine sterilization costs are kept to a minimum.
These highly accurate tube pumps provide repeatable metering for flavourings, colourings and additives. Accurate to ±0.5% they ensure the quality is always of the highest standard.
Peristaltic tube pumps have no seals or valves that can clog which means they are the most hygienic pump and also the most reliable pump. Tube pumps can self-prime and run dry, helping to reduce maintenance time and reduce cost.
