The pumps are suitable for general applications requiring low-shear operation and gentle handling of delicate products with easy serviceability. The new models also provide the possibility of having heating/cooling front covers for processes, where products tend to harden at low temperatures. Seal faces have direct contact with high-velocity product media, which helps ensure a fast and secure Cleaning-in-Place (CIP) process, reducing both cleaning time, and contamination risk. Engineered for use within the food, dairy, beverage, and home-personal care industries, the positive displacement pumps conform to CE directives and EHEDG, 3-A and FDA hygienic standards. The pump design helps to maximize pump efficiency and to reduce pulsation and noise emissions, as well as reducing the possibility of product damage by internal product recirculation. Factory-set shimming simplifies maintenance by making the process of changing the rotor quick and smooth, with no further adjustment or retrimming needed.
