Pump Glucose And Syrup For Cereal Bar Production
UK leading cereal bar producers has recently expanded their production of cereal bars by investing in a new production facility at a cost of between Euro 5 and 6 million at their UK plant. As a result of previous reliable service, they have now installed a further five Slimline Ultraclean hygienic Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps as part of the new plant.
The FPL 'One Nut' fast maintenance Slimline pumps are used to pump colourings, flavourings, condensed milk, glucose and various syrups either from pallecons or drums into the weighing/storage vessels.
The 1½" 316 stainless steel pumps with virgin PTFE diaphragms and elastomers can transfer at a rate of up to 250 lt/min. The suction is flooded and they discharge up to 40 metres distance and 4 metres vertical through 1½" pipework.
The pumps and system are CIP'd (Cleaned In Place) with hot water at 80ºC and each pump has an integral hot water jacket ensuring the product being pumped stays fluid.
"We decided to use Flotronic AODD pumps again, following our previous successful experience – they have never let us down!".
If self draining is critical then the Slimline Ultraclean FDA approved hygienic pump is ideally suited because it is machined from solid 316 Stainless Steel, with no welds and designed to be self draining, which reduces product residue. By eliminating media residue, the pump eliminates risk of bacteria or other contamination in hygienic applications.
