Food Processing Pumps

Our hygienic pumps excel in food processing and provides many benefits from CIP and COP capability, compact design, mounting versatility and more.

Pumps used in the food processing industry ultimately must meet two standards:

  • Separate the product from the mechanical elements that move the product.
  • Maintain the integrity of the processed product.

Each food pump variation accommodates these challenges differently. Likewise, individual sectors prefer a specific pump type and design that suits their processing needs. Unibloc Hygienic Technologies makes a pump to fit your application and meet your processing requirements. The food processing industry works with a diverse, often expensive range of ingredients, which requires highly controlled pumping and transportation.  Many product components are of particularly high viscosity and often include abrasive additives and solid particulates. In addition to this, the requirement to comply with FDA & (EC) 1935/2004 regulations makes selecting the right equipment imperative.

Features and Benefits

Our sanitary pump excels in the food processing industry and provides many benefits:

  • Flat, crevice-free front cover that eliminates product dead zones
  • CIP and COP capability with easy Strip-down and cleaning
  • Compact, unique and shear design
  • Horizontal or vertical mounting versatility
  • Eliminates pump and motor alignment issues
  • Safe design with no accessible moving parts
  • Ability to disassemble and clean pumps
  • Products feature Tri-Clamps and simple designs to aid the disassembly process
  • High Viscosity, including barrel unloading systems that can support high viscosity applications
  • Self-draining
  • FDA-compliant and hygienic versions of all pumps available
