Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group produces sinusoidal high-flow pumps to improve energy efficiency for food manufacturers.
Sinusoidal pumps for the food processing industry
Watson-Marlow offers traditional lobe and sinusoidal pumps using MasoSine technology. Manufacturers need to pump a variety of products, which can be challenging due to different viscosities.
The torque required to drive the pump increases with viscosity, resulting in the need for large electrical motors that require more power.
MasoSine pumps are not affected by viscosity and can use smaller motors than traditional models.
The rotor overcomes the limitations of conventional pump technologies and is able to deliver low-shear, low-pulsation and gentle handling.
High-flow pumps for food plants
Watson-Marlow's MasoSine SPS range of high-flow pumps is popular with food plants worldwide. The company's high-flow pumps are suitable for applications of up to 15bar pressure and flows of up to 90,000l an hour.
Products with viscosities of up to eight million centipoise (cP) can be transferred with suction of up to 0.85bar, making them ideal for food products.
The pumps allow for easy maintenance, which can be performed in-place by a line operative.
Pumps for the prevention of batch contamination
Watson-Marlow offers pumps that prevent bacterial growth, batch contamination and wasted product. They can be cleaned-in-place (CIP), in-line and at full velocity.
Pumps are certified to US Department of Agriculture (USDA), US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), US Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) and NSF Class VI standards.
Watson-Marlow works with clients to demonstrate how its pumps deliver significant process efficiencies over the lifetime of the equipment.
Other factors that need to be considered include flow rate, system pressure, product temperature, suction conditions and the size of any inclusions.
Handling particulates and soft solids
Watson-Marlow offers pumps that can handle various products, including fruit, vegetables, whole spices and pieces of cheese and ham, without blocking the unit or damaging the ingredients.
The company's pumps provide significant improvements in batch consistency and eliminate the wastage of spoiled end-product and raw ingredients.
Watson-Marlow's range of pumps and process equipment maintains product integrity and increases uptime for food manufacturers.
The pumps are reliable, easy-to-use and low-maintenance.
Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group has direct sales operations in 28 countries and a worldwide network of distributors for support, maintenance and optimisation of MasoSine pumps and systems.
Clients can be supplied with certified spares, components, service and support on a global basis.
