Sulzer designs and manufactures pumps and agitators. The Sulzer brand is synonymous with delivering high product quality and performance reliability that is required for the demanding applications of the food processing industry.

A combination of experience, understanding customer needs and a detailed knowledge of processes and applications has enabled Sulzer to develop innovative and sustainable pumping solutions.

Comprehensive pumps, mixers and agitators portfolio

Sulzer has a comprehensive portfolio of innovative process pumps, specialised pumps, mixers and agitators for producers of sugar, starch and sweeteners, which are all designed in accordance with the latest standards issued by ISO, API and ANSI.

By working directly with our customers and having full involvement in their processes, Sulzer is able to identify and develop optimal solutions. This service goes beyond the correct pump selection for the task: advanced materials, sealing solutions and overall operating efficiency achieve a reliable process and maintenance-free operation.

Pumps for degassing and high-viscosity liquids

Sulzer’s pumps are designed to work with the most demanding liquids. Through the company’s constant research, it has been able to develop innovative pumping solutions for the food industry. One example of this is the Ahlstar degassing pump, which is a self-priming and degassing pumping solution for liquids that contain gases.

Sulzer also works with Herold & Co GmbH to supply Helical Twisted Roots pumps, for high-viscosity liquids, such as massecuites, magmas, crystal suspensions, molasses, thick juices and other sucrose solutions.

Robust pumps and mixers

Sulzer’s pumps and mixers are renowned for their robust designs. The latest manufacturing technology and strict quality control procedures set high levels of efficiency and performance for all process conditions.

Sulzer tests all its process pumps before delivery. Together, these factors ensure that the customer receives excellent product performance and high lifecycle value.

Customer satisfaction is monitored in accordance with a planned procedure, and feedback is used to improve company processes. All Sulzer manufacturing sites are certified according to standards ISO 9001: 2008 (quality), ISO 14001: 2004 (environment) and OHSAS 18001:2007 (health and safety).

Customised pumping solutions for food processing

The operating environment of the food processing industry is changing and Sulzer continuously develops new pumping solutions to meet this challenge. Pump selection alone can significantly boost an operation’s efficiency and with its range of specialised pumping and mixing tools and years of expertise, Sulzer helps customers choose the pump for the right job. Sulzer has improved the reliability of process-runs and even changed some operations from a standby pumps practice to a single pump system.
