Wilden®, the worldwide leader in air-operated double-diaphragm pump technology, is pleased to announce that it will be exhibiting in booth 8245 at the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Annual Meeting & Food Expo 2011. The IFT Expo, which brings together the industry’s largest collection of ingredients, equipment, processing and packing suppliers, will be held 11-14 June 2011, in New Orleans, LA, US.
Wilden’s Pro-Flo X™ HS (Hygienic Series) stainless-steel line of AODD pumps has been designed specifically to deliver the sanitary performance that is necessary in a wide variety of food and beverage processing operations. Offering the versatility, safety and capability needed in food and beverage processing, Wilden’s Pro-Flo X HS efficiently pumps a full range of viscosities, solids and shear-sensitive products. The design of HS pumps do not contain any mechanical seals or rotating parts, which eliminates any nooks and crannies where product residue can be trapped and compromise the sanitary operation of the pump. These pumps have also been engineered to meet the highest sanitary standards and requirements in the food and beverage processing industry, including those by EHEDG, 3A, CE, ATEX. USP Class VI and FDA CFR 21.177. Pro-Flo X HS pumps also feature Wilden’s patented Pro-Flo X air-distribution system (ADS) that allows the user to control air consumption and flow rates with the turn of a dial, resulting in reduced energy usage and true cost savings.
In addition to its Pro-Flo X HS pumps, Wilden Saniflo™ vacuum-controlled (VC) series metal pumps and Saniflo drum unloader system (DUS) have also been designed with food and beverage processing applications in mind. Wilden VC pumps have been designed to efficiently and sanitarily handle a wide array of very large solids because they do not employ an air motor, but utilize a vacuum generator that draws the product into the wetted housing. The Saniflo DUS has been designed to hygienically handle highly viscous food products that need to be transferred from storage barrels into mixing tanks during the manufacturing process.
