A client approached Pump & Valve with a requirement to pump the steak and gravy filling for a well-known pie brand. The filling was for their premium pies so the pump had to be able to pass larger than normal pieces of steak (2cm³ – 3cm³) without damage. The steak and gravy filling had to be pumped directly out of the cooker so not only was the mixture hot but the steak was very tender and pulled apart very easily.
The customer approached Pump & Valve with a primary requirement for pumping thick viscous golden syrup from a hopper to a filling machine and also the flexibility to pump to another part of the plant 50-60m away when required. Duty flow 11m³/h and the CIP flow jumped to 20m³/h. Head pressure was 6-8 bar.
A large brewery required a mobile & versatile pump that could be used around the plant for various duties. The pump needed to be self-priming, able to dry run, be air powered, able to dead head and be able to speed controlled easily.
