An ice-cream factory required a replacement for old lobe pumps, that were pumping raspberry ripple into ice-cream.
Main requirements were:
- Consistent pulsation free flow
- Linear flow control
- Seal-less design preferred – sugary product tends to effect seal faces
- Must be hygienic
- Must be portable
Pump & Valve supplied a Mouvex SLS1 Eccentric disc pump, mounted on a SS trolley. This pump is seal-less, utilising SS bellows to separate the wetted end from the drive.
The Mouvex SLS1 is fully hygienic and fitted with SEW geared motor and a Danfoss drive provided a non-pulsing flow which can be adjusted to suit various production speeds.
This pump was supplied after the success of a trial pump, which has been running hassle free for over 18 months.
