At Foodex stand L179, progressive cavity (PC) pump manufacturer SEEPEX will showcase an EHEDG certified pump as well as an open hopper pump for viscous waste product removal.The BCFH hygienic pump range has a low shear action and handles thin to highly viscous products, including those containing soft solids. There are minimal product changes due to shear stress during pumping and this, combined with minimal pulsation and accurate flow control, ensures consistently high product quality. EHEDG certification guarantees residue-free cleaning when using CIP, giving peace of mind that closed equipment is microbiologically clean. The BCFH pump was tested using a cleaning regime at a lower temperature, with lower chemical concentration and a shorter cleaning time than other cleaning-in-place (CIP) solutions.
Visitors to the SEEPEX stand can also learn about the company’s energy efficient pumping technology for the removal of waste and by-products in hygienic enclosed systems. The ability to remove waste in this way eliminates manual transfer between high care and low risk areas, reduces waste volume and disposal costs and produces ideal biogas feedstock.
