In CIP applications, the pumps can be arranged in a series to take advantage of their unique “disc/cylinder” design. Because the pressure at the pump inlet is higher than at the outlet, the disc lifts from the pump cylinder, permitting passage of the water or cleaning solutions to flow through the pump, thoroughly cleaning the pump chambers. This unique feature eases the cleaning process and reduces cycle times so the pump can be put back into operation as quickly as possible.
The Do's and Dont's of Food Process Pumps
Conclusion: There are many potential pitfalls in food processing. Leaks lead to an unrecoverable loss of product and create unexpected cleanup costs. As mentioned, contamination during production brings with it a whole slew of far-reaching problems for the processor. Because of the ironclad need to produce food of the highest quality in every batch, strict regulations have been put into place to help ensure that both the producer and consumer are protected. Thanks to an innovative design that has stood the test of time for more than a century, eccentric disc pump technology stands ready to help food processors confidently overcome every challenge they may face.
