Seepex progressive cavity pumps are intended to improve productivity and reduce costs for food processors by providing effective product transfer and streamlining the removal of waste and by-products.

Labour costs are also reduced thanks to the automation of previously manual operations in many cases.

Many products are manually moved using tote bins, usually because they are very viscous, contain delicate pieces or are damaged by shear stresses.

Highly viscous products can be handled by progressive cavity pumps without any damage to the product.

The pumps deliver a pulse-free flow with volumes that are directly proportional to pump speed, thus ensuring the accurate addition of raw materials into mixers and onto production lines.

Delicate and valuable products are directly applied to pastry sheets and biscuit bases with resultant improvements in raw material use and production efficiency, according to the company.

Seepex progressive cavity pumps, using advanced auger design in open hopper pumps, can also mix two or more materials, thus eliminating batch mixing in some processes.

Mixing before product transfer has been carried out by Seepex customers in brewing, distilling, meat processing and ice-cream manufacturing.

New designs, such as vertical hopper pumps, continue to improve ingredient use by reducing the waste associated with residual materials inside pump bodies and pipe work.

Waste and co-product can be removed from production areas using Seepex open hopper pumps with integral auger feed screws.

Seepex installations handle a range of products, including whole chickens, fish waste, fruit and vegetables, spent grain, apple pomice and mixed food waste from ready meals.

The open hopper design allows products not considered to flow to be handled by progressive cavity pumps.

The BTM open hopper pump has internal knives, enabling the reduction of particle size without the use of additional grinders.

This particle size reduction reduces transport costs and produces slurry that can be disposed of using technologies such as anaerobic digestion and composting where appropriate.

Seepex has replaced a variety of systems including vacuums, water flumes, tote bins, conveyors and inefficient pumps.

The company can provide a free onsite survey and identify where the use of a Seepex progressive cavity pump could save water, energy, labour, time and money.
