Watson-Marlow provide Masosine SPS 2.5 pumps for DC Norris’ mashed potato transfer system, which can cope with the viscosity and are easy to clean.

Watson-Marlow Pumps Group supplied food processing company DC Norris & Co with a number of Masosine SPS 2.5 pumps for mashed potato transfer as its existing rotary lobe pumps could not cope with the high levels of viscosity.

DC Norris provides products for the food processing industry, including automated processing lines and standalone equipment. After extensive trials with a client for the supply of ’turn-key’ food plants across Russia they encountered issues with pumping in its two-tonne-per-hour mashed potato system.

The Masosine SPS 2.5’s sinusoidal rotor overcame the limitations found in the rotary lobe pumps and produced powerful suction with low shear, low pulsation and gentle handling.

Furthermore, the pumps could be dismantled, cleaned and put back together again within about 20 minutes and required no special skills or tools, so production line operatives could carry out the process instead of maintenance workers.

Key benefits of product application

  • SPS series pumps have a capacity of up to 91.2m³/hr and pressures of up to 15 bar.
  • Do not require timing gears, due to their single shaft and rotor.
