Pumps Used In Various Beverage And Food Industry
For the industries that are in the business of food and beverage, pumps are one of the vital equipment needed.
In many of these applications, there are requirements for compressors, and basically should be food grade pumps for pumping gases in place of liquids. Also, the sanitary replacements parts to be used must be food graded.
Here are few of the applications where pumps function as compressors associated with the food and beverage sector.
Pumps used in foods and beverages industry
- Coffee making machines
In coffee making machines, a compressor will be used for forcing hot water at higher rate of pressure passing through coffee beans when the coffee is percolating. This will increase the strength as well as flavor of the coffee.
- Dispensing drinks
In order to dispense beer, compressors are normally used. The compressor will be combined with certain cooling system for transporting beer passing through the lines and finally filling your glass.
- Dispensing Ice cream
Also, while dispensing any form of either frozen yoghurt or the soft ice cream, it will use a compressor for moving the desserts into your cones or cups.
- Nitrogen generation
In order to produce nitrogen a dedicated type of air compressor will use compressed air. To remove impurities air will be forced through series of filters. At the end, the final filter will remove carbon dioxide and oxygen.
Peristaltic pumps used in the foods and beverages industry
For many foods and beverages applications, peristaltic pumps can be used too. They will mimic the similar digestion system that of humans and animals by using a rotor having “shoes”, which will compress a hose for moving fluids.
All the fluids will touch only the hose, and will make them great for such sanitary applications.
Many companies use such peristaltic pumps as they are found to be quite reliable. Hence, they can reduce downtime and thus enhance productivity. Their design will ensure ultimate hygiene and sanitation. It even guarantees complete safety and high quality maintenance.
Dairy industry too uses peristaltic pumps to move their product for accurate metering while adding flavorings, colorings and preservatives. Also, breweries use them for moving beer and even for providing accurate dosing.
Also, the juice industry can benefit greatly by using peristaltic pumps as the acids present in fruit juices may cause cavitation on any other pump designs. The viscosity and acidity of juices is problematic for many other pump designs.
Therefore, peristaltic pumps are right solution for producing perfect and fresh juice in high quantities.
