Choosing An Industrial Sanitary Pump

When choosing the right industrial sanitary pump, there are several things to consider. Firstly, you should consider the material being pumped. Determining its viscosity, density, temperature, and flow rate will help you choose the kind and size of pump that is right for you. Secondly, the main function of the pump should be considered. Will it be evacuating containers? Used for filling? Batching ingredients? Your workflow and plant configuration also bears on pump selection. These variables include the processing environment. Liquids containing abrasive particulates, the length, size, and type of suction and discharge piping, elevations, pumping angles, etc. all must be taken into account. Industrial sanitary pumps can be used in industries like food, beverage, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical, among others.

Types Of Industrial Sanitary Pumps

Air Diaphragm Pumps

Originally designed to handle viscous products, air diaphragm pumps are a solid choice for container unloading, as well as moving products containing abrasive particles and in processes where dilution control is critical. They are ideal for food-related applications requiring high flow rates and maximum portability.

Centrifugal Pumps

Centrifugal pumps a popular choice in sanitary processing. Using one or more rotating impellers arrayed in a variety of configurations depending on the application and production requirements, centrifugal pumps are able to create higher flow rates than any other pump type. Best suited for low-viscosity fluids that are not aerated or partially vaporized, centrifugal pumps are particularly effective in beverage processing because of their gentle handling of sometimes-delicate liquids. Their uncomplicated design aids in maintenance, especially in clean-in-place setups.

Positive Displacement Pumps

Positive displacement pumps are ideal for processing materials too viscous for centrifugal pumps to handle. They are common in processing and managing products with larger suspended solids or chunks such as chunky soups or fruit fillings, with minimal damage to the large particles. Positive displacement pumps move media at a steady rate and fixed volume with each mechanical cycle.

Choosing the right sanitary pump can make all the difference in a production company’s profitability by reducing overall production costs, improving efficiency, and protecting against contamination. Pump Engineering is here to help you make the right choice! Contact us today to learn more.

The Basics Of Reliable Pump Installation

Many pump breakdowns are due to simple, needless failures, like the loss of clamp load which can cause misalignment and bearing failure. Reliable pump installation and basic maintenance can prevent similar avoidable failures from happening. When it comes to the reliability of its pumps, no industry or operation can afford to ignore the basics of pump installation.

Correct and complete installation practices can mean the difference between a pump that gives many years of trouble-free service and one that requires constant and repetitive maintenance. Most of the information herein refers to the single-stage, end-suction design.
Three particular areas must be satisfied to ensure that a pump will provide long and reliable operation within a system.

  • Foundation
  • Piping arrangement
  • Alignment

Foundation
In general, a pump should be mounted on a strong base plate supported by a strong concrete foundation. It is also necessary to properly connect the pump to the system by accurately aligning it to the piping system, as well as the driving motor.

A strong foundation and grouting can result in a unit that gives reliable, uninterrupted service versus one that requires constant realignment. It should be everyone’s concern that only the best materials—together with proper design—be used when installing the pump.

Piping arrangement
Without any doubt, this is the single most abused area of pump installation. In fact, it can be stated unequivocally that most pumps are piped up incorrectly.

Alignment
The industry has progressed well beyond any discussion of the statement that good alignment is essential to safe and trouble-free operation of rotating equipment. When we discuss “alignment” in the pump industry, we are usually discussing either “piping alignment” or “shaft alignment.” It must be noted that the term “coupling alignment” is a misnomer.

Conclusion
Improper pump installation can lead to premature failure and increased maintenance costs. Conversely, when they are correctly installed and given reasonable care and maintenance, your pumps will be capable of operating satisfactorily—and delivering for you­—for a long time.
