Perfect pumps for food applications
Watson-Marlow Pumps Group (WMPG) has introduced three new models to its MasoSine range of sinusoidal pumps.
Two of the new models, the SPS 250 and the SPS 500, provide customers will an even greater choice of pump sizes for a wider range of applications.
The third new model (SPS 600L) provides a cost-effective solution for higher capacity applications. MasoSine pumps have an exclusive sinusoidal rotor overcomes the limitations of conventional rotary lobe pumps to produce powerful suction with low shear, low pulsation and gentle handling the performance and features expected from the MasoSine SPS range.
Widely regarded to be the pump of choice for the food industry, MasoSine are highly reliable, economic pumps ideally suited to high pressure, hygienic operations. The SPS pumps also ensure superior viscous handling capability delivering powerful suction up to 0.85 bar. This allows products with viscosities from 1cp to 8 million cP to be transferred with ease.
SPS series pumps offer capacity up to 99.0 m³/hr and pressures up to 15 bar thanks to their heavy-duty construction. They can safely pump high viscosity products, while their innovative yet simple design allows economical in-process maintenance. With a single shaft and rotor, there is no need for the complex timing gears and multiple seals associated with conventional rotary lobe pumps.
Hygiene and product quality are two factors of paramount importance at food manufacturing plants. MasoSine pumps have a simple construction which makes them suitable for clean-in-place, steam-in-place or manual cleaning. Manual cleaning requires no special skills or tools and can be performed in-place by a line operative.
All MasoSine SPS pumps have a 20-year warranty on pump housing and cover. Customers also benefit from fully interchangeable components between pumps of the same size, which reduces the spares inventory.
Commenting on the extension to the MasoSine SPS range, Andrew Ashton, UK Sales Manager at WMPG said: “MasoSine offers exceptional batch transfer performance, ease of use and suction lift capability for products as diverse as soft fruit and savoury pie fillings, as well as highly viscous products. This extension to our range can help even more of our food industry customers make significant improvements to their process performance and the integrity of the end-product.”
