Whether you make potato products, process vegetables, make ready meals or snacks or process poultry or other livestock, Hydromarque’s range of food handling pumps will probably have a model that can make your system more efficient and reduce your production downtime.
At Hydromarque, we provide pumps to many food production companies of all types and sizes. These range from handling solids-laden wastewater with our Gorman-Rupp T series pumps to hydro transport (conveying of vegetable product in water) and hot frying oil recirculation with our Cornell range.
Any food processing where water is used (typically for washdown and cleaning) will need the water to be collected and disposed of or recycled. For this conundrum, our typical applications include restricted access sumps within the factory, collection sump screen feed, and mud pit transfer. These too are handled by our Gorman-Rupp Super T series.
Additionally, our Cornell Hydrotransport food handling pumps are used for conveying vegetables and fruit such as whole potatoes, chips, peas, apples, carrots, cauliflower and broccoli in water. Transporting products in this way is more gentle since the water provides a cushion surrounding the item and also keeps the product fresh and cool during the process. The main advantage over traditional conveyor systems is far less product damage.
Our Cornell hot oil pump range is capable of handling oils up to 230°C. These are centrifugal pumps starting at a 1.5-inch discharge size up to 8 inches. Commonly, these are used on potato crisp fryer lines or snack lines feeding into a heat exchanger, which then discharges into the fryer on a recirculation system to maintain a constant frying temperature typically from 170°C to 220°C.
We are also able to offer Cornell refrigeration pumps which were recently manufactured to suit the UK 50Hz applications. Whatever food handling pump you need, Hydromarque’s unrivalled team of experts will assist you with everything from choosing the right pump for your application to trialling and installing the new pumps in your system.
