Whether you make potato products, process vegetables, make ready meals or snacks or process poultry or other livestock, we will probably have a pump which can make your life easier, enhance your efficiency and reduce your production downtime.
We provide pumps to many food production companies. These range from handling solids laden wastewater with our Gorman-Rupp T series pumps to hydrotransport (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 / cleaning), it will need to collected somehow and disposed of or recycled. Our typical applications include restricted access sumps within the factory, collection sump screen feed, mud pit transfer. These are handled by our Gorman-Rupp Super T series.
Our Cornell Hydrotransport (Food) pumps are used for conveying vegetables and fruit such as whole potatoes, chips, peas, apples, carrots, and cauliflower / broccoli in water. Transporting product in this way is a very gentle way to move it since the water provides a cushion surrounding the item and it also keeps the product fresh and cool during the process. The main advantage over traditional conveyor systems is far less product damage.
The Cornell hot oil pump range is capable of handling oils up to 230 degrees C. These are centrifugal pumps starting at 1.5 inch discharge size up to 8 inch. They are commonly 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 degrees C to 220 degrees C.
We are also able to offer Cornell refrigeration pumps recently being manufactured to suit the UK 50Hz applications.
