Hygienic centrifugal pumps for food and pharma
27 November 2015
The new range of Inoxpa Prolac HCP hygienic centrifugal pumps are suitable for applications involving high levels of hygiene, resistance to chemical agents and gentle handling of delicate ingredients.
Available from pumping specialists Michael Smith Engineers, the Prolac HCP range of compact, close-coupled centrifugal pumps are designed to provide flow rates up to 220 cubic metres/hour, maximum differential pressure (heads) up to 140m and maximum system pressures of 16bar.
HCP Prolac pumps are available in 316L stainless steel, are EHEDG certified, and will be particularly suitable for main process pumping duties in the dairy, beverage, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. They feature as standard a single internal hygienic mechanical seal, a stationary face of carbon, a rotating face of silicon carbide and gaskets in EPDM. Also, CIP (clean-in-place) and SIP (steam-in-place) is possible without the need to dismantle the pumps.
Higher specification options are also available to ensure suitability for a wide range of specific application requirements. These include double mechanical seals for additional security, gaskets and seals to FDA standards for optimum hygiene levels, different types of connection options for positioning flexibility, heating jackets for temperature sensitive products and ATEX rated versions which allow flammable liquids to be handled safely.
Hardened face seal options are available for mildly abrasive liquids, and there are a variety of elastomer choices to ensure product compatibility. Special models for handling liquids with up to 60 percent solids are also available within the Inoxpa range.
