Wilden Introduces New Sanitary Pumps at Anuga 2015
Wilden, a PSG Dover brand, will be displaying its line of Saniflo FDA and Hygenic Series air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pumps at Anuga Foodtec 2015. New models are powered by the company’s just-released stainless steel version of its energy-efficient Pro-Flo SHIFT Air Distribution System (ADS).
Wilden’s SHIFT Saniflo pumps offer versatility, safety, and capability in food and beverage processing. The pumps are able to handle a wide range of viscosities, solids, and shear sensitive products. Designed with 316 stainless steel wetted parts and tri-clamps for compatibility with sanitary piping systems, the pump series offers users significant energy savings, long operating life, and simplified maintenance. Additionally, the SHIFT Saniflo pumps are completely seal-less and do not use rotating parts, which can be breeding grounds for product residue, compromising the sanitary operation of the pump.
These pumps feature Wilden’s patent-pending Pro-Flo SHIFT ADS system, which automatically restricts the amount of air going into the pump at the end of each stroke; this prevents over-filling of the air chamber, conserving energy and lowering overall operating costs. Using this system can result in up to 60% savings when compared with similar AODD technologies.
ProFlo SHIFT pumps are available in a variety of sizes and can be compliant with industry standards such as EHEDG, 3A, FDA CFR 21.177, USP Class VI, 1935/2004/EC, CE and ATEX requirements. The diaphragms are also available in many different materials of construction.
Wilden will also be showcasing its innovative and patented Full-Stroke Integral-Piston Diaphragms (FSIPD) at Anuga. The FSIPDs are designed for hygienic applications; they feature food-grade Wil-Flex diaphragms with the integral piston completely contained by the TPE material, meaning there is no outer piston where fluid and particles can be trapped, nor fabric or adhesives that could contaminate the fluid being pumped. The diaphragm’s full-stroke design increases product displacement per stroke, which translates into improved suction lift, greater flow rates and higher efficiencies than experienced when using pumps that operate with reduced stroke diaphragms.
Anuga FoodTec will be held from March 24-27 in Cologne, Germany.
