However, with proper attention to design details these pumps can also be used for liquids containing particles and hard or soft solids.
Pumpability represents the VRC Company of the USA for their high-pressure piston pump used in the food industry.
Applications in the Food Industry
VRC piston pumps are specifically designed to pump viscous and particle-containing products in the food industry.
With large actuated valve openings to match suction and discharge pipe connections along with special features in piston and valve control, there is minimal possibility of product damage.
In fact, often the appearance of particles such as soft fruits is enhanced by pumping because of the uniform pressure applied around the particle.
These VRC pumps feature PLC control and are completely suitable for automatic CIP processes.
