The pump ensures delicate product handling and allows pumping of products containing large particulates such as half peaches Mango slices and whole strawberries.
The pump employs a reciprocating piston to displace the product through the chamber and uses flap valves to ensure constant flow in one direction.
The reciprocating piston is driven via a hydraulic cylinder, ensuring quite operation. The hydraulic drive unit may be mounted remote to the pump.
The hygienic design ensures no contact between the hydraulic fluid and product and is suited to CIP cleaning.
This pumping system ensures delicate product handling without breaking product integrity size or shape.
The Unica piston pump can also handle large particulates such as Peaches, Mangos, etc... due to the flap valves being 3" at the inlet and 2" at the outlet.
The pump can achieve flows between 2000 and 16000 lph and the product flow can be easily adjusted by varying the hydraulic fluid flow.
The pump handles hydraulic fluid pressures up to 150 bar, which allows product discharge pressures up to 20 bar. The pump is also self priming and can run empty of product.
The pump is fully constructed of 316 stainless steel and will operate at working temperatures up to 100°C.
The Unica® piston pump is suited to the food and beverage manufacturing industries and would be ideal for pumping difficult products for bulk transport.
