Pumps are typically classified by the way they move fluids. For the sanitary industry, we will only focus on positive displacement pumps and centrifugal pumps.
SPX Flow is our key provider for both pump types. In order to understand which pump works best for your needs, view more details below about the overall performance and function of PD and centrifugal pumps.
POSITIVE DISPLACEMENT PUMPS
Includes single and double rotary lobe pumps, twin-screw and diaphragm pumps. Key features include:
Has nearly constant flow regardless of the system pressure or head
Flow is increased when the viscosity is increased
Changing the system pressure or head has little to no effect on flow rate
NPSH varies as a function of flow determined by speed. Reducing the speed reduces the NPSH.
Also known as Rotodynamic pumps. Key features include:
Has varying flow rate depending on the system pressure or head
Flow is reduced when the viscosity is increased
Changing the system pressure or head dramatically effects the flow rate
NPSH varies as a function of flow determined by pressure
Stainless steel sanitary valves are the standard in food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. The corrosion resistance of stainless steel is necessary to cover the wide range of products that may be run through a valve. Whether it’s the low pH of a soda or tomato sauce or the corrosiveness of a CIP solution, stainless steel valves can withstand a wide range of processing conditions. Second, sanitary valves are designed to be completely cleanable. No hidden nooks or crannies for bacteria to thrive and grow.
The right valve selection is critical to proper functionality of your process and to minimize down-time in your line. SPX Flow offers a wide range of valves that ensure compliance, performance and cleanability.
Butterfly Valves offer great durability and ease of use for a wide range of services.
Ball valves offer great economy and durability for a wide range of applications that do not require clean-in-place (CIP) service. They are easy to install and maintain.
