Progressive cavity (PC) pump manufacturer Seepex was set to showcase an EHEDG certified pump as well as an open hopper pump for viscous waste product removal.
The BCFH hygienic pump range has a low shear action and handles thin to highly viscous products, including those containing soft solids. There are minimal product changes due to shear stress during pumping and this, combined with minimal pulsation and accurate flow control, ensures consistently high product quality. EHEDG certification guarantees residue-free cleaning when using CIP, giving peace of mind that closed equipment is microbiologically clean. The BCFH pump was tested using a cleaning regime at a lower temperature, with lower chemical concentration and a shorter cleaning time than other cleaning-in-place (CIP) solutions.
