Choosing a suitable Food Grade Stainless Steel Pump

Posted on 16 Aug, 2016

When some liquid food products are needed to be transferred from one vessel to another, the question arises on which type of pump would do the job? 

The answer one would need to consider first and foremost is, is the pump chosen a food grade stainless steel 316 (also known as marine grade) which is designed to be able to clean easily? Can the pump be Clean In Place (CIP)? Can the pump be easily dissembled and reassembled? 

Secondly, what is the product being transferred?

  1. Thin liquid like water or low viscosity oil, low viscosity sugar syrup, apple Juice, Orange juice etc.. then usually Centrifugal pumps are suitable. For CIP return lines, the CIP –B series pumps are suitable.
  2. Thicker liquid such as Apple sauce, Tomato sauce, Honey, Cooked Foods (spaghetti sauce, pumpkin soup etc..) then choose Lobe pump. If you are after a gentle Milk pumping for cheese making then, these TUL series lobe pumps with Bi-wing rotors are the way to go because the bi-wing rotors allow for larger volume per revolution (high volume pumping) hence can be run at lower speeds.
  3. For large chunks of fruits in syrup, Piston pumps are suitable. These pistons are also suitable for high discharge pressure for up to 30 bars.
  4. To clean these pumps either CIP or manual cleaning  Rua Kura Australian made cleaning agents work very well.
     

Australian made Commercial Cooking Kettles

Posted on 11 Jul, 2016

Sepak Industries based in Ingleburn NSW Australia has been designing and manufacturing stainless steel food grade Commercial cooking Kettles for over 20 years. Their design philosophy is based on efficiency of operation such as:

  • Labour cost saving by reduction in handling. This is usually achieved by installing transfer systems and weighing system.
  • Consistent quality of food produced by using automation system whereby recipes can be stored in memory and called up on whenever needed.
  • Every kettle larger than 100L is fitted with cleaning spray balls (2 spray balls for kettles with agitator) which can be connected to Sepak Industries food grade pump to spray cleaning agent on the interior of the kettles hence reducing need for operator to manually scrub the kettles. This system works well with Rua Kura Australian made cleaning agents.
  • Every system Sepak Industries designed is expandable for future expansion.
  • Energy efficient.
