For pumping viscous food products, a sanitary lobe pump can be an ideal option.
Process Pumps was given an application for pumping tomato paste, the pump needed to be of sanitary design and also be capable of handling this very viscous product. A 3" OMAC rotary lobe pump was selected and then coupled to a 5.5kW 3-phase motor and gearbox assembly.
The entire pump and motor assembly were then mounted on to a fabricated stainless steel trolley for portability. The OMAC lobe pump is both 3A and EHEDG certified to ensure its suitability in food and pharmaceutical applications.
