Hygienic progressing cavity pumps have been developed specially for the food industry and feature the following qualities:
- Electro-polished high grade stainless steel
- The most gentle pumping action of any pump design
- Gap and crevice-free design
- Minimal maintenance
- Wangen’s unique stator / rotor geometry ensures that the stators last longer than other similar pumps
Wangen can engineer a solution to most pump problems and have the experience and expertise to create unique products. One such pump was made for a customer who wanted to re-process blocks of fat, without have to melt & re-crystallise. Wangen made a block breaker, with a screw feeder that moved the plasticised fat into an Eccentric Screw pump which then pumped it to a moulding line.
The system was built to the highest safety standards and featured in-built CIP so that it could be cleaned without operators having to strip the machine down. That customer reported a six month pay back on their investment.
Managing Director of HpE Process Ltd Andy Allman said a unique characteristic of the Wangen eccentric screw pump was its class leading level of hygienic design. Wangen always consider the requirement to clean food machinery when they design something new.
