Hygienic application in the food industry

Manufacturers of milk-based food for babies and small children have to uphold the highest purity standards in their products, as well as consistent quality and optimal process safety in the plant.
Therefore, the decision from Hochdorf was made to purchase a Triplex G3F process diaphragm pump from experienced pump manufacturer LEWA. The Triplex series in the company's repertoire features pump units that are specifically designed for the high pressures and flow rates of the food and fat-processing industry, meaning that the required throughput of 4,000 l/h at 250 bar was no problem at all. The G3F also features a total of three M9 pump heads specifically selected for the aseptic application at HOCHDORF. These pump heads feature PTFE sandwich diaphragms, which guarantee both high operating safety and comparably low maintenance effort. The pump's hermetic tightness with the corresponding system connection ensures sterile conveyance of the product. All wetted surfaces are made of high-strength DIN 1.4571 (316 Ti) stainless steel and designed with a surface roughness of Ra < 0.5 µm in accordance with the hygiene requirements.
