Simple, easy-to-clean and high quality for the Australian Food Market
Food processing pumps are vital pieces in small-to-large-scale food and beverage productions. Our effective & efficient metering and measuring systems that facilitate control of dosage, general product transfer, decanting and treatments can help take food processing companies to the next level.
For this particular area, we supply a wide number of products designed by some of the most world’s most reputable names in pump manufacturing. This includes:
In addition to the extensive research that goes into our product supply, the performance of our products is guaranteed through on-going service and maintenance from our expert team. We have a technical service and engineering division with qualified personnel who have the appropriate training and equipment to Engineer and select a pump or system for your process.
We specialise in pumps designed to transfer product of varied consistencies; from slurry, sticky substances, pulps, or just standard liquids.
A great example of our food processing pumps in action is at the factory of iconic condiment producer, Beerenberg.
Pump choice in the food and beverage industry requires different considerations than other industrial sectors. Food and beverage production demands pumps that meet today’s rigorous hygiene levels, but are also able to transfer products in a gentle manner.
Peristaltic pumps, also known as tube pumps or hose pumps, fulfill both of these requirements. They are ideal for pumping shear sensitive products, for example, pitching yeast in beer brewing, and due to their design, are perfect for the sanitary pumping required for many food and beverage products.
One of the most important aspects of food manufacturing is sterility. The ability to clean in place (CIP) and sterilise in place (SIP) is essential to meet regulatory hygiene standards and manage production costs.
In a peristaltic pump, the product is fully contained within the hose, so no contamination from the pump is possible. Additionally, the physics of the pumping action guarantee that there are no dead spots within the tube where bacteria or other contaminants could accumulate. The hose is the only component of the pumping system in contact with the product, the easy-to-sterilise and easy-to-change tube helps keep costs to a minimum. The Verderflex peristaltic hose pumps have no seals or valves that can leak, they are robust, further reducing maintenance costs and reducing downtime on production lines.
Another feature of peristaltic pumps is that they can be used as dosing or metering pumps. They are accurate within repeatability of ±0.5% and metering capabilities of ±2% when used for dosing flavourings, colourings or other additives where precision is required.
Peristaltic pump use isn’t limited to high volume food/beverage production. They can also be used on a small scale, for example in vending machines. Panel-mounted peristaltic hose pumps are available as OEM products for incorporation into your own equipment.
Peristaltic hose pumps can run dry and are self-priming, features that combine with those discussed above to reduce maintenance cost and downtime.
Global Pumps was established in 1977, after the need for a versatile and customer service oriented pumps supplier in the market was identified. More than 35 years on, the team at Global Pumps continues to grow and develop new ways in which to effectively fulfil this mission statement.
