CIPable PD Pump Receives USDA Certificate
Fristam’s heavy-duty FKL series positive displacement pumps recently received an “Equipment Acceptance Certificate” from the USDA’s Meat and Poultry Design Review.
The certificate is stating the pump series complies with ANSI/NSF/3-A 14159-1 2002 hygiene requirements for the design of meat and poultry processing equipment, including CIP.
The high performance FKL uses an advanced rotary piston design to handle demanding applications. New patented technology allows this pump to operate with pressures up to 300 PSI, viscosity up to one million cps, shear sensitive products and adverse suction conditions. The FKL was developed to expand the limits of positive pump technology.
The FKL was designed to be cleaned-in-place. Three innovations promote this: cartridge mechanical seals, shortened rotor cleaning paths and fully swept surfaces. These innovations make the FKL the first close tolerance pump that can be cleaned-in-place without losing any performance.
The key is its balanced rotor design. Combining an improved rotor with shaft and bearing innovations allows the FKL to set a new standard of performance. The result is lower suction requirements, higher pressure capability and greater efficiency.
