As supplier of metering and water treatment technology, ProMinent places a strong emphasis on product quality and safety. The certification under Regulation (EC) 1935/2004 provides customers in the food industry with assurance that the metering pumps meet the strict requirements for use in food-related applications.

The compliance extends to various pump types, including diaphragm pumps with a dosing rate of 1 ml/h to 1000 l/h, such as the beta, gamma/ X, gamma/ XL and sigma models, as well as peristaltic pumps with a dosing rate of between 10 ml/h and 410 l/h, like the DULCOFLEX DFXa and DULCOFLEX DFYa.

Hygienic metering with hygienic design
Particularly notable is the motor driven metering pump sigma Hygienic, designed specifically for hygiene applications. All the pump’s components meet the applicable directives and standards for use in hygienically sensitive production areas, including European food contact machinery regulations. The liquid end’s simple construction and smooth, almost gapless surfaces, which have been optimised in terms of dead space, form the basis for the hygienic design, which enables easy CIP and fast disassembly.

Thanks to this additional option, food manufacturers can safely and hygienically meter media in food-related applications.
