The innovative fluid path design allows for enhanced cleanability using standard CIP or SIP Methods. The Certa Plus is fully CIP proven to USP Class VI, FDA, EHEDG and 3A standards, to avoid any potential product contamination caused by residuals after the cleaning process. This Aseptic certification ensures that the pump is self-draining, has a reduced CIP cycle time and requires lower volumes of cleaning agents.
The extremely simple maintenance performed in-place by the operator, together with 50 percent less power consumption compared to lobe and circumferential piston pumps, results in the lowest cost of ownership for process pumps in the in the cosmetics and personal care industries.
The functioning principle of these pumps is ingeniously simple. A single sinusoidal rotor creates four evenly sized chambers. As each chamber rotates it conveys the fluid from the inlet port to the outlet port. At the same time, the opposite chamber opens to draw in more fluid resulting in a smooth flow with virtually no pulsation.
This sinusoidal wave rotor design gently transfers valuable cosmetic and personal care products with minimal shear to prevent product damage and precisely dispenses product into vials with 100 percent volumetric accuracy.
The highly versatile Certa Plus process pump enables rapid product changeover and varying temperatures to vary viscosities.
