Quick-Strip Pumps Are Perfect For Hygienic Applications
CSF-CS, CSA and CSM pumps are ideal for transferring liquids in dairy, food, pharmaceutical and other similar process applications where reliable, ‘CIPable’ and easy-to-maintain pumps are particularly appreciated.
The range of pumps can handle capacities from 1 to 550 m3/hour with heads up to 155 metres.
Available from liquids handling specialists PUMP ENGINEERING, CSF pumps are manufactured in investment cast AISI 316L stainless steel for all wetted parts and feature a 6 vane open impeller which facilitates the handling of liquids containing particles or small solids.
The pumps are designed for CIP (Clean in Place) to ensure the elimination of dead areas and feature electropolished finishing of all surfaces. Fitted with standard motors or ATEX motors, they are back pull-out design and fitted with a quick-release clamp which allows for fast and simple dismantling.
The CSA version has an electropolished finish to 0.5µm Ra and is approved to US FDA 3A standard or European EHEDG standards, with an aseptic version available for pharmaceutical applications. Depending on the application CSF-CS and CSA pumps can be supplied with an internal or external single mechanical seal or flushed double mechanical seal for handling high temperature liquids or those with a tendency to crystallise. Elastomers are available in a choice of Viton, EPDM, silicon or PTFE.
Typical applications for CSF-CS pumps include handling sugar solutions, alcohols, beer, CIP solutions, milk, oils, vinegar, fruit juices, high purity water, suspensions, yeast and melted butter.
