AxFlow develops feed system for food processing production lines

23 October 2015

The system comprises an auger into which ingredients are fed and then forces them into the pump via a screw feed.

This provides the pump with a constant flow at a pressure no greater than 4 bar to maintain the integrity of the product.

AxFlow has developed a bespoke feed and pump system for food processing applications. The Waukesha pump performs exceptionally well handling delicate media, particularly where it can become viscous. However, in some applications where the nature of the media prevents a steady flow from a gravity feed system, the pump can be starved resulting in erratic flows on to the next stage of the production cycle, such as a homogeniser. The screw feed auger, which meets all hygienic requirements, removes this problem, ensuring a smooth and continuous flow

According to AxFlow, its auger feed and Waukesha pump system maintains product quality and enables producers to meet production processing targets.
