As companies within the food and beverage processing industries seek ways of improving the plant efficiency in response to economic challenges, SPX Process Equipment has responded with the introduction of a new Bran + Luebbe positive displacement pump, namely the ProCam Smart.
Available in four models offering flow rates ranging from 5l/h to 500l/h and suitable for pressures up to 20 bar, the ProCam Smart provides end-users in the food and beverage industries with all the proven benefits of Bran + Luebbe metering/dosing technology but with the added attraction of a low initial investment cost. Designed for a wide range of general purpose metering duties the ProCam Smart uses standard components throughout. For processing plants where a number of these pumps are in operation, this means potential savings can be made on stockholding and maintenance.
Applications which Bran + Luebbe has identified for this new pump include: CIP cleaning involving NaOH and Nitric Acid; and the addition of colourings, flavours, fragrances, essences and oils in soft drinks and foods.
The ProCam Smart is a hermetically closed pump containing a mechanically operated PTFE double diaphragm arrangement, the performance status of which can be monitored. So, for all those duties where leakage cannot be tolerated for health and safety reasons, or product loss needs to be minimised in order to optimise material usage, the ProCam Smart fits the bill.
“In designing this new pump, we have focused on refining every individual component to ensure optimum performance, which in turn influences the efficiency of the pump,” comments Steve Digby, Bran+ Luebbe’s UK Sales Manager. “All wetted components are made from Stainless Steel and the cast iron gear box contains a splash lubricated integrated worm wheel/shaft reduction gear type constructed from metallic components making the ProCam Smart both robust and easy to operate.”
The Bran + Luebbe ProCam Smart addresses the needs of many dosing and metering applications in food and beverage processing where investment and operating costs need to be minimised, but without there being any compromise on pump performance. With the ProCam Smart, Bran + Luebbe is providing a pump that can help companies to moderate their operating costs. That’s a smart move in the current economic climate.
