Watson-Marlow Pumps Group says its new line of MasoSine pumps is ideal for juice concentrate processing. With quick unloading time and ease of maintenance, MasoSine pumps are suitable for all phases of juice processing, in both the fast-growing ready-to-pour and frozen concentrate market segments. The pumps are said to offer superior speed of transfer, powerful suction, low shear and low pulsation.
The pumps are used in several phases of juice processing, including loading and unloading of the tankers that transport the concentrate, pumping concentrate to a blending process where the end product is ready-to-pour juice, and pumping concentrate to a filler for packaging as frozen concentrate.
In addition to pumping straight concentrate, the pumps can be used in other areas of the blending and filling operation, including filling lines for blended and single-strength juice, and for pumping corn syrup or high-fructose corn syrup in the blending operation.
