Sine Pumps For Juice Processing
August 29, 2011
With quick unloading time and ease of maintenance, MasoSine pumps are the ideal solution in both the fast-growing ready-to-pour and frozen concentrate market segments. The highly economical and reliable MasoSine pumps offer superior speed of transfer, powerful suction, low shear and low pulsation. MasoSine pumps are used in several phases of juice processing, including loading and unloading of takers that transport the concentrate, pumping concentrate to a blending process and pumping concentrate to filler for packaging as frozen concentrate. The Sine pump advantage offers simplicity. With a single shaft and rotor, there is no need for the complex timing gears and multiple seals associated with conventional rotary lobe pumps. One rotor, one shaft and one seal equate to simple and economic maintenance. The MasoSine pump is capable of being cleaned-in-place (CIP) and various CIP modifications are available depending upon the product being pumped and the cleaning protocol used. It is also easily disassembled for manual clean-out-of-place (COP).
In addition to pumping straight concentrate, MasoSine 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. Customers typically achieve a significant savings in unloading time and costs. MasoSine's faster speed of transfer operations mean that unloading times for a 5,300 gallon tanker is reduced from nearly two and a half hours to just over an hour, reducing downtime during peak unloading periods. The superior suction capability increases product yield per tanker by about 100 gallons over other pumps, thereby reducing wasted product.
MasoSine pumps are the result of 30 years of engineering innovation and product development. The MasoSine pump's exclusive sinusoidal rotor overcomes the limitations of conventional rotary lobe pumps to produce powerful suction with low shear, low pulsation, and gentle handling, along with simple and fast maintenance, and certification under 3-A Sanitary Standards, Inc. (3-A SSI), the industry standard for food sanitation and hygiene.
