Flotronic’s ‘E’ Series pump has been specifically designed for the Food and Beverage industry and other processes where product contamination must be avoided. The pump’s features include Flotronic’s established and unique ‘ONE-NUT’ pump design which allows swift diaphragm access without disconnecting process pipework.

The internal surfaces of the ‘E’ Series pump can be effectively ‘cleaned in place’ or, alternatively, easy dismantling can be carried out for cleaning and inspection. Cleaning is aided by the provision of polished wetted surfaces to 0.8μm Ra maximum and an electro-polished overall finish. Cleanability is also assisted by the incorporation of a support stand whereby the pump can be inverted for full draining.

“The ‘E’ series pump passed EHEDG’s tests with flying colours,” says Flotronic’s Chief Engineer, Peter Wheal, “confirming that the pump meets EHEDG standards for sanitary product transfer. Other features, including a diaphragm rupture detection system with instant pump shut-down alarm facility and BS, DIN and ISO hygienic connection options, all help to keep product contamination free and to ensure that hygienic standards are not compromised.”
