Bornemann twin-screw pump at Pack Expo

 ITT Bornemann will be showcasing the SLH-4G twin-screw pump technology at PACK EXPO International 2014 on Nov. 2-5, booth number 10010

Bornemann SLH-4G twin-screw pump has received its European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG) EL Aseptic certificate, becoming the first positive displacement pump to be aseptic certified. This verification highlights the hygienic design of the SLH-4G model and approves the pump for operation in aseptic applications.

Wide range of speeds

ITT's Bornemann SLH-4G twin-screw pumps are engineered to operate within a wide range of speeds (up to 3,600 rpm), allowing the products to handle varying viscosities and clean-in-place processes. Due to its hygienic design, the SLH-4G series is 3-A Sanitary Standards, Inc.-registered, and has been installed in many food and beverage and pharmaceutical applications.

Aseptic applications

EHEDG EL Aseptic certification was established by EEHEDG in 2011.This type of certification is intended for single components that are suitable for aseptic applications. Candidates for the EHEDG EL Aseptic certification must pass three main tests related to aseptic applications. ITT's Bornemann SLH-4G twin-screw pump successfully passed them: the EHEDG cleanability test, the EHEDG sterilisability test and the EHEDG bacteria tightness test, authorizing the pump for aseptic use.

"Our ongoing development of the SLH twin-screw pump series is driven by the evolving needs of the key markets we have served for many years," said Aris Chicles, president of ITT's Industrial Process business. "The EHEDG EL Aseptic certification further qualifies our position in the food and pharmaceutical industries and expands our reach into new areas of operation."
