Food and Drink


Hydra-Cell pumps are widely used in the food industry because of their seal-less design and Hydra-Cell’s ability to handle particulates, corrosives, caustics, hot liquids and abrasives. Food and drinks pumps reliant on dynamic seals are intrinsically vulnerable to abrasive liquids such as chocolate and sugar solutions and many flavourings. Its seal-less design enables Hydra-Cell to pump reliably with all these food and drink industry liquids in spray coating and other pumping applications.

Hydra-Cell’s very low shear pumping action safeguards the integrity of shear-sensitive oils and other vulnerable ingredients when pumping food and drink products.

Common applications of food pumps in food processing include spray drying systems, coating, transfer of process liquids, mixing and dosing. Hydra-Cell food and drink pumps are available with tri-clamp hygienic connections and with internal parts polished to a mirror finish surface, 0.4 Ra.

High pressure cleaning is another major application of the pumps in the food and drink industries. The Hydra-Cell design makes them ideal for pumping (hot or cold) cleaning and sterilising agents in C.I.P S.I.P. systems and high pressure wash systems for road tankers and storage tanks. In centralised cleaning systems serving independently operating hand-held washdown guns they offer a unique combination of controllability, fast response, sustained performance and low energy usage.
