  • Progressing Cavity Pumps: Making The Most Difficult F&B Applications Simple
    Progressing Cavity Pumps: Making The Most Difficult F&B Applications Simple

    Though progressing cavity pumps are not the most-common pumps used for conveyance in food and beverage production, certain applications, such as those requiring high-pressure or conveying highly-viscous media, require this pump type. Progressing cavity pumps can be well-suited to food and beverage applications’ needs regarding contamination avoidance, but require an additional pump be included in the system for effective Clean-In-Place (CIP) procedures. With the right system design, progressing cavity pumps can reduce cost, lower maintenance needs, and achieve better results in complex conveying applications within food and beverage production.
