Open Hopper Pump for Wine/Juice
Product Announcement from SEEPEX Inc.
SEEPEX Inc. offers a variety of pumps for the wine and juice processing industries. Open hopper pumps can be fabricated with hoppers made to the user's dimensional requirements and can be fitted on carts for portability and ease of cleaning. Pumps are available with complete control packages as well as options such as TSE run-dry protection and a retensioning device to adjust stator for wear. seepex BT pumps have a unique induction system that ensures positive berry and must feed into the pumping elements, with capacities to 1,300 USGPM. This improves efficiency, lowers operating speeds for longer component life, and reduces fruit damage caused by too much recirculation. Gentle handling of the fruit is especially important for certain wine makers where it is desirable to ferment the entire grape rather than only the juice. Degradation of skins resulting from rough product handling may result in extra chemicals being released during fermentation, giving the end product undesirable characteristics. Pumps can be constructed to meet FDA requirements. For more information contact seepex, Inc.
