Ragazzini food and waste sludge pump
Moving food or waste sludge can be a difficult proposition for pumps. Liquids can be thick and corrosive, and definitely require the right pump. Italian-made Ragazzini brand hose pumps can move thick slurry comfortably when sized correctly with the right tubular element. The pumps use a roller on bearing method to ‘squeeze’ the tubular element, creating a vacuum on the suction side, enabling pumps to operate on high suction lifts.
The pumps are set up to run slowly to promote longer hose life and they are able to pump good size solids. Flows from just a few litres per minute up to 180 m3/h can be delivered, depending on pump model.
The pump has food-grade hoses capable of being sterilised with hot water (to 70°C) and/or steam (to 120°C). Ragazzini pumps can also be run in reverse, making them suitable for tank emptying and filling operations.
The Rotho peristaltic system major advantages include: simple, gentle pumping action preserves the quality of products whose organoleptic stability is fundamental; good system for transferring fragile delicate foods; avoids contamination as the substance circulates inside the tube without coming into contact with the mechanical parts of the pump; guarantees the hygiene and cleanliness indispensable in this sector; and it allows total CIP and SIP sterilisation of the tube and connectors in contact with the food products.
Other features include: leak detection; no seals or valves; and can run dry without damage.
