Pumping chocolate (as well as compound chocolate, creams and cocoa paste) can be a delicate process. For this reason, a number of factors have to be taken into account.
Because the viscosity of the fluid can be very high, it is essential to select the appropriate pumps. We recommend using rotary lobe pumps: in addition to being capable of pumping high-viscosity products efficiently, they are hygienic and easy to clean.
Maintaining a constant temperature is very important. Too high a temperature can cause caramelization of the product, whereas too low a temperature can lead to solidification or … Read the rest
MasoSine pump technology has solved a number of problems associated with Air-Operated Diaphragm Pumps (AODs) on Pukka Pies’ bakery production line.
The bakery had been using an AOD pump to transfer pre-cooked meat pie filling from a 200-liter capacity mixing bowl to a depositor feed hopper. The transfer of pie fillings, often involving high suction lift, can be a significant challenge for bakeries.

Bredel 50 CIP (clean-in-place) pumps are in operation at a global brand sauce and condiments manufacturing plant in Russia. They transfer cheese sauce, tomato ketchup, and mayonnaise and replaced pumps that were proving difficult to clean and maintain.
Pumps have been installed on two filling lines to transfer cheese sauce, which is heated to 167F. Here, the sauce needs to be pumped quickly from the hoppers to the filling line at flow rates of up to 1849 GPH. If the sauce cools in the pump hose or in the transfer lines, it will solidify, causing huge cleaning issues because hot … Read the rest
