Industrial flexible impeller pump for standard and hygenic applications
The primary adcantage of a flexible impeller pump is its self-priming capability. As the vanes of the impeller are depressed and rebound, they create their own vacuum drawing fluidinto the pump.
The FIP-series flexible impeller pumps are availble in three categories and a total of five different sizes.
Polished stainless steel for hygienic applications
Industrial stainless steel for standard, non-sanitary applications
Bronze for non-corrosive duties
Thanks to many unique features flexible impeller pumps are used in a wide range of applications.
|Industry||Example of application|
|Food||Liquid dough, ice mix, egg yolk, egg white, whole eggs, stewed fruit, ketchup, brines, tomato concentrate, glaze, fruit yoghurt, dressings, edible oils, animal feed, whey, canned food, mustard, jams, vinegar, jellies, gelatine|
|Cosmetics & toiletries||Skin milk, shampoo, soap emulsions, lotions, gels, creams|
|Pharmaceutical||Glycerine, oils, syrups, sweeteners, flavours|
|Waste water||Flocculants (polymers or polyelectrolytes), sampling, sludge with air|
|General industry||Inks, dyes, glues, sampling, draining of tanks and sumps, foaming solutions, slurries, coolants|
|Beverage||Alcohols, wines, syrups, soft drinks, distillery products and extracts, ciders, fruit juices, flavours, yeast|
Flexible impeller pumps are used in a wide range of applications in most types of industries thanks to many unique features, which gives a number of benefits.
Simple design – Easy to select, service and use
Small dimensions vs capacity – Can be installed in confined places
Reversible – Recovery of product from discharge pipe
Inexpensive – Low investment
Minimum/zero clearances – Extremely good self-priming capacity, displaces air and gas positively or aerated products
Smooth operating principle – Fragile and/or shear sensitive products can be handled
Rubber impeller design – Hard/soft solids transported through the pump without damage to pump or product.
Excellent self-priming capacity: FIP-pump creates a negative pressure, and does not require priming or filling if there is gas or air inside the liquid or system. A dry pump has a suction lift up to 5 meters within a few seconds.
Pulsation free and reversible flow: The FIP-pump gives a uniform flow without pulsation. By regulating the speed of the FIP, you can easily control the flow. The pump is fully reversible.
Compact design: The FIP has minimal outer dimensions compared to its capacity, which simplifies space and installation requirements. The FIP product line is available close coupled to an IEC frame motor or pedestal mount for conventional in-line pump and drive arrangement.
Easy maintenance and fast to clean: Unique 3 piece design reduces maintenance
and cleaning time to a minimum. The pump cover is easily removed, providing full access to the impeller. Down-time is further reduced with no need to disconnect the pump from piping system.
