" All pet food, treat, supplement and
medicine applications require some
type of pumping in their processing. "
Jeff Zeak, Robert Reiser & Co, Inc.

he added, " but when products lend
themselves to being pumped, our
Pump Feeder provides an alternative
solution for delivering those products
from point A to point B which creates
design opportunities for us to provide
a better process for the customer. "

PET FOOD PROCESSING | December 2020 | www.petfoodprocessing.net

There are several features and benefits that should be considered when
selecting a pumping system. Some of
the most important of these include
sanitation, ease of use, food safety
and, of course, how the pump could
impact the product and the process.
" The sanitary pumps we use on our
Pump Feeders can either be cleanedout-of-place (COP) or cleaned-inplace (CIP), " Hoffmann explained.
" A lot of pet food applications we are
dealing with are thick, viscous slurries
and emulsions. We sometimes have
to pump great distances, which generates a lot of back pressure; so, the
pumps we select can handle pressures
as high as 300-500 PSI while maintaining a consistent flow. "
Food safety can be improved by
selecting a pumping system with a
short and direct product flow path
that reduces or eliminates " traps "
where product can reside, accumulate and harbor bacteria, Zeak
shared. Other considerations include
reliability and low cost of ownership.
It's also important for pet food and
treat processors to get good information on the front end so the proper
pump is selected.
" Avoiding damaging the product is
perhaps the biggest challenge for pet
food and treat applications, " Garner
explained. " For this reason, it's vital
to select the right style of pump, size
of pump and speed. Proper application and maintenance are also important factors. "

On the move
In recent years, pump technology
has advanced in several key areas.
