PT CIP Peristaltic Hose Pump for easy and simple ‘Clean in Place’
As a market leader in the supply and innovation of Peristaltic Hose Pumps Tapflo now have a solution for simpler, easier and quicker “Clean in Place” or CIP applications within the food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical markets. Through using our new innovative and unique wheel system the shoes are able to be retracted from contact with the hose to enable an efficient and easy clean in place procedure to be carried out. The user simply reverses the direction of rotation by a ½ turn to automatically retract the shoes without any manual intervention. Once the CIP procedure has been carried out the above is reversed and the pump can then be put back into action. This saves time and maintains the highest level of functionality within their system whilst using the minimum amount of parts.
The advantage of this technology is that the inner part of the hose is the only contact part with the fluid, ensuring that contamination of the pumped fluid is kept to an absolute minimum. PT CIP pumps can be supplied with the following FDA approved hoses:
- EPDM (White)
- NBR (Black)
- NR (White)
The hoses are compliant with the following regulations: EC 1935/2004 and FDA CFR21§177.2600
The “CIP wheel” technology is now available on a variety of PT models.
Capacities range from 0.5 up to 10 m³/h and discharge pressures up to 15 bar. As these pumps can be used on thin, viscous, abrasive, corrosive & shear sensitive fluids they are ideally suited to meet the requirements of a multitude of applications within the food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical markets.
