Pump Solution

Hygienic Centrifugal Pump

Tapflo’s Hygienic Centrifugal Pump with hygienic shroud

Tapflo offered the customer 3 CTH Pumps that had been modified to meet the customer’s requirements.

Pump: CTH BB 3T-07TM

The pump was finished with a 0.8ra surface roughness for optimal hygiene, fitted with hygienic Tri-Clamp connections for easy disconnection from the line to carry out cleaning. The solution also has a motor fitted with PTC thermistors for monitoring and the motor is suitable for inverter usage which allows the user to regular flowrate to the desired amount. Tapflo also supplied the pump with a hygienic motor shroud and feet, this allows the user to wash down the pump after being in operation without causing damage to the motor.

The CTH is part of Tapflo’s core range of Centrifugal Pumps. This is the hygienic model, ideal for industries like food, beverage, cosmetic.

Features & Benefits

The CTH Hygienic Centrifugal Pump was ideal for this customer’s requirements because we could make modifications to it easily to fit with the customer’s system and application. Other benefits include:

  • The pump needed to be hygienic as the end product is for human consumption.

Want to know more about this? Tapflo’s Sales Manager, Luke Simpson, wrote an article a few years ago explaining why pumps need to be hygienic. His focus is breweries, but it applies to all industries that will be used on, eaten or drunk by humans. You can find the article here, Don’t use Standard Centrifugal Pumps for Brewing.

  • Protective Shroud ensures that operators can use a pressure washer to maintain the hygiene of the pump and the surrounding area
  • Suitable for inverter usage for Speed control
