Which pumps are best for your Dairy application?

When it comes to choosing a pump that is suitable for dairy, it is important to take into consideration the viscosity of your application, the temperature it should be kept at and whether your installation requires a self-priming pump. TS Pumps have a great range of hygienic and sanitary pumps that can be used for a wide range of dairy applications including Centrifugal Pumps, Lobe Pumps and Diaphragm Pumps.


Safety requirements of your Dairy Pump

One of the most important things to remember when looking for a dairy pump is to make sure it meets hygiene standards. One of the best ways to do this is to choose a pump that has FDA approval. This will ensure that parts within your pump are sanitary meaning they can be used for food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and beverage products. Other hygiene standards include EHEDG certification which ensures that a product meets European standards when manufacturing. Our Pomac Pumps are EHEDG rated, as are the Aseptic Diaphragm Pumps.


Our Dairy Pump recommendation

At TS Pumps we have three Diaphragm Pump options available that are suitable for pumping dairy: Sanitary Diaphragm Pump, also available with revolutionary low energy technology (LEAP) and an Aseptic Diaphragm Pump. The benefits include:

If you are looking to pump viscous dairy products such as yoghurt, custard, butter or curdled milk, the best option would likely be a Sanitary Lobe Pump. It works by rotating two-lobe components inside the suction port which creates a vacuum to draw the product through to the pump casing. This Lobe Pump is also fully EHEDG compliant and has the advantage of CIP for easy and efficient cleaning.


How can I maintain the temperature of my product?

If your dairy product needs to be kept at a certain temperature, we can supply you with a heating or cooling jacket to help maintain a consistent temperature for your application. These are available across our pump ranges.
