Thanks to its gentle pumping action and ability to pump solids, the Verderflex peristaltic hose pump available from All Pumps Supplies is often used in breweries for pumping yeast with 30% solids, which is a shear sensitive product that cannot be damaged or poor quality beer will be produced.
Due to the fluid, or yeast, being highly abrasive stator or impeller wear is common, which can result in very costly downtime, loss of production, and ongoing maintenance costs.
Easy to change and long life, Verderflex food grade NBR-F peristaltic hose is abrasion resistant and designed for an extended fatigue life to maximise up time. The Verderflex peristaltic hose pump has also been suitably engineered to ensure that the production does not have any costly downtimes.
This peristaltic hose pump has two duties: one for recirculating yeast around the pitch yeast tank, and another to pitch yeast from the pitch yeast tank into the wort line, which goes to the beer fermenters.
When yeast is transferred or re-circulated in a process, the lines may become empty and pumps can run dry. The design of the Verderflex hose pump with its external lubrication eliminates the need for expensive hygienic dry running protection.
Verderflex peristaltic hose pumps also meet customer needs with special stainless frames, NBR-F food grade peristaltic hoses, fast delivery and after sales service.
