Safety standards for food and beverage processing are already among the strictest of all industries, and the regulations seem to increase every year. Now, as the industry faces the COVID-19 threat, safe and sanitary food handling is more important than ever. When pumping beverages, viscous food slurries and solids, it’s imperative to have a pump that can not only process materials, but also maintain rigorous hygienic standards by avoiding outside contaminants.

Hygienic Pump Benefits & Advantages
When it comes to handling sensitive foods and beverages in a safe, efficient, and hygienic manner, SEEPEX positive displacement pumps hold the obvious edge. SEEPEX pumps are engineered to exacting standards, meaning they can handle soft solids without damage. Low pulsation, linear accuracy, and stable feed pressures mean low shear action for both low- and high-viscosity products.
All SEEPEX positive displacement pumps conform to U.S. 3-A Standards, as well as FDA and EHEDG guidelines. SEEPEX offers clean in place (CIP) to allow for residue- and bacteria-free cleaning. Sterilize in place (SIP) designs use superheated steam to provide sterilization during the cyclic operation of the pump. And, they offer open-hopper pump options for non-flowable products like cheese, butter, meats, and doughs.

SEEPEX is proud to be a 2020 Company Member of the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG). This distinction means SEEPEX pumps meet the most stringent standards of hygienic engineering. Gentle handling, easy cleaning, effective sterilization, operational safety, simple maintenance, and maximum hygiene are required for EHEDG membership.
