Gentle Conveyance of Fruit and Vegetables

NEMO® progressing cavity pumps convey fruit gently and in one piece

Fruits & Vegetables

Fruits and vegetables have been an important part of daily nourishment and have given rise to systematic cultivation and harvest. NEMO® Progressing Cavity Pumps have been repeatedly confronted with challenges as the range of foods to be handled changes due to new product offerings to the marketplace. The specific type of NEMO® Progressing Cavity Pump used in a given application will depend upon the properties and consistency of the substance as well as the sanitary standards required.

NETZSCH pump designs include a block pump with flange connections, hopper pump with auger, sanitary pump models, self-priming pumps for emptying tanks, and mobile pumps for eliminating long suction pipes consisting of hoses. The versatility and characteristics of NEMO® Pumps are ideally suited for handling solids such as fruit and vegetable peels, stems or pits. Pumps in the fruit and vegetable industry are often used for feeding sensitive equipment, such as filters, which may be damaged by high pulsation. NEMO® Pumps generate almost no pulsation; they are perfectly suited for these applications. With NEMO® Pumps it is also possible to process whole fruits or vegetables directly at the receiving location, which can provide great savings in both time and effort. Sanitary conditions are also a priority with fruits and vegetables for health and shelf life. NETZSCH Sanitary or Aseptic Pumps can be used to guarantee the very best in germ-free conditions.
