Raise a glass to INOXPA flexible impeller pumps

Pumping within breweries is often a delicate process. It needs to be just right to keep the organoleptic properties of the product together during distribution. Therefore, hygienic pumps are often essential equipment within brewing applications for the smooth and gentle transfer of fluids. 

As such, the brewing industry often turning toward specialist manufacturers, such as INOXPA, for their pumping equipment. In this article, BM Engineering Supplies discusses how breweries in Scotland can benefit from choosing INOXPA’s flexible impeller pumps as their beer distribution pump system of choice.

Why choose INOXPA flexible impeller pumps?

Part of their rotary pumps range, flexible impeller pumps from INOXPA, such as their RF series, are primarily structured from AISI 316L stainless steel casing and a rubber impeller. RF series pumps are available either as a  monoblock version with a direct motor at 1500 rpm or a bare shaft configuration. The standard mechanical sealing materials for INOXPA’s flexible impeller pumps are graphite and ceramic, along with accompanying EPDM gaskets. They also feature DIN 11851 adaptors as standard connections. 

Additional features that make INOXPA flexible pumps unique are the inclusion of reversible and self-priming pumps, as well as a double flat drive for the impeller and an external single mechanical seal. Above all, INOXPA impeller pumps are designed with easy maintenance in mind, making them an ideal solution for process environments found within the brewing industry.

The design of INOXPA impeller pumps makes them suitable for handling fluids containing both high and low viscosity, as well as those containing solid particles. Combined with their self-priming and reversible nature, this makes flexible impeller pumps an ideal selection for breweries looking for a high-performance distribution system. 

Any parts of INOXPA flexible impeller pumps that might come into contact with pumped materials are made from the same AISI 316L stainless steel as its casing. Therefore, this would ensure zero contamination for any product which would be distributed, ensuring the quality of the beer remains intact. 

As well as being suitable for the transfer of beer, INOXPA flexible impeller pumps are also well primed for use with other consumable media types, such as dairy products and edible oils, as well as other beverage types like whiskey.
