Wilden®, the worldwide leader in air-operated double-diaphragm pump technology, is pleased to announce it will be exhibiting in Booth #3960 at the upcoming Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) Annual Meeting & Food Expo 2012. The IFT Expo, which brings together the industry’s largest collection of ingredients, equipment, processing and packing suppliers, will be held from June 25-28 in Las Vegas, NV.
At this year’s show, Wilden will be showcasing its Pro-Flo X™ HS (Hygienic Series) stainless steel line of AODD pumps. Pro- Flo X™ HS pumps have been designed specifically to offer the versatility, safety and capability needed in food and beverage processing – efficiently pumping a full range of viscosities, solids and shear-sensitive products. The design of HS pumps do not contain any mechanical seals or rotating parts, which eliminates any nooks and crannies where product residue can be trapped and compromise the sanitary operation of the pump. These pumps have also been engineered to meet the highest sanitary standards and requirements in the food and beverage processing industry, including those by EHEDG, 3A, CE, ATEX. USP Class VI and FDA CFR 21.177. Pro-Flo X™ HS pumps also feature Wilden’s patented Pro-Flo X™ air-distribution system (ADS) that allows the user to control air consumption and flow rates with the turn of a dial, resulting in reduced energy usage and true cost savings.
In addition, Wilden will also be highlighting its Saniflo™ Vacuum-Controlled (VC) Series Metal Pumps and SanifloÔ Drum Unloader System (DUS) at the show. Wilden VC pumps have been designed to efficiently and sanitarily handle a wide array of very large solids because they do not employ an air motor, but utilize a vacuum generator that draws the product into the wetted housing. The SanifloÔ DUS has been designed to hygienically handle highly viscous food products that need to be transferred from storage barrels into mixing tanks during the manufacturing process.
Jim Wilden, founder of Wilden Pump and Engineering Co., revolutionized the pumping industry when he invented the air-operated double-diaphragm pump in 1955. Since then, Wilden has created a line of distinctive pumps that have proven to be trustworthy solutions to pumping applications in a wide variety of industries. Wilden—headquartered in Grand Terrace, California, USA—is a member of Dover Corporation’s Pump Solutions Group (PSG®).
