A new pump for the food and beverage industry


The new MasoSine Certa pump from Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group has been designed to set a new benchmark in clean pumping for all food and beverage industry applications.

The pump not only delivers high suction capability to handle viscous products, it also offers significant advantages over alternative technologies. Unlike traditional pumps with rotors that cut through the fluid, Certa’s sinusoidal rotor gently carries fluid through the pump to dramatically reduce shear while cutting power consumption by up to 50% with high viscosity fluids.

Engineers in food and beverage plants are frequently faced with pumping high viscosity products, ranging from frozen orange juice, deli salads and bakery produce, through to cheese curd and savoury pie fillings.

For many years, Sine pumps have played an important part in conveying foods with viscosities of up to 8mcP. Certa now completes the existing product range by offering users a fully CIP capable pump at flow rates up to 99,000l/hr.

Food and beverage plants understand that equipment can play a key role in reducing the risk of contamination and maintaining high quality levels. With this in mind, all contact parts on the Certa Sine pump are FDA and EC1935 compliant.

With the high demand for cleanliness also comes the requirement for simple and fast cleaning, typically through CIP procedures. The cleaning time is reduced which results in a more efficient production procedure – this means that chemical and water use is reduced, while less wastewater requires disposal.

Benefits include gentle pumping with virtually no pulsation; superior viscous handling; simplicity; reliability; energy efficiency; interchangeable parts; and low cost of ownership.

The new pump series provides an ideal solution for food and beverage, cosmetic or at any facility that requires the highest cleaning standards.
