Abrasive candy coating application

520 pumpA company in Bryan, OH is the manufacturer of colored marshmallow peanut candies. The coloring and flavoring that is used in the manufacture of this candy, is difficult to pump due to its abrasive nature. This resulted in high maintenance and difficult cleaning of their existing precision gear pumps.

They were tired of the constant maintenance and expense of their precision gear pump, so they asked a local Watson-Marlow representative for help. After a sales call they decided to purchase three 500 series peristaltic pumps, each fitted with a low pulsation pump head.

Since the rotor inside the tube pump never touches the abrasive candy coating there is no wear on the rotor and clean up is very quick and easy. The tube is the only part of the pump to touch the product with no seals to wear out or replace, and a tube change takes only minutes. Upon the purchase of the Watson-Marlow pumps, the maintenance supervisor stated that they would save approximately $8,000 a year in maintenance costs.
