Whether refining fats, oils, and proteins or recovering gelatin, and biofuels, reciprocating pump valves are vital components within the food processing industry, helping to efficiently move ingredients along pipelines between vats.
Depending on the end product, valves must meet various application-specific requirements. During bleaching and de-acidification, for example, pump valves must have strong chemical resistance. Other pumps may need to be able to handle a wide range of liquid viscosities — from milk, fruit juice, and vegetable oil to thicker fluids like pig fat and lard.
Valves are also responsible for directing the water that cleans the equipment — a critical process to ensure food safety and sanitation. At Triangle Pump Components, our food processing pump valves, plungers, and stuffing components are built to last, providing you with reliable service for all types of applications.
