MasoSine pump enables jam pumping at Polish croissant plant

A MasoSine SPS series process pump from Watson-Marlow Pumps Group is optimising the filling of croissants with jam at the Tomaszów Mazowiecki, Poland, plant owned by Chipita.

Chipita continually reviews its manufacturing processes, and recently decided to revisit some of its existing jam filling lines at Tomaszów Mazowiecki. To improve the jam application process, engineers at Chipita opted to take advantage of MasoSine SPS series pumps.

MasoSine pumps have been designed specifically for the food industry. The pumps feature a sinusoidal rotor that produces powerful suction with low shear and low pulsation that safely transfers delicate products without risk of degradation.

SPS pumps are suitable for applications up to 15bar pressure and flows up to 90,000 l/hr. Products with viscosities up to 8 million cP can be transferred with suction up to 0.85bar. Furthermore, the working principle of MasoSine pumps means they can contribute to energy savings and a reduction in CO2. In addition, maintenance takes minutes and can be performed in-place by a line operative.

All MasoSine SPS pumps have a 20-year warranty on the pumphead housing and front cover.

Once the MasoSine SPS pump arrived at Tomaszów Mazowiecki, it was mounted into position and production could recommence with hardly any downtime.

'The installation process was completed without any issues, and the new pump has resulted in a positive effect on production efficiency,' says Dariusz Krawczyk, technical manager at Chipita.
