For many in the food industry, pumping delicate, viscous fluids and products that contain solids in suspension has been a regular challenge. There are many types of pumps on the market; however the effects on product quality can be disastrous if the wrong type of pump is installed in the process. The secret to successfully handling these important products comes from a technology which was first introduced by Jabsco. The Flexible Impeller Pump (FIP) offers significant benefits when compared to other pump types for the pumping of viscous foodstuffs and other fluids that contain fragile solids. Despite these advantages, the Jabsco FIP has remained one of the best kept secrets in the processing industry.
