Food Grade Pumps

What Are Food Grade Pumps?

Food grade pumps are vacuum pump technologies which meet the stringent hygiene requirements of the food industries, including the food and beverage and packaging sectors. Often, due to their best-in-class hygiene standards and reliability, lobe vacuum pumps are the ideal choice for the food industry. This is because they can handle both low and high-viscosity fluids and because they often have stainless steel elements, which is of an AISI 316L standard and is an approved material for the industry.

Why Is The Certification Important?

Exact certifications differ, depending on the process or application they are being used for, but standard regulations include EHEDG (certified in its entirety), FDA-approved and 3A-approved. These certifications all ensure that the vacuum pumps are safe for use within the food industry! This means that they meet all of the hygiene and health and safety requirements, guaranteeing clean, safe products. This is important as the products of food and beverage processing will obviously be consumed by the general public, meaning safety and sanitation are essential.
