Food Process Pumps

foodprocesspumpProduct Information

Cornell introduced the first Hydro-Transport food process pump to the industry almost 40 years ago. Unlike Solids Handling pumps, or other types of pumps, that are sometimes used in the food industry the Cornell P and PP series pumps are designed and manufactured with the sole purpose of pumping food products. The Cornell Food Process pumps have the lowest product damage rates in the industry and are the pump of choice for food processors around the world.

P Series

  • 3″ through 6″ discharge size
  • Flows to 107 l/s and Heads to 30 meters

PP Series

  • 4″ through 12″ discharge size
  • Flows to 523 l/s and Heads to 50 meters

Hot Oil Pumps

hotoilpumpCornell’s Hot Oil pumps are the pump of choice for food processors around the world. Enhanced vapor handling characteristics are the focal point on Cornell’s latest hot cooking oil pump innovations. When fresh product passes through the fryers a great deal of water is involved. The water travels along the bottom of the fryer, intact in a liquid phase at 200°C, until it reaches the pump suction. Here the action of the impeller breaks up the water into smaller droplets which flash to steam. Ordinarily, entrained steam would severely impact pump head and flow, but Cornell’s vapor suppression line innovation prevents this phenomenon.
