6 inch FOOD PUMP, Cornell NHTAF18K, in-stock, Y5188

hydro-transport FOOD PUMP.


A Cornell 6 inch food pump with flanged inlet and outlet connections. The Cornell Hydro-Transport Food Pump is an excellent foundation for a pipe flume, open flume, wash flume, chill flume, disinfectant bath, or other water conveyor configuration for gently conveying high volumes of whole or cut food products in water at tons-per-hour volume capacities.


  • Cornell 6NHTA-F18K cast-iron hydro flow food pump with a two (2) vane mild steel impeller for higher flow rate and HP capacity than a standard NHP model food pump.

  • y5188c_crop_email.jpgSix-inch inlet / outlet.

  • Manufacturer rated for solids handling ability for products up to 3 inch diameter.

  • Specifically designed and built for industrial food processing application use with tons-per-hour throughput capacity.

  • Manufacturer recommends 2 or 3 to 1 ratio of water to product, with your product capacity determined by horsepower, RPM, and total dynamic head resistance. Pump curves are available by request; --call 315-589-4511 do discuss your specific application requirements.

The Cornell hydro transport food pump is frequently employed to power open food product transport flume systems, while others pump into a closed pipe flume, which they run in a coil pattern on the ceiling to conserve floor space. The flumes provide hold time to remove heat, and extend exposure to the water, which usually includes either a sanitizing agent, or a preservative solution such as vitamin C; depending on the product. The power of the Cornell Hydro-Transport pump allows food producers to deliver their now chilled and treated ingredients to any point in the plant where they want to dry, mix and pack the final product.

Others use the chill flume for pre-cooling blanched (very lightly cooked to kill the active enzymes) food products in water prior to running them through an IQF freezer tunnel. Others use the flume system just to convey product in water. In every case, the powerful Cornell pump can gently move high tons-per-hour output to wherever it needs to go in the plant.

ALARD also stocks and custom-configures various kinds of dewatering, solids-separation, water recovery and filtration equipment to recover the food product from the pump water, and to recapture, treat and recirculate the water as necessary, as well as drying and packaging equipment to complete the process; all tailored to the end-user's specific food product(s) and application. With Cornell's large range of hydro-transport pump size and material configurations, and with ALARD's ability to configure and "gear" the pump to the buyer's specific needs, ALARD's Cornell Hydro-Transport food pumps are a superb tool for a wide variety of industrial food processing applications.

As of this writing this unused 6 inch food pump is in stock at ALARD, in LIKE NEW condition and available for immediate shipment.
