The Cornell hydro transport food pump is frequently employed to power open water 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 freeze tunnel. Others use the cooling 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 handles 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 based flume kits are a superb tool for a wide variety of industrial food processing applications.

As of this writing, this 8 inch Cornell FOOD PUMP is in stock NEW at Alard available for immediate shipment as a pump only, or can be integrated with a feed tank and drive (at extra charge) for a timely shipment.
