New and used Cornell hydro transport FOOD PUMPS in stock at Alard, 4NMP, 6NHP

Alard uses Cornell Hydro-Transport food pumps to build out “flume kits” to transport, chill, treat (with preservative solution for example), and / or sanitize (with chlorinated water) whole, or fresh-cut, diced, sliced, chopped and shredded food products. The "flume kit" includes a pump, feed tank, drive, and drive system sized to the buyer's specification.

This configuration is frequenly used by pre-cut produce packers. The split-second they cut their product, be it lettuce for salad mix for example, their shelf-life clock starts ticking, so they literally cut over a feed tank and drop right into chilled water to pull heat out of the product immediately. The Cornell expanded offset volute NHPP and NMPP pumps provide the gentle product handling they need to pump their tender, leafy fresh-cut products without bruising or damage.

Some of Alard's end-users employ open stainless steel 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 provide extended 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.

Alard has other good customers who use Alard's “flume kit” 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 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 be. 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 depending on / tailored to the specific food product(s) and application.

With Cornell's large range of hydro-transport pump size and material configurations, 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.
