Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions (WMFTS) (England, United Kingdom) highlighted a variety of peristaltic and sinusoidal pumps for the plant-based and cultivated alternative protein markets.
Watson-Marlow cased drive peristaltic pumps offer flow stability, providing accurate and repeatable process control for nutrient feed fermentor applications.
The end product of both plant-based and cultivated processes can be difficult to pump due to its sticky and viscous nature. MasoSine Certa pumps from WMFTS can handle these products due to the sinusoidal rotor that delivers a lower shear, gentle pumping action for the transfer of high viscosity end product.
Reducing energy consumption and the associated costs of handling viscous products, Sine pump technology typically requires up to 50% less power than lobe or circumferential piston pumps. The savings increase in line with viscosity.
Watson-Marlow cased drive pumps for the alternative protein cultivated industry offer:
- No hard piping required
- Near-zero maintenance
- Field-proven performance for fermentor feed
Flexible and scalable, without changing contact materials or losing performance, Watson-Marlow peristaltic pumps ensure the process remains controlled and repeatable at every scale.
Using Watson-Marlow pumps for fermentation provides gentle handling and superior hygiene.
The pumps have been successful in piloting applications.
Operator training is reduced for maintenance and more time can be spent on research.
Watson-Marlow process pumps share comprehensive remote, analogue, digital and PROFIBUS communication protocols.
