Xylem expands food grade pump offering for the beverage industry

Flojet’s T5001 Series sets a new standard for bag-in-box air operated pumps

Thursday, October 20, 2016 — Xylem, a global water technology leader, is introducing the new Flojet T5001 Series, the industry’s first dedicated syrup transfer pump to meet European Union (EU) food grade standards, as established by the European Regulation (CE) No. 1935/2004. The regulation sets compliance requirements for materials intended to come into contact with food.

The Flojet T5001 Series air operated diaphragm pump is designed to provide superior performance and reliability for dispensing bag-in-box syrups, juice concentrate, teas, wines and liquor. The pump reduces wear to a minimum as a result of its excellent chemical resistance for a wide variety of syrups and concentrates, offering a service life of up to 140,000 litres.

Peter Wright, Market Segment Director, Residential and Specialty at Xylem, said: “Our customers are constantly looking for dependable and versatile equipment that can handle a diversified range of beverages. We designed the new T5001 Series with this in mind, providing them with a product that could truly respond to their heterogeneous needs, while meeting the restrictive European regulations.”

The T5001 Series operates only when a beverage is being dispensed, automatically shutting off when bag is empty and restarting when a new bag is connected, minimizing compressed gas consumption. Its high suction capability empties syrup down to a minimal residual, strongly reducing the amount of product being scrapped, while maintaining constant pressure at the dispensing valve to ensure consistent dispensing.

The T5001 Series represents the latest addition to Flojet’s wide range of food grade equipment, serving over four billion soft drinks per year and including:

  • The U Series Bag-in-Box (BIB) syrup pump, a high-performance air-operated dispensing pump, ideal for use across a wide range of hot and cold beverage applications. With its modular and compact design, configuration, assembly and installation are easier and quicker compared to other backroom dispenser kits, reducing in-field system construction time by up to 90 minutes.
  • The M Series mini air-operated diaphragm pump, capable of handling standard syrup viscosities and non-pulp concentrates. This BIB pump is one of the most compact beverage air pumps on the market and features a compact design and footprint, making it ideal for use in countertop applications.

The T5001, U Series and M Series will be on display at Xylem booth 6/131 during BrauBeviale 2016 exhibition, taking place in Nuremberg, Germany, 8-10 November 2016.
