Example of using a magnet drive pump to transfer detergent for CIP

Food processingDairy industryBeerBeverageTransfer acid and alkali


Introduced products MP
Liquid Alkali liquid (caustic soda) up to 48%
Acid liquid (nitric acid) up to 60%
Application Magnet pump to transfer detergent for CIP

In food manufacturing processes, every part of the facility need to be washed, including pump and piping, as well as the manufacturing facilities. CIP (Cleaning In Place) does not require disassembly and manually washing the equipment as was done before. The pump transfers detergent, while removing the dirt in the equipment by the pump pressure.
Sanwa magnet pumps are used in a CIP process. The detergents that are used are hazardous liquids such as alkalies caustic soda and nitric acid.
The various advantages of the Sanwa magnet pumps shown below were evaluated and our pumps are used because they do not leak hazardous liquids and ensure corrosion resistant against these liquids.
