Solids-handling pumps keep food and beverage facilities safe and compliant

Keeping your production flowing. IFS handles some of the toughest wastewater pumping challenges in the Food and Beverage Industry. Our Fahrenheit® series high temperature and corrosion resistant pumps are available in several configurations including solids handling, shredding, or clear liquid designs. Pair our pumps with customizable controls for a complete package solution.

If your concerns in food and beverage processing include:
  • Sanitation and FSMA compliance to ensure minimal exposure to occupants
  • Ability to handle oil, grease and animal fats, pits, skins, rinds, other solids
  • High temperature wastewater, high volume runoff
  • Caustic and acidic chemicals used for cleaning

We offer specialized pump solutions that feature:

  • Non-clog, dual-shredding (Radial + Axial) impeller designs to tear, break, or rip solids
  • High temperature capability (up to 200°F continuous duty)
  • Corrosion resistant 316 stainless steel solids handling or effluent designs
  • OverWatch™ Direct In-Line Pumping provides the ability to eliminate wet wells and contain odors and gases

  ["excerpt"]=>
  string(944) "Squeezing Out Profits: Fahrenheit® high temperature shredder pumps unlock profitability at juice producer. A Florida-based juice production facility grows and processes oranges to yield 90 million gallons of fresh orange juice every year. As one of the largest suppliers of Florida orange juice in the U.S., the juice producer also operates a feed mill on-site that turns fruit peels into cattle feed. The 170°F hot, corrosive liquids caused pumps to overheat and fail at a high rate. Improperly shredded solids debris also led to clogging and pump failures. The in-house maintenance team replaced its submersible pumps frequently, at a cost of $10,000-$15,000 per year. Increasing operating costs motivated the mill to source new submersible pumps better suited for their specific applications. Learn why they chose Fahrenheit® SKXF Series high temperature, corrosion resistant, non-clog shredder pumps by Industrial Flow Solutions™"

  string(778) "Shredding Inefficiencies: Fahrenheit® RAD-AX® Technology Unclogs Utz Potato Chip Production. The Denver-based Condor Snack Company, owned by Utz Potato Chip Co., processes approximately 120,000 pounds of potatoes per day. Potatoes are delivered, washed to remove dirt, peeled, sliced, washed again, and then fried. Condor uses six different types of oils. Wastewater, debris, starch and the potato peels flow from floor drains into a sump. Equipment is cleaned weekly with 180o water and caustic beads to remove oils used in frying. This hot caustic liquid and oils flow into the sump and are added to the mix for a sump pump to remove. Clogged pumps halted production multiple times each shift.  Read how Industrial Flow Solutions SKGF series pumps  solved the problem."
