Gerber Foods Soft Drinks Limited are now the proud owner of their first 'One-Nut' fast maintenance Award Winning air operated double diaphragm pump!
Gerber is the largest supplier of both private label and branded juice and juice drinks in the UK. Their current pumps are the older style design, with large numbers of nuts, bolts and clamps, taking anything up to 3 hours to overhaul, so they were looking for a pump that was easier to use and strip. The Flotronic 'One-Nut' pumps can be completely stripped and rebuilt in less than 20 minutes, thus saving time and money!
Gerber won the Slimline 'One-Nut' pump as a result of a recent competition which was feature on the
www.pandct.com website, the leading portal website for process, control and manufacturing industries.
Unlike traditional designs of double diaphragm pumps which rely upon dozens of nuts & bolts or clamp bands which can leak and take several hours to strip and rebuild, the Flotronic design has just ONE nut to remove, thus enabling diaphragm changes in less than 10 minutes. Pumps are available in aluminium, stainless steel, engineering plastics and solid PTFE, with a range of elastomers including PTFE, Viton, Nitrile and EPDM.
