A canning factory was looking for a pump system which was able to pump fruit segments (apples, pears and peaches). The eccentric screw pump used previously was having problems coping with the large, hard peach stones in particular. The customer opted for a Boerger Rotary Lobe Pump. The Boerger Rotary Lobe Pump transfers the bi-products, which are sorted manually and transported via conveyor belt to the infeed hopper of the pump. The pump transfers the fruit and the resulting pulp several hundred meters to another part of the plant where fruit juice is produced. The pump and auger are made of stainless steel.
After the success of the Boerger Rotary Lobe Pump, the customer then placed another order for two smaller pumps with auger feed.
