"Sinusoidal principle"

Sinusoidal pumping animation

The MasoSine Certa pump is a highly reliable and economical Positive Displacement Pump for food and beverage applications. Our exclusive sinusoidal rotor overcomes the limitations of conventional rotary lobe pumps to produce powerful suction with low shear, low pulsation, and gentle handling…all with simple and fast maintenance and 3-A certification.  
MasoSine engineers have overcome the limitations of conventional rotary lobe pumps to create one of the most efficient and reliable positive displacement pumps available.

MasoSine's exclusive single shaft and single sinusoidal rotor are the centerpieces of an innovative, simple design. With a single shaft and rotor, there is no need for the complex timing gears and multiple seals associated with conventional rotary lobe pumps. One rotor, one shaft and one seal equate to simple and economic maintenance.

Highly reliable MasoSine positive displacement pumps are the result of over 25 years of engineering innovation and product development. Customers benefit from less waste and faster processing with low shear, high suction, low pulsation, gentle handling of whole foods or highly viscous products, and simple economical cleaning and maintenance.

Maintenance takes minutes and can be performed in-place by a line operative. Replace off-the-shelf wear components to restore to “new pump” performance.

Features

Certa - the cleanest pump you will ever need

Engineers in food and beverage plants are frequently faced with pumping high viscosity products ranging from frozen orange juice, deli salads and bakery produce, to cheese curd and savory pie fillings. Certa meets the highest standards in hygiene and cleanability combined with  improving process efficiency and minimising total cost of ownership.

Applications

Certa applications in the food and beverage industryBeverages

Handling fruit juice concentrates with high viscosity can make pumping slow and prone to cavitation. This is especially true if the temperature drops below 0°C, at which point viscosity will make a step increase. 

When viscosity increases, the maximum running speed of a lobe or circumferential piston pump needs to be reduced considerably to avoid cavitation, so reducing the achievable flow rate. Additionally, power consumption drastically increases as the rotors cut through the thicker fluid.

With Certa, changing to a higher viscosity product has negligible impact on the flow rate or power required. For example, increasing viscosity from 20,000 cP to 200,000 cP nominally increases the viscous horsepower (VHP) by around 0.1 to 0.3VHP (0.22 kW).

Bakery

With demand for fresh bakery products rising globally, bakers are seeking improvements in processing everything from dough and batter, to confectionery fillings and frostings. Competition is fierce and product quality becomes a vital element of sales success.

Viscosities can register in the thousands, or even millions of centipoise, often requiring costly oversizing of lobe and circumferential piston pumps to handle the high viscosity and reduce shear. 

Dairy Industry

In the cost conscious dairy sector, finding ways to reduce cleaning costs is a major challenge and one which the Certa pump easily solves. The most common method for cleaning both pumps and pipework systems employed in the dairy industry, is CIP or clean in place, using large volumes of water and a cleaning agent which is dispersed through the entire fluid handling system.

Chemicals such as sodium hydroxide, nitric acid and phosphoric acid at concentrations below 1%,are diluted in distilled water for CIP.
Pumps are some of the most difficult equipment to clean via CIP. CIP cycles often take between 20 and 40 minutes to perform, depending on the system employed. That time is non-productive and the manufacturing/processing stops while CIP is performed. 

Handling particulates and soft solids

When inclusions such as soft fruit, diced vegetables,cooked pulses or meat are present, the Certa pumphandles these soft solids without blockages andwithout causing damage to the ingredients.
