Compact and versatile pump
By Doug Picklyk
Unifiller launched its iPump at the International Baking Industry Expo (IBIE) in Las Vegas (Oct. 8-11, 2016).
Useful for operators looking to automate production but retain a small footprint, the iPump uses gentle pumping technology to transfer product without compromising on quality, drawing directly from most mixing bowls and pails from 60 to 140 quarts.
The iPump can handle products like buttercreams, batters, fruit fillings and sauces. It has a stainless steel frame, and key features include a 1.5-inch diameter flexible outlet hose, flow control to adjust pump speed according to the products being pumped, and an optical product sensor to ensure hoppers remain filled at a consistent level.
A tool-free disassembly makes for quick and easy clean up, and its unique tilt mechanism helps when it’s time for a quick product change-over.
