Within the difficult food industry, the use of quality mechanical seals on pumps is of paramount importance in order to maintain the high quality standard of the product at all times and, above all, to ensure maximum functionality of the manufacturing procedures.
The Meccanotecnica Umbra Group worked hard with the support of its Swedish subsidiary Huhnseal to find an innovative mechanical seal solution that could offer a qualitative plus to the pumps on which they are installed.
The mechanical seals for the food industry supplied by our subsidiary Huhnseal are always customised according to customer specifications - each project is unique, new and tailor-made for the end customer. The company always establishes strong partnerships with customers with specific service programs and customised product branding.
Mechanical seals for the food industry are designed to prevent the formation of deposits that could cause pollution of the treated product. If deposits of food processing liquid remain inside the pump, mould and bacteria can form over time and contaminate the product. This possibility is averted by the use of mechanical foodstuff seals that have been designed with special features such as the absence of sharp edges or corners that can promote deposits that are difficult to remove. Every seal from Huhnseal is designed under EHDG and 3A specifications to guarantee CIP (cleanable-in-place) and the materials are all Food Grade certified as required.
Applications of mechanical seals extend to the various stages of food processing, including pumps used to transfer liquids during various production steps, agitators that mix ingredients homogeneously, and mixers that ensure accurate mixing. These devices, critical in the preparation of food, beverages and related products, require reliable mechanical seals to prevent any form of contamination or decrease in quality. In this regard, the mechanical seals developed by Huhnseal prove essential to ensure that stirrers and mixers operate optimally, helping to maintain the high standards required in terms of hygiene and product quality.
