Gear pumps: the perfect choice for the food industry!

In the demanding world of the food industry, reliability, precision and hygiene are of paramount importance. When it comes to selecting pumps for injecting additives, flavourings, vitamins and colourings, gear pumps are the obvious choice.


Inject additives, colour and flavour with precision!

One of the main advantages of gear pumps is their precision. The consistent and precise displacement of fluids allows manufacturers to add precise amounts of additives to their products. This is especially important in the food industry, where even small variations in product composition can affect flavour, texture and quality.

Gear pumps custom configured for your process

Gear pumps are assembled specifically for your production process and have fewer moving parts, ensuring reliable operation and a long service life. Moreover, they meet the food industry’s strict hygiene requirements, with options for Cleaning-in-Place (CIP) and Sterilisation-in-Place (SIP).

Hygienic gear pump

Hygiene first

With smooth internal surfaces and minimal dead spaces, gear pumps are easy to clean, ensuring food safety and minimising the risk of contamination.

Accuracy guaranteed

Gear pumps offer consistent and accurate dosing of additives, which is essential for end-product quality. They are suitable for a wide range of viscosities, from thin to thicker substances, making them versatile in different production applications.

Reliability and efficiency

Thanks to their robustness and self-priming capability, gear pumps are reliable and efficient, with less risk of breakdowns and downtime. Moreover, they meet the strict guidelines of agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which is essential for the production of safe and high-quality food and beverages.

Self-priming capability

Gear pumps have good self-priming capability, meaning they can draw liquids from a lower level, which is useful when handling ingredients from storage tanks or drums.

Complete customised dosing systems

Suurmond designs complete dosing systems for the food industry to your specifications, including the use of Tri-clamps and orbital welded piping to avoid dead volumes. With our portfolio of gear pumps, we can pump flow rates from 1 µl/h up to 2,400 l/min with minimum dosing from as little as 0.25 µl!

Unit for dosing and pasteurizing vegetable oil.

Examples of applications:

  • Dosing of extracts (e.g. hops/caramel) in breweries
  • Dosing of fish oil or nitric acid in food production
  • Coupling of nitrogen and water (jam production)
  • Dosing of yeast solution and baking fat for coating breakfast cereals, cakes and crisps

In short, gear pumps are not only accurate and efficient for dosing and injecting additives in the food industry, but they also meet all cleaning, sterilisation and regulatory requirements, which is crucial for the production of safe and high-quality food and beverages.
