Food-and-Beverage
Pump Quick Facts

A

ll pumps in food-and-beverage processing applications should meet the
minimum Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Washington, requirements for
materials of construction (fda.gov). Depending on the application, process use, and
local plant sanitary guidelines, pumps may also have to meet 3-A Sanitary Standards
(McLean, VA, 3-a.org) approval. On this page is a collection of facts and source information related to food-and-beverage pumping. RP

Impact of the law
* Creates a new food-safety system
* Broadens the prevention mandate and
accountability
* Installs a new system of import oversight
* Emphasizes partnerships
* Emphasizes farm-to-table responsibility.

PUMPS TOOLBOX

FOOD-ANDBEVERAGE PUMPS
MARKET

This list contains the basic tools needed to
maintain food-and-beverage processing
pumps:
* backstops
* motor thermostats
* run-dry and dead-head protection
* detailed equipment specifications (one
size does not fit all)
* temperature gauges
* electronic thermometer
* variable-frequency drives
* variable-speed drives
* sprag (to ensure proper rotation)
* tachometer
* inductive tachometer
* tape for shafts with reflective strip to read
temperatures
* cleaning chemicals.

HYGIENE & SAFETY
STANDARDS
The hygiene and safety standards in the foodand-beverage industry have risen sharply
in recent years. Pumps are used in almost
all product processes and need to meet
increased requirements for:
* gentle handling, cleaning, and sterilization
* absolute hygiene in all processes
* operational safety, ease of maintenance.

FDA'S FSMA
The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act
(FSMA), the most sweeping reform of
food-safety laws in more than 70 years, was
signed into law by President Barack Obama
on January 4, 2011. It aims to ensure the U.S.
food supply is safe by shifting the focus from
responding to contamination to preventing it.
The public-health imperative:
* Foodborne illness affects 48 million (1
in 6) Americans each year, hospitalizing
128,000 and killing 3,000.
* Immune-compromised individuals
(infants and children, pregnant women,
elderly, those on chemotherapy) are most
susceptible.
* Foodborne illness is not just a stomach
ache. It can cause life-long chronic disease,
such as arthritis and kidney failure.
Why the law was needed:
* Globalization has resulted in importing
15% of the U.S. food supply.
* The food supply is more high-tech and
complex with more foods in the marketplace and the introduction of previously
unseen hazards.
* About 30% of the population is especially
at risk for foodborne illness.

In a recent report, Transparency Market
Research (TMR), Albany, NY, estimates that
the size of the global positive-displacement
(PD) sanitary pumps market was $4.55 billion
in 2015. TMR expects the market to expand
at a CAGR (compound annual growth rate)
of 10.1% from 2016 to 2024 and rise to a
valuation of $10.65 billion by 2024. In terms
of the varieties of rotary PD sanitary pumps
available in the market, gear pumps accounted for more than 32% of 2015 market
revenues in 2015.
