Landia cutter pumps enhance high speed vegetable processing

Posted: Friday 3rd October 2008

MPTK cutter pumps made by Landia are enhancing the wastewater process at one of the UK’s leading suppliers of prepared vegetables.

At a state-of-the-art processing facility in the Midlands, an output capacity of approximately 2 tonnes per hour is achieved by three highly abrasive peelers – primarily from potatoes, as well as carrots, swedes, parsnips, turnips, onions and leeks.

Despite the grit, stones and dirt-laden wastewater, Landia’s pumps remain unclogged, ensuring that no downtime is caused by breakdowns. The first Landia pump (7.5kW) was installed in 2001, with the most recent unit (also 7.5kW) required in 2006.

A spokesperson for the vegetable processor said: “The success of our plant depends on our ability to efficiently process and despatch large volumes of high quality prepared vegetables, so our treatment of wastewater also has to be first class and trouble-free”.

He added: “This is why we invested in Landia’s pumps, which are guaranteed not to clog – plus the fact we receive excellent service”.

Benefiting from Landia’s unique external knife system, the highly durable MPTK is designed and built with all the top quality hallmarks of Landia’s 70-plus years pump manufacturing experience. The MPTK is also available in a high pressure version, capable of pumping slurries and sludges more than twice the distance of conventional equipment.
