Equipment Snapshot: Unifiller has launched its latest machine–the iPump–at the International Baking Industry Expo (IBIE).
The iPump Transfer Pump uses gentle pumping technology to quickly transfer a product without compromising on quality or production space. The iPump is particularly useful for operators looking to automate production but retain a small footprint.
With most transfer pumps being heavy, overly large or expensive, the iPump is a welcome addition to the industry. As a compact and affordable solution, the iPump can control production levels to ensure consistency and efficiency, and can gently pump products like buttercreams, batters, fruit fillings and sauces easily.
Consisting of a stainless steel construction frame, key features include a 1.5inch diameter flexible outlet hose, flow control to adjust pump speed according to the products being pumped, and an optical product sensor ensures hoppers can remain filled at a consistent level.
No heavy lifting is required, and a tool-free disassembly makes for a very quick and easy clean up. The unique tilt mechanism is also a key aid when it’s time for a quick product change-over.
