Food Manufacturing

It’s impossible to run a production facility properly without pumps that  contribute to a hygienic, safe and  efficient environment. Finding food & beverage drum pumps that reduce spills and make it easier to transfer liquid content between containers is essential for an orderly operation and spill-free environment. GoatThroat pumps are used in the food and beverage industry to reduce product waste and create neat, balanced pours when transferring liquids from storage containers to point of use.. These food-grade pumps can help facilities to meet compliance for OSHA, CFR Title 21, parts 170 – 199 and other regulating bodies.  They will also improve your ability to meet HACCP requirements. They are capable of handling oils, soy, vinegar, various flavorings, cleaning fluids, water, and chemicals.

CIP Transfer Pumps

A GoatThroat pump makes an ideal clean-in-place (CIP) pump because it is easy to use and maintain in a production environment. GoatThroat pumps also have high life expectancy when compared to standard drum pumps on the market today. Many enterprises use GoatThroat pumps for direct contact with food-grade raw materials because they are safe and meet the proper requirements. In addition, these CIP pumps provide ideal performance for handling sanitizing and disinfection liquids.

Innovative Transfer Pump is a New Ingredient in an Old Family Recipe While major manufacturers measure line production in thousands of gallons per hour, food processing entrepreneurs may only need a few gallons of a given ingredient every 60 minutes. Nonetheless, reliable pumping is a prerequisite, and corrosion and abrasion-resistant pump components can contribute to product quality as their business builds. Stancatos’s restaurant exemplifies the entrepreneurial category. A Cleveland area mainstay since 1938, Stancato’s began bottling its spaghetti sauce and Italian salad dressing for diners who wanted to enjoy the toppings at home. Last year, the firm branched out into the retail distribution and acquired a former canning in Canton, OH to meet growing demand. “We were pouring ingredients into a bucket from a 55-gallon drum weighing about 400 lbs.,” recalls Scott Six, the plant’s production manager. “It was a two-man job, inconvenient, and hard work.” Like many manufacturers before …

Earth Supplied Products – Pumping Beauty

Cosmetics Manufacturer Improves Processes Thanks to GoatThroat Pumps For the passed fifteen years, Florida-based Earth Supplied Products has its hand in the beauty formulas of a wide variety of cosmetics giants like Estee Lauder, Avon and Revlon just to name a few. Catering primarily to companies based on the East Coast, Earth Supplied Products specializes in providing natural, hand-mixed cosmetic additives and ingredients to the personal care and cosmetic industries. Earth Supplied Products uses oils from natural sources like Black Walnuts, Brazil Nuts, Cotton Seeds, Pecans and even Pumpkins. These oils, purchased in 55-gallon drums, are normally dispensed from a traditional spigot style tap. The problem for company owner Peter Boncelet was the process of tapping them, which required each cumbersome 500-pound, 55-gallon drum to first be tipped onto its side. The act of tipping the large heavy cylinders was complicated and potentially dangerous. In addition, having the drums lying …

Innovative Transfer Pump is a New Ingredient in an Old Family Recipe

While major manufacturers measure line production in thousands of gallons per hour, food processing entrepreneurs may only need a few gallons of a given ingredient every 60 minutes. Nonetheless, reliable pumping is a prerequisite, and corrosion and abrasion-resistant pump components can contribute to product quality as their business builds.

Stancatos’s restaurant exemplifies the entrepreneurial category. A Cleveland area mainstay since 1938, Stancato’s began bottling its spaghetti sauce and Italian salad dressing for diners who wanted to enjoy the toppings at home. Last year, the firm branched out into the retail distribution and acquired a former canning in Canton, OH to meet growing demand. “We were pouring ingredients into a bucket from a 55-gallon drum weighing about 400 lbs.,” recalls Scott Six, the plant’s production manager. “It was a two-man job, inconvenient, and hard work.” Like many manufacturers before him Mr. Six concluded a pump was the solution; the only question was, what level of complexity?

An air pressurized pump powered by a shop-air compressor and equipped with a release valve to maintain drum pressure between 2 and 7 psig was the answer. “There’s no pulsing, and at four gallons a minute, it is plenty of volume for our purposes,” reports Six. Olive oil and red-wine vinegar are among the ingredients being transferred.

“I describe it as a beer tap for chemicals, ” says Nancy Westcott, president of New York based GoatThroat Pumps. – a description that makes her investors cringe but which quickly explains the spring actuated pump’s concept. Westcott purchased the molds and manufacturing rights to the 2-lb. pump from a defunct South African firm, renamed it the GoatThroat and partnered with three co-manufacturers to fabricate four food grade versions Stancatos’s is the first US food client, though Australia’s Yalumba Winery and other overseas companies have used the self-priming pump since their introduction in 1997.

Easy cleanability and replaceable o-ring make the units a good fit for good plants, though Westcott say any manufacturer dealing with drum transfer can use them. And material construction makes them appropriate in any application where chemical degradation is a concern.

GoatThroat Pumps have been widely used in a broad range of manufacturing and laboratory applications, as well as in food production in several overseas locations, including Australia’s Yalumba Winery. Stancato’s use of GoatThroat™ products marks the first time the pumps have been used in US food manufacturing.

Made of chemical grade polypropylene, all components of GoatThroat™ Pumps meet U.S. FDA requirements under CFR Title 21, sections 170-199. The pumps can be used to dispense over 1800 different fluids in any industry application that requires easy, safe and cost-effective fluid transfer/decanting. With a unique range of adapters for just about any opening, GoatThroat™ Pumps can pressurize any container from 5 to 55-gallons in seconds. And with an optional remote tap system, a pump can easily deliver fluids in a controlled manner at up to a distance of ten feet from the drum.

Catering primarily to companies based on the East Coast, Earth Supplied Products specializes in providing natural, hand-mixed cosmetic additives and ingredients to the personal care and cosmetic industries. Earth Supplied Products uses oils from natural sources like Black Walnuts, Brazil Nuts, Cotton Seeds, Pecans and even Pumpkins.

These oils, purchased in 55-gallon drums, are normally dispensed from a traditional spigot style tap. The problem for company owner Peter Boncelet was the process of tapping them, which required each cumbersome 500-pound, 55-gallon drum to first be tipped onto its side. The act of tipping the large heavy cylinders was complicated and potentially dangerous. In addition, having the drums lying down on their sides took up a considerable amount of space.

Wanting to improve worker safety, Boncelet conducted an Internet search that lead to his discovery of GoatThroat™ Pumps. He purchased one. Living up to its claim, the pump worked perfectly when inserted atop the upright drum. In addition to eliminating the tipping problem, the pump performed excellently at volumes up to four gallons per minute, with oils of all types and weights. Because it pressurized the drums, the pump made drawing fluid and emptying drums much easier than with the gravity-fed spigot. Providing improved volume control and increased accuracy, the pump eliminated waste and reduced costs. “The pumps have turned out to be a safe and smart solution for us”, says Boncelet.

“Not only are they more convenient, they are really cost effective. They have a life expectancy of 10 to 15 years. They eliminate the potential safety risk. And they can be easily cleaned, sanitized and re-used.” GoatThroat Pumps are made of chemical grade polypropylene, and all components meet U.S. FDA requirements under CFR Title 21, sections 170-199. The pumps can be used to dispense over 700 different fluids in any industry application that requires easy, safe and cost effective fluid transfer/decanting. With a unique range of adapters for just about any opening, GoattThroa Pumps can pressurize any container from 5 to 55-gallons in seconds. And with an optional remote tap system, a pump can easily deliver fluids up to a distance of ten feet from the drum.
