Yokota Manufacturing Co.
Small-size Defoaming pump introduced
Contributes to low volume production, test-production and research
Yokota Manufacturing Co. (Pres. Hiroshi Yokota, Hiroshima-city, Hiroshima
pref.), developer and producer of hydraulic equipment such as pumps and
valves, has increased its "ASP Type" Defoaming-Degassing pump
series which have been highly evaluated by the food industry. The newly
added and released version is a small-size "ASP-0115" pump compatible
with low-volume production lines, research, and test-production. The newly
released pump can process 10 liters of normal water per minute at normal
temperature. The ASP type series performs continuous defoaming and degassing
by installing it to the lines. Moreover, the series has a lot of merit
in terms of quality and energy aspects because the settling time, which
is required for liquid stabilization tanks, is not necessary.
Four types of Yokota Defoaming pumps are available and the processing performance of each type is 10, 35, 60, and 90 liters per minute. They also meet sanitation specifications by equipping legs to establish a clearance with the floor. Defoaming of materials with a wide range of viscosity is possible, such as low-viscosity beverages to high-viscosity jam, and even with paste-like material such as bean paste (miso). As a result of their in-company tests, the ASP type pump was able to deform laundry detergent, which foams easily and is difficult to defoam, at a rate of 67 to 72%.
