This abrasive-duty SPX Potato Starch Slurry pump is designed for the transfer of sand-, dirt- and grit-laden potato starch slurries. The pump allows for the easy transfer and removal of viscous potato waste from peeling stations to waste removal tanks. The unit has no moving parts in the product zone and the pump rotor never touches the potato compound, so the highly abrasive nature of the product does not affect pump life. Hose technology enables the unit to generate suction lift and pump viscous potato waste dependably over a long period of time. In addition, the pump minimizes dilution water use so operating costs remain low.
