October 23, 2015

Kiremko and Packo are proud to present their newest product pump, named the VPCK. This innovative pump, which is the successor for the current VDKK product pump, adds value to your production process. The product pump is built for the vegetable and potato processing industry. Due to its larger pump housing and custom stainless steel impeller the VPCK meets the requirements of the market: less product damage and an improved productivity of the process line.

Based on experiences with the current VDKK product pump the complete geometry of both impeller as pump housing were studied through CFD and re-designed with an as large as possible free passage in an as wide as possible work zone. Packo and Kiremko developed a testing method with which they could compare the number and size of product damage in an objective way. The new VPCK product pump gives the best results compared to other reputable pumps. The results of months CFD study and field tests are a range of four new types in several sizes.

The pump is executed in high-quality stainless steel, which means it is hygienic and durable. Applications for the VPCK product pump are, among others, process lines in French fries, pre-cooked and fresh potatoes and potato flakes. The installation dimensions are identical to the predecessor VDKK, which makes the pumps easily interchangeable.
