Tech Tip: Pump Seals

All pumps have seals, but not all seals are the same. Alfa Laval LKH seals are the ultimate design for cleanability, maintainability, and versatility – resulting in the highest quality seal, with lowest cost of ownership:

• Single external seal is the cleanest solution in pump sealing available.
• Seal wear is always kept out of the product.
• Front loading seal allows for quick onsite seal change.
• Only two seals are needed to support the entire LKH pump range.
• Easy upgrade to flushed or double seal.
• Rapid seal change without requiring a reshimming of the pump.

Contact Technical Services at 800-826-8302 with your application details, or your account manager for an on-site product demo.

Tech Tip: Discharge Hoses

Thinking of using a discharge hose without a wire to reduce the weight of large hoses?

The drawback is that the weight of the hose can cause it to flatten out a little, creating opportunities for the hose to bend and kink. Also, if a CIP cycle is run through a hose that has a bend in it, the heat will set the hose in this new shape and can ruin it completely.

Instead of sacrificing hose life and performance for weight, try specially coated suction/discharge hoses that reduce drag and are therefore much easier to move, but will wear well and perform like your regular reinforced suction/discharge hoses.

Caveat Emptor: “Let the buyer beware”. Often used in regards to the purchasing process, it’s a phrase describing any informational asymmetry present in a contractual deal. It implies that the goods sold are “as-is” – placing the onus on the buyer to complete due diligence as to the product’s pedigree prior to purchasing. With the increased presence of e-commerce in industrial distribution, it’s certainly a principle of growing importance that deserves careful consideration when making purchasing decisions.

As a wide-line supplier to the food processing industry, Nelson-Jameson carries thousands of verified, quality products across six major categories: Safety & Personnel, Production & Material Handling, Sanitation & Janitorial, Processing & Flow Control, Laboratory & QA/QC, and Packaging & Ingredients. One way in which we bring these items to market is through our website, nelsonjameson.com. Some of our products are proprietary and/or exclusive, but many are not. For example, there are over 2.5 million search engine results for hair net suppliers. Clearly an abundance of buying choices exists, but we are of the opinion that Nelson-Jameson should be your first choice of supplier – we offer competitive pricing, product support and expertise, reliable logistics, value-added services, trusted products and a “one-stop-shop” purchasing experience. However, we digress. This blog entry’s purpose isn’t to promote our strengths, it’s to highlight that sometimes consumer choice – especially through a medium like the internet – comes with caveats.

downloadThe importance of recognizing these caveats was highlighted in a recent article in 3-A Sanitary Standards, Inc.’s quarterly industry newsletter. 3-A is the industrial sanitary standard relating to the “cleanbility” of dairy and other food processing equipment. It was developed by processors, regulatory sanitarians and equipment fabricators in the 1920s; and, in the interest of public health, gained the support of the U.S. government in the 1940s. Currently, there are 71 3-A Sanitary Standards and 10 3-A Accepted Practices utilized in various capacities by more than 450 companies across the globe. Processors know and trust the 3-A Symbol, and often demand it for their food processing equipment. Nelson-Jameson sells sanitary equipment in our Processing & Flow Control department that meets 3-A Sanitary Standards, and also holds a 3-A certification for our hose assembliesContinue reading

Tech Tip: Hose Supports

Extend the life of your sanitary hoses by purchasing hose supports! Prevent exterior wear and fitting damage by using hose supports to keep hoses off the ground and next to the ends.

We stock most sizes and can get other styles if you want something specific. Options include bright colors to help raise awareness and prevent tripping and adjustability to accommodate different hoses.
