Rendering Pumps

The lamella pump with a cram feeder is one of the rendering industries best kept secrets.  These positive displacement pumps have many advantages:

  • Improves the response time of the raw material into the cooker.
  • More efficient delivery of raw material.  Incline augers allow for material to back flow in the trough.  Pumps allow for precision measurement of product to be delivered to the cooker.
  • Eliminates the air gap that auger feeding systems introduce for more efficient vapor removal from the cooker.
  • Less and more convenient maintenance.  All the maintenance is done on the ground.  No more overhead feed conveyors with leaky connections.
  • Pumps can be placed on multiple bins to allow for various raw materials to be blended.  This allows for tighter controls over ash levels.
