Bakery and confectionery equipment specialist standardises on Qdos

Dutch food equipment designer, Tanis Food Tec, specialises in process installations for bakery and confectionery products. Tanis Food Tec uses Qdos peristaltic metering pumps for its pilot machines deployed in R&D departments at major food manufacturers. The accuracy of Qdos pumps in the dosing of colouring and flavouring is vital during development processes to help optimise the quality and cost of the end product.

Qdos’ ReNu™ peristaltic pumphead technology lies at the core of the pump, ensuring the delivery of accurate and repeatable flow for fluids of wide ranging viscosities and at varying system pressures.

“The accuracy of the Qdos peristaltic pump is a key feature because colours and flavours are often very expensive ingredients,” says Piet Vader, the company’s Sales Manager. “These ingredients can cost more than €10,000 per kg, so precise dosing is extremely important.”

Using Qdos means that process uptime is maximised by facilitating quick, safe and easy pumphead removal and replacement, with no requirement for tools, specialist training or dedicated technicians. Unlike on many other pump types, using Qdos pumps means there are no valves or seals to clog, leak or corrode, reducing maintenance costs considerably.
