Hinds-Bock Piston Transfer Pumps move hot or cold flowable liquid products and mixtures from mixing, holding or cooking vessels to filling machines. Available in two sizes (128 & 250 oz/stroke), they pump from 7 to 25 gpm or more, depending on product characteristics, piping configuration and model. Inherently low shear, gentle piston pumping action with wide, open ports and valves and large sanitary fittings (2 ½”-4″ diameter) allows pumping of large soft chunks and particulates without bridging or crushing.

Designed to have low shear and with wide ports, valves and large sanitary fittings, flowable products with large soft chunks and particulates can be easily pumped without bridging or crushing.

Independently adjustable suction and discharge stroke speed maximizes efficiency to allow pumping of a broad range of products with delicate particulates — from thin noodle soups, gravy, chunky deli salads to shredded meat burrito filling, macaroni and cheese, chili, chunky vegetable stew, fruit filling, blueberry muffin batters and batters with fruit particulates.
