New Jabsco VeraFLEX Pump Cart from Xylem Saves Craft Brewers, Cider Makers and Microbreweries Valuable Production Time

Fully portable FIP pump automates liquid transfer without emulsifying; cleans lines and tanks: detailed in new Application Note

Beverly, MA – The Jabsco VeraFLEX Pump Cart™ from leading global water technology provider Xylem Inc. is an easy and effective solution to several tasks carried out at craft brewers and microbreweries.  Portable and easy to use, the VeraFLEX Pump Cart can be used to automate the transfer of beer and other liquids, recirculate beer during the fermentation cycle and carry out high-pressure line and tank cleaning.

Consisting of a Jabsco model 52800-2105 VeraFLEX flexible impeller pump (FIP) mounted on a lightweight powder-coated steel cart with pneumatic tires, the VeraFLEX Pump Cart can be moved around easily and is equally simple to maintain, so maintenance down time is minimal.  The Jabsco VeraFLEX pump features Xylem’s proprietary FIP technology, which allows viscous fluids and soft solids to pass through the pump without emulsifying or changing consistency.  This ability saves significant production time during spin fermentation of high-gravity beers, as the speed of the pump can be turned down to 250 rpm, enabling beer to be recirculated gently and oxygen injected during the fermentation cycle.  Beer reaches its final gravity in 6 days, compared to 12 – 14 days using conventional methods.

Other uses of the new VeraFLEX Pump Cart make it a real brewers’ companion.  It can be used to transfer beer and other liquids, a task which is generally carried out manually.  More viscous ingredients used in craft-manufactured high-quality beers, cider and microbrews, such as honey and molasses, can also be transferred from place to place using the pump.  As it is capable of delivering up to 60 GPM, it gives higher pressure clean-in-place (CIP) than centrifugal pumps for both line and tank cleaning.

Further details are downloadable in a new application note available from:
