Food Process Pumps

Nearly 40 years ago, Cornell revolutionized the food industry by introducing the Hydro-Transport food process pump. Today, our pumps transport food products, like potatoes and tomatoes, with minimal damage.

Beyond the P and PP series pumps, Cornell provides pumps for various applications in the food industry, including clear liquids, hot oil, and wastewater.

Our food process pumps feature bearing frames with distinctive designs, incorporating mounting surfaces instead of mounting feet, making it easy to identify a high-quality Cornell pump.

Clear Liquid Pumps

Cornell's Clear Liquid pumps are renowned for their durability, reliability, and high efficiency. These pumps are used in various Agricultural, Industrial, and Municipal applications and come in Close-Coupled, SAE Engine Mounted, Horizontal, and Vertical configurations.

Hot Oil Pumps

Cornell's Hot Oil pumps are designed to prevent entrained steam from impacting the pump head and flow, which can occur when water is released during the frying process and turns into steam upon contact with the pump suction. The pump's impeller breaks up the water into smaller droplets, which can lead to steam formation that affects the pump's performance. However, Cornell's Hot Oil pumps feature an innovative vapor suppression line that helps to reduce this impact.

Hydro-Transport Pumps

Cornell's Hydro-Transport food process pump was the first of its kind when introduced almost 40 years ago. It is still widely respected for its ability to transport various food products with minimal damage. Alongside the P and PP series pumps, Cornell offers a range of other pumps used in the food industry, including for wastewater, hot oil, and clear liquids applications.

Refrigeration Pumps

Cornell provides two types of refrigeration pumps: the CB-series with refrigerant emission-free sealing technology and the HT-series hermetic refrigeration pumps. The HT series is ideal for stable operating systems with minimal vapor entrainment or cavitation problems and can be used as a drop-in replacement for systems currently using CB-series pumps. Both series have low operating speeds, improved NPSH, and an industry-leading warranty.

Self-Priming Pumps

Cornell's self-priming pumps are highly efficient and renowned in the industry for their durability, power, and energy efficiency. Their patented-Cycloseal® back plate technology makes them even more durable. These pumps, including the STX, STH, and STL series, are easy to maintain and perfect for wastewater, slurry, and water transfer applications.

Solids Handling Pumps

Cornell has a broad selection of pumps that handle solids, ranging from 1.25 inches to 30 inches in discharge size, to tackle even the most challenging solids-related tasks. These pumps are used in various agricultural, Industrial, and municipal applications. They can be mounted in multiple ways, such as close-coupled, SAE engine, horizontal, and vertical configurations. They have enclosed, semi-open, and delta impellers and are built using various materials. With a capacity of up to 40,000 gallons per minute, these pumps are sturdy, reliable, and ideal for a wide range of tasks.
