Screw Feeders for more than just butter blocks

Pump caramel blocks

BestPump launched the ‘BlockBuster’ pump and screw feeder system back in 2004 when we deployed our first butter block re-worker system in Fox’s Biscuits in Batley, Yorkshire, England.

Since then, as well as 25kg butter blocks, we have developed and refined our Screw Feeder technology to work with pastes, lumps, doughs and other ‘unpumpable’ materials.

This video shows a selection of the materials we can can pump and some of the add-ons and enhancements that we can offer to make food processing and food production easier, safer, more efficient and more consistent.

Check out this compilation video that shows how BestPump can take unpumpable materials and, using ingenious and innovative pump and screw feeder technology, make them pumpable.

We really can pump the unpumpable!
