The most widespread use of a honey pump is in the process of transferring the honey from a tray where it was prepared to a barrel. The other most widespread pump in this domain is the honey metering pump. This suction pump is used in the bottling of honey by sucking up honey from a barrel or from a honey ripener.

Food-grade pumps for the sugar and starch industries

The production of sugar relies on several applications of pumps for transferring liquids as well as for moving the molasses. For molasses, usually stored in tanks, Pompes Japy offers a range of force pumps that are capable of pushing viscous fluids similarly to a lobular pump.

In the sugar industry, the evaporation of sugar syrup during the vacuum production of sugar requires a specific food-grade pump. Vacuum cooking requires precise control over the cooking temperature: food-grade pumps enable vacuum evaporation. The technique of preservation by vacuum dehydration also requires this process.

The Japy food-grade transfer pumps and pneumatic membrane pumps are also often used in the production of sugar. In the process of manufacturing sugar, which starts by washing the beetroots, followed by the extraction and then the crystallisation, Japy food-grade pumps are a great aid.
