Certa applications in the food and beverage industryBeverages

Handling fruit juice concentrates with high viscosity can make pumping slow and prone to cavitation. This is especially true if the temperature drops below 0°C, at which point viscosity will make a step increase. 

When viscosity increases, the maximum running speed of a lobe or circumferential piston pump needs to be reduced considerably to avoid cavitation, so reducing the achievable flow rate. Additionally, power consumption drastically increases as the rotors cut through the thicker fluid.

With Certa, changing to a higher viscosity product has negligible impact on the flow rate or power required. For example, increasing viscosity from 20,000 cP to 200,000 cP nominally increases the viscous horsepower (VHP) by around 0.1 to 0.3VHP (0.22 kW).


With demand for fresh bakery products rising globally, bakers are seeking improvements in processing everything from dough and batter, to confectionery fillings and frostings. Competition is fierce and product quality becomes a vital element of sales success.

Viscosities can register in the thousands, or even millions of centipoise, often requiring costly oversizing of lobe and circumferential piston pumps to handle the high viscosity and reduce shear. 

Dairy Industry

In the cost conscious dairy sector, finding ways to reduce costs is a major challenge and one which the Certa pump easily solves. Its outstanding gentle pump principle allows customers to handle their delicate products with the care they deserve.

The Certa pump series has full EHEDG Type EL Aseptic Class I certification which allows usage within aseptic processes without the need for additional certification.

Handling particulates and soft solids

When inclusions such as soft fruit, diced vegetables,cooked pulses or meat are present, the Certa pump handles these soft solids without blockages and without causing damage to the ingredients. 


Certa - the cleanest pump you will ever need

Engineers in food and beverage plants are frequently faced with pumping high viscosity products ranging from frozen orange juice, deli salads and bakery produce, to cheese curd and savoury pie fillings. Certa meets the highest standards in hygiene and cleanability combined with improving process efficiency and minimising total cost of ownership.

Sinusoidal pumping animation

The MasoSine Certa pump is a highly reliable and economical Positive Displacement Pump for food and beverage applications. Our exclusive sinusoidal rotor overcomes the limitations of conventional rotary lobe pumps to produce powerful suction with low shear, low pulsation, and gentle handling…all with simple and fast maintenance and 3-A certification.  
MasoSine engineers have overcome the limitations of conventional rotary lobe pumps to create one of the most efficient and reliable positive displacement pumps available.

MasoSine's exclusive single shaft and single sinusoidal rotor are the centerpieces of an innovative, simple design. With a single shaft and rotor, there is no need for the complex timing gears and multiple seals associated with conventional rotary lobe pumps. One rotor, one shaft and one seal equate to simple and economic maintenance.

Highly reliable MasoSine positive displacement pumps are the result of over 25 years of engineering innovation and product development. Customers benefit from less waste and faster processing with low shear, high suction, low pulsation, gentle handling of whole foods or highly viscous products, and simple economical cleaning and maintenance.

Maintenance takes minutes and can be performed in-place by a line operative. Replace off-the-shelf wear components to restore to “new pump” performance.

The video shows the MasoSine Certa pumps’ ability to clean in place even the toughest substances. For the purposes of this demonstration, mustard has been pumped and allowed to dry. Just cold water without a cleaning agent is then run through the pump, removing all traces of the mustard with ease.
