Pump Types for Molasses
Molasses is the residue left after the crystallisation of sucrose. It is relatively little used in confectionery apart from in the manufacture of liquorice, which is its largest use, and in making treacle toffee. In this product the treacle adds colour and flavour. The definition of treacle in some dictionaries is sufficiently wide to include golden syrup, however in this work treacle means a black syrup made by diluting molasses.
By Rum , February 22, in Equipment. We use a positive displacement pump currently. It works but isn't ideal. It tends to get quite hot. I was thinking that a "peanut butter pump" might do the job better. An air diaphragm pump. Air diaphragm pump works great, but you need a pretty good size, which will vary according to how much molasses you need to pump. In general, viscous products do best with high vacuum and high pressure. Flexible impeller pumps are a good middle-of-the-road solution with some caveats. They're not perfect, but hard to beat for the price.
