what do apv manufacture

These industrial solutions combine the extensive array of heat exchangers, pumps, homogenizers and valves. 


The APV DW range of rotary positive displacement pumps is designed for a variety of hygienic and industrial applications. The pulse-free pumping action of the DW pump minimizes damage to particulates within the product.Thermal jackets can be fitted to facilitate the heating or cooling of the pump chamber before product entry. Rectangular inlets are available to improve inlet conditions for high viscosity fluidsand pressure relief valves can be provided to avoid over pressurization of th e pump.

The APV R Series pump line meets 3-A COP requirements and are known for easy disassembly and clean up equaling low maintenance costs. The R Series pumps are operating in thousands of applications in the food,beverage, brewing, meat, bakery, chemical and related industries and arealso known all over the world for their rugged, long-lasting design and efficient performance. 


The PUMA+ Range comprises 3 basic pump configurations offering heads up to 78 m, flow rates up to 135 m3/h, and system pressures up to 16 bar. The Puma Range is widely used in the brewery, distillery, food and dairy industries.

APV  W+ pumps ensure maximum efficiency and reduce noise and vibration levels to an absolute minimum. The W+ series consists of 17 standard models with pressure and flow capacities from 34 l/min to 1624 l/min and differential heads of up to 150 metres.The W+ pump and Ws+ are based on a unique hydraulic design that combines maximum efficiency with the highest sanitary standards. A critical design feature of the W+ is the APV brand patented spiral volute, which is positioned in the back plate of the pump. The volute increases efficiency and reduces turbulence,ensuring gentle product handling. 


With the APV product portfolio, SPX Flow offer a wide range of homogenisers covering laboratory applications, pilot plant machines through to large scale production homogenisers. Their Rannie and Gaulin brands have been synonymous with homogenisation for 100 years - are relied upon by the world's leading manufacturers across the Dairy, Food & Beverage, Pharmaceutical, Healthcare, chemical and the Biotech sectors. The Rannie and Gaulin technologies offer a large selection of features, build options, materials and multiple homogenising valve technologies. Combined this with extensive experience across all industries, and SPX Flow has the ability to deliver customised homogenisers specific to the customer's application. All APV homogenisers are 3A approved, comply with EN1935:2004 and are CE marked. If required, they can be supplied with FDA approved packing.


APV’s laboratory homogenisers are ideal for researching new products and improving existing ones. The results of trials will give the required mean particle size and uniform distribution needed for product development. Trials conducted on APV’s laboratory homogenisers are fully reproducible for emulsions, dispersions and cell disruptions and can be applied to full-scale production.


Rannie homogenisers have an extensive range of build options available to them, ensuring a solution tailored for each specific application. Gaulin developed the first homogeniser in 1900 and introduced it at the World’s fair in Paris. Since then Gaulin machines have been market leaders for innovative homogenisation technologies. In 1972 APV, an SPX Flow brand, acquired Gaulin.
