The place to find all Fristam Pumps USA published material: brochures, maintenance manuals, engineering drawings, etc.
The first Fristam stainless steel pump was manufactured in 1931 – from the very start in compliance with the individual requirements of our customers. Since then the success of Fristam has been based on three principles: Quality, Flexibility and Innovation.

A prevailing method to incorporate gums is to slowly add them into a 2,000 gallon batch tank of liquid by hand, mix it using an in-tank impeller, and recirculate. While this system was able to produce the shake base, there was too much waste. A large amount of product clumping needed to be filtered out. In addition to clumps of stabilizer being thrown out, there was also product sticking to the sides of the batch tank. Both instances of waste led to additional stabilizer needing to be added to each batch to achieve the desired viscosity, driving up ingredient costs. The processor decided that this was unacceptable and needed a more efficient mixing solution.
In researching several mixing technologies, they identified two key needs: getting a steady feed of the stabilizer into the liquid and mixing it thoroughly. During their search, they discovered Fristam’s Powder Mixer. The Powder Mixer features a funnel, full-port valve, and suction pump combination for smooth, controllable solids induction. Once inducted, the premix is forced through an in-line blender, meaning all of it must pass between spinning shearing teeth, not allowing any of the mix to remain in clumps.
The processor was very pleased with the Powder Mixer’s ability to mix their stabilizer into the shake base, quickly and efficiently on the first pass. They saw no more wasted ingredients in their batches and the end product was the perfect consistency. By installing the Powder Mixer, the amount of stabilizer needed per batch was reduced by over five percent, saving the processor an estimated $32,000 per year.
