    Processing a Fruit Called a Choke Cherry

    We are having difficulties handling a food product.

    We are processing a fruit called a choke cherry. It has a pit the same size as a regular cherry but is smaller with a lot less meat to it.

    We have to heat process in a kettle and then move it to a paddle finisher. We need a ??pump,?? auger system as the diaphragm pump we are trying to use now just keeps jamming up.

    Can you help us with some suggestions.

    Have you considered a progressive cavity pump such as Mono?
