At the forefront of technology. Stainless steel screw pumps and "plastic" screw pumps.

In a world where fake news are increasingly popular, it is curious to hear and see that someone does everything to spread misinformation. Fbm has always made its own the karma of personalization and research and development, leaving out the marketing sector, in which some are magicians. But to see that marketing gets to defame and distort technology deserves at least one post on our blog. What we are unveiling on the chocolate transport system, should be reserved and not published as part of the technology and experience of Fbm, but we are forefront enough to be able to disclose some little secrets to everyone. Fbm has produced stainless steel screw pumps from 1977 to 1999. Well, the stainless steel screw pumps that we used forty years ago are still used by marketing magicians... Then, in 1999, Fbm discovered that steel, as conductor, created some problems with some particular chocolates and that the weldings necessary for its realization could suffer from tears and oxidations transferable to the chocolate. Since then we have wrapped the steel with a special high-strength resin. We stopped taking a round and welding a spiral that could be desoldered but we took a full/core and, after returning it, we wrapped it with this high density resin. Bearing this in mind, it is enough to weigh (yes, the simplest things are always the result of truth!) a Fbm screw pump and any other screw pump and wonder why the "plastic" of Fbm weighs more than steel. So, we understand that often those who experience are not understood by those who do not, but highlight a system that we have abandoned twenty years ago as a better one that has been its development, is a mix of ignorance and presumption that perhaps is time to bring out.
