Sanitary Pumps

What Type of Pump Do You Need?

Sanitary CENTRIFUGAL PUMPS

Centrifugal pumps are a relative low price and the most common pump used to transfer low viscosity fluids at a high flow rate and low pressure.
VISCOSITY RANGE 0- 900 CP

Sound familiar? “C114”, “C216”, etc.

Spare parts are interchangeable with the other "C" series pumps like Alfa Laval, Waukesha, Ampco, Topline, and others.

Low cost compared to our competition.

Self-priming pumps are specialized for air and gas contained products which cannot be pumped by general centrifugal pumps. 

"Commonly used as a clean in place (CIP) return pump"

Sanitary POSITIVE DISPLACEMENT PUMP

Is a positive displacement pump the right option for you?

Do you want transfer high viscosity fluids?
Do you want Pumping fluids containing substantial solids, slurries, and pastes?
Does your application require a self-priming suction lift?
Do you need a measured flow or constant pressure at different flow rates?

Positive displacement pumps are used to transfer high viscosity fluids at high pressures and relatively low flows.
Usually selected for their ability to handle fluids with particles and soft solids.
VISCOSITY RANGE up to 1,000,000 CP

Rotary lobes have the ability to handle highly viscous fluids, pastes and handle fluids containing soft solids without causing any damage.

Flexible impellers handle low and high viscosity fluids, gels and pastes and carefully can handle fluids containing hard and soft solids. 

Progressive cavity pumps are used to transfer products of low and high viscosity as well as products containing soft particles.

Is the latest generation "2-in-1" pump, delivering the benefits of both positive displacement pumps and centrifugal pumps.

Save time and cost because pumping and cleaning are processed within a single pump.

Handle low and highly viscous fluids, pastes and fruit particles within a juice.
