Circumferential Piston Pumps
Often confused with rotary lobe pumps, the circumferential piston pump (or rotary piston pump) uses special ‘sliding metal’ non-galling alloy rotors to offer strong self-priming capabilities and gentle handling of shear-sensitive fluids and slurries.
Circumferential piston pumps (or rotary piston pumps) are food grade industrial pumps and feature a stainless steel 316 body with rotors constructed from a non-galling “808” stainless alloy aka ‘the metal that slides’. The close-clearance operation of the rotors is critical to the performance of the pump and allows gentle handling of high viscosity, shear-sensitive fluids. We use these pumps for pumping butter & fats, fondants, icing, concentrated pastes, fruit concentrates, wholetail scampi and other fragile or high viscosity materials.VIEW CIRCUMFERENTIAL PISTON PUMPS
Drum, Barrel & IBC Pumps
There is no better way to empty a drum than by using a drum pump!
Commonly regarded simply as a drum (or IBC) length tube and powered by an electric or pneumatic motor, we offer these and much more! Our drum pump solutions cater for all fluids and suit all shapes and sizes of containers. We even offer sophisticated and powerful drum unloading systems that pump non-flowing products such as petroleum jelly, toothpaste, mascara or concentrated tomato paste.VIEW DRUM PUMPS
Hygienic, Food Grade or Industrial pumps?
Some of the pump types on this page are commonly used in hygienic industry transfer duties and are accepted as being ‘food grade’ pumps as they are constructed from food grade FDA compliant contact materials – typically 316 Stainless Steel with food grade O-rings / gaskets / elastomers.
Other pump designs can be classed as being fully hygienic and are certified to industry standards for hygiene and cleanliness such as EHEDG, 3A and / or FDA.
If you are in any doubt about the suitability of any pump for your particular requirements, please ask us and we can guide you to the food grade, hygienic or industrial pumps that suit your duties.CONTACT US TODAY
