Understanding Heavy Duty Industrial Pumps

Heavy duty process pumps transfer liquid products between system components. Our suppliers design these crucial system components for generating low to high system pressure that moves liquid forward.

How Our Pumps Work

The exact way a pump functions depends on its type. Most pumps, like centrifugal pumps, move lightweight and dense liquids by funneling the material through tubes using a motor. Other pumps, like twin screws, rely on energy generated from movement on the screws.

Features and Benefits of Our Industrial Pumps

For any industry that manufactures liquid for human consumption, sanitation is key. Incorporating pumps made out of high-quality stainless steel into your systems helps. After all, this material can withstand exposure from most cleaning agents and materials without forming dents that harbor bacteria. Many of our products use 316L stainless steel to manufacture the pump because of its strength and resistance to corrosion. In addition to superior material makeup, each of our pump types contain unique features and benefits.

Types of Industrial Pumps - How They Work & Applications

Centrifugal Pumps

Centrifugal pumps possess high flow rate capabilities, which is why they are one of the most popular types of pumps. They rely on movement from a motor to transport large quantities of dense fluids, like petroleum, through liquid passageways. These pumps work well in the food, dairy, beverage, brewery, home and personal care, pharmaceutical, biotech, and chemical industries.

Rotary Lobe Pumps

Rotary lobes are excellent for transporting thick, sticky fluids, like pastes. Liquids move through the interior casing thanks to energy generated by two rotating lobes. These lobes look similar to dull blades and are able to push fluids forward quickly without damaging them. Rotary lobes function well in the food, dairy, beverage, brewery, home and personal care, pharmaceutical, biotech, and chemical industries.

Circumferential Piston Pumps

Circumferential piston pumps best suit low-viscosity liquids. These pumps rely on energy generated by two rotating gears to push liquids forward. They feature a 304 stainless steel gear case on every pump, which prevents rusting, chipping, and peeling. Our manufacturers design these systems for the food, dairy, beverage, brewery, home and personal care, pharmaceutical, biotech, and chemical industries.

Air-Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps

Air-operated double diaphragm pumps are versatile pumps. They can safely handle both abrasive and shear-sensitive liquids. However, these pumps are limited to low-pressure applications. Air-operated double diaphragm pumps feature two interior walls that move back and forth to pump liquids through. Our manufacturers design these systems with the food, dairy, beverage, brewery, home and personal care, pharmaceutical, biotech, and chemical industries in mind.

Twin Screw Pumps

Known as a gentle pump, a twin screw pump carefully handles liquids with low pulsation pumping. Twin screw pumps work by quickly rotating two interior cylindrical shafts, which generates energy that pushes liquids forward. These pumps work well in the food, dairy, beverage, brewery, home and personal care, pharmaceutical, biotech, and chemical industries.

Electric Motor Pumps

Electric motor pumps perform with precision and speed. They feature electric motors that guide liquids through their passageways quickly. These reliable pumps work well in a variety of settings, thanks to their sturdy makeup. You can use these pumps in the home and personal care industries. However, they make especially good additions in food, dairy, beverage, brewery, pharmaceutical, biotech, and chemical facilities because they can withstand harsh cleaning agents and high-pressure washing.

Eccentric Disc Pumps

Many people love eccentric disc pumps for their anti-leakage and low-maintenance qualities. They include a disc and an off-center shaft that both rotate, producing enough energy to push liquids forward. These pumps work well in the food, dairy, beverage, brewery, home and personal care, pharmaceutical, biotech, and chemical industries.

Mixing and Blending Pumps

Mixing and blending pumps feature a high-speed rotor with attached shears. The movement generates energy that propels liquids through passageways. As a side bonus, these machines also blend different liquids together evenly. Mixing and blending pumps function well in the food, dairy, beverage, brewery, home and personal care, pharmaceutical, biotech, and chemical industries.

Drum Pumps

Drum pumps can both distribute and remove low viscosity liquids, like juice or soda. Although these pumps look simplistic, our standard drum pump features a high-tech metering system that ensures accurate performance. Electrically operated drum pumps get their energy from a small motor that connects to a shaft and pumping element. Drum pumps best suit the food, dairy, beverage, brewery, home and personal care, pharmaceutical, biotech, and chemical industries.
