Types and Working Mechanism of Industrial Pumps

Sanitation is key to the industries manufacturing liquid, slurries, or solutions for human consumption. The process must be as per the legal cleanliness standards or the company’s regulations. Usually, onsite inspections from FDA representatives are mandatory to ensure that the regulatory requirements are fulfilled.

Material is the key in terms of sanitation

  • Pumps are made from high-quality stainless-steel material.
  • Stainless steel material can handle the contact of many cleaning agents.
  • No dents get formed, so the concern about harboring bacteria gets eliminated.
  • The pumps are designed from 316L stainless steel material, which is strong and corrosion-resistant.

The industries like beverage, food, meat, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic make use of high-quality sanitary pumps. They even partner with companies like Flowertrend to get first-rate aftermarket replacement parts for their industrial pumps.

Industrial pumps types and work

Centrifugal pumps

It has great flow rate capabilities, so is a popular type. Motor movement transports the bulk of dense fluid like milk through liquid passageways.

Rotary lobe pumps

Best pumps to transport sticky and thick fluids [pastes]. Two rotating lobes generate the energy and push the paste via interior casing. The lobes are like dull blades that are designed to push the thick paste forwards with speed.

Circumferential piston pumps

This type is great for transporting low-viscosity liquids. Two rotating gears are responsible to push the low-viscosity liquid forward. The gear case is designed from 304 stainless steel material, which prevents the peeling, chipping, and rusting.

Air-operated double diaphragm pump

These pumps are versatile. They can safely deal with shear-sensitive and coarse liquids. The pump has two interior walls, which move forward and backward to push liquid through. The limitation of this pump is that it can only be applied in low-pressure conditions.

Twin-screw pump

A gentle pump that carefully handles the pumping of liquid with low pulsation. It has two cylindrical shafts inside that rotates quickly to create energy and push liquid forward.

Electric motor pump

Electric motors guide the liquid through a passageway with speed and precision. Their structure and arrangement are robust, so they work fine in a different environment. They can withstand high-pressure washing and harsh cleaning agents, so they are preferred a lot in the personal care and home industries.

Eccentric disc pump

An off-center shaft and disc rotate together to produce the energy needed to transport the liquids. People find eccentric disc pumps appealing because of its low maintenance and anti-leakage features.

Mixing & blending pumps

A high-speed rotor has shears attached, which moves to produce the energy to propel liquids forward. Moreover, different liquids can be blend together evenly during the transport process.

Drum pumps

The pump looks simple with a small motor connected to a pumping element and shaft moves to generate energy. The pump even features an advanced technology metering system to ensure accurate performance.
