What Type of Pump is Suitable for Food and Beverage Transfer?

From food manufacturing to beverage manufacturing, there are specific types of pumps that are required in these industries. At PumpWorks, we are the leading pump experts in Auckland, and can provide food and beverage pump solutions that can be tailored to specific requirements and needs.

So, what type of pump is suitable for pumping food and beverages?

What Are Food and Beverage Pumps?

Food and beverage pumps, also known as food grade pumps, are what you will need in order to transfer food and beverage during the manufacturing process. In particular, these pumps are designed to be sanitary and hygienic, meeting regulations for food production and food safety. This means that food and beverage pumps are designed in a way that prevents contamination and bacterial growth.

Some key characteristics of food grade pumps include:

  • Stainless steel 
  • FDA or EHEDG certified 
  • Smooth surfaces
  • Easily sterilised 
  • Compatibility with specific food or beverage viscosity
  • All components are approved/made from food-grade materials

Food grade pumps can also be used in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries, perfect for complying with strict hygienic standards.

What Type of Pump is Required for Pumping Food and Beverage?

There are different types of pumps that can be used for food and beverage transfer, such as:

  • Air operated diaphragm pump – various flow rate and discharge pressures, no leaks
  • Centrifugal pump – suitable for large quantities of liquids, high flow rate; best for wine and dairy
  • Drum pump – can transfer thin to low viscous liquids like fruit acids
  • Peristaltic hose pump – ideal for high viscous liquids like dairy and beverages
