Beauty and Personal Care

High-quality pumps are essential in the beauty and personal care industry, especially with requirements to comply with regulations and sanitary accreditations. At UHT, we embrace these challenges and provide solutions with our customers' specific challenges in mind.

Product components can be challenging to store and transport in the personal care and cosmetics industry. Many are of particularly high viscosity and often include abrasive additives. The selection of high-quality equipment is thus essential, especially with the requirement to comply with FDA regulations and 3A & EHEDG hygienic accreditations.

Often in this industry product degradation is a challenge. These customers prefer pumps that offer gentle product treatment and don’t alter the physical properties of the media being pumped. For example, the Standard Pump Progressive Cavity Drum Pump line provides a good solution for products with a viscosity under 100,000 cps.
