Precision-engineered hygienic pumps, AODD pumps, drum pumps and more, from across our Unibloc, Flotronic and Hygenitec brands. All UHT hygienic pump products are built with the highest quality construction for proven reliability in the most demanding environments.
A completely hygienic, easy-to-clean pump is critical for pharmaceutical, biotech, and cannabis oil (CBD) applications. Our patented LABTOP pump series is simple and efficient with its “plug and go” design. This mobile solution is the perfect hygienic pump for filtration, chromatography, pilot applications, R&D and more.
EODD pumps combine the advantages of an air-operated double diaphragm pump (AODD) and the energy efficiency of an electric motor. EODD pumps can operate against a closed valve, run dry and produce very little noise. Additionally, the pumps can operate in a “low pulsation” mode.
Our hygienic range of diaphragm pumps offers a versatile and robust answer to your liquid transfer needs. These pumps are fully drainable, machined from solid materials of stainless steel or Hastelloy® and are perfect for hygienic applications.
WHAT IS A SANITARY POSITIVE DISPLACEMENT PUMP?
A sanitary positive displacement (PD) pump moves fluid by repeatedly enclosing a fixed volume and moving it mechanically through the system. The pumping action is cyclic and can be driven by pistons, screws, gears, rollers, diaphragms, or vanes.
Although there are quite a few pump options, the majority can be placed into two categories: reciprocating and rotary.
A Reciprocating Positive Displacement pump works by the cyclical strokes of either a piston, plunger, or diaphragm. Rotary positive displacement pumps use the continuous motion of gears to move fluids, rather than the backwards and forwards motion of reciprocating pumps. The rotating element develops a liquid seal with the pump casing and creates suction at the pump inlet. Fluid is drawn into the pump and then enclosed within the teeth of its rotating cogs or gears and transferred to the discharge. The simplest example of a rotary positive displacement pump is the gear pump.
