There are many different methods of pumping product. Choosing the right pump for your application will improve product quality, increase process efficiency and maximize productivity. Galick Process and Packaging Solutions carries a wide variety of sanitary process pumps including Centrifugal, Rotary Lobe, Diaphragm, Sine, Piston and many more. GPPS is here to help you choose the right pump for your application!
Centrifugal Pumps are one of the most commonly used pumps for the transfer of fluids. A Centrifugal Pump is a pump that uses a rotating impeller to move water or other fluids by using centrifugal force. Centrifugal Pumps are best suited for liquids with a relatively low viscosity.
A Rotary Lobe Pump is a positive displacement pump that generates its pumping action by the counter rotation of two pumping elements (rotors) within a chamber. Rotary Lobe Pumps are a good choice for liquids with a high viscosity that may or may not have particulates.
A Diaphragm Pump is a positive displacement pump which utilizes two flexible diaphragms that reciprocate back and forth to move materials from the suction side to the discharge side of the pump. Diaphragm Pumps are suitable for low or high viscosity fluids. They are also better for handling products that require low flow accuracy, shear sensitivity, or careful temperature regulation.
A Sine Pump is a positive displacement pump which utilizes a sinusoidal rotor that creates four separate and symmetrical pumping chambers within the pump. The up and down action of the turning rotor gently transfers product from the inlet to the outlet. Sine pumping delivers constant volumetric displacement while eliminating product compression and minimizing damage to large particles or shear sensitive products.
