Transferring Corrosive Fluids like Mustard & Vinegar with Food Grade Pumps
The Problem: Difficulty Transferring Corrosive Foods
Mustard and vinegar are two important products people definitely want to buy whether they need mustard for their hot dog or vinegar for their salad dressing. However, there’s a problem when it comes to transferring these materials and that’s the fact they are extremely corrosive and have the capability to quickly degrade stainless steel pumps.
The Solution: FDA Certified Double DIaphragm Pumps
The solution to these material transfer issues is Graco’s Husky AODD pumps, which has FDA certified materials in the fluid cover and manifold. If PTFE or Santoprene diaphragms are used with stainless steel, polypropylene or PTFE seals and ball checks, the unit is FDA approved.
The most common pumps used to transfer this material range from an inch, 1.5 inches or 2-inch polypropylene pump.
When it comes to mustard, AODD pumps are preferred as this material can damage piston pump seals.
