Graco designs and builds a broad array of equipment specifically for sanitary manufacturing. These include applications for personal care products, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and more.
Most of our pumps designed for sanitary applications feature quick knockdown features for cleaning in place operations. Models are FDA-compliant and can be disassembled in five minutes or less. Ease of cleaning is further enhanced with the pump’s smooth, flat surfaces and no recessed areas where bacteria can hide.
Our portable sanitary double diaphragm pumps offer food processors flow rates that are at least 25% greater than many competitive pumps. And higher flow rates give you the flexibility to process more food products, ranging from low to medium viscosity fluids. Additionally, Graco’s class-leading dependable diaphragm pumps offer a wide range of food-grade elastomers including Santoprene, PTFE and overmolded EPDM/PTFE.
Graco’s bin and drum unloaders can evacuate medium to high viscosity products from their original 55-gallon (208 l) drums or 300 gallon bins, without diluting the contents. Each system includes a pump ram with an inflatable seal that securely fits the bin or drum to reach evacuation rates up to 99%. Our drum unloader systems are compatible with both 55-gallon drums, as well as 300-gallon bag-in-bin containers.
Our sanitary drum pumps make it easy to transfer low, medium and high viscosity fluids from drum to drum. And cleaning is simple with a quick knockdown design, which makes your production flow more efficiently during product changeovers. In addition, the hygienic design of our pumps is ideal for most food, beverage and personal care applications including edible oil, juices and concentrates, pharmaceuticals, and personal care production, and fluid transfer in breweries, distilleries and wineries.
