Sanitary Drum Pump–To Comply with Food and Beverage Sanitation Standards

Barrel pump electric

The food and beverage industry in the United States adheres to rigid health and safety codes. One of the ways this is accomplished is through the use of industry-specific equipment that complies with food sanitation and safety standards. A sanitary drum pump, which is used to temporarily store and dispense a variety of food substances, is just one piece of equipment that aids in fulfilling these goals.

The sanitary drum pump is specifically utilized within the food and beverage industry. Drum pumps are used with 50-to-55-gallon barrels, and can be operated with either an electric or air motor.

When brewing craft beers, for example, a sanitary drum pump can be used to add flavoring. It can also be used to add flavoring to soft drinks and other beverages.

Sanitary pumps are also used to dispense mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, relish, and other condiments. Depending on company size, the number of clients served, distribution, and other considerations, having added pumps is something to consider for high volume services. Furthermore, they arrive already assembled and can be used right out of the box.

One of the other benefits of polished stainless steel sanitary pumps is the ease with which they can be cleaned. Because these drum pumps are purposefully designed for disassembly, this expedites the cleaning process. This is one of several benefits for workplace efficiency.

A drum pump can also make it easier to transfer liquids and other food products from 50-to-55-gallon drums or barrels. This, in addition to the ease of cleaning, can also increase workplace productivity and streamline workflow. With increased productivity, it generally follows that there will be an increase in profits.

When considering profits, in both 2012 and 2013, the U.S. food and beverage industry had a 13% increase in sales. The food and beverage industry’s average net profits also increased by 17%.

To provide a more specific example, annual sales for the soft drink industry are approximately $60 billion. In 2013, for example, and for children’s food and beverages alone, retailers reported sales of around $23.2 billion. Furthermore, projected retail sales for this industry niche are expected to be $30 billion by 2018.

While he has a taste for the extreme, most of his restaurant’s top sellers are much more down-to-earth, regularly featuring mushrooms gathered from the slopes of the Cascades, and fresh wild-caught seafood from the Oregon coast. Inspired by trends in Portland, his latest restaurant offers the ultimate chef’s table: dinner begins in the morning at his island collective farm, and 4 lucky guests every week get to follow the food, literally, from the field to the plate! Francis is a firm believer that you are what you eat — do you really want to be a chemistry set?
