Materials Used for Sanitary Pumps
Sanitary pumps have a wide variety of uses in all areas of life. They are designed for basic applications such as applications requiring clean, sterile processing. The most common use of these sanitary pumps has been observed in the field are in the food industries, dairy companies, pharmaceutical processes, the medical sector and other segments of chemical application. People prefer pumps with some general features like easy cleaning, polished and crevice-free contact surfaces. Moreover, there are different types of pump available on the market.
Generally, the sanitary pump body is made of the material such as metal or plastic. These metals are widely used to make sanitary pumps such as bronze, brass, copper, ductile iron, steel, stainless steel or cast iron. While the plastic choices consist of PVC and CPVC, sanitary pump actuation are variable with different types such as pneumatic, electric, hydraulic as well as manual. The most common connections include socket-weld, butt-weld, threaded, grooved end, thrust, flange, seamless flange and mechanical seal.
The most important thing to keep in mind when selecting the sanitary pumps should include working pressure, diameter, and operating temperature. The pressure level in which the pump must operate is known as the pump operating pressure, while the diameter is measured just opposite the inlet or outlet port of the pump. By mentioning operating temperature, we mean the extent of the required operating ambient temperature. Materials that can be managed and controlled by sanitary products include liquids, gases, and liquids containing suspended solids. This is the temperature of the material against which the pump can withstand and function properly. In fact, the operation of the system depends on the transportation of the media; it is not concerned with the ambient or operating temperature just outside the system.
