Positive Displacement Pumps

Transfer both liquids and solids at lower flow rates

Ferguson Industrial offers customers across the Food & Beverage industry a premium selection of both positive displacement pumps and spare parts, as well as centrifugal pumps and spare parts. Contrary to centrifugal pumps, positive displacement pumps move contents by first trapping a certain amount. Then, it forces the product into the discharge pipe. As a result, these sanitary process pumps provide a constant flow regardless of the pressure. That is why they are suitable for processes that require precise flow control.

Here are a few attributes of positive displacement pumps.

  • They use rotating gears or pistons to transfer the product at lower flow rates than centrifugal pumps, meaning they can handle thick liquids like chocolate, butter, and syrup.
  • The texture of a product is not a concern when using a positive displacement pump since it can move both liquids and solids.
  • Better suited for variations in pressure and viscosity.
  • Temperature range: anything from frozen solid products up to 482°F (250°C).
  • Positive displacement pumps can easily be moved throughout your facility using one of our premium yet, cost-effective sanitary pump carts.

Using the correct sanitary pump for your specific application is crucial. Call Ferguson Industrial at 1-866-398-5658 today and we will help save you time and money, as well as enhance operational efficiency and safety.
