Artisan, craft food companies and breweries are increasing in dominance. Their operations are very hands-on with hand mixing of ingredients and manual cleaning of equipment. Special additives, ingredients and other items need to be added manually from bulk containers.
There are only a few dispensing choices available.
Lift and pour directly from the container, lift and lay the container on its side and insert a tap, or install a drum pump.
The safest, most reliable and economical method is a drum pump which has the following features:
- Is food safe and meets applicable compliance standards.
- Can be cleaned.
- Allows the container to stay upright. Upright pumping means that the container is not on its side and susceptible to leakage.
- Reliability and tolerance to acid and alkali ingredients.
- Differentiation system to ensure that the pump is used for its designated purpose and there is no risk of cross contamination.
Ezi-action® Drumpumps are being used with confidence around the world in the food industry because they are food safe, they are reliable and they can be cleaned. Further they are very economical because they give years of use and don't leak. Ezi-action® Drumpumps provide upright pumping from the base of the bulk container meaning not only is there no wastage of the liquid product but also those handling the bulk containers are less at risk from work injuries associated with repetitive bending or lifting heavy containers.
