Peristaltic Pumps are hygienic pumps as the hose is the only part that comes into contact with the product being pumped. We recommend the PTL Peristaltic Pump for the hygienic applications which can handle solids up to 9mm and are supplied with hoses that are FDA approved.

For products such as bath bombs we can provide a Sanitary Powder Pump. Accessories can also be supplied with many of our pumps such as a Guardian System (pneumatic pump monitoring system) or a Heating Jacket to maintain hot or cold temperatures of your product as required.



Why does the pump need to be a Sanitary Pump?

Any pumps pumping products where the end use is human consumption need to be sanitary because they come into contact with humans. Therefore, any food, pharmaceutical or cosmetic products must be hygienic due to the end goal of these products.

What qualifies a Sanitary Pump?

All Sanitary Pumps must be FDA certified or have EHEDG approval. This means ALL wetted parts of the pump must be FDA approved, not just the mechanical seals. These pumps will all be manufactured from high quality stainless steel for optimum hygiene and typically have a reduced number of parts that are completely solid so that product cannot get trapped in any areas of the pump.
