Companies producing sodas, beers, teas, juices, coffees, and more all rely on numerous sanitary pumps for precision fluid transfer throughout their multi-stage production process. Sanitary centrifugal pumps are the most common kinetic energy pump, used in nearly all beverage production applications. These pumps work to move liquids in a radial or axial configuration, through the use of a motor and rotary impeller blades. Converting kinetic energy into hydrodynamic energy, the centrifugal pump is one of the most efficient sanitary pumps for small-to-large head pressure applications. The strength of the pump can be altered by adding faster, larger, or more impellers to the system, depending on the viscosity of the media and flow rates you need to achieve. The three main types of Centrifugal pumps are single-stage, two-stage, and multi-stage, with single-stage being ideal for low head pressure applications, two-stage being ideal for medium head pressure applications, and multi-stage being best for achieving the highest head pressure ratings. Liquids used in centrifugal pumps must be under 1,000 cps fluid viscosity. Some of the most common liquid medias used include water, syrups for sweetening, juices, and concentrates.

Beyond the three main types of centrifugal pumps, Lincoln Suppliers can configure your centrifugal pump to best fit the exact media and flow rates you are wishing to achieve. Things like the impeller blade design, the speed of the impeller blades, and the suction rate can be dialed-in to your exact needs.
