Sanitary Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps
(AODD Pumps)

Graco's SaniForce™Sanitary Air-Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps (AODD's) have flow rates up to 150 gpm (568 lpm) and are best suited for low to medium viscosity materials. All models are FDA-compliant and meet the CFR Title 21. Graco's overmolded diaphragms virtually eliminate the risk of harboring bacteria, improve wear and are easy to clean. The air valves have a three-way pilot valve for true non-sticking operation, are externally serviceable and have fewer moving parts. 3A and EHEDG certifications are available. More Info
Sanitary Piston Pumps

Graco's SaniForce™ Sanitary Piston Pumps have pressure ratios up to 12:1 and are ideal for low to medium viscosity materials. The new air motors improve serviceability, increase efficiency and have a lower cost of ownership. The quick knockdown lowers are made with 300 series stainless steel, designed for fast and easy cleaning and are available in either double ball or priming piston designs. More Info
Sanitary Drum & Bin Unloaders

Graco SaniForce™ Sanitary Drum Unloaders can evacuate medium to high viscosity products from their original 55-gallon (208 l) containers, without diluting the material. The inflatable ram plate seal minimizes leakage, allows for faster change-out of drums and delivers a 99% evacuation rate. Additional features include a one size follower plate and seal to accommodate straight-sided and tapered drums, a liner guard to prevent bags from entering the pump and sanitary flange clamps for quick disassembly. More Info
Sanitary Bin Evacuation Systems

Graco's SaniForce™ Sanitary Bin Evacuation Systems™ (BES) eliminate manual scooping and bin dumping by unloading materials efficiently from 300-gallon (1135.6 l) "bag-in-bin" containers. Graco's BES can achieve flow rates up to 100 gpm (400 lpm) on medium to high viscosity products. The unique floating ram plate removes the need for exact positioning of bins under the ram plate and the inflatable wiper creates a tight seal preventing contaminants from entering the container. Available with diaphragm or piston pumps. More Info

Flotronic One-Nut AODD Pumps: H Series
3-A Certified Pumps for Sanitary Product Transfer


When hygiene is the priority, there's no better pump than the Flotronic Pump H Series.

Designed to meet stringent 3-A sanitary standards, the H Series offers tremendous benefits for the food, beverage, pharmaceutical industries and any environment or process where maintaining product integrity is paramount.

High quality materials throughout
3-A sanitary standards require that all materials are acceptable for product and non-product contact. They also ensure that performance criteria critical to accepted methods of cleaning are being met. This means that H Series parts and raw materials are of the highest quality wiht their provenance duly certified. Product contact areas are either PTFE or 316L stainless steel, with stainless product contact areas polished to 32 uin Ra or better. Cleanability is further enhanced by the H Series electro-polished overall finish.

Cleaning couldn't be easier
This latest addition to the Flotronic range has been designed to meet the high standards demanded by 3-A, which include ease of cleaning for all product-contact and non-product contact parts. H Series pumps can be thoroughly cleaned in place (CIP), with a support stand allowing rotation of the pump for easy and effective media draining critical to the pump's design. Inversion of the pump ensures that the check-ball valves 'lift' allowing liquid to drain from the inverted delivery nozzle - a process which can happen in line if required and with the suction and delivery pipes still attached. The innovative, easy-maintenance, ONE-NUT design for which Flowtronic is renowned remains, allowing pump maintenance in a matter of minutes.

This pump can be cleaned by flushing with a suitable CIP fluid dependent upon the application and compatibility with the pump wetted components.

Rupture detection system
Operator peace of mind is naturally critical in environments where product contamination is to be avoided at all costs. That's why all H Series pumps have an integral diaphragm rupture detection system. This shuts down the pump should a diaphragm fail, so product is not compromised.

Connections
All H Series pumps are available with the option of BS, DIN or ISO hygienic connections. Click Here to Request a Quote or More Information

Flotronic Diaphragm Piping Pulsation Dampeners

Flotronic Diaphram Pulsation Dampeners Pulsation Dampeners reduce stress and optimize flow

Use of Air Operated Diaphragm pumps or other styles of pumps, which produce a pulsed flow, can create vibration in the delivery pipe work. Flotronic's piping pulsation dampener fitted in any conforming position in a pipe system will eliminate up to 95% of pulsation, thus reducing vibration and all associated problems.

    Benefits of removing pulsation:
  • Reduces vibration and shake from pipe work
  • Reduces stress on pipe work joints and support brackets
  • Reduces the number of support brackets required
  • Allows more accurate readings when pumping through mass flow meters & other instruments
  • Increases safety by reducing pressure surges
Unique design eliminates the need for recharging
Flotronic pulsation dampener units differ from other pulsation dampener designs in that they utilise a constant air supply to maintain a 'live loaded' diaphragm. By using standard factory air that is regulated to an optimum pressure - relative to dampener position - all the problems associated with recharging are eliminated.

Diaphragm rupture protection
Flotrontic have a proven Diaphragm Protection System that can be incoporated into the design. This system utilises a secondary diaphragm to protect against leakage in the event of a primary diaphragm failure, thus improving the integrity for hazardous chemical applications. The inclusion of a secondary diaphragm allows the dampener unit to be fitted with an alarm or other leak detection device.

    Materials:
  • Aluminium PVC Polypropylene PVDF
  • PTFE (Teflon)
  • 304 Stainless Steel 316 Stainless Steel Hastelloy® (and other exotic metals)
  • Anti-Static grade plastics
Sizes and pipework connections
Available in all sizes 1/2" - 3" with any screwed or flange connection, including BSP, NPT, ANSI, DIN, RJT, IDF and more!

Virgin PTFE and other materials
Flotronic developed the one-piece, bonded, virgin PTFE diaphragm over a 15-year period and it has been well proven in our range of pumps. This long life diaphragm is utilised in the range to ensure total reliability with a wide range of pumped media whlist operating on a " short stroke " basis. Diaphragms are available in a range of other materials including: Nitrile, Viton®, EPDM, food grade Elastomers
