Industrial barrel pumps

There are plenty of scenarios that require the movement or transfer of different types of liquid, whether the substance is for human consumption like water, or if the fluid is a chemical or oil for industrial or automotive purposes. Whatever the case may be, great care should be taken in the transportation of these substances, for different reasons, but that boil down to the same main concern. That concern is the safety of human beings, directly or indirectly.

The direct and indirect impact of safe transportation

Consider first of all the transportation of water or other consumable liquids, like beer. These types of liquids often need to be transported between different large containers, or from place to place for distribution purposes. The main point of interest is often the speed and efficiency of the transport, but these factors will end up mattering very little if the water or other liquid gets contaminated in some way. If anything makes its way into the containers or the industrial drum pumps that are often used for transferring purposes, or if these elements are not regularly cleaned, the danger of serving harmful substances to people becomes too high to risk distribution of the product, costing the company time and money. Aside from those dangers, think about the transportation of corrosive chemicals that, if spilled, could pose a threat to the environment, which would work its way back to being harmful to human beings.

The costs of the business

Water technology exports have been estimated at a worth of $2.7 billion. In the span of one year, the average sales of the food and beverage industry within the United States grew by 13%, and the average net profits increased by 17%. Just the soft drink industry on its own generates about $60 billion in sales every year. There is certainly money to be made in this business, and money at stake at every turn, or more accurately at every transfer. There is great care and maintenance that must go into every single aspect of the process, from storage to transportation to distribution. With strict health codes, standards and regulations, there is not much room for error.

The role of industrial drum pumps and AODD pumps in safe containment

There are many different types of pumps and systems that are used to siphon different substances from one container to another, from industrial drum pumps to the larger air-operated double diaphragm pumps, or AODD pumps. Larger barrel pumps can be used for substances that are a bit thicker than water but still have a low level of viscosity, like detergent or fuels. Industrial drum pumps are vital in simplifying the process of moving consumable liquids or light oils and other automotive fluids from barrels. Typically these drum pumps are ideal for removing liquids from containers as small as that of five gallon capacity, and as much as 55 gallons. You can find a variety of different types, whether you are looking for a hand-operated pump, or one that runs on battery or is electric.

Building a better tomorrow

With the advancements that we have made in technology, and the rate at which those advancements continue suggesting that we have much more to see before the collective human imagination is tapped out of ideas, industry will continue to boom. However we must be much more careful than we have been in the past to maintain the health of the earth, as it will ultimately determine the overall health of mankind as well. If we can continue to grow and build in a way that continues to advance us and progressively propel us forward into new, exciting discoveries that could potentially change life as we know it, but do so hand in hand with the revival of natural resources, then there is virtually no limit to what we can do.
