We would consider a Atex Rated Air Operated Diaphragm Pump the best choice, AODD pumps are ideal in a flammable distillery environment and are versatile in handling a wide range of hot, cold, thick, thin, clean or solid laden liquids.
Atex Rated Electrically Driven Double Diaphragm Pumps are also available; however, the initial cost of the pump is a lot higher than an AODD.
Why can I not use any pump?
Due to pumping high volume, flammable liquid, the pump you choose for your distillery must be ATEX rated. In addition to this, it’s always best to get the most fitting pump for your needs, to minimise downtime and maximise profit.
