The 5 Most In-Demand New Features of Chemical Drum Pumps

By | March 1, 2021

The U.S. has always been a nation of inventors, from Edison’s first lightbulb to the Wright Brothers’ discovery of human flight. But as technology progresses, many of the 21st Century’s inventions are becoming extremely complex. Today, one in every five patents granted in the U.S. is related to chemistry. In fact, that’s a major reason that the U.S. chemical industry is the largest in the world. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, the U.S. chemistry industry saw sales of $770 billion and employed 784,000 workers as of 2012, the last year data was available.

Today, we’re proud to provide a variety of industrial and chemical drum pumps to this thriving industry. And as the chemical industry has progressed, so too have their needs. When a company needs to ensure the safe transfer of neutral, corrosive, viscous or flammable liquids, chemical drum pumps ensure a number of advantages.

Many of these pumps offer a nearly hands-free way to transfer chemicals, helping to ensure the safe handling of dangerous compounds. In the 21st century, a number of new and exciting features have been added to Standard Pump line of products including:

  1. Safety (and Warranties) First: All of our sanitary pumps and chemical drum pumps undergo rigorous safety and performance testing, which is why we can provide the industries only three-year product warranty.

  2. Advanced Metering Systems: Many drum pumps are designed for smaller containers, like 55 gallon drums. However, we also offer metering systems carefully engineered to let you precisely control, measure and dispense the most corrosive chemicals from 55-gallon (200L) drums and even Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC).

  3. Batch Control Systems: Similar to our metering systems, batch control allows you to measure and dispense a predetermined volume of liquids like Sulfuric Acid, Nitric Acid and Hydrochloric Acid.

  4. Viscous Materials: Safely transfer and dispense viscous materials with maximum viscosity of up to 100,000 cps.

  5. Explosion Proof (Electric): These pumps are engineered to transfer flammable and combustible liquids like alcohol, gasoline and ammonia.

For the safe and efficient transfer of chemicals, chemical drum pumps offer a number of solutions perfect for the chemical industry.
