In the past, the chemical industry was not nearly as safe as it is now. In order to reduce the inherent danger of producing sometimes volatile and harmful substances, the chemical industry is now subject to a host of regulations intended to control the production process. This has continued to become exceedingly important as the production and consumption of chemicals increases.

Currently, the chemical industry is one of the largest and most essential industries around the globe. The United States is the largest national producer of chemical products. In 2012, America’s chemical output was valued at approximately $770 billion.

Pharmaceuticals, in particular, are directly tied to this industry, and their use continues to increase. More and more individuals are turning to medication to manage or improve their health. To assure that medications are effective and safe for consumption, the manufacturing process must be reliable and carefully regulated.

Ingredients must be contained and transported through mechanical systems to avoid contamination from outside factors and to keep employees safe from hazardous materials. Chemical drum pumps are designed to provide safe and easy transfer for neutral, aggressive, and even flammable liquids. These electric drum pumps are widely used due to their versatility and efficiency in multiple facets of manufacturing.

Another industry that requires similar care during the production process is the food and beverage industry, which has continued rapid growth of late. From 2012 to 2013, the U.S. food and beverage industry’s average sales experienced a 13% increase, leading to a 17% increase in average net profits. In 2013, U.S. retailer’s recorded sales of children’s food and beverages amounted to an estimated $23.2 billion. Even with these massive sales, the market has yet to become saturated; retail sales are projected to reach almost $30 billion by 2018.Chemical drum pumps and sanitary pumps help to increase production in both of these industries, while at the same time help to reduce the possibility of contamination.
