Past solid handling pump project
Castle Pumps have been helping customers with reliable solid transfer for over 10 years with our large range of high solids pumps.
Read this case study for more information on how we helped a producer of olive oil with a food grade progressive cavity pump. The model's ability to handle large solids meant that the crushed olives and stones present in the olive oil were transferred with ease and without causing any damage to the pump.
