The Types of Pumps We Can Provide You With

With our in-house workshop, we can provide a custom winery pump tailored to your unique requirements. Here is a list of a few pump styles that you might have an interest in:

  • We have centrifugal pumps available. These are ideal for transfers of products that have a low viscosity or low solids content. Centrifugal pumps are standard in almost every winery in the world, and we can provide them in different sizes and speeds to better suit them to your requirements. Our suppliers include CSF Inox, Mencarelli, and Liverani.

  • If you need rubber impeller pumps, we have them. More versatile than the centrifugal pumps, these can handle higher viscosities and liquids with higher solids content. These pumps come reversible and generate excellent flow rates for their size. To top all of that, they are self-priming and will quickly become your pump of choice when coupled with an electronic speed controller. Our suppliers for these include Mencarelli and Liverani.

  • We also sell peristaltic pumps. These gentle pumps utilise a rubber hose progressively squashed by a roller to squeeze product through. They can easily handle solids and can achieve high pressures. Peristaltic pumps are one of the few pumps capable of running dry without causing any problems. Our suppliers for these are CME.

  • Our helical screw pumps are excellent, providing you with several features. They self-prime, they can handle high pressure, and are positive displacement pumps. These are an excellent choice for transferring products such as must or lees.   Our supplier for these is CSF Inox.
