Wash and clean places demands on pumping equipment

Part washing applications are notoriously demanding, as they often use aggressive liquids, high temperatures and high pressures. Using conventional pumps, this would result in bulky installations where the motor's power is not fully utilised. Wash and clean applications in the food processing industry, such as slaughter houses and breweries, place restrictions on the physical size of the pump, as the equipment either has to be installed in a cabinet or fitted on a trolley moved by hand.

Powerful and compact Grundfos single-stage or multi-stage centrifugal pumps for car wash pump systems and washdown pump kits are made entirely from materials designed to withstand even the most aggressive of detergents and solvents and can operate in temperatures up to 180 °C and at pressures up to 40 bar in box washers or tunnel washers.
