Thorite's now the place to go for Graco pumps

Monday 14th July 2014

The rugged range of Graco process pumps is now available from Thorite, the UK's biggest independent distributor of fluid power products and process systems. Graco's Process Division specialises in air-operated diaphragm pumps for the food, chemicals and pharmaceuticals processing industries, and features models capable of efficiently moving substances as diverse as acids or glue, while for general industry use positive displacement utility pumps are ideal for small applications.

However, the main reason Graco pumps provide the motive power for so many processing applications relates to their huge range of products targeted at specific product handling functions. This is clearly demonstrated in Graco's Hygienic Pumps Division in food processing for example, where the Graco Saniforce range includes air-operated double diaphragm pumps, piston transfer pumps, drum unloaders, bin evacuation systems (BES) and high pressure cleaning packages.

These make up complete portfolios of rugged equipment designed for individual food products including: Meat and Poultry, Ice Cream variegates, Caramels and peanut butter, Tomato paste, Condiments, Dips and dressings, Jams and Jellies, Juice concentrates and purees, Cultured dairy variegate and Wine production.

Saniforce offers a similar product range for manufacturers of personal care creams and cosmetics, all designed for maximum performance - the Saniforce 12:1 piston pump features flow rates of up to 8.5 gpm (32 lpm) and up to 1,000,000 cps when mounted on a drum or bin unloader system. Product highlights include quick knockdown lowers made from 300 Series stainless steel for fast cleaning and long lasting durability, easily removable FDA-compliant shroud to access and clean the modular air valve for reduced downtime and the most advanced air motor on the market.

The availability of Graco pumping technology significantly extends Thorite's unparalleled expertise in providing the pick of the world's processing equipment for UK users, backed by expert personnel and engineering support. Mike Eason, Thorite's Process and Vacuum Manager, was formerly Graco's Business Development Specialist for Processing Industries in the UK & Ireland and has a wealth of applications experience he's happy to share with customers. Thorite's regional network of 10 Sales and Service Centres located throughout Yorkshire, Lancashire, the North East and West Midlands, can order a wide variety of pumps from stock for next day delivery.
