A large bakery company in Mexico recently contacted ARO in search of reliable pumps to transfer cornmeal from bags to chutes.
Their vacuum pump system required frequent, expensive maintenance and presented a potential hazard due to overheating. Could the ARO powder pump handle such a big, dusty job?
Vacuum pumps are commonly used in the commercial baking process, but they are very sensitive to overload. Buildup in the filters causes the pumps to overheat, resulting in frequent downtime and wasted raw materials. Plus, maintenance and replacement of the vacuum pump system is expensive.
The bakery company was ready for a new solution. They reached out to a local ARO distributor to try our powder pumps.
The ARO 2" powder pump was able to transfer more than 120 kg (nearly 265 lbs) of cornmeal within 10 minutes!
Not only did the ARO pump outperform the vacuum pump, the savings were obvious. Two ARO powder pumps cost less than the entire vacuum pump system and mechanical gear systems previously installed.
More advantages for the bakery company included:
The bakery company had prior experience with ARO and Ingersoll Rand products. Pump operators said they knew they could trust ARO to solve mission critical fluid handling problems for their business.
