Sanitary Pumps & Sanitary Manufacturing Solutions

Explore our family of FDA compliant solutions from our Expert Series line of air operated diaphragm pumps.

ARO FDA-compliant pumps, a part of our Expert Series (EXP) line, are designed to transfer fluid efficiently and safely. Our sanitary diaphragm pumps combine the heavy duty reliability of our EXP pump series with the capacity to handle high volume transfer and fluid dispensing. These innovative features enable you to produce more for your customers.

Our food-grade sanitary pumps typically yield 20 to 30 percent better flow rates than other products on the market today. Because every ounce of fluid is treated gently, the shelf life is often extended and product quality better maintained.

Sanitary manufacturing professionals rely on ARO for our innovative pump technology and high-quality components. Our sanitary positive displacement pumps deliver safety and quality, as well as an industry leading total cost of ownership.

“We had evaluated other diaphragm pumps, but they were inefficient and the air requirements were too high for some breweries. … A gentle canning process extends the shelf life of the canned beer while maintaining flavor quality. That makes my clients happy.”
— Justin Brandt, founder of Northwest Canning, Portland, Oregon

  • The ability to run dry, which eliminates the risk of pump damage
