Pump peanut butter as easy as pie with these versatile workhorses of the food industry.

A leader in sanitary applications, Graco has designed these SaniForce pumps with sanitary flanges, quick knock down connections and a FDA compliant shroud for the air motor, which makes cleaning, and sanitization a breeze. The drum unloader and bin evacuation systems are also designed to help protect the ingredients from external contamination and bacteria because the follower plate and inflatable seal come in contact with all sides of the bin or drum, keeping the product covered during transfer.

Replace your outdated and dangerous scooping methods with a modern drum unloader positive displacement pump from Graco and Anderson Dahlen.
