With both our knowledge and our pump range covering a multitude of applications, Castle Pumps have the pleasure of supplying customers in a wide variety of industries, all of which require different standards. To demonstrate our experience across a number of markets we have compiled several interesting case studies.
Frozen Food Manufacturer - Air Operated Diaphragm Pump
Castle Pumps received an enquiry from one of the largest frozen food manufacturer brands in the UK that needed a replacement chemical pump for cleaning the processing plant and equipment. Due to the air supply being already available on-side and reliability being key, we specified Debem Boxer 50 AOOD pump. We carefully selected all pump elements to ensure they are compatible with the cleaning chemical and handle the hazardous application.

釀酒廠公司- Flexible Impeller Pump
We received an enquiry from a contract winemaker based in the UK. They required a food grade pump to transfer wine at temperatures between 2 and 65⁰C, with a maximum flow rate of 15,000 litres per hour and ideally the option of variable speed to enable more control. Due to the nature of their application and the specifications required, we supplied the Liverani All in One Flexible Impeller Pump which was a perfect fit for their requirements.
Paint & Powder Coating Manufacturer - AODD Pump
We received an enquiry from an industrial paint manufacturer who needed a pump for their oil/solvent mixture. The fluid was being used to clean used containers, before returning to the tank and starting the cycle again.
