Hydro-Transport Pumps

6NHPP-FoodPumpAquarius Pumps introduced the first Hydro-Transport pumps to the industry nearly 50 years ago. Unlike Dynamic Solids Handling Pumps, or other types of pumps that are sometimes used in the food industry, the Aquarius P and PP series pumps are designed and manufactured with the sole purpose of pumping food products. Ideal for agricultural applications such as fruit washing and packing as well as food manufacturing operations. Utilizing Aquarius inventions such as offset volute, Aquarius Food Process pumps have the lowest product damage rates in the industry and are the pump of choice for substance process pumps around the world.

Aquarius recognizable frame design incorporating mounting surfaces rather than mounting feet, lets you know it’s a quality Aquarius frame supporting a robust Aquarius Pumps. The feet can be useful and space-saving in food plant mountings.
