High pressure, hot caustic and hot water are needed when washing the interior and exterior of totes, tanks, barrels and containers used in pumping a number of different difficult fluids.
Fluids range from dirty chemical, tacky glue and adhesives, food related fluids such as beer, oils and lubricating fluids, even muddy manure.
Although the hot fluids are filtered, small particles, fibers and abrasives find their way through the reciprocating pump system. Add this to high temperatures and high pressures, and you soon have problems that will destroy many different types of reciprocating pumps.

The seal-less nature of the Hydra-Cell diaphragm pumps enable charged and dirty liquids to be processed without need for fine filtration to protect the diaphragm pump.
The Hydra-Cell diaphragm pump needs little maintenance and can operate at continuous duty at high pressure.
Pulsation is low, so dampeners may not be required for most Hydra-Cell® diaphragm pumps.
Hydra-Cell® diaphragm pumps can handle solids up to 500 microns, or more. They can be pumped without fine filtration. System costs are reduced and maintenance is simplified.
Most diaphragm pumps in the Hydra-Cell® diaphragm pump range can operate at any pressure from <1 bar up to at least 70 bar. Some models up to 170 bar.
Seal-less design distinguishes the Hydra-Cell® diaphragm pumps from other diaphragm pumps and is the basis of its long service life - many of the liquids pumped are harmful to pump seals. The Hydra-Cell® diaphragm pumps are tolerant of small solids, resistant to chemical and corrosive attack.
Energy savings. Compact and highly efficient (80-85%), a Hydra-Cell® abrasive pumps can be fitted with a smaller motor than would be required by many much bigger hot water pumps for equivalent flows and pressures.
