Ezi-action Drum Pump for Micro Breweries
1 March 2018
Craft Brews

Ezi-action® Drumpumps are in Micro Breweries.

In England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and across continental Europe, the chemical resistant yet food safe Ezi-action® Drumpumps are being used in Micro Breweries to dispense cleaning chemicals and sanitisers, enzymes and finings from bulk containers and drums.

When the cleaning regime of a Micro Brewery is not automated (CIP - Cleaning in Place) Ezi-action® Drumpumps are the dispensing method of choice for safe and reliable chemical dispensing. 

When enzymes and finings need dispensing by hand Ezi-action® Drumpumps are a proven dispensing solution.

Ezi-action® Drumpumps will also dispense the propylene glycol used in the brewery chiller.

 

Ezi-action® Drumpumps are part of Health and Safety

Ezi-action® Drumpump should be part of your Health and Safety Programme - The hazard of manual chemical dispensing from bulk containers can be controlled with Ezi-action® Drumpumps.

 

Ezi-action® Drumpumps are helping Brewers

The Micro Brewing sector is fast growing and Ezi-action® Drumpumps are helping new brewers move from being small to more commercially viable.

The proven quality, reliability and unique serviceability of Ezi-action® Drumpumps makes them the hand pump of choice by micro brewers for dispensing per acetic acid, caustic and other cleaning chemicals and sanitisers.  

Keeping things clean is critically important. Ezi-action® Drumpumps are part of successful cleaning regimes.

 

Why Ezi-action® Drumpumps are the best dispensing choice

Ezi-action® Drumpumps are being chosen over taps and anti-glugging devices as they offer the safest, most reliable and economical method of dispensing.

The features of Ezi-action® Drumpumps include;

  • Proven tolerance to concentrated cleaning chemicals, disinfectants and sanitisers.
  • Secure fitting into the lid opening. 
  • Upright pumping - so no leakage, wastage or messy puddle.
  • No lifting and pouring - so the worker* is not at risk from work injuries associated with repetitive bending and lifting of heavy containers.
  • Reliable and an excellent long term investment. Business owners value cost effective, sustainable, productive solutions.

 

*The maximum lifting weight for women is now being specified in some countries as less than 16kg.  Reference: http://www.beckettandco.co.uk/manual-handling-faq-weight/

Microbreweries - a growth industry

Demand for locally produced or interesting new beers, which typically have stronger flavours than mass-produced mainstream beers, has been the main reason for the rise in breweries in England. In the European Union in the past 5 year the number of breweries have risen by more than 75 per cent. Reference: Financial Times Guardian
