  • Craft Beer Company Uses Progressing Cavity Pumps For Spent Grain Removal
    Craft Beer Company Uses Progressing Cavity Pumps For Spent Grain Removal

    Moving spent grain and yeast through the brewing process is key to quality beer production. Brew masters at the Victory Brewing Company’s newest brewery needed a reliable pumping solution for the difficult job of moving spent grain and yeast through the brewing process. They opted for a progressing cavity pump, citing the pump’s ability to smoothly convey the viscous and abrasive media created during a brew cycle. Victory selected a progressing cavity pump, based on its ability to pump under the higher discharge pressures needed to move the spent grain all the way to silos located outside the facility.
