The pump replaces a progressive cavity pump and is used to transfer waste yeast to road tankers.

The Hidrostal pump has speeded up the tanker load time whilst saving a considerable amount of factory floor space because of its smaller foot print. The Hidrostal pump with its screw centrifugal impeller has the ability to handle more viscous liquors than most centrifugal pumps whilst still having centrifugal benefits of higher efficiencies and smaller pump size. In addition, the Hidrostal screw centrifugal pump has larger solids handling capability.

Hidrostal Limited, based in Newbury, manufactures and distributes pumps. All their pumping solutions are based upon the unique and patented Hidrostal screw centrifugal impeller, renowned for its ability to efficiently handle very delicate materials, thick and viscous liquids and untreated sewage without blocking.
