Food & Beverage

The challenges have never been greater in the food and beverage industry. FSMA regulations require more clean-in-place and a rigorous washdown schedule. Our pumps can handle most of the solids, food residue and waste you produce, as well as the wastewater and stringent chemicals used to keep your equipment clean. This keeps your cleaning time efficient to maximize your production time.


Low maintenance and high endurance make BJM Pumps the reliability leader. We work closely with you to recommend the right pump for your applications to avoid clogs. Minimal maintenance means you don’t lose time and money. Our durable, long-life pumps handle your toughest challenges to keep your plant running, even in 24/7 environments.


Unscheduled downtime and clogs mean lost time, production and money. BJM offers features like our Seal Minder® moisture detection early warning system and our “three seal motor protection” to prevent leaks. Our products require minimal maintenance and are engineered to avoid costly clogs or back-ups.
