Pump Fed Central System Planning

Welcome to the Lafferty Equipment Pump Fed Central System Planning Tool

Lafferty Equipment offers all of the equipment (except piping) required to complete the installation of a Pump Fed Central System for foam cleaning and/or sanitizing at Food & Beverage production plants. This tool can be used to plan for up to 2 foaming chemicals and 1 sanitizing chemical at a time. If additional foaming or sanitizing chemicals are desired, use the tool repeatedly for each set of up to 3 chemicals.

  • The piping distance (in feet) between the pump and the farthest applicator.
If this information is not readily available, download the Pre-Planning Worksheet (PDF).
Available Recommendations
  • Proportioning equipment to dilute chemical concentrates
  • Float valve and air-activated solenoids for controlling the supply of solution
