BackgroundWith the spread of COVID-19, people across the globe continue to purchase record amounts of cleaning products, including soap and hand sanitizers. SANDPIPER manufactures a full line of FDA compliant air-operated double diaphragm (AODD) pumps and is a longtime pumping solutions provider for a major hand sanitizer manufacturer. Supporting Existing ManufacturersWhen the manufacturer recognized the severity of the COVID-19 epidemic in December 2019, its “demand surge preparedness team” quickly shifted to only producing alcohol-based hand sanitizers and spray cleaner products—24 hours a day, seven days a week. The manufacturer uses nearly 30 SANDPIPER Pumps to maximize production under FDA sanitary processing requirements, creating as much product as facilities can sustain at this critical time. Supporting New EntrantsWith the high demand for protective gear and sanitation products, many businesses in the cosmetic, alcoholic beverage, and cannabis industries have stepped up to assist in production.Understanding the need for pump expertise, Rogers Machinery's technical and sales teams are continuing to assist non-traditional businesses as they reposition existing pumps to produce hand sanitizer to fight COVID-19.
