I was working on making a small dispensing machine for tea for a sort of extra-curricular competition and including a small pumping system for quick discharge of milk and water. I have seen some machines exist before that dispense tea, coffee etc. What small pumps do they use ? It's surely not gravity driven as gravity wouldn't impart that much speed to the flow as a pump would. Any specific name or brand for such kind of pumps so I can search the market out for their availability.

You will need a "sanitary" metering pump.

Try searching for this. Many companies make these.
 

1. What exactly are small sized pumps for dispensing beverages?

Small sized pumps for dispensing beverages are mechanical devices designed to accurately and efficiently dispense beverages from containers such as bottles, kegs, or bags. They are commonly used in bars, restaurants, and other food service establishments to dispense drinks like soda, beer, and wine.

2. How do small sized pumps for dispensing beverages work?

Small sized pumps for dispensing beverages work by using a piston or diaphragm mechanism to create suction and draw liquid from the container. The liquid is then pushed through a tube and out of the pump's nozzle. Some pumps also use an air pressure system to push the liquid out.

3. What are the benefits of using small sized pumps for dispensing beverages?

Small sized pumps for dispensing beverages offer several benefits, including accurate and consistent portion control, reduced waste, and increased efficiency. They also help maintain the quality and freshness of the beverage by preventing contamination and exposure to air.

4. Are there different types of small sized pumps for dispensing beverages?

Yes, there are different types of small sized pumps for dispensing beverages. Some common types include manual pumps, electric pumps, and air pressure pumps. Manual pumps require physical effort to operate, while electric pumps are powered by electricity and air pressure pumps use compressed air to dispense the beverage.

5. How do I choose the right small sized pump for dispensing beverages?

The right small sized pump for dispensing beverages will depend on your specific needs and the type of beverage you will be dispensing. Consider factors such as the volume of drinks you need to dispense, the type of container you will be using, and the level of accuracy and control required. It is also important to choose a pump made from durable and food-safe materials for safe and hygienic dispensing.
