uniquely designed, central opening check valve allows
soft solids and stringy particles to pass through without

Manager at ITT Corporation, and the performance
and service life of this pump far exceeds all other
similar pumps on the market.

than it used to be. People have always loved blended
fruit drinks, but today, children and adults are looking
for more healthy options.
