TeelingWhiskeyCo Posted August 29, 2012 Share Posted August 29, 2012 Hi everyone! I need some help... We currently have our casks warehoused on pallets with the casks on their ends. This system is great for moving the casks and for stacking them on top of each other. But, this means that when we empty the casks we have to turn/roll the cask on its side and empty the whiskey into a stainless steel trough. Without getting into details this is not an ideal set up. There are health and safety issues along with risks of spills or damage. What I would like to do is pump the whiskey out of the casks. I have even seen this done! The process was simple... A tube or spear was placed in the casks. The casks was at a slight angle with the end of the tube in the lower corner of the casks. The pump was turned on and had enough pull to suck the whiskey out and into a large vat. What I am unsure about is the type of pump to use. The set up I saw had a small centrifugal pump. But every centrifugal pump that I have used needed to be below the liquid level so it was "primed". Has anyone seen this type of set up? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
