Hi everybody! I would like to pump carbonated beverages. Things like beer and soda, namely. I've been trying to figure out what kind of pump I need to pull this off without spinning all the carbonation out and making my beer/soda flat and cavitating my pump. I'm looking at a rotary vane stainless steel pump from Procon (Procon 3 series) at about 0.8 GPM. Does anybody have any experience with this? Is this the best kind of pump for this application, or is there something else I should look at? Also, I'm hoping that since the pump is stainless steel it will be safe to drink the fluid after it goes through the pump?
