Sale price$525.53 CAD


Fast Facts

An extension of the Thick Pump family, the TPV-L stainless steel pump with the addition of a lever reduces the force needed to dispense from your standard 3 1/2 quart (3.3 L) fountain jar. Set-up to serve a 1/2 oz (15 mL) portion with a maximum of 1 oz (60 mL) and can be reduced in 1/8 oz (3.7 mL) increments. Contents can be quickly identified by specifying a colored and engraved pump knob upon order, at no additional charge; black is standard.

Ideal For
  • Dispensing thick caramel, chocolate fudge or marshmallow crème topping
  • Reducing the force required to dispense a topping or ingredient speeds prep time
  • Providing menu item consistency with precise portions
  • Countertop use in a serving station, wherever FP-V fountain jar pumps fit
  • Back Of House kitchen make stations

Notes: Included lid lock (80976) needs to be in place to secure pump lid to a Server Products fountain jar (82557, 83149 or 83156) while dispensing; jar sold separately. Natural operation of lever will cause some surface wear on the pump knob.

When using in Server non-insulated stations (SR-1, SR-2 or SR-4), a support brace (p/n 100001) is required to prevent jar from tipping during use.

How does a lever help with thick products?

Suppose you're dispensing chocolate fudge topping... the chart and figures below indicate the effort an operator needs to exert for one serving.

What about Nutella®?
  • We wish! One of the essential elements to dispensing is the food needs to find its own level. That means if you remove a scoop, it will fill in fairly quickly. If it doesn't, the pump may serve once or twice and then stop - the product near the intake has been dispensed and an air gap (hole) is created. While a lever can reduce the force necessary to dispense, the product also needs to finds its own level to be compatible.  
Can a lever pump dispense larger particulates?
  • Unfortunately, no. Larger food pieces would get lodged in the valve body, which is a common part for all three pump styles referenced above. The size of soft food particulates that can likely be dispensed remains at less than 1/4" in diameter.
