Best way to transfer bulk hot liquid

Cleaning a peristaltic pump isn't as difficult as one would imagine. You pump hot water and cleansers through and the tubing can be detached and cleaned as well. A device for transporting food grade materials needs to be easily cleaned.

Or, I also have one of these: http://www.seattleco...a_7cCTC785B0020
It's called a 'cezve,' a Turkish coffee pot. I bought it years ago because Bananas Foster was my "go-to" dessert for dinner parties. Not only does it look great on the tabletop, it was easy to put the thing on the stove burner, pour in the liquor, heat it, light it with a fireplace match, and then pour the flaming liquid into my chafing dish with no fear of burning my fingers.
But it also works just great for scooping boiling hot liquids in order to transfer them.

A centrifugal pump can be CIPed. A vane pump cannot - and I am sure many of them cannot be disassembled for COP.
Oy, good luck cleaning that thing haha
Someting like this may work:
Also, I remember there is another kind of pump which can work. It is basically a round tube squeezed continually by two motorized wheels rotating in one direction. It is self-priming (poitive displacement pump without a piston.)
Cleaning a drum pump is not that problematic. There are no valves and pistons. It's like a centrifugal pump, except centrifugal pump is not self-priming.
Inside drum pump:
A peristaltic pump is ideal, but difficult to find one with high capacity.
