Centrifugal Pumps

What Applications are Ideal for Centrifugal Pumps?

THE MOST COMMON TYPE OF PUMP USED FOR TRANSFER OF FLUIDS Centrifugal process pumps are one of the most common pump types used in industrial processing applications because they’re engineered to be low-maintenance, easy to operate and highly efficient. The fact that centrifugal pumps are the most popular choice for fluid movement makes them a […]

How To Prevent Pump Cavitation

WHAT IS PUMP CAVITATION Cavitation is not a new phenomenon that impacts a pump system, but it is an issue that occurs far too often. It occurs when air bubbles are generated inside a pump because of the partial pressure drop of the flowing liquid, resulting in a tiny air bubble. The air bubbles move, […]

STAMPED – Choosing The Right Hose For Your Application

Proper hose and fitting selection are critical to the safety of both your people and your profits, thus why the S.T.A.M.P.E.D. acronym was created. The STAMPED acronym is an industry-wide standard that should begin every conversation when selecting a hose for a new application. STAMPED stands for: Size, Temperature, Application, Material, Pressure, Ends and Delivery. […]

What Exactly Is A Positive Displacement Pump?

Positive Displacement (PD) Pumps work by trapping a fixed amount of fluid, then displacing or forcing it into the discharge pipe. PD Pumps are engineered to use a reciprocating, rotary or diaphragm method to move a variety of fluids. These pumps are most commonly used for pumping viscous liquids and those that contain fragile solids. PD […]

What is a Mag Drive Pump?

Magnetic Drive Pumps Mag Drive pumps are seal-less pumps that use the technology of a drive magnet and inner magnet connected to an impeller to move fluid through the pump. The drive magnet and inner magnet are separated by a rear casing or housing, creating a seal-less containment. A Mag Drive Pump will prevent the […]

Carbon Filtration for Odor Removal in Base Ethanol/Alcohol Sanitizer Chemicals

Activated carbon media, either in bulk or filter element form, has been shown to be effective in removing odor in applications where customers are using non-FDA grade ethanol and alcohol to produce hand sanitizers and bulk sanitizing agents for combating the COVID-19 virus spread. For proper filtration, the two key factors (challenges) while using activated […]

Hose Audit & Testing Program

We’ve tested over 10,000 hoses in dozens of manufacturing facilities. The average failure rate of the hoses we test is 18%. That’s a lot of unwanted opportunity for safety issues, downtime, and inefficiencies in your process. Proper hose specification and maintenance are essential to consistent production output, efficient long-term fluid management and a safe and […]

Why Mechanical Seals Fail

Mechanical seals keep the fluid contained within pumps while the internal mechanical components move inside the stationary housing.  When mechanical seals fail, the resulting leaks can cause extensive damage to the pump and often leaves large messes that can be significant safety hazards. Besides being a crucial component to a pump running efficiently, it is […]

Ultra-Portable Kodak Slide Viewer

We were getting ahead of our spring cleaning and found this “Ultra-Portable Kodak Slide Viewer”, it gave everyone a good laugh.  This is what Pump Training use to look like in the late 70’s / early 80’s from our best guess.  It came fresh with Wilden Pump slides and a Pulsafeeder training tape. We know […]
