One of our food production customers was paying $2,000 per week to have a third party pump out their used avocado oil, a byproduct of their production process. The oil would collect in a 10’ pit and they did not have an in-house solution for removal. Our team built them a mobile Wilden Pump Cart […]
Last month we discussed the internal operation of reciprocating pumps, one of two types of positive displacement pumps. This month we will analyze how the other type of PD pump – rotary pumps. Rotary pumps have rotating gears instead of the backward and forwards motion of cylinders like reciprocating pumps. In some cases, they can […]
A customer was no longer able to buy their chemical supply in bulk, causing them to use smaller totes.

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 […]
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, […]
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 […]
