The dictionary definition of a pump makes it sound like a relatively simple instrument. For instance, Merriam-Webster states that a pump is “a device that raises, transfers, deliver, or compresses fluids or that attenuates gases especially by suction or pressure or both.” But dealing with industrial pump applications where the materials involved can be exotic or hazardous leads to numerous complications, complications where technical expertise becomes paramount.

What is a multistage pump?
Multistage pumps are centrifugal pumps in which the fluid flows through several impellers fitted in series. This is as opposed to a single stage pump which only has one impeller. The more stages the pump has, the higher the final discharge pressure.
Multistage chemical pumps are unique in that they are able to produce increasingly higher pressures with the addition of every stage while the flow range always remains constant for a given rpm. Read More about Multistage Chemical Pumps 101 »
316 stainless steel is built to last—it can pump toxic and corrosive chemicals just as well as it can work with water and wort. 316 stainless steel is known for it for its strength and durability across a wide-range of chemical pumps.
It is important to calculate this accurately in order to determine the correct sizing and scale of pumping equipment for your needs. Read More about How to Calculate Total Dynamic Head for an Industrial Pump »

Carbon materials are some of the most versatile in the industrial world, offering everything from brush-level softness to near-ceramic grades of hardness. Bushings are designed for wear and tear, absorbing the abrasion and shocks of normal use while keeping a transfer pump’s shafting pristine. Carbon bushing has a particular advantage due to its self-lubricating properties, greatly reducing necessary maintenance while still protecting expensive pump components.

OEM’s, Original Equipment Manufacturers, are manufacturers who make parts or subsystems that are used in other companies end products. A system is only as a good as its weakest part, and finding quality parts is vital for the success of any product. Many systems require pumps, and those pumps used in larger systems are commonly referred to as OEM Pumps.
