How Can You Prevent Unexpected Vacuum Pump Failures?

Identifying potential problems with your vacuum pump system can mean the difference between a scheduled repair and productivity loss from pump failure. Let’s start with four common signs your vacuum pump is in need of attention: Excessive pump leakage Unusual sounds or excessive noise Excessive pump discharge pressure Pump vibration These apply to all vacuum


Centrifugal vs Positive Displacement Pumps: What’s the Difference?

There are two basic types of pumps: centrifugal and positive displacement. What’s the difference? A centrifugal pump is a pressure-creating device. As pressure goes up, flow goes down in direct correlation. A positive displacement pump is a flow-creating device. It moves fluid at the same speed regardless of the pressure on the inlet end. Let’s


What Are Dosing Pumps?

Accurate dosing of chemicals is a critical part of the production process in many different industries. Whether in a rugged process like wastewater or sludge treatment, or a sterile pharmaceutical process, dosing exactly the right amount of chemicals, at the correct rate, is crucial in ensuring process and product safety, reliability and efficiency.
