The pump industry is an enormous industry and plays a critical role in almost every facet of our lives.
Applications for OEM pump controllers include: Water supply, fire protection, oil and gas, power plants, wastewater treatment, sump pumps for homes, processing chemicals, foods, and pharmaceuticals, and many more.
A pump is a machine that imparts energy to a fluid in order to increase its energy. The resulting pressure of the fluid (liquid or gas) moves it from one point to another.
Pumps can be classified into three categories:
- Water supply and sewage
- Medical fluids
- Heating and Refrigeration
Power or Energy Transfer
- Hot oil or Water
- Chilled Water
- Process Pumps
- Boiler Feed pumps
- Water jets
- Injection pumps
Where are pumps used?
Pumps can be used in various settings and to pump different types of liquids. Pumps can be used in the following applications:
- Residential – Small pumps serve many purposes in your home. Potable water may enter your house after being pumped from a well, or through the municipal system. Your heating and/or cooling units use pumps to move fluids and air through those systems. High rise apartment buildings must maintain constant water pressure to ensure residents on the top floors receive the same pressure as those on street level.
- Industrial – Fire Pumps protect buildings and people during the work week. These systems stand primed and ready in case of fire. Pumps generate high water pressure for de-scaling and boiler feed applications. Some food and beverage preparations require pumps to insert the finished product into packaging.
- Agricultural – Pumps support food production and agriculture by irrigating arid lands and areas with little rainfall. Wells and vertical pumps offer life supporting water to livestock as well as people.
- Scientific and Medical – Pumps are used in scientific arenas in the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals, toothpaste, and medicine. Chemicals require special pumps, called process pumps, that seal processed liquids from the outside environment preventing contamination. Blood and bodily fluids are moved with pumps and pumping systems when in surgical/medical settings.
- Marine – Naval ships and other marine going vessels use pumps to de-water bilges, provide boiler feed, stabilize ballast systems, support weaponry, and desalination for potable water. Pumps are a very important component of marine vessel’s safety and security systems.
