One of Pumptec’s competitive advantages over others is the optimizing of performance to a specific application. With choice sometimes comes confusion. The following can be a helpful guide to choosing the correct pump set for your needs.
Pumptec pump sets consist of 3 elements, pump, motor and cam bearing. Customers choose all three elements when they decide upon a pump set.
The first element is the pump series and each pump series has its performance range. Pumptec has standard seal designs for each pump series, but there may be alternatives for specific applications, like chemical pumping. Standard sealing technologies used by Pumptec include v-packings, teflon (t-seal) and u-cup seals. Not all technologies are available in each series or performance ranges.
The second element is the motor. Pumptec’s offers various motor options to fit many applications. The standard motor options are 12V, 120V and 220V, with 24V for some pump series. The horse power performance range of Pumptec pumps is from .10 to 1.5 HP.
