  • Pumptec Brings Value to Every Stakeholder

    Quality WorkPumptec Inc is proud of their made in USA products and continue to manufacture in Minnesota when others have sent work and technology out of the country.

    From the beginning, Pumptec has sought to bring value to every stakeholder, from our suppliers to our final customer. Our cultural values require we source our materials and processing, such as machining, from local suppliers whenever possible and keep the jobs in our community. We regard all entities involved in creating the Pumptec products as part of a family working cooperatively towards a common goal - the best products for our customers.

    Our home-grown technology permits Pumptec to respond quickly and completely to customer’s requirements with application specific product answers. Many of Pumptec’s patented system technology has its origin in customer requests that others were unable to fulfill. When a product is produced across an ocean or a border, the time to the customer’s hands increases. Market opportunities do not wait and Pumptec’s customers do not need to wait.

    Manufacturing matters.

  • Series 348U Plunger Pump

    The standard u-cup seal system handles the challenges of various water solutions and tolerates some level of debris in solution. Additionally, the flow capability of Series 348U permits a range of uses for hand-carry pump equipment.

    Motor options: 12V, 24V, 120V and 230V.

  • Importance of Proper Filtration

    Proper filtration helps to maintain the function and proper operation of equipment. Many applications require equipment to have frequent fillings and this is a time when debris can enter the pumping system from buckets, hoses or undissolved chemicals.

    Some of the most harmful debris is hard, granular materials like undissolved powdered chemicals or sand. This granular material will abrade on the plunger and damage the seals and plunger during operation. Evidence of this type of damage is leaking and seal failure. Valves can be damaged in the critical seating area with the result of diminished performance. Regulating devices such as unloaders and regulators can become jammed and stick sometimes causing significant damage to the system.

    Line StrainerTypically, an 80-mesh strainer is recommended to trap the largest, most harmful debris. There are situations that a 40-mesh strainer is recommended, but this is not common and will likely result in lower pump life.
