Benefits of Using Pressurization Pumps in Industrial Settings

Specifically designed for use in harsh and heavy-duty conditions to move fluids, pressurization pumps are relied upon for numerous industrial applications. With the broad spectrum of pumps available, it can be difficult when it comes to selecting the right type of pump for a specific use. At Bestline, we understand the vital role pumps play in industry and would like to take this opportunity to highlight how the type of pump selected can benefit an application.


What to Look for when Selecting a Pressurization Pump

When it comes to the life performance of pressurization pumps, it is imperative that the right one is chosen:

  • The material that the pump is made from determines whether it can withstand the type of fluid to be pumped and its ability to withstand harsh environments.
  • If the industrial application involves the handling of corrosive or abrasive substances, it would be best to note the fluid’s properties to ensure that the appropriate model can handle the stresses.
  • Having a reliable source of power is a must, especially when fluids need to be metered.
  • Make sure that the voltage and current can handle the demands of the pump.
  • The pump selected should be able to sustain the anticipated elevation, pressurization, or submersion of the intended application.

As the performance of pressurization pumps is based on flow rates, it is crucial to consult with us at Bestline before committing to a pump solely based on pressure.


Quality Positive Displacement Pressurization Pumps

Pressurization pumps can handle a wide range of non-corrosive, corrosive, and abrasive liquids at high operating pressures and are often used for dosing applications as well as for tasks that require speed-dependent pressure regulation. Cat Pumps’ plunger and piston pumps are the most dependable. They have proven to be durable and reliable over a broad spectrum of industry applications.


Industries that Benefit from Cat Pumps

Cat Pumps’ range of triplex reciprocating plunger and piston pumps have been specifically designed with chemical and wear-resistant ceramic plungers that reciprocate through high- and low-pressure seals. The dynamic piston assembly of Cat Pumps’ piston pump uniflow valve design and mechanically actuated inlet valves results in strong suction capabilities. As these pressurization pumps require little maintenance and offer a variety of drive options, they can meet demanding requirements.

Offering varying GPM and PSI output depending on the drive type, horsepower, and RPM of the different frames, Cat Pumps can be used across a wide variety of industries, such as:

  • Industrial cleaning such as heavy-duty vehicle wash bays, sewer jetting, and decontamination and sanitisation, to name a few
  • Reverse osmosis and water treatment, including wastewater treatment and desalination
  • Food and beverage processing
  • Pharmaceutical processing
  • High-pressure misting and cooling for controlled crop growth, dust suppression, or fire protection

The continuously evolving engineering and pump modifications of Cat Pumps have made it possible for them to be used in some of the toughest conditions.
