What are High Pressure Pumps?

High pressure pumps are designed to release liquids at extremely high pressures. Entry level units can release liquid at rates of Psi 800 and over. In simpler terms, the liquid is placed under severe pressure in the pump and once the outflow is opened, it is released by incredible force. Depending on use and application, you can easily set the high pressure pump’s pressure to the desired level.

Upon closer inspection you will soon find that there are many different types of high pressure pumps available on the market – each with its own intended uses and applications. Each of the units is adjustable to perform at lower pressures than their maximum power. In general, there are two types of pressure pumps used in industries throughout the world. The first and perhaps most popular type is the piston high pressure pump.

This pump is used mainly for tasks that won’t require a Psi of more than 1000. This means that you will make use of the piston pumps for smaller tasks that will not require temperatures to be too high. This is in stark contrast to the second type of high pressure pump – the plunger pump. This pump can create far higher pressure rations than that of the piston pump and is used in industrial applications.

Why You Should Invest in Cat Pumps from Bestline Manufacturing

Since 1971, Bestline Manufacturing has been associated with Cat Pumps as the sole franchise holders in the southern Africa region. We are one of the leading suppliers of high pressure pumps in Johannesburg and we continue to lead the industry forward in innovation. For many years now Bestline Manufacturing has been supplying the South African industry with the best quality Cat high pressure pumps available on the market.

Our popularity lies in our dependability, reliability and our ability to make available the very latest high pressure pump technology at affordable and competitive rates. Our partnership with Cat Pumps has also helped us to secure our industry leading reputation as a forward thinking and progressive supplier and company.

There are many reasons why it makes sense to invest in Cat high pressure pumps. First of all, the positive-seating action of the check valves of Cat pumps provides far better wear and higher volumetric efficiency. This is especially the case for high pressure pump operations ranging from 6000 to 20,000 psi. During operation, this results in higher efficiency. With pressure compensated high pressure pumps, the fluid will flow through the pump and back to tank at relatively low pressure. This leading design also serves to provide stabilised temperatures with little increase in heat, even when there is a need to compensate for longer periods.

The Cat Pumps’ triplex high pressure pumps are the industry standard technology used by many organisations around the world to meet their business objectives. It supports the road and rail transport industry in Johannesburg and the rest of the country, as well as the construction, food production and processing and manufacturing sectors, all of which will have a hard time meeting their objectives without this important technology at hand.

At Bestline Manufacturing we make available affordable and quality Cat Pumps with a complete range of spares and comprehensive design services with state-of-the-art testing facilities. Aside from our extensive range of affordable and cutting edge high pressure pumps, we also offer an extensive line of other products.
