Pump is a company that has had experience manufactoring
well pumps since 1872. The company's first well pump
was installed for the city of Milwaukee, WI and was
rated at 5,500 GPM at 200 ft head. In 1884, A-C Pump
installed a record-setting centrifugal pump that delivered
48,000 GPM against a 13 ft head in Chicago. Fifty types
of these pumps are still manufactured today providing
excellent performance and reliability.
Pump has provided service to the pollution control industry
in the 1880s when pollution in the Milwaukee river threatened
the water supply by inventing a pump to flush the river
by replacing its volume in the whole once every 18 hours.
In addition, A-C Pump helped provide flood-control in
Memphis,TN by keeping water in the Mississippi River
beneath its levees for over 50 years. A-C pumps were
also installed at Sanitary Districts in Chicago and
Detroit to help keep their systems working smoothly.
"shearpeller" pump was first manufactured
by A-C Pump as well. The design of this pump can handle
up to 25% entrained gases without losing prime. The
ability of the shearpeller pump to handle difficulities
incurred with raw sludge has gained the company an award.
The patented Equiseal sealing system also developed
by A-C Pump helped plant operators to fix problems they
experienced with conventional packing and mechanical
seals. Equiseal doesn't need a water drain, provides
simple maintenance, and had no leakage issues.
Pump along with Goulds Pumps continues to remain on
top of the most recent major innovations in the technology
of well pumps. Not only are the designs of A-C Pump
and Goulds Pumps' well pump systems highly efficient,
but the materials used in the creation of the well pumps
are sturdy and unfailing.
Pump and Goulds Pumps also has one of the largest distribution
systems for parts world wide and over $60 million worth
of inventory ready to be shipped.
