Pumping Solutions | Choosing the Right Pump



Piston Oil Pumps

  1. Type and composition of lubricants: petroleum or synthetic based, windshield washer fluid, anti-freeze, transmission fluid
    • Choose a pump that is compatible with the fluid you will be pumping
  2. # of dispense points, # simultaneous dispense points, Required flow
    • Choose a pump with a flow rate to meet your facility needs
  3. Pumping distance
    • Choose a pump that produces enough pressure for the distance from the fluid tank to the furthest dispense point
  4. Customer type/application
    • Not all pumps are the same, choose pumps suited to the facility application and environment. 


Piston Grease Pumps

  1. Type and composition of grease: NLGI grade, petroleum or synthetic based, amount & type of compounds.
    • Choose a pump that is compatible with the fluid you will be pumping
  2. Required Flow & distance to be pumped
    • Grease pumps are typically medium to high volume pumps
    • Higher ration pumps are best for multiple dispense points while lower ratios are used for the transfer of grease
  3. System Configuration
    • This is key to a grease system. Whether it is a roll-around unit, multiple dispense unit, or a lube truck the proper pump will ensure a properly operating system
  4. Environment
    • Weather can affect grease substantially. Cold environments slow the flow of grease.


AODD Pumps

  1. Type and composition of lubricants: petroleum or synthetic based, windshield washer fluid, anti-freeze, transmission fluid
    • AODD pumps are a good choice for high volume transfer, bulk fill, used oil evacuation, and 50/50 mixing
    • Choose a pump that is compatible with the fluid you will be pumping
  2. # of dispense points, # simultaneous dispense points, Required flow
    • Choose a pump with a flow rate to meet your pumping needs
  3. Pumping distance
    • Consider the pumping distance when selecting your AODD pump.
  4. If the AODD pump is being used in a closed system, order and install the proper pressure relief kit.
