A Better, Faster Way to Source Pumps

Chemical Pump Manufacturers

Looking for a chemical pump manufacturer?

Due to the potentially hazardous fluid being pumped, a chemical pump needs to be carefully selected so that the pump material is compatible with the fluid. In addition, the pump must be properly sized to eliminate any unnecessary maintenance and repair.

A chemical pump manufacturer can help analyze your system (including head, flow, fluid characteristics) to help determine the right pump for your job.

Finding the right supplier is important, and PumpScout can help. Below are a few options, but we also recommend using the search module to the right of this page to connect with additional companies.

More information about chemical pumps:

Chemical pumps are built to be resistant to handle corrosive and possibly abrasive industrial liquids that would be damaging to standard pumps. They can be any number of different types depending on the specific application. Some are made to handle simple, less corrosive chemicals such as oils or cosmetic products, while others are designed to handle dangerous and volatile chemicals that must be kept under very specific conditions.

Chemical pumps can be either centrifugal pumps or positive displacement. The most common centrifugal type is the ANSI B73.1 pump, which is an end suction, single stage centrifugal pump. Many are positive displacement pumps used to move liquid chemicals at high pressures. For thicker chemicals or those with high viscosity, very heavy-duty pumps are needed.
