Repair case study

A German made Italian owned company pump with no parts available in the US had a lip seal leaking a dangerous chemical. We solved the problem in a very timely manner, saving the customer both time and money, and created a vastly safer pump.

The original lip seal (left) was installed in the back of the stuffing box to keep the oil inside the box. We custom designed a low operating height Type 8 mechanical seal (right) in place of the lip seal for improved sealing.

Custom built package case study

Large midwest oil company needed three mobile units for testing gasoline in multiple locations. Customer is so pleased they have ordered additional units.

Custom Blackmer trailer package built to customer requirements. Custom built cart assembly (on pick up) and trailer assembly being pulled behind.

We really enjoy these type of challenges!
