Becker Pumps: A Superior Standard of Pumps

Rotary Vane Pumps - Quality PumpsThere are a number of companies that make good quality pumps and that supply to Australia and beyond, but none quite makes the same kind of pump that Becker does. A company that holds itself to the highest standard in the industry, Becker produces top quality pumps that do more than just what they’re supposed to, but are also better for the environment and run more efficiently.

While normally specialising in mostly vacuum pumps and their accessories, Becker also produces other types of pumps and does so with the same quality in mind.

The most notable variety that we carry is their line of rotary vane pumps and they are prominent in their type by being different than the rest.

The rotary vane pumps by Becker that we carry are the oil-less, oil-flooded. There are variations of these including Variair and combined types. Some of these pumps run completely free of oil which makes them not only cleaner and easier to maintain, but also better overall for the environment.

They are also relatively quiet, unlike most other types, whose motors make a lot of noise. This makes them ideal for business settings. Very little maintenance is required of these pumps, making them the perfect choice for those who want it easier.

Becker pumps are relatively compact, which makes them conveniently able to fit into tighter spaces which many other pumps may not be able to.

Becker pumps are designed to have a long life and not corrode or be overtly damaged by the passage of time. This ensures that they will be around for many years to perform whatever action you need them to. This is remarkable in and of itself, but since they also maintain constant pressure and run very efficiently, these pumps are among the best.

We definitely recommend Becker pumps as some of the best in the field for pumps of all kinds, whether used domestically or in industrial settings.

Pump Strainers: Why They Are Important

The Perfect Filter

Importance of Pump StrainersThe primary function of a strainer in a pump system is to serve as a filter for the pump and the piping. This may seem like such a simple task but this component is not to be taken for granted. Although it is not always visible, over time, tiny sediments such as sand, dirt or grit can build up in the pipeline.

If there is nothing to catch this debris, not only will it contaminate whatever water or fluid you are trying to pump but it can also clog the pipes, making it difficult for anything to get through. To prevent this from happening, a good strainer should be in place to catch any unwanted elements.

Design and Maintenance

Because having a good strainer is so important, it is a good idea to make sure you have the right kind. Depending on the application, normally strainers with smaller holes are functionally better than larger ones because the smaller holes can catch smaller pieces of sediment, which ensures less debris enters the system which will affect the efficiency.

Whichever kind of strainer you decide to use, it is essential that you take care of it by cleaning it out regularly. Usually once a week is a good routine to get into when cleaning a strainer, this would also apply to a pool pump.

The Power of the Strainer

While a strainer is a simple addition to any type of pump, it is an essential component that keeps the whole system running smoothly. It prevents foreign particles from contaminating what you are pumping and helps keep the pipes clean and flowing smoothly.

Weekly maintenance is key for making sure this device keeps your quality pump great for a long time. For more information on our pumps and their components, call 1300 922 973.
