FMC Technologies' reciprocating pumps have provided exceptional performance and value since their introduction in 1884. As a pioneer and global leader in providing high-pressure fluid pumping solutions within a variety of markets, FMC Technologies offers a broad array of high pressure piston and plunger reciprocation pumps within the industrial, oil and gas, core drilling and mining, sewer cleaning, horizontal and vertical drilling, reverse osmosis and agricultural markets.
Since its inception, FMC Technologies has been known as a company that puts its customers first and keeps them ahead with engineered business solutions. This philosophy has led to a broad array of custom pump designs for the toughest of applications. By designing and engineering products with superior quality and reliability at a competitive price, FMC Technologies' customers are able to deliver added value and meet their market needs. This type of partnership has allowed FMC Technologies to set new standards in lowering overall cost of pump ownership for FMC Technologies global partners.
Piston and plunger pumps are characteristically high efficiency pumps with rated efficiencies of 85 percent to 90 percent and in some cases actual efficiency higher than rated. The high efficiency is due to the direct energy transfer directly to the fluid through the reciprocating action and positive displacement of the fluid.
With single stage centrifugal pumps' maximum efficiencies in the range of 60 percent to 70 percent at the optimal conditions, the reciprocating, positive displacement piston and plunger pumps becomes the choice for energy critical applications. The efficiency of multiple stage centrifugal pumps is reduced even more than single stage pumps.
