Knowing Your Pump Brand, Model and Size is Important

by | Jun 3, 2016 | Tools and Equipment

There are definite benefits to owning an ANSI pump.  One is being able to buy parts or a replacement part from any dealer you want.  Just as if you went to the auto parts store for a part you would need to know the make, model, and year of your vehicle. With a pump, you need to know your pump brand, size, and model to be sure that the parts you buy will work in your existing pump.

Parts Might not be Compatible

The pump unit of an ANSI pump might be compatible between brands, but there is nothing to say that the individual parts making up the pump are interchangeable.  Do some research before you buy a replacement part and be 100% sure that it will work with your pump. Vendor model numbers are how you can tell if you are getting an ANSI pump.  You also need to pay very close attention to any letters or suffixes on the end of the model number.  It could mean that it is a special model with parts that might not work with any other models available.  You will find that there are parts that do work with many of the models, most notably the power end.

The Pumps Come in Different Sizes

Since the pumps come in differing sizes it only stands to reason that replacement parts will as well.  Pumps sizes range from STX to XLTX like small, medium, large and extra-large.  Every size in the line has an impeller and casing.  When it comes to the rear cover and adapter, they can be shared by the sizes.   If you need new ANSI pumps in Houston, TX, or replacement parts, Flow-Tech Industries can meet all your needs in that department.
