Accordingly our products are built to be reliable, durable and of the highest quality in the most demanding of applications because we know people are counting on us!
Agriculture encompasses all the activities required to create, plant, and harvest food. Our products support this activity from blowing grain into silos, extracting precious milk from cows with vacuum systems, providing the fuel for farm equipment as well as the fertilizer and pesticides to grow healthy plants. Our products are also integrated into OEM equipment that dispenses chemicals for pest control and lubrication applications for agricultural machinery.
The chemical market involves all the processes required to create and produce the substances that are so critical to our well being. Our products are used mostly for the pumping, metering, dosing, blending, and injecting of chemicals to create polymers, resins, paints, coatings, adhesives, sealants, rubber and plastic compounds, pulp and paper chemicals, and surfactants used in automotive, construction, consumer and personal care products. Our products are also used for chemical processing in petroleum production and refineries with applications ranging from vapor recovery, gas conveying, distillation of adhesives and sealants, conveyance of plastic pellets, and vacuum forming.
Shelter is one of the cornerstones of human life. Therefore we support the equipment used in creating the structures that protect us from the elements. For example, our fuel pumps are critical in providing energy to construction equipment to perform their very important tasks. We design and manufacture custom product integrated into the complex equipment required for construction. We are also a key supplier to OEM equipment used for cooling systems for commercial and professional structures.
The energy market is a huge market that includes all sources of energy (E.g. wind, solar, petroleum, coal, natural gas) and the related identification, creation, extraction, and distribution. For example, we manufacture lubrication pumps that are integrated into large core drilling machines used in exploration, large oil field pumps used for extraction, and large pumps and compressors used to move oil and gas after extraction. We manufacture pumps that are used in the processing of crude into more valuable distillates and refined lubricants. Our fuel pumps and meters transfer/monitor gasoline and diesel fuel at the point of use in multiple markets. Our vacuum systems are used in the creation of wafers for solar panels, flue gas desulphurization, coal bed methane extraction, land fill gas recovery, and steam recompression. Our lubrication pumps are used on large gear boxes used in wind turbines and we make process pumps used in the creation of biofuels.
Once the food has been initially created and harvested it is ready to be prepared for consumption. Our products provide vacuum systems for packaging and pumps and blowers for food processing. Specifically, our pumps are used for chocolate, soybean oil, corn syrup, peanut butter, molasses, as well as other oils and flavorings used in the food and beverage market. Our products are also integrated into OEM equipment responsible for refrigeration, food dispensing, packaging, and marking equipment. Segments include food and beverage processing and the manufacturing of milk and dairy products with applications ranging from pneumatic conveyance of grains and dog food, flavor and fragrance distillation, freeze drying, maple syrup extraction, and milking.
This market involves all the medications and equipment required to return us to a healthy state. We integrate our products into equipment that supports precise diagnosis, which is key in fighting heart disease, cancer, and other infectious and autoimmune diseases. We make pumps for cooling imaging equipment and surgical devices as well as pumps for dosing reagents critical for blood and tissue analysis.
Although this market is primarily driven by the manufacture of vehicles, buses, and trucks, we choose to not be involved in the creation of these products but more with the equipment the trucks require once they arrive at the point of use. For example, our blowers are on trucks involved in natural gas extraction via frack sand and dilute phase conveying of dry bulk goods such as sand, grain, and cement. Another example is how our vacuum products are used on trucks involved in carpet cleaning. Our products are also integrated into refrigeration systems used to transport perishable items.
Another key market for sustaining human life is water and waste water treatment. Our pumps are used for metering chemicals for drinking water purification as well as disinfection and odor control for wastewater treatment.
