Fluid Pumps


Fluid pumps or industrial pumps are designed specifically to be used in harsh application areas. They move various materials, such as heavy chemical fluids, food, water, oil, petroleum, sludges, slurries, waste and even beer.

Every different type of commercial or industrial process might demand a separate fluid pump setup. Thus, you must use the correct type of fluid pump to handle the tasks with optimum energy efficiency, minimum downtime, and fluid contamination.


There are many fluid pump types available on the market, each with its own weaknesses and strengths. So, failing to choose the right pump can cause inefficient operations and, worse, equipment failures, safety issues and product loss.


So, it's essential to ensure that you have expert manufacturers who provide the best guidance on choosing the right products per your requirements. When it comes to selecting suitable fluid pumps, we've got you covered! Blackhawk most often recommends Grundfos Fluid Pumps based on their impressive service record and performance.

Grundfos Fluid Pumps Overview

Efficient and Energy-Saving Fluid Pumps from Grundfos

Focusing on energy efficiency is a crucial aspect of running any business and one of the hottest industry topics facing all teams. Energy costs directly impact the overall product output, no matter which industry you are based in.


One critical factor that plays a vital role in deciding the plant's overall energy efficiency is the optimum efficiency of your fluid pumps. The efficiency of pumps is defined as the ratio of the pump's output power to its input power. The output power refers to the amount of work the pump does, whereas the input power is the amount of energy the pump consumes to give that output. The less energy it uses, the higher the efficiency of the pump. Optimizing energy efficiency is crucial as it reduces the cost of the pump at which it operates and its environmental impact. The pump's efficiency is based on several factors, such as:

  • Physical properties of the fluids being pumped
  • The design and materials of the pump
  • Outside operating conditions of the pump's location
  • Drive system that powers the pump
  • The height of the suction lift

Furthermore, selecting newer models of fluid pumps is usually a better choice as they are equipped with the latest technology that helps them operate with less energy. Keeping the pumps lubricated and regularly checking the alignment also helps save energy. Also, keep your pump area clean and free of debris, as it will ensure the proper airflow required for energy-efficient pump operation.


Choosing pump manufacturers with a track record of providing energy-efficient pumps is always the best. This is why Blackhawk Equipment recommends Grundfos most often. A slight fluctuation in energy efficiency can cause a significant loss in your production. Therefore, always keep a pump's energy efficiency in mind whenever you procure new pumps and always buy from a reliable pump manufacturer that provides premium quality and energy-efficient pumps like Grundfos.

Selecting The Right Fluid Pump

Choosing the right pump for industrial or commercial applications is a crucial task. It directly impacts the performance of the system.


Each pump comes with different specifications, and each application requires many considerations to keep in mind. With a variety of different types and styles available, it might seem like a daunting task, but always ensure you keep these four considerations in mind while searching for the right pump:


The Construction Material of The Pump

Select your pump based on the pump's construction material's ability to withstand the chemical composition of your industry's fluids. Certain pumps come with specific regulatory standards, and that should always be addressed. Some common types of materials include bronze, stainless steel, and cast iron.


Properties of the Fluids

Remember to meticulously note the properties of the fluids while selecting the right pump. Some fluid properties put extra stress and bring the pump's efficiency down. For instance, processing liquids with solids, corrosive fluids, and heated fluids require different material treatments and internal pump components.


Availability and Power Demands

Nowadays, many pumps come in electrical and gas-powered varieties for mobile applications such as agriculture and construction sites. Not all fluid pumps are made to support portable usage, so always ensure you buy the right pump to suit the power demands. Along with considering the power source, select the pump based on its voltage as well as current constraints. Pumps with high horsepower tightly control the fluid pressure and thus need reliable and continuous access to a power source.


Fluid Pressure Levels

Different fluid pumps come with different mechanisms; one component that keeps changing is the fluid pressure. Friction, kinetic energy build-up, and elevation change the fluid's pressure levels. Therefore, while selecting a pump, pay attention to the pressurizing mechanisms, submersion of the pump, and the anticipated elevation.
