The company management and workforce, as well as their families, celebrated the occasion at the production facility in Euskirchen, Eifel region, Germany. In addition to this, all of the company’s customers were invited to join a competition to see who had the oldest pump that was still in operation. With a UMOR-type pump installed in 1951, an employee of a Swiss company won the prize – a Kindle ebook reader.
Bungartz’s special centrifugal pumps are often used for difficult media in explosive atmospheres, or for substances that have a tendency towards crystallisation or polymerisation. Since the company was founded in 1947, it has used tried-and-tested hydrodynamic shaft seal technology.
The self-regulating V-AN type pumps for pumping out of vacuums, low temperature distillation systems, or for the complete emptying of separators, containers and tanker trucks, are also in use worldwide. All horizontal and vertical pumps are dependable and safe to dry run, operate cavitation-free, and do not require any additional control technology. Bungartz claims that the comprehensive care-free principle of the pumps, which operate for years without encountering problems, consist of more than just the unconventional, robust and economical technology, as demonstrated by the Jubilee competition winner finding a pump dating back to 1951. Prior to installation, partners in the sales offices work with the employees of the design and production departments, as well as plant engineers or project engineers from the operator, to develop unique solutions.
