Rebuilt vs. Refurbished vs. Reconditioned Centrifugal and Reciprocating Industrial Pumps

Is there a difference between rebuilt, refurbished, or reconditioned? One guy thinks that refurbished is a higher grade than rebuilt and the next guy thinks exactly the opposite, so I don’t know if I actually have the answer” Is our President Don Toews’ initial response when asked about the ongoing debate within the used equipment industry. He is quick to point out that if it is done right the only difference between a new and used piece of equipment is one starts with molten liquid steel and one with solid steel… and if you can’t get it back to new condition don’t sell it as such. Here are some ways to understand what should be done to restore a pump and what to expect when buying used. Read More

Moving & Managing Water & Oil On Fracking Sites - Centrifugal Pumps & Positive Displacement Quintuplex Pumps

Fracking is now a key part of the oil and gas industry with thousands of fracking sites across North America. President of Power Zone Equipment Don Toews sat down with The Crownsmen Podcast to explain Power Zones Equipment’s role in this fast growing sector. Because fracking is typically done at very high pressure, Positive Displacement Quintuplex Pumps are the most commonly used at fracking sites. However the frack water supply is done with centrifugal pumps because you are required to move the water right to the pumping site.

New Pump Smell

By Alan Parsons
Business Development Manager

 

I buy used cars.  My frugal self just can’t part with the extra money it takes to get from “serves my needs well” to “two digits on the odometer”.  I can research the history, the year, and model of the car to see how much maintenance they take compared to others.  And, I can afford more car.
