FMC John Bean Piston Pumps: Built to Last

Posted by Sprayer Depot on Mon, Jan 18, 2016

FMC John Bean piston pumps have an all-star reputation as quality and reliable pumps that are FMC_John_Bean_pumps.jpgcapable of taking on some of the biggest spraying jobs. John Bean pumps were invented back in 1884 as a way to spray insecticide on the many fruit orchards in California. As the first to build a high pressure spray pump to deliver chemicals quickly and easily to large areas, John Bean pumps became so popular that soon a manufacturing plant was built to satisfy demand.

Tough Pumps

Today, FMC John Bean pumps are still used to spray all types of orchards. Additional uses include turf, tree, agricultural and pest control applications. Since its early days, a full line of  John Bean pumps has been added to the FMC John Bean product line. FMC now offers a broad array of John Bean high pressure piston and plunger reciprocation pumps within the industrial, oil and gas, core drilling and mining, sewer cleaning, and agricultural markets.

Piston and plunger pumps are characteristically high efficiency pumps with rated efficiencies of 85 percent to 90 percent and in some cases can achieve higher efficiency than rated!

Regular Maintenance Schedule

FMC John Bean Pumps are built with high quality standards, and when properly maintained, can last a very long time. It is important to have a regular maintenance schedule to ensure the pump runs efficiently.
