Bronze Components for the Pump and Valve Industries

Industrial Pump Bronze Components


Since the beginning of time, there has been a need to push, suck or lift liquid from one place to another. Pumps provide the solution, dating back to 2000 BC when the Egyptians invented the shadoof. The physics of this first known pump was simple. A long suspended rod with a bucket on one end and a weight on the other was used to draw water from wells .

Through 4,000 years of evolution, the viscosity of the liquid has varied and so has the direction that it flows. The mission remains the same—to move liquid from Point A to Point B. Thanks to the revolutionary innovation, creativity and vision of the industry’s most forward-thinking people and companies, it doesn’t matter whether the liquid is water, peanut butter or oil—today there is a pump that will move it.

Pumps are one of the most important mechanical devices in all industrial applications. Whether moving a municipal water supply, drawing oil from the bottom of the ocean or siphoning aggressive fluids in chemical plants – modern society requires reliable, efficient pumping systems.

Many of the parts that keep these devices running are made of bronze.  From the lineshaft bearings to packing glands and seals, bronze components are vital to the operation of a variety of pumps.  Here at National Bronze Manufacturing we proudly manufacture many of these critical components that keep these devices working properly.  Follow the link below to view our new brochure outlining the bronze components that we make for the pump and valve industry
