As a leading pumps company with progressively improving systems, we have the ability to cover virtually any pump process required across a manufacturing plant. This is exactly the case with the two FCA Chrysler manufacturing plants here in the Detroit area. Our division Gusher supplied the self-primers for the paint systems at both plants back in April. Now, there have been 20 vertical turbine pumps from our Process Systems, Inc. division installed on the water test booths at both the Jeep plant at Mack Ave. in Detroit as well as the Warren truck plant.
Construction activity is representative of the revival in U.S. automotive manufacturing considering the Jeep Cherokee plant is the first new automotive plant in Detroit since 1991. The Warren truck plant has been building trucks since 1938. This facility is nearing the end of a $1 billion renovation project for an extensive tooling and systems update. Twelve pumps were installed at the Jeep plant, and the remaining eight went in at the truck plant. All the pumps were installed on the plants’ water test systems. These booths simulate harsh weather conditions and test the effects of water on the cars and trucks the plants build.
All Process System, Inc. vertical turbine pumps are designed and manufactured to specific customer requirements to accommodate a wide range of flows and pressures. The pumps in this particular job range from 80 GPM at 45′ TDH to 440 GPM at 165’ TDH, simulating conditions from a light mist to torrential rain. A big benefit to vertical turbine pumps are the seamless design, eliminating the potential for leaking seals — one of the most common service items on most pumps.
