FMC Technologies offers a complete line of piston pumps (Bean pumps) in sizes ranging from 3 to 450 HP, and achieving pressures to 3,000 psi (207 bar) and flows to 905 gpm (3,168 lpm). FMC Technologies’ Bean piston pumps deliver outstanding value and performance for a variety of applications.
The Bean piston pump design continues the FMC Technologies tradition of putting customers first and keeping them ahead with engineered solutions. The Bean pump lowers the overall cost of pump ownership for our partners’ customers by developing a win-win strategy. The Bean pump is designed to do more (increase performance) with less (wearable items). Continuing on this theme to lower overall operating pump cost, FMC Technologies has increased the volumetric efficiency, material components and front access of their Bean pump fluid chambers. The “HVE” feature increases the pump’s priming characteristic without increasing the size (added cost) of a feed pump.
Increases in component technology have enhanced the Bean pump product line. By working directly with its partners, FMC Technologies has customized the pump’s component technology and serviceability to meet their customers’ requirements. The customization in component technology per application increases the hours of operation per component. The design of our pump’s front piston cover provides quick access to allow for a decrease in time to service. This combination of technology and design has increased our partners uptime while decreasing their downtime, life cycle cost and cost of pump ownership.
