Industrial Duty Pumps & Accessories for Mass Transit Wash Applications
A mass transit system needs to promote a clean, healthy environment for its riders, which will increase usage by giving passengers a more friendly atmosphere.
Regular washing of mass transit vehicles improves aesthetics and helps with routine maintenance. Removing dirt and build up from under buses increases parts longevity and makes routine maintenance much easier. In areas where road salt is used during winter months, thorough cleaning is vital for removing salt build up on and under the buses.
Bus washes can run non-stop and rely on dependable equipment to maintain the rigorous pace.
The washes use high pressure for cleaning and/or rinsing and operate at 1,000 - 2,000 PSI. The flow required depends on the type of wash from 5 GPM for a self-serve gun to 70 GPM for a touch-free automatic.
Our pumps are designed for continuous duty to keep your washing system running 24/7.

For over 40 years, Cat Pumps has been providing the longest-lasting reciprocating triplex piston pumps available. This design allows for a cost-effective pump to achieve high efficiency and low pulsation. The design of the piston pump moves the fluid continually in one, smooth forward direction. This allows greater suction capabilities and reduces the risk of cavitation
Cat Pumps offers a line of centrifugal pumps that complements our piston and plunger pump product line. These pumps offer solutions to high-flow, low-pressure pumping needs. The pump housings are made of bulge formed 304 stainless steel that is stronger, lighter, more durable and more cost-effective than conventional cast iron pumps.
Cat Pumps offers a complete line of stainless steel pumps to meet the demands of many industrial applications. Available as 304, 316 and duplex stainless steel, these pumps are stock items at Cat Pumps and offer a wide variety of flow and pressure ranges: 0.13 - 240 GPM, and 100 - 10,000 PSI. The stainless steel pumps offer superior corrosion resistance, strength and long life in the applications where aggressive liquids are being pumped.
Cat Pumps' flush pumps feature a ported inlet manifold that permits an external flush liquid to circulate between the low- and high-pressure seals. Flush pumps are used for low-lubricity liquids and high-temperature applications. The seal flush will greatly increase the life of the seals in those applications. Flush pumps are available in brass and 316 stainless steel, and in performance ranges of 0.5 - 60 GPM and 100 - 7000 PSI.
For over 20 years, Cat Pumps has been providing liquid CO2 pumping solutions.

Triethylene glycol (TEG) dehydration is the most common method of removing water from natural gas. The TEG can be up to 240 F, which is very demanding on the components within the system. Cat Pumps' specially-modified pumps using a proprietary seal design are engineered to run in the most demanding and heavily-used dehydration systems.
High-temperature liquids place extraordinary demands on system components, especially the pump. Pre-mature pump failure can lead to production downtime, added maintenance costs, damaged final product and increased personnel hazards. Avoid potential problems by counting on Cat Pumps' field-proven technology for your high-temperature applications.
Cat Pumps offers a complete line of nickel aluminum bronze pumps to meet industry demands. These pumps are frequently found in oilfield and reverse osmosis applications throughout the world.

Cat Pumps' direct-drive pumps offer a compact and cost-effective pump mounting, and are available for electric and engine drives. This option allows for easy installation with the pump mounting directly to the motor or engine.
Cat Pumps offers a range of belt-driven pumps from 0.13 GPM up to 240 GPM. Belt-drive is a very popular option because of the flow flexibility given within pulley ratios. Using a belt-drive isolates the pump from the heat and vibration of the motor or engine driving the pump. The belt also isolates shock from an engine or motor on start up, which can put excess wear on the crankshaft and drive end components. Belt-drive pumps give the flexibility of changing pump flow by a simple pulley change.
Cat Pumps' gearbox pumps are long-lasting direct-drive pumps that can be mounted on standard gas or diesel engines, running up to 24 HP. The gearbox drive has a 2 to 1 ratio allowing the pump to run at half the speed of the engine. This configuration provides a compact assembly without running the pump at high engine RPM's. The gearbox is completely sealed making them ideal to handle a variety of environmental conditions including rain, dust, humidity and anything else mother nature throws at it. Cat Pumps' gearbox pumps are commonly found on commercial-duty pressure washers and designed for continuous duty use.

Field-Proven Quality, Dependability, Long Life
Dedication to quality has been the foundation of Cat Pumps philosophy since first opening our doors in 1968. From initial design to materials and manufacturing, the central focus will always be providing the highest quality products possible to better serve our customers.
A superior product always begins with a superior design. From the very beginning, our first triplex reciprocating piston pumps introduced two revolutionary design changes to the high pressure pump industry, our patented sleeved-piston rod and our UNFLOW design concept. The sleeved piston rods permit servicing from the wet-end of the piston pumps, drastically slashing service time, eliminating expensive replacement parts and reducing overall maintenance costs. The UNIFLOW design of the piston pumps delivers a continuous, smooth forward liquid flow through the pump and offers strong suction capabilities.
To increase over-all life of our pumps, we have spent significant time and resources researching each individual component. Our proprietary spring reinforced, special lipped seal design offers 3-4 times the life than other seals available in the market place, while eliminating the need for packing adjustment. Components such as our concentric solid ceramics plungers, high strength connecting rods and oversized bearings are designed to withstand the most punishing applications, repeated cycles and continuous-duty operation.
Even a flawless design can prove inferior without the use of quality materials. Over the years our product line has expanded to include materials such as:
- 3150 Chrome-moly
- Nickel Aluminum Bronze
- Duplex Alloy
- High Strength TNM Alloy
- W770 Alloy
The use of all of these different materials ensure that we have a product available to provide the highest level of resistance to corrosion and wear, even in the most harsh environment.
We are also the only triplex, positive displacement pump manufacturer to offer concentric, solid ceramic plungers. Our concentric high density, polished surface have proven to withstand harsh pumping conditions as well as greatly enhance seal life. Our seals are made of a proprietary special blend material that provides unsurpassed quality in the marketplace. We also offer other special blend seal materials to meet any application need.
Cat Pumps manufacturing facility is ISO 9001 certified. We make use of the latest technologies and computer animated machining equipment to ensure each product is of the highest possible quality. We demand closely held tolerances and maintain a rigorous quality assurance program to guarantee a consistent quality product each time.
Each individual pump is factory flow and pressure tested as a final step in our quality process. We frequently take pumps from inventory and life test to ensure that each delivery meets Cat Pumps Quality standards.
These quality components and processes have provided optimum pump life of Cat Pumps’ products since the very beginning, earning us the reputation as “the pumps with nine lives”. Our heavy-duty industrial quality is evident in pumps that were installed 20-30 years ago still running today. Today we are still striving to improve our products and work closely with OEM's and specialty markets to incorporate custom features, tailored to fit your application needs.
