Dedicated to Quality for Over 30 Years
CAT PUMPS was a pioneer in the car wash industry and has been the leading pump supplier for over 30 years. In 1968 our original triplex piston pump provided a dramatic improvement in service life. This new level of dependability and performance fueled the fire in a market that has seen tremendous growth since then.
CAT PUMPS current plunger design offers a unique reinforced seal design, special blend materials for unmatched seal life, and concentric, solid ceramic plungers for true alignment and an ultra smooth surface. Our seals last 3-4 times longer than the competitor's and provide the same long life after each servicing. Over 86% of the car wash operators use CAT PUMPS because their livelihood depends on their pump and only the most dependable pump will do.
CAT PUMPS versatiligy and long life make them the pump of choice for self service, touch free, automatic, roll-over, cloth and detail cleaning. Belt drive, direct drive, flexible coupling, clutch drive and complete power units offer flexibility for the equipment manufacturer and car wash owner.
Why Would You Pay More for a CAT PUMP?
The answer is simple. It will cost you far less to invest in a CAT PUMP. Your primary concerns for your car wash are profitability and return on your investment. There are many pumps available today that have similar ratings to CAT PUMPS that sell for less. This sounds good when you first pay out the dollars for your new pump, but this low price soon turns into high costs when the pump goes down and you can't wash cars. At CAT PUMPS, we could cut corners and reduce pump costs like other pump manufacturers, but we believe in producing only the highest quality, longest lasting pump possible.
CAT PUMPS are ISO9001 certified. The special materials and spring reinforced, lipped seal design offer longer life and performance. They eliminate lopsided wear. The extra steps to assure our plungers are concentric and specially surface polished further add to the life of the seals and assure the same performance is attained each time servicing is done. No diminished performance. These extras cost a little more, but translate into less servicing costs, less downtime, and a greater return on your investment. When you consider the initial cost along with the cost of maintenance, you will quickly see that CAT PUMPS offer the best value.

Lifetime Manifold Warranty

The 5CP plunger pumps also feature a new crankcase design, press-in style seal cases for easier servicing and the same time-proven Model 310 interchangeable valves, specially formulated seals and concentric, solid ceramic plungers.
Belt Drive -- Belt drive is the oldest and most flexible. The pulleys can be sized to provide the desired RPM required for the flow of the system. Belts provide a vibration cushion.
Direct Drive -- Special hollow shafted motors offer direct drive convenience and compact installations. Direct drive eliminates pulley and belt selection and periodic adjustment. The hardened shafts, key with set screw and special mounting flange offer much improved performance over earlier designs.
Flexible Coupling-Bell Housing Drive -- When using a standard motor, special 1725 RPM CAT PUMP models can be direct mounted with the use of a bell housing for alignment and flexible coupling for joining the pump and motor shaft. Special high temp, high RPM spyders offer a cushion during the repeated on/off operation to protect the system.
Clutch Drive -- Clutch drives take advantage of the belt drive concept, but have the added feature of disengaging the motor when the pump is not in use. This is ideal for intermittent use applications.
