A Powerful Partnership for Obsolete and Troublesome Oil Pumps

Two trusted names in the industry have formed a powerful partnership for supporting diesel fuel and lube oil pumps. Leistritz, a global leader in the manufacturing of specialized screw pumps and technologies, has formed a powerful partnership in defeating obsolescence with Hydro.

Due to the age of pumps in the industry today, many become obsolete and unsupported by their manufacturers, while still actively in service. This poses safety issues. Through engineering and integrated manufacturing, Hydro can now meet your needs quickly, without any changes to your system. Quality assurance backed by ASME III and Z299 certifications.
