Innovative gaskets for axially split pumps for applications >60 bar


We are always looking to improve our products and make our pumps more efficient and easier to handle for our customers. 

Together with DONIT and the University of Munich for Applied Sciences, we are working on an optimized gasket material and an optimized design of the gaskets for axially split pumps.

In the right combination, this new gasket lowers and prevents much of the secondary flow and therefore it will lower the hydrodynamic losses.

Due to the new design, also the handling for our customers is much easier and the replacement can be executed much faster.

The picture shows our expert team at the VALVE WORLD EXPO in Düsseldorf together with DONIT, PLM group BB and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Robert Meier-Staude from the Munich University for Applied Sciences. The picture also shows a ZM pump supplied by Ruhrpumpen for this exhibition.


Ruhrpumpen inaugurates its first Service Center in northwestern Argentina.

The formal opening of our new Service Center in San Salvador de Jujuy, Argentina, took place last Wednesday, November 2nd, 2022. The event was attended by the mayor of the city and customers from various industries, but especially from the mining sector. The main purpose of this new Service Center is to provide quick and direct support to our customers in the lithium development and extraction industry.

With the opening of this new facility, Ruhrpumpen reaffirms its commitment to be closer to customers and become their supplier of choice.




Lean MEG injection is critical for Natural Gas extraction & requires a rugged pump capable of 24/7 operation at low capacity/very high pressure (> 400 bar). The RDP Pumps design, on the photos model 150/47, focuses on durability featuring a recycled fluid flushing system to cool plunger packings whilst avoiding harmful contamination. Reliability is enhanced with maintenance free pulsation dampers on suction and discharge.



Our Quick Ship Program now also available for our VSP Pump Model

Holiday-related fires blamed for over $300 million in property damage in the US; NFPA urges caution


National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) urges the public to be extra cautious this holiday season to prevent house fires.

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are among the leading days of the year for house fires in the United States, a NFPA spokesperson informed.

“December is a leading month for home fires, in large part because many of the activities we engage in during the holiday season reflect leading causes of home fires year-round,” NFPA Vice President of Outreach and Advocacy Lorraine Carli said.

“Plus, as colder temperatures impact much of the country, use of heating equipment increases significantly,” Carli continued.

Christmas Trees were one of the main sources of house fires.

An estimated average of 160 house fires involving Christmas trees caused two civilian deaths and $12 million in property damage per year between 2016 and 2020, the spokesperson said.

Of those tree fires, nearly one in five were stated by decorative lights, the spokesperson said.

Cooking was the leading cause of house fires

Cooking caused a reported 49 percent of house fires and was the second-leading cause of house fire deaths, the spokesperson said.

Unattended cooking was the lead cause of these types of house fires, the spokesperson said.

“By knowing where potential fire hazards exist and taking some basic safety precautions to prevent them, people can enjoy a festive, fire-free holiday season,” said Carli.





Ruhrpumpen will supply pumps for a new aqueduct that will bring water to more than 6 million people in Mexico's second largest city

Ruhrpumpen was awarded a contract to supply 30 pumps (totaling 60,000 hp) to be installed in the "El Cuchillo II" new aqueduct that will double the water supply from El Cuchillo Dam to the city of Monterrey, Mexico. The Monterrey metropolitan area is the second largest metropolitan area in Mexico and has experienced devasting drought conditions this past year.


El Cuchillo Dam (located approximately 60 miles northeast of Monterrey) is one of the largest dams in the northern part of Mexico and serves as one of Monterey's main water reservoirs.

Although this dam has enough water to supply Monterrey for two years, the existing aqueduct is limited in capacity and cannot cover the deficit left by the other water reservoirs which have reached the bottom of their basins. Therefore, investing in a secondary aqueduct is one of the Mexican government's top priorities to meet the city's water demand.

The aqueduct is expected to be ready in a record time of 8 to 10 months. The pumps are a critical part of this project as they move water through the aqueduct. Due to the importance of the pumps, on September 4th the governor of the state of Nuevo Leon (along with other government dignitaries) visited the Ruhrpumpen plant (located in the municipality of Garcia, Nuevo Leon) to officially supervise the launch of the Ruhrpumpen project to manufacture these pumps.

Ruhrpumpen is proud to participate in this great project that will bring water to the millions of families in our home city!

This is how a Fire System works in an aircraft hangar

In Ruhrpumpen Fire Division our goal is to protect lives and goods from our customers all around the world.

By regulation (NFPA 11), aircraft hangars are required to use a foam fire suppression system to extinguish a fire correctly and in a timely manner.

Foam fire suppression systems extinguish a fire by cooling and separating fuel from oxygen. In more technical terms, the systems are used to “cool the fire and coat the fuel that the fire consumes to prevent contact with oxygen and reduce any combustion ability.


Although Ruhrpumpen does not manufacture foam suppression systems, our fire pumps are crucial to the operation of these systems because without water, their operation would be impossible.

It is important to point out that a foam suppression system is made up of foam concentrate, water, and air that mixes to create a blanket of foam that protects the flammable fuel from combusting.

In this edition of our monthly newsletter, we want to show you how a foam system works and there is nothing better to do so than the pictures of the latest tests carried out by one of our business partners.

Did you know that...

America’s deadliest fire took place April 27, 1865, aboard the steamship Sultana. Among other passengers were 1,500 recently released Union prisoners traveling home up the Mississippi when the boilers exploded. The ship was six times over capacity, which helps explain the death toll of 1,547.
