The Right Pump for the Job

For engine block and head cleaning/de-burring, the Hammelmann HDP40 or HDP70 pump series are the popular choice based on the required performance parameters. Other popular surface preparation applications such as skid cleaning, dolly cleaning, conveyor cleaning, and paint shop grid and walkway cleaning generally use the more powerful HDP120 series. All three series of pump are from the same family of Hammelmann reciprocating plunger pumps. They feature long service intervals and are known for their reliability.
