Test Facility

We welcome 3rd Party Test Inquiries: testlabs@pumpworks.com

PumpWorks provides pump performance and mechanical testing at our manufacturing plants in Tyler, Shreveport and Houston. We utilize state-of-the-art monitoring and data collection software to test across the pump’s operating region.

We utilize custom designed PLC based automated pump testing software (APTS) that allows all system parameters to be monitored and controlled from a central control station, thus achieving and maintaining specific operating conditions. This enables data from calibrated precision electronic sensors to be collected and recorded for use in determining pump performance.
