Universal Pumping is North America's leading supplier of high pressure Piston Membrane / Diaphragm Pumps and Vertical Ram Pumps from EMMERICH and EMS. Pumps for the most demanding applications including slurry removal and transport, filter press feeding, grit pumping and removal, de-sludging and more. We design pump systems for major manufacturers including General Motors, city and county municipal waste water management including City of Los Angeles and Watertown, New York, as well as the food and beverage industry, chemical, energy, steel and mining industries.

Positive Displacement Pumps

for most all aggressive and sensitive liquids, slurries, sludges and even some solids that have to move.

The EMS Ram Pump is single acting with either hydraulic or mechanical drive. The vertical Ram pump is designed for long life (50 plus years), low maintenance and optimum energy efficiency. This is the most cost-effective solution to pump difficult and abrasive slurries.

Every Josef Emmerich Pump is custom manufactured in Germany for each specific application. Emmerich Pumps are extremely high quality and we do not pursue projects where the “initial lowest capital cost” is the customer’s objective. With 70 years of manufacturing experience under our belt, our Piston Membrane/Diaphragm Pumps are “refined tools” for transporting the full gamut from sensitive foods & beverages and pharmaceuticals, to the most abrasive mining ores, gold, and everything in between.
