Tuthill Corporation Products

Tuthill technical expertise and support provides customers with solutions for pumping applications that are difficult or complex.

  • Lubrications Pumps
  • Magnetically Coupled
  • Process Pump



Tuthill GlobalGear and HD pumps are suitable for pumping asphalt and are used in many asphalt applications, including bulk transfer, loading/unloading of tankers, (highway and rail types), transferring from main storage-tank to production tanks, feeding of production installation, e.g. production of roof shingles, and mobile road repair equipment.

In most applications asphalt is pumped at temperatures of 270 ºF to 400 ºF to reduce the viscosity (100 to 7500cPs) and ease processing. To maximize efficiency of pumps in asphalt service, Tuthill has incorporated a range of options that make our pumps ideal for various asphalt applications.

Automotive Fuel Injection Cleaning

The automotive fuel injection cleaning machine manufacturers typically use Tuthill Miniature Magnetically Coupled External Gear Pumps. The Tuthill pumps temporarily replace the vehicle fuel pump and supply the gasoline or diesel fuel mixed with cleaning agents. The pumps are driven by a 12 volt DC motor powered by the vehicle engine battery making the machines portable.

Polyphenylene sulfide engineered plastic and 316 stainless steel construction is chemically compatible with the fuels and additives. The Tuthill Miniature Magnetically Coupled External Gear Pumps are ideal for fuel injection cleaning machines due to their leak free design, compact size, long life, smooth flow, reversing capability, high efficiency, and high-pressure capability.

Box Corrugation

Corrugating boxes are produced by sandwiching a central filling of fibre paper. The outer fibre papers are then glued to the peaks and valleys of the filling, using corn, wheat, or potato starch-based adhesives. Leakage, short seal life, and viscosity thinning are all common problems with handling starch adhesives.

The GlobalGear® series pump is a proven performer in this application, effectively addressing all of these challenges. Superior sealing technology and pump design withstand pressure spikes and ensure long seal and component life.

Sodium Hypochlorite for Wastewater Treatment

Our Magnetically Coupled Positive Displacement External Gear Pumps are designed with accuracy in mind. The metering benefits include speed regulated flow control and utilization of standard motors and controllers. The flow through design does not trap gasses associated with vapor locking and therefore eliminates discrepancies in accuracy or pump shut down.

The W Series Pump is effective for metering sodium hypochlorite for wastewater treatment with an accuracy of better than 1%.

Tuthill Corporation Markets


Agriculture encompasses all the activities required to create, plant, and harvest food. Our products support this activity through lubrication and chemicals used. Our products are integrated into OEM equipment that dispenses chemicals for pest control and lubrication applications for agriculture machinery.


The chemical market involves all the processes required to create and produce the substances that are so critical to our well being. Our products are used for the transfer, blending, and metering of chemicals to create polymers, resins, paints, coatings, adhesives, sealants, rubber and plastic compounds, pulp and paper chemicals, and surfactants used in Automotive, Construction, Consumer and Personal Care products.


Shelter is one of the cornerstones of human life. Therefore we support the equipment used in creating the structures that protect us from the elements. For example, our pumps are critical in providing energy, lubrication, and temperature control to construction equipment. We design and manufacture custom product integrated into the complex equipment required for construction. We are also a key supplier to OEM equipment used for cooling systems for commercial and professional structures.

Consumer Goods and Services

Pumps for commercial equipment including but not limited to oil filtration systems, fuel oil delivery and burner feed systems, lubrication systems, ink jet printers, paint blending systems, silicon chip manufacturing support systems, hydraulic fluid cooling systems, cranes, water purification systems, reverse osmosis systems, automotive service power flush package systems, automotive fill systems, polyurethane foam manufacturing systems, incineration burner feed systems, waste oil collection systems, chemical dosing, dispensing and metering systems.

Energy and Power

The energy market is a huge market that includes all sources of energy (e.g. wind, solar, petroleum, coal, natural gas) and the related identification, creation, extraction, and distribution. For example, we manufacture lubrication pumps that are integrated into large core drilling machines used in exploration, large oil field pumps used for extraction, as well large pumps and compressors used to move oil and gas after extraction.

We manufacture pumps that are used in the processing of crude oil into more valuable distillates and refined lubricants. Our pumps also transfer/process many of these liquids through point of use in multiple markets. Supporting renewable energy, our pumps are used in the creation of wafers for solar panels, used on large gear boxes in wind turbines, and we manufacture process pumps used in the creation of biofuels.

Food and Beverage

Once the food has been initially created and harvested, it is ready to be prepared for consumption. Our products are used in food processing. Specifically, for chocolate, soybean oil, corn syrup, peanut butter, molasses, as well as other oils and flavorings used in the food and beverage market. Our products are also integrated into OEM equipment responsible for refrigeration, food dispensing, as well as packaging and marking equipment.


On the cooling side of HVAC, Tuthill Pump plays a major supporting role. At the heart of every refrigeration system is a compressor. The compressor serves to compress refrigerants, and expanding compressed refrigerant is the mechanism by which heat is absorbed. Larger compressors require a lubrication pump to provide forced lubrication for the bearings and seals of the compressor. Tuthill is a leading supplier of lubrication pumps for the major refrigeration system packagers in the HVAC industry.

On the heating side of HVAC, Tuthill Pump is a leading supplier of fuel oil transfer pumps and fuel oil burner feed pumps for fuel oil fired boilers and furnaces.

Industrial Equipment

Pumps for industrial and commercial machinery including compressor systems, power transmissions, turbine generator sets, commercial refrigeration, and machine tools.

Tuthill lubrication pumps are known for durability, and often last for decades before requiring replacement.

Medical Equipment

This market involves all the medications and equipment required to return us to a healthy state. We integrate our products into equipment that supports precise diagnosis, which is key in fighting heart disease, cancer, and other infectious and autoimmune diseases. We make pumps for cooling imaging equipment and surgical devices, sterilization of kidney dialysis machines, as well as pumps for dosing reagents critical for blood and tissue analysis.


This market is primarily driven by the manufacture of vehicles, buses, and trucks. We choose to be involved more with the equipment and aftermarket heavy duty accessories these vehicles are equipped with. Some examples would be OEM pumps for refrigeration units (used to transport perishable items), gear box lube systems, heavy duty axle lube systems and other transport support systems.

Water and Wastewater Treatment

Another key market for sustaining human life is water and waste water treatment. Our pumps are used for metering chemicals for drinking water purification as well as disinfection and odor control for wastewater treatment plants.
