Blackhawk Technology Co., originator and No. 1 provider of piston-pumping solutions for well-based applications, this month is launching its next generation website to better assist a broad range of pumping customers at

"Because our piston pumps are the most rugged and reliable in the industry, we are in a unique position to handle the toughest pumping challenges, including landfill leachate, gas-well dewatering, condensate-recovery sump, petrochemical, refinery, manufactured gas and groundwater remediation," said Mark Bertane, Blackhawk president. "Our new website makes it even easier for customers to find what they need for cost-effective product choices."

In addition to simple and intuitive clicks to Blackhawk products, applications, resources, hot news and testimonials, the site offers a short video highlighting onsite operations. There is also an animated illustration showing the simple technology of how top-head-drive piston pumps work – with the motor safely and cleanly above the wellhead. Advantages over older technology include easy service and repair, fully adjustable flow rates, pumping down to the suction of the pump (no wasted head over the pump) and, because no high pressure enters the well, elimination of fugitive emissions.

Blackhawk pumps any liquid, in any environment, at any depth or angle, and may be instrumental in qualifying certain customers of federal Renewable Energy Certificates.
