PeopleFlo Manufacturing announced the North American launch of a revolutionary new sealless gear pump called EnviroGear at the 23rd International Pump Users Symposium in Houston, Texas.

Clark Shafer, VP Customer Services, explains EnviroGear

Starting in 2005, a select group of chemical and food companies such as DuPont, PPG, Cargill, HB Fuller, BASF and 3M has purchased and used the EnviroGear pump with success. Now PeopleFlo is pleased to introduce EnviroGear to a broad base of North American customers in the chemical, petrochemical and food processing markets.

“The feedback from our initial set of customers has been overwhelmingly positive. These customers value EnviroGear’s design features that enable them to lower maintenance costs and environmental costs. In addition, these customers value the ability of PeopleFlo to deliver product in record time,” said William Blankemeier, President of PeopleFlo. “Now we are positioned to rapidly broaden our North American customer base.”

The EnvrioGear product launch will be built around a series of marketing campaigns that include the introduction of a new web site ( and involve trade advertising, trade shows, public relations and direct mail programs.

Designed from the ground up, PeopleFlo’s EnviroGear “zero leakage” pumps eliminate the dynamic shaft seal and therefore, eliminate problems caused by shaft seal leakage. “Increasingly, customers in the industrial process markets are looking to drive down maintenance costs which can account for 50% of total life-cycle costs,” said Clark Shafer, VP Customer Services at PeopleFlo. “At the same time, they are under pressure to eliminate pump leakage that causes safety or housekeeping problems.”
