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

Tuthill provides lubrication pumps for the major refrigeration system packagers. Tuthill works closely with refrigeration system package OEM'S to meet the requirements of the system package. Tuthill lubrication pumps are known for durability, and often last for decades before requiring replacement.
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.
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.
