Wright Flow Technologies

Wright Flow Technologies, the manufacturer of hygienic rotary lobe & circumferential piston pumps, is now known as Viking Pump Hygienic effective officially from the 11th of March 2022.

The good news for existing customers and users of these hygienic pump ranges is that only the manufacturer name has changed – the products have NOT changed in any way. The same pumps, built to the same high standards by the same people under the same ownership (IDEX Corporation) continue to be available under the new banner of Viking Pump Hygienic.

While the company has a new name, much has remained as it was before. The locations, the people, the processes and the products remain unchanged while the rebranding of the hygienic pump ranges under the long-established Viking Pump name strengthens the future of the brand worldwide.

BestPump Ltd has continuously represented the brand and distributed their hygienic pumps and component parts in the UK since we were founded back in the year 2000.

How BestPump Fits in

We were the original UK distributor of Wrightech (a Waukesha pump interchangeable spare parts business formed by former employees of the Waukesha Cherry Burrell company) and, when Wrightech evolved into Wright Pump and began manufacturing of circumferential piston pumps that were interchangeable with the Waukesha Universal pumps series, we were the original UK distributor of the Wright Pump TRA10 & TRA20 circumferential piston pump ranges.

So, we at BestPump look forward to an exciting partnership with Viking Pump Hygienic and continue to supply and support the below ranges of hygienic pumps.
