The best cost effective air operated oil pumps- and why you agree.


Thank you for coming back to the blog, today is all about the best performance air operated oil lube pumps that you will find in our industry.  These oil transfer solutions have become a corner stone for TECALEMIT,  so when we set out to bring the best cost effective air operated oil pumps, there were a few critical marks that we needed to hit.

#1- Like all products within our portfolio, this product had to be good looking and easy to handle. We set out to make sure that this pump was not bulk and heavy to handle. 

#2- Second, we needed to make sure that for the majority of the work that these pumps are placed under, the long term reliability had to impress. In over the last 18 months of use, these packages have been put through actual field testing with amazing results. This is the second point that makes this oil pump the best value in air operated oil pumps.

#3- Less moving parts.  These pumps have a single piston inside of them, making them fully mechanical and robust.  Minimal moving parts have been a great talking point at the early start and something that is appealing to the industry. 

#4- The fourth and last point is the price. The performance-value ratio that TECALEMIT brings to the industry is by far the best looking package, backed up by proven reliability, and sealed with a great initial price point, making them the best cost effective air operated oil pumps- and why you agree.

An Inside Look: The People Behind Slim Line Oil Tanks

In 1951 James “Jimmy” Newberry began his journey in manufacturing tank trucks and steel storage tanks. Newberry was a founding member of the Petroleum Equipment Institute (PEI). As a result of his determination, drive, and new thinking, Newberry became known as “The Father of the PEI.” The heritage, reputation and commitment to quality that Newberry Tanks represents is the reason why we partnered with them in creating our lube oil tank packages. We believe in giving our customers the best.


Today, we partner with Newberry Tanks on their “New Thinking” initiative. The new slim line oil tanks, that promise true performance value, are part of our oil lube tank packages, because of the innovative design that we stand behind. We met with James Fischer, Vice President of Sales at Newberry Tanks for a Q&A on the subject. In this short Q&A, we are giving you the second side of these great packages: the Slim Line 280 and 500 gallon oil tanks, and the people behind it. We couldn’t be more thrilled about this partnership, that enables us to bring this premium product to you.

Lube Oil Tank Packages: A History of Innovation


Lube oil tank packages, that we know today, have seen a history of innovation that began in the mid-century. While the US sector of Tecalemit is fairly young, the beginnings of Tecalemit Germany and our involvement in the oil industry, dates back to the first oil hand pumps of the 1940’s and 1950’s. The early founders shaped the culture and heritage of our company, passing down the sense of pride that comes with manufacturing innovative products for oil. Our heritage includes the people working hard on the Tecalemit team today, as their fathers and grandfathers worked in the factories before them.
