Pentair's Water Treatment business has been appointed the exclusive distributor of T&T-brand pumps for reverse osmosis (RO) water purification applications. Based in Fairmont, W.Va., T&T Pumps is a leading brand of high performance pumps used in RO applications.
"Pentair Water Treatment already provides the global RO water purification market with a broad product line, including CodeLine membrane housings, Fleck control valves and Structural pressure vessels. With the addition of T&T pumps, we now have a product offering that is second to none. T&T, meanwhile, will realize the benefits of our broad worldwide distribution network," said Richard J. Cathcart, president and COO of Pentair's Water Technologies Group.
According to Pentair, T&T's stainless steel multi-stage pumps expands Pentair's product offering for RO water purification. The structure of the distribution partnership calls for Pentair to market and sell T&T-made pumps in global water treatment markets, while T&T will continue to provide customer service and technical support for their products.
"T&T pumps have been proven in a variety of applications -- from three miles underground in the harsh conditions of the mining industry, to the ultra clean environment of the semiconductor industry," says Jim Stephens, director of Industrial/Municipal Markets for Pentair Water Treatment. "The leading manufacturers of RO equipment prefer T&T pumps because of their performance, reliability and low maintenance cost. Having T&T pumps in our water purification product line gives Pentair Water Treatment a strong competitive advantage."
