Blackhawk’s CleanHead Contained-Pump System™
Keeps Well Seals, Stuffing Boxes Clean & Dry

Airtight return is integrated
into all Blackhawk pumps

GLEN ELLYN, IL – To ensure that no below-ground liquid is present at or above the wellhead, Blackhawk Technology Company introduces a simple innovation to return any potential surface fluids back into the well or sump.

Blackhawk’s airtight CleanHead Contained-Pump System™, now integrated into the full line of Blackhawk piston pumps, provides an exit drain from the stuffing box back to the well casing – keeping cartridge seals and wellheads clean and dry if seals begin to wear. A CleanHead port is included in all new Blackhawk well seals.

All pump seals, regardless of material or manufacture, will wear over time. Rates vary by site and usage, chemistry of the fluid being pumped and back pressure from discharge header lines.

The new Blackhawk system suggests when stuffing-box seals need to be replaced, giving operators the opportunity to schedule servicing.

And because all Blackhawk driver mechanicals and power are above surface grade, maintenance is easier, faster and safer. No pump pulling is necessary.

Blackhawk’s pneumatic, electric and solar piston models pump virtually anything flowable and consistently outperform comparable pump styles.
