Dependable Industrial Pumping Equipment
PROVEN RELIABILITYOperation After 100 Years
The Mount Wilson Solar Observatory was first funded by the Carnegie Institution of Washington in 1904. The site is an astronomical observatory in Los Angeles, California and contains two historically important telescopes: the 60-inch Hale telescope built in 1908 and the 100-inch Hooker telescope. The facility is used for astronomical research and offers visitors guided tours. In 1911, A Deming Triplex pump with a 15 HP motor was installed to supply the pressure for the fire hydrant system. It operated continuously for an estimated 50 years until an entire system upgrade in the 1960’s obsoleted the pump. In 2008, there was a need for a backup firefighting unit while the new system was being serviced. The 1911 Deming Triplex pump was resurrected for the application. After routine servicing the pump operated without any issues. The Deming brand was the first pump line manufactured by Crane Pumps & Systems and offers a full line of highly regarded municipal and industrial pumps today.
Many Deming pumps operate continuously for over 30 years before being replaced.
