R-B Pump, Inc. was established in 1980 in Baxley, Georgia.  Our specialty is custom-made pumps.  Since inception, over five thousand pumps have been designed and manufactured, and are all in service.
 

I.  FLOOD PROTECTION PUMPS
We serve municipalities, major airports, and U.S. Army Corps. on various flood protection projects.  Pump flows vary from 1000 GPM to 600,000 GPM, with design heads ranging from 10 ft. to 54 ft.  Available horsepowers are as high as 5000, and pump sizes range up to 9 ft. in diameter (discharge).  Different materials are available for the manufacture of these pumps.
 

II.  UL LISTED / FM APPROVED FIRE PUMPS
R-B Pump has one of the largest selections of fire pumps in the industry.  Our fire pumps are manufactured to NFPA standards, and are UL listed and FM approved.

The splitcase fire pumps are approved from 200 GPM to 5000 GPM, with pressures up to 570 psi and horsepowers up to 1000.  These units are available in different sizes, all based on NFPA requirements.  Our pumps require lower horsepower due to higher efficiencies.

The vertical turbine, multistage fire pumps are approved from 250 GPM to 5000 GPM, with heads as high as 535 psi and horsepowers up to 600.

The inline fire pumps are approved from 25 GPM to 750 GPM in a variety of pressure ranges and pump models to suit the particular application.

The end suction fire pumps are approved from 25 GPM to 750 GPM in different pump sizes.

In addition to these pumps, we have multi-stage booster pumps for very high heads, and have also designed and manufactured scores of other specialty pumps.

R-B Pump manufactures specialty pumps used by the U.S. Navy specifically designed to meet MIL standards.  These pumps are mostly composed of Monel and copper-nickel metallurgy.  Flows vary from 30 GPM to 3000 GPM.  For the dry-docks around Navy shipyards, we also supply custom-made pumps with heads up to 100 ft. and flows up to 100,000 GPM.  These pumps are non-clog, dry-pit types requiring horsepowers up to 1500, and pump sizes up to 48" in diameter (discharge).

For the Air Force, Coast Guard, and Army, R-B Pump manufactures self-priming pumps to meet MIL standards.  These self-priming pumps are used for pumping fuel and water.  Flows are as high as 2000 GPM, heads are as high as 500 ft., and discharge sizes up to 6" are available.  Our military pumps page gives a sample list of pumps we have provided for the various branches of the military.
