It may be shocking for the regular readers of this blog to learn that one of my all-time favorite foods is the Big Mac. I’ve been eating Big Macs regularly for the last 27 years (I remember my first Big Mac at age 5) and attribute most of my outstanding health to them. Earlier this week, I had a hankering for a Big Mac and I drove through and ordered a sandwich only. I about drove off when the drive through screen informed me my total was $6.57. I remember the days when I could get 2 for $5!
The point of this anecdote is that prices are up- everywhere. From Big Macs to record high gas prices to PD pumps from every manufacturer (you should believe only half of what you read on Linkedin), the world is an expensive place right now. Fortunately for our customers, Triplex is on a mission to help you minimize your total cost of ownership on Waukesha PD Pumps and in the post will give you a quick run through of the current programs you can take advantage of to save money today!
Alloy 88 Buyback Program
Did you know those old Alloy 88 rotors you have lying around are actually worth quite a bit more than your other scrap metal? Triplex is excited to announce our Rotor buyback program, offering $6/lb for Alloy 88 scrap. Whether you have old Waukesha or Ampco rotors, we’ll take them and pay you out in cash or credit!
5% Discount to Trade In & Trade Up!
Have a Wright Flow or Ampco positive displacement pump? Or how about a Universal 1 or Universal 2 pump that has seen better days? Now is the perfect time to trade in your existing external circumferential piston pump and receive and additional discount on the replacement pump.
We’ve spend a lot of time talking about the new Universal 3 pump. Regardless of what sanitary PD pump you’re using, there is no better time to make the switch.
Universal 3 Pumps for Life
In that vein, let’s circle back to another recent post on this blog– the Universal 3 Pumps for Life Program. The Universal 3 Positive Displacement pump is the latest and greatest in a long line of industry leading positive displacement pump. But like all pieces of rotating equipment, the Universal 3 does wear over time.
Historically, OEMs have supported these aging pumps by reconditioning them. This process involves re-machining the pump body and using oversized rotors and a modified cover. This can create huge headaches for maintenance departments trying to service a fleet of pumps.
With the Universal 3 Pump, worry about reconditioned pumps no more! Just service your Universal 3 Pump with factory OEM parts and when it reaches end of life, receive a brand new Universal 3 pump at a reconditioned pump price!
Not ready to make the switch to a U3 yet and still want to take advantage of Waukesha’s remanufacturing program? No problem! At Triplex, we’re focused on streamlining the remanufactured pump process. Simply call us with your pump serial number (or even a description) and we’ll configure and price it for you over the phone! Not only that, but we’ll give you your reman price up front- no confusing credits to explain to your CFO. Just the lowest for price for your remanufactured pump, guaranteed! And whether you want to drop the pump off at the factory or just destroy it on your end, Triplex will accommodate you.
So while prices everywhere are rising (don’t believe Linkedin posts that say certain pumps aren’t), at Triplex, we’re doing everything we can to help you make the most out of your capital equipment budget. If you have questions about any of these programs, contact a Triplex Sales Engineer today and we’ll be happy to help you out!
