Arthur Redman Wilfley was described in a 1927 issue of “Engineering and Mining Journal” as an inventor-genius who personified Thomas Edison’s recipe for genius in that 90% of the ingredients for an inventor is perspiration and 10% is inspiration. Arthur Wilfley had many patented inventions. His two most noteworthy inventions were the revolutionary concentrating Wilfley table for separation of ore and the packingless centrifugal pump.
The invention of the packingless centrifugal pump led Arthur Wilfley and his two sons to establish A.R. Wilfley and Sons, Inc. The first Wilfley pumps were designed for mining applications and the first ones were sold in 1919.
A.R. Wilfley and Sons continues it's legacy with pumps and engineering solutions for the most difficult pump installations. Wilfley’s Sales personnel are degreed engineers who are able to solve the most difficult pump problems.
Today, Wilfley continues to manufacture centrifugal pumps with advanced seal technology for both abrasive and corrosive applications. Wilfley pumps meet ASME specifications and are available in a variety of materials and configurations. Wilfley maintains its’ own foundry and provides quality metallurgy second to none.
