Submersible Pumps: A Concise History

Every day we are presented with high-speed developments in technology - which we typically take for granted, almost never stopping to consider the talented, skilled and often fearless human beings behind these world-changing inventions!


Today we're honouring the inventor of the Submersible Pump, Armais Aruntunoff!




"1928 Russian oil delivery system engineer and inventor Armais Arutunoff successfully installed the first submersible oil pump. In 1929, Pleuger Pumps pioneered the design of the submersible turbine pump, the forerunner of the modern multi-stage submersible pump. In the mid 1960s the first fully submersible deep-well water pump was developed." ~ Wikipedia
