High Pressure Technology

120 years of URA­CA

URA­CA was found­ed in 1893 and has been man­u­fac­tur­ing pumps for over 100 years. The com­pany can there­fore be

re­gard­ed as a pi­oneer in this field. A lot has changed since then – but one thing has re­mained: Our rep­u­ta­tion for qual­i­ty born from tra­di­tion

Foundation of a mechanical workshop by Messrs. "Krumm and Magenwirth".

1893

Development and production of hand-operated high pressure pumps.

1900

Motor driven plunger pumps.

1910

"Pumpenfabrik Urach Württemberg": The new company name contains the word “pump” designating the main field of activity.

1913

Establishment of a second product range, i.e. high and low pressure reciprocating compressors.

1923

Acquisition and move to the present premises: „Sirchinger Strasse“ and company naming: "URACA".

1937

Extension of the product line by oil hydraulics.

1952

Process and industrial pumps with motor ratings up to 2,000 kW / 2,700 HP.

1960

Development of sewer cleaning pumps – the cradle of high pressure cleaning! Beginning of a standard product line with prospects for the future.

1962

The production range is completed by high pressure cleaning systems.

1970

URACA Tank Cleaning Heads „TWK“ are developed and patented revolutionizing the internal vessel cleaning technique. Internal vessel cleaning systems complete the success of program.

1973

Pressures continually increase. The 2,000 bar / 30,000 psi technology is a major breakthrough.

1987

URACA diaphragm process pumps - a new hermetic pump technology meeting the tightened environmental standards.

1991

Reorganization of the URACA premises. New buildings are installed, i.e. raw material warehouse, assembly shop, URACA technology center and reception area.

1996

2.800 bar / 40.000 psi technology – the ultra high pressure hurdle is cleared and of course, at a maximum operation time

2000

Extension of the power spectrum through 4 plunger pumps - a novelty in pump construction.

2007

Expansion of manufacturing capacity and the depth of in-house production - construction of a new production hall.

2008

Redevelopment of the company premises and start of construction of a new office building

2011

New company name "URACA GmbH & Co. KG" and a new corporate image
