Pressurised water systems

We supply pressurized water systems, which hold water and compressed air in great pressure vessels. The compressed air accumulates the energy and the water transfers the energy. The pressure accumulator is charged in the pauses between the operating cycles. 

Pressure accumulators are especially suitable for applications with long cycle times. This is where they are the most efficient solution that brings significant cost savings with it. 

Our pressure accumulators are used where energy is needed on short notice, for example in descaling and for driving hydraulic forging presses.

Water-hydraulic press drives

Wepuko PAHNKE has been manufacturing water-hydraulic press drives for industrial use for more than 80 years. Another large field of application is in the steel and metal industry, but Wepuko PAHNKE water-hydraulic press drives are also used in presses in the wood, rubber, plastics and automotive industry.

Wepuko inside!

Vendors, who use our pumps as part of the systems and skids that they  supply can be certain of one thing: Wherever Wepuko products are deployed quality and reliability are guaranteed. The technology of wepuko pumps is based on more than 80 years experience of pump design and manufacturing.

We have shown this expertise in co-operation with many partners including:

  • Ruhrpumpen / Thyssen Maschinenbau (RDP Pump series)
  • August Ahrendts
  • Werner & Pfleiderer
  • Berns Hydraulik
  • Sack
  • Ence


Our systems are in use worldwide – wherever maximum reliability and durability are required.

The excellent quality of the components and their optimized design make the Wepuko PAHNKE pumps, power units and systems ideal for continuous three-shift operation. 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Descaling plants

Wepuko PAHNKE has been producing pumps for water hydraulic applications for over 87 years. In this context, Wepuko PAHNKE has also been active in the field of descaling systems. In this field, know-how has been acquired over many years, both in the construction of complete turnkey descaling systems and in the completion and optimisation of existing descaling technology.

Wepuko PAHNKE supplies complete descaling systems that are tailored precisely to the customer's requirements. Depending e.g. on the specified cycle times, descaling systems are generally available in two variants: as pressurised water systems or as direct descaling systems.

Wepuko PAHNKE technology proves its worth every day in the continuous operation of over 100 descaling systems worldwide.

Wepuko PAHNKE's team of experts combines German engineering skills with decades of practical experience, always looking at things from the user's perspective.
