WOB-L® Technology Typifies THOMAS’ Focus On Innovation
Gardner Denver THOMAS marked June 8, 2016 as the 40-year anniversary of the patent issuing for the WOB-L® piston compressor technology. THOMAS invented and originated this technology and forever changed the pump and compressor market, since WOB-L® is a new class of pumps in a space between the articulated and diaphragm pump technologies.

Today, THOMAS remains focused on innovations and continuous improvements in not only WOB-L® but other pump technologies as well. WOB-L® piston technology is based on a robust design principle, comprised of a one-piece rod that “wobbles” inside the cylinder as the crankshaft rotates. Characterized by oil-less, efficient operation with low vibration and sound levels, THOMAS WOB-L® pumps provide customers high performance, durability and long-life reliability.

Since 1976, millions of units have been sold for use in a wide range of medical, environmental, automotive and industrial applications. While other manufacturers have tried to imitate the WOB-L® technology, THOMAS remains a leading manufacturer of pumps and compressors, and is the best choice for pressure and/or vacuum applications requiring compact, lightweight designs and high performance piston seals. Leading companies trust and rely on THOMAS innovation and the WOB-L® technology for quality and performance both today and tomorrow.
