As well as supplying the global marine market, we serve other industrial sectors such as petrochemical, food manufacturing, metal processing, mining and quarrying.
Our customers include large fleet operators, multi-national petrochemical operators, manufacturers of household brands and other well-known companies.
With our new facilities and extended product range, we aim to increase our presence in existing sectors and to explore business opportunities in the UK utilities market, in marine engineering and large infra structure projects.
Pumps are used upstream to help move crude oil during the refining process and to move liquid chemicals from one process to the next. They are used the fuel and chemical distribution market to load tankers.
Many of the pumps operate at high rates of flow and pressure. These factors, along with the viscous and toxic nature of many of the products means they require regular servicing and maintenance. All pumps we repair in this sector are coated to offer extra protection from corrosion.
The water industry is the biggest user of pumps in the utilities market. Positive displacement pumps or centrifugal pumps are used to force water or waste into discharge pipes and submersible pumps are used in slurry or waste water to add power to the pumping process. Submersible pumps in particular operate in harsh conditions and coating is highly recommended after repair or servicing.
With the huge amount of heat generated in the steel and metal processing sector, pumps are mainly used to deliver water to cool affected areas. They are also used in descaling. The types used are mainly centrifugal.
The brewing and beverage industry uses mainly centrifugal pumps to move liquids and the food industry typically uses the technology to unload fluids from delivery vehicles. They are also used in the coating process for some foodstuffs. Many pumps used in the food processing sector are manufactured from stainless steel.
MINING AND QUARRYING
Submersible pumps are mainly used to ensure the essential removal of water. Centrifugal pumps are used for delivering water to enable processing and washing.
We can offer pumps or total pumping systems for fish farms using sustainable Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS). Investment in these systems is increasing and we can offer quality pumps to meet the performance levels required for most farms.
