Pumping lifeblood!

Your heart is the one pump we cannot mend.

We leave that to our brilliant hospitals and the wonderful people who work there.

However, we do look after the hospitals and their pumps.

For example…

• Sewage stations
• Pressurisation units and booster sets
• Heating/ chilled water pumps
• Repair and replacement
• Energy surveys
• 12 months warranty on all repair work

You can rely on our fully equipped mobile engineers who offer you emergency call out assistance.

Or, you can choose our preventative maintenance programmes to reduce untimely breakdowns.

We cannot fix your heart but we can take some of the stress out of it!

A pump is a pump or is it?

“My pump’s not sucking properly”.

Well that’s because pumps don’t suck. They push.

If you are suffering a fall-off in pump performance, and assuming the pump is running normally (i.e. not overheating or making horrid noises) then the first place to look is on the inlet or suction side of the pump.

Take a look for any blocked filters or strainers, closed valves, blocked or restricted pipes. If it’s boiler feed water or very hot liquids then NPSHa (net positive suction head available) may be limiting performance.

In fact, check anything that can impede flow into your pump.

Also, check to see if the site cat is still alive.

We once had a case where a pump was completely blocked by a pair of jeans!

If everything on the suction side is clear and as it should be, then obviously look on the discharge side for closed valves, blockages etc. And if all that fails, give us a shout!

When you haven’t got much room…


A customers’ factory was literally bursting at the seams and they desperately needed a new continuous loop test bed for their world-class products.


To design a shipping container made with personnel doors and other non-standard fittings. Fitted with an automated dual pumping system in all stainless steel, complete with inverter drives, controls, flow meters, fully wired and tested, before delivery to site.


Without using any more factory floor space, or requiring planning for expansion, the client received all they wanted in terms of capacity. The complete project took 8 weeks from inception to acceptance, on budget and on time.
