The Best Pumps and Service in Australia? You Decide.

We believe that we import the best pumps from around the world into Australia and we are proud of it. However, we realize that everybody says they have the best of anything, so we would like to tell you why we are so proud of our products and service.

We were established by a migrant German engineer in 1990. We were then called Pumps and Services Australia. We originally specialized in engineered vacuum pump systems because there was a need for them and no one was doing a good enough job according to our standards. We developed vacuum and hydraulic solutions for numerous industries, Including mining, water and manufacturing.

The Best Pumps and Service in Australia

Our proudest accomplishment from that era was an industry-changing creation at the Geraldton Fish Market in which a vacuum pumping system was created to transport fish from ships to the docks. This system is still in use today.

In 2000, we decided to diversify and use our expertise to reach more people and create more solutions for businesses that needed them. We also used our extensive network of elite pump manufacturers in Italy, Germany, Turkey and other countries to create a selection of the best pumps in the world.

In 2017, we now offer one stop shopping for pumps and services. Most of all, we don’t just sell and service pumps; we create solutions. We also carry a full line of filtration devices and are considered a major supplier in that industry.

So, why do we think our pumps are the best in the world? It is because of the manufacturers we choose to do business with. We know which manufacturers make the best pump in their niches across the world and we have gone out of our way to persuade the best manufacturers to allow us to import their pumps into Australia.

These manufacturers include Lowars, Tsurumi, Speck Pumpen, Fluid-o-Tech, Ran, Becker, Grundfos, Verderflex, Flojet and Filter Technics.

Metering Pumps: Some Helpful Facts

We import the world’s finest pumps into Australia for use in many different industries. There are many different types of pumps for many different purposes. One of the most precise is called a metering pump. Metering pumps are pumps that are made to move a precise amount of fluid in a precise timeframe.

Facts Of Metering Pumps

The ability of a pump to deliver a precise amount of fluid in a precise amount of time is called “metering.” Many different types of pumps can qualify as metering pumps, including positive displacement pumps and centrifugal pumps. However, diaphragm pumps are most commonly used as metering pumps. Usually, the user is allowed to program, set and adjust flow rate via a control such as a touchpad or a hand dial.

Fixed Displacement vs Variable Displacement

There are two basic types of metering pump operation: fixed displacement and variable displacement. Fixed displacement metering pumps allow the speed of the motor to adjust the flow rate. Variable displacement metering pumps have a consistent flow rate regardless of the speed of the engine.

By the Numbers

Metering pumps can be used for a wide range of applications. Flow rate can be from .038 litres per minute to 76 litres per minute. Total head pressure can range from .7 bar to 2,068 bar. Power can be as low as 2kw or as high as 37kw.

Common Applications of Metering Pumps

Metering pumps are used in many industries, but most commonly in the food processing, water treatment and chemical industries. They are also used for wastewater treatment, moving gas or oil in pipelines and blending liquids in food processing plants. In water treatment, they are often used to add precise amounts of chemicals to water that can make it sanitary and drinkable.

How Sydney Reduced Power Costs up to 50% with New Water Pumps

The right water pump can reduce power up to 50% over an improper, old or outdated water pump. Last year, the city of Sydney was able to reduce their power costs by up to 50% in many cases simply by changing water pumps.

The moves were part of an overall movement in Sydney to reduce the use of electricity in their buildings. They embarked upon a program of retrofitting for power and water efficiency. The program extended across 45 buildings, including recreational centres, libraries and even a recycling depot.

Save Power Costs With The Right Water Pumps

Savings, Savings, Savings

The City of Sydney contracted Origin Energy to provide $6.9 million in retrofitting with the goal of saving a total of 6.4 million kilowatts per year. This number would be enough electricity to power approximately 870 households for at least a year. The city will save $880,000 in power bills and and another $160,000 per year in water bills. The net effect is to save power, save water and reduce emissions.

The City of Sydney is already the first government in Australia that is officially carbon neutral. Their aim is to reduce carbon emissions by 70% by 2030. Whether or not you believe in environmental responsibility, the bottom line is that it saves a lot of money while promoting efficiency.

While a lot of the savings were electrical in nature, some of the more important ones involved water pumps. For large buildings and swimming pools, variable speed drives were added to HVAC system pumps to improve efficiency.

At the Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre, they installed eight variable speed drives aimed at reducing the amount of energy that was consumed by the supply and return air fans on the recirculation pumps of the program and leisure pool pumps, the air handling unit and the hot water pumps that supply the boilers.

Why Find the Right Pump

The bottom line: the right pump can save you a lot of time, money and hassle, whatever type of facility you run. To learn more, call us today: 1300 922 973.
