Tsurumi Pumps Take Steps to Help Avoid Corrosion

Tsurumi Pumps have a reputation for making some of the best submersible pumps in the world. But even the Tsurumi submersible pumps can suffer a shortening of life cycle and efficiency when exposed to aggressive media such as salt water.

One of the more common strategies for fighting corrosion is to retrofit anode blocks while replacing parts. This is necessary because even pumps made of supposedly rustproof materials like stainless steel are susceptible to corrosion when exposed to aggressive media on a daily basis.

Tsurumi Pumps Take Steps to Help Avoid Corrosion

Stainless steel is corrosion-resistant because it has a thin layer on the top called the “passive layer.” It is self-repairing, though on a limited basis, due to its molecular structure. However, that thin layer can be eroded, exposing the cast elements beneath it.

Those cast metals are susceptible to corrosion. The only material that is close to being 100% trustworthy and resistant to corrosion is titanium. Basically, the more aggressive the material in which the pump is sitting, the greater effect it can have on the metal on the outside of the pump.

The Tsurumi Pump Solution

Tsurumi has a solution for fighting corrosion in submersible pumps: retrofittable sacrificial anodes. They are solid place which are made of zinc or aluminum. The anodes are attached to the casing with screws. This causes what Tsurumi calls a bimetal corrosion process. In a bimetal corrosion process, the less worthy metal is the one affected by the corrosion while the more hearty metal is not.

The end result is that the superficial anodes become rusty while the functional parts of the pump are almost totally unscathed by corrosion.

A Brief History of Tsurumi Pumps

Tsurumi Submersible Pump in AustraliaTsurumi Pumps was established in 1924 in Osaka, Japan. They began manufacturing shaft pumps for agricultural applications. In 1953 and 1954, they began developing the first submersible pumps in the world: the EP-75 series and the EP-100 series. These pumps were sold from 1955-1959.

In 1962, they developed new dry type, lightweight motors to replace motors that were filled with oil. In 1965, they developed another new submersible pump with the first built-in circle thermal protector. In 1968, they developed the first automatic, float-type submersible pump. This pump had a built-in automatic control circuit.

Fast forward to now and they have offices and facilities in China, Indonesia, Taiwan, Malaysia, Korea and many cities in Japan. They are established as one of the largest makers of the best submersible pumps in the world.

Their corporate philosophy is short but brilliant. They encourage creativity, respect harmony with nature and value passion. This makes them flexible and always “ahead of the curve” when it comes to technology and innovation.

They pride themselves on conducting business ethically with a stringent code of conduct. The result is that there are never any “shortcuts” taken at Tsurumi Pumps.
