When people in the business think of submersible pumps, Tsurumi will come to mind more often than not. With 40 distributors across the world and an impeccable reputation for high quality, versatile submersible pumps, Tsurumi stands as one of the most iconic and reliable brands in the business.
Tsurumi was founded in Osaka, Japan in 1924. Their first flagship product was the TDL-series of vertical shaft pumps for agricultural use. In 1951, they would incorporate as Tsurumi Manufacturing Company, Limited and introduce their two stage TDW pump series for construction dewatering.
But their real magic started in 1953 to 1954, when they developed the first submersible pumps, called the EP-75 and the EP-100.
Tsurumi Submersible Pumps Today
Today, Tsurumi makes submersible pumps for four different purposes: dewatering pumps, corrosion resistant pumps, sand/slurry pumps and sewage/wastewater pumps.
Tsurumi dewatering pumps can pump clean or dirty water with high head pumping or high volume pumping. They have silicon carbide mechanical seals, which allow Tsurumi pumps to operate in adverse conditions with minimal wear and tear. Their anti-wicking cable entry keeps water from getting into the pump if the power cable sustains damage.
Their sand/slurry pumps are built to be more durable, with slower speeds, heavy duty casings, thermal motor protection and hard metal wearing parts. Their sewerage pumps are versatile, supplying power from 15 kw to 110 kw. The corrosion resistant pumps range up to 11 kw, but the real story is their materials. They are made of cast 316 stainless steel for industry standard corrosion resistance. But if you need more resistance, they can be made of titanium.
Their sewerage pumps are built with many different configurations. They offer a full range of wastewater treatment pumps and associated products, such as skimmers, aeration pumps, bar screens, mixers and decanting pumps.
