As part of its commitment to providing customers with the broadest possible range of quality maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) products, leading supplier Brammer has announced a new partnership with Grundfos Pumps Limited, with an extensive range of pumps now stocked in its centrally-located National Distribution Centre (NDC).
Grundfos is a UK leader in supply of pumps and pump systems for process industry applications, manufacturing some 16 million pump units worldwide each year. It offers a comprehensive selection of pumps for industries including food & drink, pharmaceutical, utilities and the machining industry, with specialist models suitable for applications such as boiler feed, heating, cooling, refrigeration, potable water supply and transfer, as well as wastewater and Cleaning in Place (CIP) systems.
In addition to offering customers a wide range of Grundfos products and guaranteeing speedy delivery with stock held at its NDC, the company has recruited a new dedicated pump specialist, product manager James Boyle. With a wealth of experience in assisting customers with the selection and management of pumps, James worked within Grundfos for more than 10 years giving him a comprehensive knowledge of fixed and variable speed pump technology, booster sets, pressurisation equipment and waste water packages.
Brammer has selected a hand-picked range of Grundfos pumps to meet the needs of its customers. Its comprehensive selection of centrifugal pumps includes close-coupled, end suction, multi-stage (horizontal and vertical) and sump and bore hole pumps. For customers requiring positive displacement pumps, Brammer now offers a range of reciprocating and rotary pumps including diaphragm, gear, progressive cavity, flexible impeller and peristaltic pumps.
Also available from Brammer is the DMH range of hydraulically-actuated piston diaphragm dosing pumps for enhanced dosing reliability in high-pressure applications, with models available to withstand pressures from 50 to 200 Bar. Offering high accuracies, DMH models offer dosing flow fluctuations of as little as <+/- 1% within the 10-100% control range.
Commenting on the new partnership, Managing Director of Brammer and Buck & Hickman, Ian Ritchie said: “Our portfolio of products is carefully curated to add maximum value to our customers through reducing total acquisition costs, improving production and reducing working capital. Adding Grundfos, to our extensive offering of more than 60,000 products is therefore a natural extension of our services as their values closely match our own.
“In the UK, the pump market is estimated to be worth £1.1bn which means that not only are a huge number of pumps in operation in UK manufacturing facilities, but that specifying the correct pumps and maintaining them effectively can result in meaningful cost savings.”
