The AxFlow Group is the largest distributor of positive displacement pumps and related products and services in Europe. The company represents world-leading suppliers, and adds considerable customer value by industrial know-how, fast and reliable deliveries and a wide range of technical services.
Established in 1989, AxFlow has continually focused on meeting the needs of, primarily, process industries across Europe. Our ambition is to meet the needs of local industry while, at the same time, offering one strategic distribution and customer service solution across Europe.
This has resulted in stable growth and unequalled presence in the fragmented European market.
AxFlow is now offering a compressor system as an alternative to centrifugal pumps for emptying liquefied gas from storage tanks, vessels and mobile tankers.
Leading distributor of positive displacement pumps and process instruments AxFlow, extends its business in Norway with the acquisition of Process Partner AS – experts in process instrumentation, calibration and gas detection equipment for offshore and onshore industries.
Grimsby’s Freshney pumping station is a key element of the town’s flood defences which were first enshrined in statute way back in the Grimsby Haven Act of 1796. When the pumping station was first built more than half a century ago it was equipped with three large Archimedes screw pumps. These were replaced some years later, but time and exposure to the elements have resulted in corrosion and wear, so in 2016 a major refurbishment programme was implemented in respect of the No.3 pump.
Leading specialist in industrial pumps, fluid handling systems and related services, AxFlow, extends its product portfolio and market coverage in Switzerland with the acquisition of W. Moser AG.
AxFlow has announced that it has added the latest Wilden AODD pump, the aluminium HS430S to its product range.
Ideally suited for applications that require high head pressures such as viscous and solid-laden slurries, the HS430S high pressure aluminum pump comes equipped with the revolutionary FIT wetted path that minimises the number of fasteners and allows for single socket reassembly for faster, easier maintenance. The new pump also provides superior flow rates, is easy to maintain and increases plant profitability beyond any other 1-1/2” (38 mm) high pressure aluminum AODD pump on the market.
AxFlow has introduced Pulsafeeder’s new Eclipse Series of Metallic Gear Pumps. With 12 different metallic and non-metallic pump models, the Eclipse family of gear pumps addresses a wide variety of chemicals, connection sizes and flow ranges for water treatment and chemical processing applications.
AxFlow has extended its range of positive displacement pumps with the introduction of the LB suite of elastomer coated rotary lobe pumps for flows of between 5m³/hr to 130m³/hr. The LB pump has been designed from scratch following an assessment of products currently on the market with a view to producing a process quality pump, positioned above the more agricultural designs yet without attracting the high costs of high end products.
Like many industrial sites that contain large areas of open space, surface water build up can prove to be a problem. At the Port of Immingham surface water has always been removed from the 1,230 acre site via by a tidal flap (valve) that drained water from a series of inter-connecting chambers and discharge pit directly into the Humber Estuary. However, recurrent blockages ABP’s engineers were keen to find a permanent solution to the problem.
Working on behalf of the Ouse & Derwent Internal Drainage Board, pump supplier AxFlow has installed two new submersible Bedford pumps at the Stillingfleet Surface Water Pumping Station. The two pumps removed from service are also being overhauled. The purpose of the pumping station is to lift surface water which can no longer drain by gravity into the nearby beck because mining subsidence has lowered the surface ground level. The pumping station was constructed by the British Coal Corporation in the early 1990’s as part of its mining remediation plans.
Optimising the use of food ingredients is now an essential part of the food manufacturing industry. In the meat processing sector new and innovative processes are being employed to recover every edible part of a carcass for animal consumption. Material previously disposed of as waste is now entering the food chain and it is sophisticated production processes and refined technologies that are making this possible.
