Eastbourne, United Kingdom, February XX, 2017 – Sundyne is excited to announce that the VapourView® sealless pump condition monitoring instrument has been selected as a finalist for the prestigious British Pump Industry Awards in the category for Technical Innovation of the Year (Product).
Designed and manufactured by Sundyne HMD Kontro, VapourView broadens the scope of sealless pump technology, extending its economic and environmental benefits to wider applications, and can be applied where sensitivity to vaporisation in the pumped fluid is a concern, for example in hydrocarbon processes.
Launched in mid-2016, the cUL hazardous area certified VapourView device provides vital information to the end-user on the presence of gases in a pump’s internal flow regime and forewarns of adverse conditions likely to affect bearing lubrication or magnetic coupling cooling in a sealless magnetic drive pump, thereby eliminating safety risks, maximizing up- time and extending the equipment’s life.
Martin Stuart, Product Development Manager at Sundyne HMD Kontro, commented: We are delighted that VapourView is one of six products to be shortlisted. Our dedicated technical team has developed this unique, ground breaking product to bring sealless magnetic drive pumps to new audiences who can now benefit from lower maintenance costs, enhanced health and environmental safety, leak-free operation and long life durability.”
Founded by the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) in 2000, The Pump Industry Awards have become the recognised platform for celebrating significant industry achievement. The Technical Innovation of the Year Award distinguishes companies that produce the most innovative pump, pumping system or other pump related product, new or redeveloped, that has been introduced to the market within the last 24 months.
