ame sources pumps from around the globe, we do have some preferred iconic brands of course, and they have been well proven in the field by giving our clients decades of trouble free service. This is more important now than ever before, with cheap imports, copies and knock offs flooding the market, aside from questionable safety and performance, lack of technical information, the lack of future support, and the moral implications of a wasteful consumer society, they are often supported by only one importer in Australia, which can leave you in the lurch if things go wrong and the sole importer is no longer around!
Companies like Grundfos, who are arguably market leaders in a number of fields, with massive amounts of reinvestment into their own research and development, often imitated, never beaten, their pumps are generally the most copied units that we see. Grundfos started in 1962 with circulators, ’67 ( a great year ! ) saw their first production of SS submersibles, and 1972 vertical multistage pumps made an appearance. They have been at the forefront of innovative pumping solutions ever since, and we are proud to be closely associated them. Oh they sell pumps in every part of the world too, and their head office is here in Adelaide, so if the suburb of Torrensville was to fall into a sinkhole, you can still get all the backup, support and service you will need! ame is proud to announce that we have been assigned the sole Industrial Dealer moniker by Grundfos for South Australia
Flowserve are the new Thompson Kelly & Lewis, some of the most reliable pumping equipment in Australia. We have clients right now who still utilise their KL Model 50’s and 70’s, Supertitan and Hydrotitan pumps and even older Worthington and Thompson BGH pumps every day, day in, day out. Flowserve is the large American based company that purchased them some years ago, and brought with then the Durco Chemical Process pumps, the HPX API 610 pumps and a myriad of more industry specific units that many clients standardise on. The Total Cost of Ownership for a quality built unit from Flowserve is easily justifiable, more environmentally sustainable, and able to be customised to suit your application. Did you know we have recently been able to get drawings for units built in the 1940’s from Flowserve with spare parts still able to be manufactured! Then again you can trace their products back through their current truly global manufacturing base to 1790 ..
Ebsray is another long established company providing quality product for over 60 years. Fueling up your car, your plane, your train or your bus ? Chances are, during at least one, and likely many of the stages of the manufacture, your fuel it would have passed through Ebsray pumps. An iconic Australian company, recently purchased by a large multinational to further improve and develop the markets these pumps are found in, I don’t think there would be a refinery in Australia that doesn’t have at least one Ebsray, & generally lots. Refueling stations, bitumen pumping, truck loading / unloading, LPG delivery and transfer, you’ve seen them, you just might not realise it !
