Specialist Industry - Chemical
The Chemical industry can be particularly challenging as innovative products and processes place new and unique demands on pumping solutions which may require the design a bespoke pump to meet the specialist duty.
Facilities require reliable cost-effective equipment that meets current industry and health and safety regulations with low through-life costs and maintenance requirements and existing plants may need plug-and-play pumps on short lead times to replace old or failing pumps, minimising disruptive downtime.
Amarinth Chemical long and close coupled horizontal pumps and vertical pumps are compliant with the ISO 5199 standard, ASME B73.1, ASME B73.2, BS 4082-1, ISO 9906, ANSI/HI 14.6, and carry full ATEX compliance. We have models that are particularly suited to high efficiency / low power duties, variable speed drive requirements, and low NPSH applications, including polymer and latex pumping and cryogenic services. Bespoke pumps can be delivered on short lead times.
We strive to fully understand our customers’ requirements and ensure we deliver to your specifications and expectations within our quoted leadtime. We currently deliver in excess of 95% of orders on-time, measured to the day
Our horizontal and vertical pumps are designed for a reliable and long service life, meeting or exceeding current industrial and process quality and safety standards. We can supply pumps that are fully interchangeable with former Girdlestone URF, USM, SSM and SSD series pumps, eliminating the need for expensive modifications of process plant and associated downtime. Pumps can also be supplied on bespoke baseplates to match existing footprints. Skid packages comprising of pumps and all ancillary equipment, pipework and instrumentation can be configured and a range of seal support options are available. Working exclusively with UK foundries for all our castings, pumps can be supplied in various exotic alloys, including titanium.
What Our Clients Say
The support and experience Amarinth provided throughout this issue resulted in both a cost effective and more reliable pump solution. Amarinth's support and desire to help identify the root cause of the failure was their strength. They concentrated on the crucial factors of our challenge to help resolve what had been a long standing problem.
VAM Plant Mechanical Engineer
I have been impressed by Amarinth’s repeated willingness to further develop and improve this product. Working with them and developing innovative ideas had been a very productive and rewarding experience. The cost savings generated for Polimeri Europa have been considerable and have turned one of our most problematic maintenance issues into one of our most reliable.
Plant Engineer Materials
Amarinth proved to be responsive and highly knowledgeable in pump specification and design. They were able to offer cost competitive solutions which met our project requirements and then supported this with excellent management of the order execution.
Senior Project Engineer
We expected the solution provided by Amarinth to be successful and have not been disappointed. We have a number of other Girdlestone pumps on site and we now have the confidence to keep them operational, replacing them as and when necessary, knowing Amarinth will continue to support us. Amarinth showed they were prepared to support us in our business and so we will have no hesitation in contacting them again. I’m sure our circumstances are not uncommon with the many other operators of Girdlestone pumps. It is a major cost saving for users to be able to fit a directly interchangeable pump, both hydraulically and dimensionally, built to the same high standards of the original product into their existing installation with no expensive and time consuming modifications to either the pipework or baseplate.
Billericay Fertiliser Services
We had a problem with an existing pump we wanted to use. I called Amarinth to see if they could assist and after an in-depth review of the problem they were able to offer a superior alternative. The problem centred around a volute casing and removable suction cover. BP needed to pump some corrosive chemicals and could not afford any leakage. Amarinth redesigned the two components into a single integrated volute and suction cover which was radiographed and dye tested thus providing no opportunity for any potential leakage or corrosion between the joint faces.

Technical information: Specifying, measuring and reducing noise levels of pumps to meet health and safety regulations
There are various health and safety regulations around the world that set the maximum continuous noise levels workers can be subject to, but all are broadly in agreement.
This form must be printed & completed before any pump is returned to our factory for repair or refurbishment. It should be faxed or e-mailed to Amarinth before the pump is sent. Pumps delivered to our factory without a decontamination certificate will be rejected and returned
