Specialist Industry - Pharmaceutical

The Pharmaceutical industry demands reliable cost-effective equipment that meet current industry and health and safety regulations with low through-life costs and maintenance requirements.

To keep a plant operating at full capacity, plug-and-play pumps may be required on short lead times to replace old or failing pumps, minimising disruptive downtime, or unusual processes may demand a bespoke pump to meet a specialist duty.

Amarinth’s range of industrial long and close coupled horizontal and vertical pumps are compliant with ISO 5199 and ISO 9906 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. Bespoke pumps can be delivered on short lead times.

Why Amarinth?

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 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. Low maintenance and automated self-priming units are available and our range of Condensate Recovery Units incorporates high efficiency pumps with multi-stage motors and intelligent control systems. We work exclusively with UK foundries for all castings to ensure consistently high quality and manufacture all critical components within the UK.

We work closely with our customers to deliver exactly what is needed, on-time and on-budget, which we achieve through:

  • Clear regular lines of communication, including video conferencing
  • Regular project updates, progress reports and production programs
  • Transparent live manufacturing status (24/7 via our web page)
