Industrial Pump & Valve Manufacturers In South Africa

Since the start-up of our company in 1984, the staff of Chemical Pump and Valve Marketing, who between them have almost 60 years of experience in the pumping industry. We pride ourselves on the production of a range of locally manufactured chemical process transfer pumps that are not only cost-effective in the purchase stage, but thanks to the low running cost of the pumps continue throughout the lifecycle of the pump. The company’s main aim, in fact, is to keep the cost of ownership as low as possible for its clients.

The range of pumps includes horizontal long-coupled, horizontal close-coupled and vertical spindle sump pumps, which can be fitted onto a floating pontoon if so required.

They can manage all types of effluents, fatty acids, 0 to 98% H2S04, and 0 to 33% HCL. Over the past 20 years the company has built up a very extensive track record for pumping various chemicals. This information has been transferred onto a chemical resistance chart, available as an electronic catalogue, which may be ordered and sent via e-mail or hand delivered.
All the pumps in the range are selected and built to a computerized program, where all the client’s specifications are confirmed before assembly begins, and then run in the test bay to ensure units leave the premises correctly sized to the client’s specifications. Although a full repair facility is offered on the pumps, most clients order the spare parts and do the fitment themselves as all the pumps are extremely user-friendly. The company has its own mechanical seal called the “chem-seal” installed in all its pumps. Clients are, however, free to choose any other mechanical seal if they prefer.
