NOV Mono celebrates 75 years

05 March 2010

Flying the flag for UK manufacture, NOV Mono, a Europe-based provider of pumps, parts, grinders and screens, will celebrate its 75th anniversary on 13 May 2010

Simon Lambert, general manager – Europe at NOV Mono commented: “The progressing cavity (PC) pump has come a long way since its invention by French creator René Moineau in the 1930’s and, as the UK’s only licensee of this simple and effective pumping principle, we’ve taken a front row seat over the past 75 years.

“PC pumps operate on a principle which has remained virtually unchanged for seventy five years. During that time we have focused on bringing this innovative technology to many different industry sectors, including food & beverage, to fundamentally change the way in which it manufactures, helping to improve production and profitability.

“We are constantly striving to move this technology on to meet the changing needs of the many different markets in which we operate. This has led to the development of many industry leading products such as our Helios and Luna hygienic pumps, the Muncher range of disintegrators and the latest addition to the family, our revolutionary EZstripTM progressing cavity pump.”

Products in Mono’s current pump portfolio can handle capacities in excess of 400 tonnes per hour and pressures in excess of 70 bar (1000 psi). These pumps are complemented by additional ranges of grinders, screens, packaged pumping systems and solar pumps. Mono also manufactures a comprehensive range of Mono Universal Parts for other branded progressing cavity pumps. These have been designed to be used in seepex, Netzsch, PCM, Allweiler, Robbins & Myers, Bornemann and Orbit pumps.

Simon continued: “In the food and beverage industry specifically, there is a low awareness of the features and advantages of PC pumps in processing applications, and in particular, their potential for saving costs.

“Pump technology can result in a significant return on investment and we are working together with food manufacturers to raise awareness of the potential and versatility of pump and grinder solutions, helping manufacturers improve energy and cost efficiency, as well as the quality of the end product.”

Originally formed in 1935, Mono’s continual development of product innovations and business practices has seen it thrive into the $170 million company it is today. The NOV Mono Group has 700 authorised distributors across the globe and employs over 750 people. In 2003 the company was acquired by National Oilwell Varco, a leading provider of oilfield products and services to the worldwide oil and gas industry.
