Brammer partners with grundfos to pump up the value for food industry

17 June 2015

As part of its commitment to providing its customers in the food industry sector with the broadest possible range of quality maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) products, leading supplier Brammer has announced a new partnership with Grundfos Pumps Limited, with an extensive range of pumps now stocked in its centrally-located National Distribution Centre (NDC).

Grundfos is a UK leader in supply of pumps and pump systems for process industry applications including food and beverage processing, manufacturing some 16 million pump units worldwide each year. It offers a comprehensive selection of pumps specially designed for food manufacturing applications, with a clear focus on hygiene and reliability. Brammer has selected a hand-picked range of Grundfos sanitary pump solutions to meet the needs of its customers in dairies, chocolate and confectionery factories and food processing plants – all made from surface-treated stainless steel and designed to handle viscous, delicate or temperature-sensitive ingredients. 

In addition to offering customers a wide range of Grundfos products and guaranteeing speedy delivery with stock held at its NDC, the company has recruited a new dedicated pump specialist, product manager James Boyle. With  a wealth of experience in assisting customers with the selection and management of pumps, James worked within Grundfos for more than 10 years giving him a comprehensive knowledge of fixed and variable speed pump technology, booster sets, pressurisation equipment, waste water packages and Cleaning in Place (CIP) systems.

Brammer has selected a hand-picked range of Grundfos pumps to meet the needs of its food processing and manufacturing customers. Its comprehensive selection of centrifugal pumps includes close-coupled, end suction, multi-stage (horizontal and vertical) and sump and bore hole pumps. For customers requiring positive displacement pumps, Brammer now offers a range of reciprocating and rotary pumps including diaphragm, gear, progressive cavity, flexible impeller and peristaltic pumps. 

Also available from Brammer is the DMH range of hydraulically-actuated piston diaphragm dosing pumps for enhanced dosing reliability in high-pressure applications, with models available to withstand pressures from 50 to 200 Bar. Offering high accuracies, DMH models offer dosing flow fluctuations of as little as <+/- 1% within the 10-100% control range.

Commenting on the new partnership, Managing Director of Brammer, Ian Ritchie said: “In adding Grundfos to our carefully chosen portfolio of products, we’re cementing our position as a strategic partner to customers in the food industry sector among many other areas of manufacturing. Far from simply supplying products, we can add maximum value by supporting customers on everything from specification and installation to aftercare and maintenance, all of which helps them to reduce total acquisition costs, improve production efficiencies and reduce working capital.”
