Pumps and Pumping Systems

Pumps can be classified into three major groups according to the method they use to move liquids, gases or sometimes slurries: direct lift, displacement, and gravity pumps. Pumps may be classified on the basis of the application they serve, the materials from which they are constructed, the fluid (liquids, gases, slurries) they handle, and even their orientation in space. Find manufacturers of fluid (liquids or gases) moving pumps in our Equipment Guide.

Experts for Pumps and Pumping Systems

Stéphane Dumonceaux is a French “Water-Man”! We can say that water is his life! Mr. Dumonceaux was sailing since he was a child and started out his career working 3 years on the water in the French Navy. He gained 7 years of experience in the hydraulic construction, pump industry, and water treatment in the field of wastewater. After this, he developed a new method for pump stations rehabilitation and invented Direct In-line Pumping for lift stations in a period of 12 years at S.I.D.E. Industrie. Today he is the owner of SIDE Industrie. After years of time spending his time fixing customers their problems in the field of wastewater, he realized that they needed something different. In 2002 he invented and patented the Direct, Intelligent and Clean way to transport wastewater called the DIP System. S.I.D.E Company. The first system has been manufactured and installed in 2003. Now Mr. Dumonceaux spent his time introducing promoting and deploying the DIP System® all over the World. Mr. Dumonceauxand is still working with lots of passion in improving the vital relationship between humans and water!

Hello, my name is Lee Sandry and I am a Sector Training Manager at Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions. My role primarily involves training sales colleagues to provide customers the best fluid handling solutions in industrial sectors, including water treatment, mining, chemical and construction applications. Being from Cornwall and surrounded by the mining industry, with a father who worked underground, my local environment was always about engineering and mineral processing. My apprenticeship when I left school was with the large mining machinery manufacturer, which has led me onto greater things. My background at Watson-Marlow started in 1996 when I was involved in the production of hundreds of parts that go into the manufacture of our pumps. This was followed with becoming a Technical Support Engineer, working directly with colleagues and customers globally. Site visits and constant customer-facing support at Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Solutions, gave me the opportunity to experience many aspects of installation and operation of our peristaltic and sinusoidal pumps range. My aim is to enable sales teams around the world to provide robust solutions for demanding pumping applications, helping customers improve the efficiency and safety of their manufacturing process. Choosing the right pump can overcome problems that cause other pump types to fail. With no rotors to wear, or seals and glands to flush, peristaltic hose pumps handle abrasive fluids without the maintenance costs of other pumps. Whilst the extremely low shear and high suction sinusoidal pumps reduce product damage and cut waste in high viscosity fluid transfer duties.
