The Amarinth ISO15099 bare shaft pump ready for delivery to BASF.

When a former Girdlestone pump at a BASF chemical plant in Bradford failed two days before Christmas with no replacement available, BASF contacted Amarinth for emergency support.

Working with BASF, Amarinth was able to draw on its experience to produce a quotation the same day to provide a suitable replacement for the failed Girdlestone unit comprising of a bare shaft pump manufactured in 316 stainless steel to ISO15099 specifications.

With the Christmas period well underway and much of the UK shut down for two weeks, Amarinth used its influence across a well-established supply chain to source the necessary components and accelerate their delivery. Amarinth was then able to assemble and test the pump at its premises in Rendlesham, Suffolk and deliver it directly to the BASF site.

In just a few weeks from the initial contact, BASF had commissioned the new Amarinth pump at the Bradford plant, thereby ensuring downtime was kept to a minimum during the Christmas period.
