The new Amarinth facility has a comprehensive test rig with multiple connections to the main test tank which can cope with flows of up to 1650m3/hr. The multiple connections allow pumps to be prepared for test or disassembled after tests while another pump is undergoing testing, saving hours of idle test time and increasing throughput significantly.
Oliver Brigginshaw, managing director of Amarinth said: "Our new state-of-the-art test facility reflects our drive to retain our position as the leading company in the industry to deliver bespoke API 610 pumps on short leadtimes whilst continuing with our significant growth. We can now test all of the units going through the factory without having to extend any of our delivery times, ensuring that we can undertake an increased number of prestigious contracts, particularly those with tight deadlines. We have seen our order book continue to grow over the past year, despite the difficult economic conditions, and this significant investment reflects our confidence in the expected growth of Amarinth in the years to come.”
