The LB250 submersible pump is thought to be the longest-serving Tsurumi pump in Europe.

The Tsurumi LB250 belonging to Verno BV has not only been in use for 22 years, it has also never needed a major repair.

Henk Reitsma, managing director of Verno BV, said: “Firstly, what we hear about most with Tsurumi pumps is that their design allows them to perform in just about any application – their versatility seems boundless. If a customer has used a pump from another manufacturer, they immediately see the difference with the Tsurumi. Its overall quality and strength is clear. And the uncomplicated and robust design of the pumps means they are highly effective with little that can go wrong. Maintenance is very easy. We just check oil levels and the mechanical seal. If a repair is ever needed, it’s normally a standard wear issue. In fact the biggest problem we have with the pumps not working is when a customer drives over them – something that has happened on more than one occasion!”
