Rotary Gear Pump manufacturer, Varley Pumps, a division of the Hayward Tyler Group
Rotary Gear Pump manufacturer, Varley Pumps, a division of the Hayward Tyler Group, has completed phase one of the installation of a new test bay at their factory in Luton, England. Phase One allows the testing of special pump units on dedicated test beds. In addition to the dedicated test beds there is an additional area for Non standard and API Pumps with flow rates of up to 1000gpm (4500 l/min). The 125 kW bed has been used to test pumps at pressures up to 120 bar to date. An offline cooler circuit can be used to maintain a constant temperature. The bay also houses a 4000 gallon tank that is fully bunded so as to comply with the latest environmental standards. Phase two of the project will involve moving the existing test equipment for testing of our standard pumps into the new area and adding data capture to all test parameters to allow them to be logged and monitored to allow unattended testing. Varley Pumps manufacture double helical gear pumps for oil transfer, processing and forced lubrication applications, these can be designed and manufactured in accordance with API676 when required. The range includes bespoke pump systems, twin set pump units and a range of standard pumps.
