United Kingdom

Sundyne is excited to announce that the VapourView® sealless pump condition monitoring instrument has been selected as a finalist for the prestigious British Pump Industry Awards in the category for Technical innovation of the Year (Product).


Designed and manufactured by Sundyne HMD in Eastbourne, England, VapourView broadens the scope of application for sealless pump technology, extending its economic and environmental benefits where sensitivity to vaporization in the pumped fluid is a concern, such as in hydrocarbon processes.


Launched in mid-2016 with cUL hazardous area certification, the VapourView device provides the end user with vital information on the presence of gas in a pump's internal flow regime and forewarns of adverse conditions likely to affect bearing lubrication or magnetic coupling cooling in a sealless magnetic drive pump. With this early warning available, end users can maximize up-time and extend equipment life.


Martin Stuart, Product Development Manager at Sundyne HMD, commented: "We are delighted that VapourView is one of six products to be shortlisted for this prestigious award. Our dedicated technical team has developed this unique, innovative product to bring sealless magnetic drive pumps to new audiences who can no benefit from lower maintenance costs, enhanced health and environmental safety, leak-free operation and long life durability."


Founded by the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) in 2000, the Pump Industry Awards have become the recognized platform for celebrating significant industry achievement. The Technical Innovation of the Year award distinguishes companies that produce the most innovative pump, pumping system or other pump-related production, new or redeveloped, that has been introduced to the market within the last 24 months.
