Akzo Nobel submitted their enquiry to Crest for 2 different pumps, for two different parts of their onsite operation. The first pump would need to be able to handle a high viscosity liquid (255 centistokes)  in an Atex Zone 1 environment. Crest Pumps supplied a stainless steel, closed impeller SHC pump in under 3 weeks as requested.

A Magnetically driven AMX553 was also supplied for a separate transfer process that was atex zone 1 certified and despatched in just 4 days.


GE came to Crest for a solvent plant based in Hong Kong. GE needed pumps that could empty sumps containing a corrosive chemical solution. Crest supplied 3 VSL vertical pumps as the VSL range are able to run dry, and have very little maintenance requirements – allowing them to be a ‘fit and forget’ pump. whilst handling the harshest of applications. The pumps were custom built to fit into the shallow tanks. The flexibility of the design allowed GE to get these pumps in operation quickly alleviating downtime.


Brenntag approached Crest with an enquiry after Crest was recommended by another well known chemical manufacturer. They needed 3 small pumps capable of handling a caustic based application that could run efficiently for long periods throughout the day. The pumps would be used primarily used for transferring solvent chemicals from one system to another.

Crest supplied 3 PP22 mechanical seal pumps that were of compact size and could run absolutely efficiently, the PP range has a capacity of up to 26 m3/hr and a head to 22 metres. The pump was built from solid in our unique in-house production plant and was built in the PVC material with a PTFE impeller option.
