Our SHC Range of Horizontal centrifugal mechanical seal pumps are suitable for a wide variety of applications and have been a market leader in the food and beverage preparation industry for over 10 years.

The SHC range is available with Open/Closed or Vortex impeller options.

The open impeller and vortex impeller are suitable for pumping aggressive liquids with solids. The advantage of the open impeller option is that it is designed so it’s almost as efficient as the closed option counterpart.

Built to a heavy duty standard in a stainless steel construction, the SHC range is optimized to combat applications with high viscosity.


The vortex option is built with a recessed impeller to ensure most of the liquid passing through the casing does not come into contact with the impeller. This allows solids up to 60% of the size of the discharge port to pass through freely. Long and filamentary solids can also pass through the pump without causing any clogging.

The closed impeller option is suitable for clean liquids and offers the highest efficiency, minimising your operational running costs and making the pump pleasingly eco-friendly.

Heavy duty Build

Our SHC range of Horizontal centrifugal mechanical seal pumps are built specifically to deal with a variety of corrosive and arduous applications ranging from chemical transfer to food and beverage preparation.

316 Stainless Steel

Constructed from 316 stainless steel means the SHC range is particularly suitable for the water treatment and food/beverage industries.

Open/Closed/Vortex Impeller options

The open impeller and Vortex impeller are suitable for aggressive liquids with suspended solids, high viscosities (<700cP), or pumping gas/air (<15% air). The vortex impeller option features a recessed impeller; meaning over 60% of the liquid does not come into contact with the impeller – minimising risk of clogging.

High Efficiency

The SHC range has an operating efficiency of up to 80%, which is good news for your environmental footprint.

Flexibility to design requirements

Crest offer a totally flexible design specification, meaning a pump can be totally built to your business’s specifications. There are different seal, motor or connection options for the SHC range to be customised to your requirements.

18 Month Warranty

The whole range of mechanically sealed pumps come with 18 months warranty, as an assurance to your business that our pumps are quality built.

No Obsolete Part Policy

All of our pumps come with our No Obsolete Parts policy, meaning if you have a Crest pump for 40 years, we will still be able to provide you with parts and an exact replacement, thus minimising disruption to your production line and keeping running costs to a minimum.
