SIMSITE® is a patented structural composite manufactured exclusively by SIMS. It is 100% machined, and utilizes a tri-dimensional weave, whichaffords it outstanding mechanical properties. SIMSITE®Products NEVER corrode in salt water, wastewater, sewage, or chlorinated water applications, and are excellent for many chemical applications.SIMSITE® Products are light weight, energy efficient, and stand up much better to corrosive environments, erosion, and cavitation than metallics, or other non-structural composites.

Withmost pumps and pump parts coming from outside of the United States, the reliability and quality of these materials and parts have substantially deteriorated over the past few years. These inferior products forcecustomers to replace or repair products much more rapidly.

Fortunately,SIMS,a specialized engineering company in the United States, manufactures machined, structural-engineered pumps, impellers, rings, sleeves, bearings, bushings, valves, mechanical seals, and more. Instead of just repairing a pump, or replacing it with a new pump of the same type or quality, SIMS offers better solutions and longer-lasting products for customers. All SIMS Pumps and Pump Parts are computer-engineered, designed, and precision machined (never cast or molded), with the objective of maximizing longevity and reliability. As a result, SIMSITE® Products are gradually taking market share from more traditional materials and products.

SIMS can manufacture obsolete parts for any centrifugal pump with quick deliveries.

SIMS focuses on life extension – a revolutionary concept in comparison to traditional pump manufacturers who make their money selling spare parts.

SIMSITE® Products outlast and outperform other products on the market, and will therefore significantly improve performance and reliability.Beyond performance, a look at total costs reveals that SIMSITE® Composites are an exceptional added value. An evaluation of maintenance, spare parts, inventory, and energy usage, shows SIMSITE® Composites are the best option for almost all pump and valve applications.

With the invention of the Sims Pump Valve for use in reciprocating pumps, Sims Pump Valve Company, Inc. was founded in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn in 1919 by Admiral SIMS and his brother.Growth necessitated first a move to downtown New York and then to the company’s present address in Hoboken, New Jersey.

From the outset, SIMS has offered its unique guarantee of customer satisfaction. Introduced by the founder of SIMS, this guarantee continues today as an integral part of operations.

In the first four decades that followed, SIMS was steadily at the helm providing maritime and other industries with valves of bronze, stainless steel, and Monel.The inherent “clattering” of the reciprocating pump valve caused by the pump rotator pounding against the disk lead to the invention of one of the first composites on the market - the SIMSITE® Reciprocating Pump Valve Disk.
