(Radolfzell/Germany) Allweiler AG, a Colfax company, has been manufacturing pumps in Germany for 150 years, making it the country's oldest pump manufacturer. To celebrate, Allweiler is looking for the three oldest Allweiler pumps still in service anywhere in the world. Submissions will be accepted until the end of December 2010 and the operators will receive a modern replacement pump at no charge.
Since Allweiler's founding in 1860, building extremely long-lived and reliable pumps has been one of the company's most important objectives. Having the right materials, designs, and configurations was just as important back then as it is today. 'Just as we optimize our pumps today to minimize overall costs for the operator with high efficiency and long maintenance intervals, 50 or 100 years ago Allweiler pumps were designed to be incredibly reliable. Giving customers the best possible solutions has always been our focus,' according to Stefan Kleinmann, Vice-President of the Industry business segment an d member of the Allweiler AG executive board. The success of this strategy is evidenced by numerous patents, awards, and innovative solutions from every era of the company's history, including 150 years of market leadership.
During its 150th anniversary year, Allweiler is looking for pumps that have been in service for several decades. According to Stefan Kleinmann, 30 or 40 years of service is nothing unusual, but 50 years or more is worth looking at. Allweiler AG will offer the operators of the three oldest pumps the latest pump technology at no charge. This may include, for example, cutting-edge intelligent monitoring and control systems that extend maintenance intervals, immediately detect unusual operating conditions or changes to the pumped liquid, and ensure that the pumps deliver the necessary performance while consuming the lowest amount of energy possible. Achieving the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) has been the top priority of research and development efforts for several years.
Make submissions by December 31, 2010. A photo and brief description of the operating conditions are sufficient for initial contact via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Allweiler will display the three oldest pumps in its demonstration room.
