—About Fluid Pumps
Fluid Pumps was Established in 1991. The founder, Blackie Swart, worked in the manufacturing industry, servicing and maintaining CNC machines. This involved electrical, electronic as well as mechanical engineering. With a background in electrical/electronic engineering he later got involved in pump motor protection which led him to the pump market.
Fluid Pumps became an importer of submersible pumps from Italy and later Taiwan.
Experienced in the field, we designed and manufactured a wide range of submersible products for the Wastewater- and Mining Sectors, to suit their working conditions. Design and drawings are done on Inventor and Auto Cad Software by an in-house Draughtsman. We have registered a number of patents on World First Inventions.
Fluid Pumps is situated in Jet Park, Boksburg – 5 minutes away from Johannesburg‘s OR Tambo International Airport. The factory floor covers an area of 2,000m² while the office block extend over 600m².
Manufacturing has its own challenges and to maintain high standards, quality control is the most important aspect of a well-engineered product.
A quality product starts with a quality casting. Fluid Pumps soon realised that the only way to ensure quality is by starting its own foundry. The foundry has a capacity of one ton with a five hundred kilogram induction furnace.
All Parts are machined in-house where a high standard is maintained. Problems that occur are handled and solved immediately.
Our motivation is based on Problem Solving.
All work is done to ISO 9001/9002, IEC 60079-0, IEC 60079-1 standards. Audits are carried out every 4 months by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS), as Fluid Pumps is a SABS Ex approved manufacturer and repairer. Product sample testing is done once a year.
Fluid Pumps is privately owned and does not form part of any group.
