New Pumps Delivered to British Sugar

Amarinth, a leading company specialising in the design, application and manufacture of centrifugal pumps and associated equipment to the Oil & Gas, petrochemical, chemical and industrial markets, has just delivered new pumps to British Sugar and in addition has further expanded its organisation to service the growing demand for pumps from the UK manufacturing sector.

British Sugar once again turned to Amarinth when they needed new pumps for their sugar production process at their Newark factory in Nottinghamshire. During the extraction of sugar from beet, the ‘thin juice’ sugary water from the purification process is pumped through a falling film juice evaporation process which boils the water off to produce syrup known as ‘thick juice’ which then passes to the crystallisation process. A stainless steel impeller was designed to pump the sticky syrup reliably and an AES CDSA mechanical seal was added to contain the fluid. Hydrostatic and performance tests were completed at Amarinth’s comprehensive facility before delivery within an 18 week deadline.

This was the first order from British Sugar taken by Richard Barnes, Amarinth’s new UK Sales Manager. Richard joined Amarinth this year following previous successful sales roles in the engineering & manufacturing, food & drink and defence sectors. He is a further addition to the Amarinth team at its headquarters in Rendlesham, Suffolk following a strong upsurge over the last 18 months in orders for pumps and spares from the UK manufacturing sector.

With new orders flooding in from other long-standing customers in the manufacturing sector, such as recent orders for replacement pumps from Lallemand Baking in Felixstowe, Amarinth is now well-positioned and fully staffed to support its existing customer base in the UK as well as new clients as the economy goes from strength to strength.

Oliver Brigginshaw, Managing Director of Amarinth, added: “We are delighted with the recent demand for new equipment from the UK manufacturing sector which shows that the economy has turned a corner and that businesses are now starting to invest again for the future. Our confidence is underlined with the appointment of Richard to our team to support our expanding customer base in the UK. He brings a wealth of experience within the sectors we supply and our customers can look forward to continuing to receive excellent service from Amarinth for many years to come.”
