Chemical pumping proves its worth in the wider world
28 Apr 2021
As our March/April edition went to press, the Government was releasing early details of its legislative initiative to promote greater energy efficiency in the economy
The sustainability benefits, if realised, would be impressive: extending the life of some products by up to a decade, with appreciable benefits for end users and the environment.
And while some manufacturers may bridle at the restrictions on so-called ‘built-in obsolescence’, others will find opportunity in the rise in demand for replacement parts.
It should focus more attention on the need for products which are better able to stay the course and increase appreciation of the importance of total life investment when purchasing machinery.
Chemical pumping systems are designed for environments and media which present the greatest challenges – hazardous situations with abrasive, viscous and corrosive materials.
Not surprisingly then, chemical products are increasingly being used in wider numbers of applications in which their qualities of toughness and durability have proven eminently transferable.
Analysts predict a half decade of encouraging growth worldwide. And while it may not be surprising to see the expanding markets of the Middle East and East Asia offering huge potential, it might be less expected to find Europe cited too.
In fact this is not so surprising, given that the emphasis on sustainability is profound and increasing in importance, as governments and consumers combine to support this.
It’s also of course a good business opportunity for the sector and who would deny the advantages of enlightened self interest?
