Specialised show attracts world players

March 2000 News

South Africa's newest industrial event, tightly focused on pumps, valves and pipes is striking the right note with companies both locally and internationally and big names are signing up to take part in both the conference and the exhibition.

Pumps, Valves and Pipes Africa 2000 exhibition, to be held at Kyalami Exhibition Centre in Midrand from 6 to 8 June, is taking shape and promises to be an exciting event. Not only will exhibitors be able to demonstrate their latest products, including bearings, transmissions, seals, gaskets and electrical and geared motors, but new technology will also be the focus of the conference running alongside the exhibition.

Although final papers have not been selected, companies who have indicated an interest in giving an address include such well known names as Alstrom Electrical, Saer Elettropompe (Italy), BKS Consultburo, Coverco (Italy), the CSIR, SABS, Sasol and Sulzer. Topics have been divided into the seven market sectors that were identified as being the most important for pumps, valves and pipes – namely agriculture and horticulture; government utilities and local authorities; civil and industrial engineering; manufacturing; mining; food, beverage, dairy and brewing; and pulp, paper and petrochemicals.

Italian companies Saer Elettropompe and Coverco (submersible motors and pumps) will also be exhibiting their products together with Malaysian company, Unimech Engineering (valves, fittings and hoses), and South African companies such as Grundfos, Letaba Industrial Pumps, Cyclone Industries and Dorbyl Water, to name but a few.

Multibillion rand pump manufacturer, Grundfos Pumps, took the decision to participate in Pumps, Valves and Pipes Africa because it will give them an opportunity to have greater exposure to the industrial sector. "We are already well known in the agricultural market, but we want to expand our operations in the industrial market, particularly mining," said Grundfos Business Development Manager Poul Mortensen. "The timing is also perfect for the launch of our new range of non-corrosive titanium pumps which have a large number of applications in industry and are very competitively priced."

"The SA Bureau of Standards' (SABS) support gives the show professional status as the SABS is well respected by industry," he added.

Peet Snyman, Business Development Manager with Letaba Industrial Pumps, believes this show will enable the company not only to promote its extensive product ranges and new extensions, but it will also facilitate getting feedback from the market. "We have attended other shows where pumps are not the main attraction and consequently we did not achieve the response we had hoped for. This show, being more specialised, should attract visitors who have specific pumping needs and we are hoping to get better long-term benefit." Letaba Dewatering will be sharing the stand to demonstrate its range of submersible and self-priming centrifugal pumps and a new DC battery-operated submersible unit."
