Efficiency Improvement

United Pumps offer a range of solutions to improve efficiency Benefits include: • Energy Bill savings • Improved performance • Improved reliability


Rather than just remove and replace, United Pumps Australia offer a complete reconditioning service that calls on our in-house mechanical and hydraulic design expertise. If warranted, we can perform a design review, investigate reasons for faiilure and perhaps upgrade construction where warranted.

Restore Clearances

The amount of excess leakage flowing through worn wear rings can be determined by comparing the “as new” (or factory) with the current (worn) power vs. flow curves. As the clearance between pump wearing rings increases over time, the amount of flow that recirculates within the pump, from the discharge of the impeller to its suction, also increases.


Technology evolves and process conditions often change, leaving some older pumps operating badly from an efficiency and reliability standpoint. Re-engineering services include:

Performance Testing

As well as testing our own pumps, we regularly test pumps for others as well as benchmarking tests following service and repair. The test facility, together with our office and manufacturing workshops, is located in Sunshine, Victoria, Australia.
