The Menu Link to the top right --> Brands, will take you to common products within each brand .. some are there, many to go .. currently being constructed !
The sale of a pump is just the end of a process, the selection, suitability, consideration and on going running costs are the primary drivers and ultimately the cost savers.
Selection criteria needs to be evaluated, the availability of on going spares, the efficiency of the pumps that we narrow down, your system interaction with the pumps ability to meet required duty points, all of these items are considered before we offer a pump. With access to over 250 brands of pump from around the world, we are able to size, select, supply and support every pump that leaves our premises, after all, we are pump specialists !
" .. it is the support that you have given us that we value most. The assistance you been able to provide has been excellent, making Assett highly regarded by everyone .. "
With a sales team full of experience and expertise, we can follow up the selection process, with total cost of ownership (TCO) considerations to provide you with a pump suited to your duty, at a cost suited to your budget. The costs may not be evident without looking at the TCO, the savings in power, the liekly repair cycles and costing, and that is why we don't import unknown and unsupported knock off pumps from the various unknown pump manufacturers.
With brands like Ebsray, Wilden, Nash, Grundfos, Flowserve, Watson Marlow Bredel, Iwaki and Seepex as key partners, sole distributorships, or OEM representatives, we stand behind every pump we sell. We know that the R&D behind each of these companies means a quick response if you have a problem, our access to the production facilities means we can expedite an order, and our tight integration with these OEMs allows us to offer the best product at the very best price.
" We are lucky in SA to having a company such as AME. Your knowledge in Fluid Mechanic (pump, pipe and controlling system) is second to none..."

Our Prime Brands
ame sources pumps from around the globe, we do have some preferred iconic brands of course, and they have been well proven in the field by giving our clients decades of trouble free service. This is more important now than ever before, with cheap imports, copies and knock offs flooding the market, aside from questionable safety and performance, lack of technical information, the lack of future support, and the moral implications of a wasteful consumer society, they are often supported by only one importer in Australia, which can leave you in the lurch if things go wrong and the sole importer of that container load of pumps is no longer around!
Companies like Grundfos, who are arguably market leaders in a number of fields, with massive amounts of reinvestment into their own research and development, often imitated, never beaten, their pumps are generally the most copied units that we see. Grundfos started in 1962 with circulators, ’67 ( a great year ! ) saw their first production of SS submersibles, and 1972 vertical multistage pumps made an appearance. They have been at the forefront of innovative pumping solutions ever since, and we are proud to be closely associated them. Oh, they sell pumps in every part of the world too, and their head office is here in Adelaide, so if the suburb of Torrensville was to fall into a sinkhole, you can still get all the backup, support and service you will ever need! ame is proud to announce that we have been assigned the sole Industrial Dealer moniker by Grundfos for South Australia.
Flowserve are the new Thompson Kelly & Lewis, manufacturer of some of the most reliable pumping equipment in Australia. We have clients right now who still utilise their KL Model 50’s and 70’s, Supertitan and Hydrotitan pumps and even older Worthington and Thompson BGH pumps every day, day in, day out. Flowserve is the large American based company that purchased them some years ago, and brought with them the Durco Chemical Process pumps, the HPX API 610 pumps and a myriad of more industry specific units that many clients standardise on across Australia, and all over the world. The Total Cost of Ownership for a quality built unit from Flowserve is easily justifiable, more environmentally sustainable, and able to be customised to suit your application. Did you know we have recently been able to get drawings for units built in the 1940’s from Flowserve with spare parts still able to be manufactured! Then again you can trace their products back through their current truly global manufacturing base to 1790 .. ame have only been distributors of TKL/Flowserve product for a few decades in comparison, and the majority of those decades old pumps, remain very serviceable, and perform daily duties, in true workhorse fashion. Flowserve still manufacture the core TKL product here in Australia too, just another reason we are so proud to support them.
Ebsray is another long established company providing quality product for over 60 years. Fueling up your car, your plane, your train or your bus ? Chances are, during at least one, and likely many of the stages of the manufacture, your fuel it would have passed through Ebsray pumps. An iconic Australian company, recently purchased by a large multinational to further improve and develop the markets these pumps are found in, I don’t think there would be a refinery in Australia that doesn’t have at least one Ebsray, & generally lots. Refueling stations, bitumen pumping, truck loading / unloading, LPG delivery and transfer, you’ve seen them, you just might not realise it ! ame have been proudly distributing and supporting Ebsray pumps in South Australia for decades ! Oh and Ebsray still manufacture here in Australia as well .. bloody legends ..

Some of the toughest damned submersibles we've seen! A huge range, giving us options for every application, from water and wastewater through to high temp and corrosive. Tsurumi pumps are so reliable, you'll forget you've got one.
Tsurumi Submersible corrosion-resistant pumps are made of stainless steel (304 or 316) and titanium. Because these materials are used, the pumps can handle chemical fluids of low pH value (e.g., corrosive acidic fluid), as well as seawater. The corrosion-resistant pumps use highly corrosion-resistant materials for all parts that are exposed to fluids, including the impeller, casing, motor frame, outer cover, strainer stand, bend, flange and sealing parts.
Tsurumi puts particular effort into developing submersible pumps made of 316 stainless steel casting. In recent years, polluted water and runoff from mines and quarries have been cited as social problems in many countries, to the point that demand for pumps that can handle these fluids has been increasing year by year. In fact, more than 40% of the runoff from mines is strongly acidic with a pH value of less than 4. To meet this application, Tsurumi has aggressively continued development of all stainless steel pumps that are made of 316 stainless steel casting.
Because they are made of stainless steel casting, the pumps are resistant to wastewater containing abrasive substances, as well as corrosive fluids. That is, these pumps deliver the durability needed in harsh fields where pumps made of aluminium, stainless steel and cast iron suffer damage in a matter of weeks, if not days. More specifically, principal parts of the LH/LH-W-14 and SFQ series are made of 316 stainless steel casting, which considerably improves product reliability in comparison with stainless steel in applications involving heavy-duty work. Therefore, Tsurumi’s stainless steel pumps can serve in harsh environments such as mines and quarries, as well as in chemical plants and wastewater treatment plants, thus covering a wide range of applications.
Furthermore, Tsurumi offers seawater pumps that use titanium for parts exposed to fluids. The combination of resin and titanium enables a lightweight compact design that is the most suitable for handling seawater.
For High Temperature Liquids Tsurumi manufactures submersible pumps to handle liquids up to 80°C. Many are already in service at sites that need to discharge high temperature liquids, including industrial wastewater from power plants and steel mills, and hot spring discharge from mines in volcanic zones.
Tsurumi’s standard specification pumps can move liquids of up to 40°C, but Rank 60 and 80 pumps are available as options for liquids of 60° and 80°C, respectively. Insulation class, rubber materials, lubrication and bearing grease are upgraded for each temperature rank.
Backed by years of experience and know-how, Tsurumi develops hot liquid pumps to withstand harsh working conditions.
