Eastbourne, United Kingdom, July 21, 2017 -- Sundyne is proud to announce that the VapourView sealless magnetic drive pump condition monitoring system has won the prestigious Technical Innovation of the Year award at the 2017 British Pump Industry Awards.


Developed by HMD Kontro, the VapourView monitoring system is cUL and ATEX certified and works with API 685 sealless magnetic drive pumps.  The system is used by process operators in refineries, petrochemical and chemical plants to warn for the presence of gas within the process fluids, which can damage pumps and present a dangerous combustion risk.  VapourView also extends process uptime and the overall operating life of HMD Kontro sealless magnetic drive pumps.


Martin Stuart, product development manager, HMD Kontro -- accepted the award at the ceremony, stating, "while our technical team foresaw that the development of VapourView would broaden the scope of sealless pump technology, we did not envision the honor of winning this internationally renowned award for innovation."


Founded by the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) in 2000, the Pump Industry Awards program has grown steadily to become the recognized platform for honoring significant industry achievement.


"Gaining such a prestigious accolade has confirmed VapourView as a ground-breaking technology in the pump industry, " said David Clark, general manager of HMD Kontro.  "We are introducing sealless magnetic drive pumps to new process operators who will benefit from lower maintenance costs, enhanced safety, leak-free operation and long pump operating life."
