Tsurumi says its explosion-proof pump line was designed to deliver efficiency and cost savings on a wide range of wastewater projects.

Glenn Wieczorek, managing director at Tsurumi says: “As we expand our portfolio with a modern, explosion-proof product line, which will allow us to enter new markets, we needed a seasoned professional to help us employ it and identify opportunities in large projects with specific demands. Chris is a dynamic professional with long-standing experience in the pump industry, and his expertise will be crucial for us to develop and maintain relationships with our customers in North America.”

Bristol has more than 20 years of experience in sales management and business development — half of it spent in the pump industry, working for companies such as Xylem, Mueller and PS Pumps & Process. 

The Avant Series was certified in accordance with FM Global explosion-proof specifications. 

Tsurumi says the pumps feature a modern design and IE3 premium efficiency motors that deliver high performance and withstand continuous duty cycles. 

According to Tsurumi, their exclusive closed-circuit cooling system utilises a water-glycol mixture, which prevents contamination of the system while cooling the motor. 

Additionally, customers will be able to order tailor-made Avant pumps from the factory, with specific configurations that match the demands of their jobs.
