Did You Know? HMD Kontro Are The Pioneers Of The Sealless Pump
In 1946, Geoffrey and Charles Howard founded the company, Hydraulic & Mechanical Developments Ltd. and a year later the first sealless magnetic drive pump was pioneered in Eastbourne, East Sussex.
The first electromagnetical sealless pumps were then manufactured for ICI to handle Dowtherm at 300°C. This sealless magnetic drive pump broke new ground in fluid handling technology and today HMD Kontro is globally recognised as the pioneer of sealless pump design, engineering and manufacturing.
Sealless magnetic drive pumps are the first choice for a wide range of applications and particularly for industries involving toxic substances as well as fine, corrosive and aggressive liquids. We hope you like the picture of one of the very first pumps we produced, which is on display in our lobby area at our premises in Eastbourne.
