Varley gear pumps are double helical gear pumps, this gives a smooth even flow and quieter operation. We have extensive knowledge of Varley pumps. John Holmes originally helped in the design of the pumps and has passed his experience on to Alex Holmes.
Alex Holmes has dealt with Varley pumps for almost 20 years in that time he has built and repaired, selected and sold thousands of pumps.
The varley range is primarily used for oils and cover flows from 0.5 igpm to over 200 igpm at pressures up to 200 psi. We offer the pump with gland packing or mechanical seal, with or without relief valve, bareshaft or motorised.
Varley gear pumps are used extensively on diesel engines such as the Ruston, Mirrlees andMAN engines to provide fuel and lubrication. It is also used in many heavy industrial applications as a lubrication pump. Large bearings, gear boxes etc found in quarries, power stations and manufacturing plants often have Varley pumps which been running for years without problem.
Every Varley pump is manufactured under the ISO9001 programme and tested to YOUR exact requirements. We welcome outside inspections from Lloyds, Bureau Veritas, RINA and Det Norse Veritas.
