MORE THAN 30 YEARS AT YOUR SERVICE
Debem has been operating in the liquid transfer sector for more than 30 years.
A pioneering business specialising in industrial pumps for highly corrosive and aggressive applications.
The entire company philosophy hinges on close cooperation with the end user and customer feedback, thus establishing a highly-effective technological design and development system for products and services that has gained the approval of an increasing number of leading players in various sectors.
Debem offers a new range of effective services, supplying customers with technical and sales information that helps to select the right product for every type of use.
SALES INFORMATION AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT CALL CENTRE
Customers can phone for advice in making the right choice of product and chemical compatibility.
THE TECHNICAL SUPPORT AND SALES SERVICE
You can phone or e-mail in order to receive advice on technical specifications, pump and system installation and optimisation or the fluid pumping process.
The BOXER and CUBIC diaphragm pumps, the MB and IM centrifugal pumps, the TR barrel transfer pumps, the EQUAFLUX pulsation dampener and the DUALFLUX flow inverters are entirely designed and constructed in Italy by Debem who is also the proprietor of their patents.
The Debem engineering department, and in particular the research and development department, is continually involved in new projects and product innovation.
The primary objective of customer satisfaction has led to the introduction of modular pump design allowing tailor-made assembly with suitable components and materials for the intended use.
WAREHOUSE AND ASSEMBLY
A management system that controls the minimum stock of every component and preassembled part of all pumps in the catalogue means that when receiving an order Debem can advise product availability in real time with fast assembly and certain delivery times.
TESTING AND INSPECTION
Quality certification procedures specify the tests and inspections to be carried out on each and every pump, therefore no random sampling, either during assembly whilst dry or operation when filled with fluid. The data obtained is used to check compliance with the required parameters.
Technological innovation, modular design and quality ( "Verniciatura industriale" - may '07)
A clear idea: design innovative hi-tech pumps using materials and components capable of withstanding the most testing and aggressive conditions, easy to install and highly-efficient for dependable, long-lasting service. This is the corporate philosophy of Debem from Busto Arsizio that has been operating in the liquid transfer sector for more than 25 years, establishing itself as one of the leading players specialising in the manufacture of industrial pumps for highly corrosive and aggressive applications.
The company, that has carved a niche for itself in a market where the most distinguished and technologically-advanced competition comes from the leading industrial countries (Germany, USA, UK, France and Japan), came into being as a result of the insight and desire to expand of its founder and current owner: Marco De Bernardi.
Its range of corrosion-resistant pumps, in particular air-operated double-diaphragm pumps for chemicals, of plastic (polypropylene, PVDF, ECTFE) and metal (stainless steel and aluminium) construction have become increasingly popular in the most important sectors of Italian and foreign industry: chemicals, textiles, food, ceramics, electronics, zinc plating, paint.
Debem's growth figures are worthy of note: after starting off in a small workshop it has ended up in its impressive new premises. An important part of the company's success stems from the establishment of an in-house research and development department. This is unusual for a small business but has certainly produced its results. Initially established with a view to improving existing products (with studies regarding the use of new materials, size reduction, optimisation of current technology) and increasing cost effectiveness without affecting the already high quality standards, the research project has enabled the development of highly-innovative products of which the Boxer and Cubic series are shining examples.
MODULAR DESIGN, RESEARCH AND QUALITY
"Our entire range of pumps is exclusively designed, developed and manufactured by our technical staff and we own the patents. Our flagship is a modular pump design that allows custom assembly using components and materials that suit individual customer requirements. We can advise availability in real time thanks to a system that manages and controls the minimum stock of every component and preassembled part of all pumps in the catalogue. All our diaphragm pumps are available ready-assembled for immediate delivery. It requires just a few minutes for them to be configured to customer specifications and then shipped. Likewise all spares are kept in our warehouse ready for immediate shipment, whilst the customer has the option of purchasing individual spares or complete kits."
"We are certified to ISO 9001 and our quality procedure stipulates the tests and inspections to be performed on every pump we manufacture and not randomly, we have developed a highly-effective technological design and development system for products and services as a result of close cooperation with the end user",
FOCUS ON DIAPHRAGMS
"Diaphragms are the element subjected to greatest wear and stress during suction and pumping, a process in which they must also withstand chemical attack - our guide explains, getting to the root of an essential technical aspect - correct assessment and choice is therefore of crucial importance to the life of a diaphragm, as well as to investments and maintenance costs. Thanks to a modern design process, destructive tests and in-depth analysis of the results, we have developed a new generation of long-life diaphragms whose shape and size offer a greater working surface and improved load redistribution that reduces material stress and yield to a minimum".
Debem diaphragm pumps have been issued with ATEX certification by TÜV Hanover in accordance with Directive 94/9/EC and can therefore be used in explosive or potentially-explosive atmospheres according to the construction materials.
Debem offers five extensive product ranges designed for specific applications:
- Cubic and Boxer pumps: air-operated diaphragm pumps feature strength, power, self-priming operation (can run dry and with negative suction heads) even under exacting conditions and the ability to handle high viscosity fluids containing suspended particles;
- MB pumps: resin horizontal centrifugal pumps that operate with a direct-drive electric motor and are particularly suitable for fixed installations with the pump outside the drum, high flow rate and fast transfer speed of corrosive liquids;
- IM pumps: resin vertical centrifugal pumps coupled with a direct drive electric motor designed for fixed installations with pump immersed in the tank, high flow rate and fast transfer speed of extremely dirty liquids;
- TR pumps: drum transfer pumps coupled with a direct drive compressed-air or electric motor (see models). Being portable, they are ideal for fast transfer of clean corrosive liquids from drums;
- Equaflux dampeners: air-operated automatic pulsation dampeners with diaphragm are installed on discharge lines with variations in fluid pressure in order to reduce pulsations and consequent vibrations or water hammer, thus protecting process equipment.
"The Boxer and Cubic series are both fitted with a special air-operated heat exchanger coaxial to the shaft and without external components, this is a unique piece of engineering, offering excellent protection against the formation of ice and something you will still not find in other pumps currently on the market. Polypropylene, ECTFE, aluminium and AISI 316 stainless-steel versions are available. All pumps in these two series are tested to ensure maximum safety under difficult conditions (i.e. in the presence of particularly aggressive and viscous fluids), they can run whilst dry without suffering damage, do not require an air lubricant and are self-priming. Components are easily replaceable, whilst unskilled staff can perform maintenance without problems".
Debem introduced its range for the painting and general surface treatment sector at the "Saloni della Verniciatura: Polveri, Cleantech, Ecocoating 2007" Trade Show held in Verona from the 14th to 16th June, offering advice on fluid transfer systems, in particular paints.
