Read more to find out why you could benefit from a Selwood pump for your site or project.
Why Choose Selwood?
BUILD QUALITY – Selwood pump ends are manufactured in the UK to the highest of quality standards. Being a rental company, Selwood designed and built their range of pumps to handle the harshest of applications and the rigours of the rental sector.
AUTO-PRIMING – the Selwood ‘H’, ‘D’ and ‘S’ ranges are all fitted with the world-renowned SELPRIME Diaphragm type priming system, providing strong, fast priming from dry. This priming system is easy to maintain and does not expel any oil mist, unlike rotary vane and compressor prime systems making it the environmentally friendly option.
DRY-RUNNING CAPABILITY – The Selwood pump design incorporates a mechanical seal immersed in an oil bath, allowing it to run dry for extended periods.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY – With the option of fully enclosed, lockable canopies the Selwood pump sets are not only ‘Super Silent’ but also fully bunded and have a priming system that does not expel any oil mist.

Durability and Longevity
Selwood pumps are built to last. This was proven when Sanepar, a Brazilian wastewater company, put an ‘S’ pump to the test.
Sanepar is responsible for all waste treatment in Brazil. Because this industry is constrained by environmental regulation, Sanepar only wanted the best in solutions and equipment. Sanepar partnered with Aquamec, a leading wastewater and environmental solutions specialist, to carry out this task. Both companies were in agreement that a high-performing solid handling pump was required. Sanepar recommended that a performance trial be conducted before purchasing a pump.
A seventeen-year-old Seltorque S150 pump was selected for the pump flow test. The Selwood pump met its advertised specifications: a total head of 27m, maximum solids size of 100 mm and a maximum pump speed of 1,800 rpm.
The success of this test proves that Selwood pumps are tough, durable and enduring. It is a viable addition to your business.
