HAZLETON PUMPS also won the Product of the Year Award for the design and development of a slurry pump range that can operate under the harsh mining conditions in Southern Africa branded as the HIPPO Pump Slurry range. The technology has since been developed and adapted for mining and various other applications worldwide. 
The world’s first Medium/High Voltage High Head Submersible Dewatering Pump Range – capable of being used in explosive environments and complying to IEC 60079-1.  This range consists of 5 models capable of pumping up to 350 l/s at a head of 200 meters with an installed power of 1200kW and can operate on both 50Hz and 60Hz power supply.
This HIPPO Medium/High Voltage; High Head Submersible Pump Range using a single stage design was designed, developed and manufactured for acid mine dewatering and is mainly used underground. The unique feature of this pump is the utilization of Medium and High Voltage Power whilst being manufactured from specific materials which enables the pumping of acidic liquids containing solids.
HAZLETON PUMPS is currently marketing the HIPPO Submersible Slurry pump range internationally with more than 70% of all pumps being exported and Canada being the biggest user at present.





HAZLETON PUMPS won the top award at the annual South African Flameproof Association’s Simposium that was held at Khaya iBhubesi in the Free State on 29 October 2015.

Local pumps manufacturer wins big at

Seifsa awards

South African pumps manufacturer Hazleton Pumps International took top honours at the
inaugural Steel and Engineering Industries Federation of Southern Africa’s (Seifsa) Awards
for Excellence, winning two awards at the ceremony, which took place in May 28 at
Emperors Palace, in Ekurhuleni.
Hazleton Pumps picked up the Most Innovative Company of the Year award for the design,
development and manufacture of the world’s first medium/high voltage flameproof slurry
submersible pump.
The Hippo medium/high voltage submersible pumps range uses medium- and high-voltage
power supply in a slurry submersible pump using a single-stage design to pump high
volumes of slurry. The pumps were specifically designed and manufactured for Canadian
petroleum company Suncor’s oil sands operation in Fort McMurray, Canada, and, to date,
23 pumps have been put into operation by the miner.
This pumps range is manufactured from specific materials, which enables the pumping of
acidic liquid containing solids. It comprises several models capable of pumping up to 350 ℓ/s
with an installed power of 1 200 kW and can operate on both 50 Hz and 60 Hz power
supplies. All pumps are manufactured to IEC 60079 and IEC 60079 standards.
Although the medium/high voltage flameproof slurry submersible pump is the latest
development in the Hippo pumps range since the company’s inception in 1979, Hazleton
Pumps has continuously developed the range to meet the demands of clients through
customised engineering and advanced technology, facilitated by a team of experts and
accommodating a variety of applications and specific duties.
The Hippo pumps range has been designed, developed and manufactured in South Africa
over the past 20 years to be able to operate under the harsh South African mining
conditions. The company has a strong customer-centric approach to ensure that it forges
long-term, committed and sustainable customer relationships.
Meanwhile, Hazleton Pumps also scooped the Customer Service Company of the Year
award at the Seifsa Awards for Excellence, owing to the company’s efforts to ensure that
customers are supplied with a reliable, low-maintenance, sustainable and efficient product.
The award affirmed the company’s focus on ensuring good customer service and
satisfaction. As proof of Hazleton Pumps’ commitment to its customers, the company
negotiated a pump repair contract with Suncor, which would see all pumps returned to
South Africa for repairs and refurbishment. These pumps will be repaired at 30% less in
South Africa than in Canada, including the cost of shipping to and from South Africa. All
pump repairs are completed to the standards of newly manufactured pumps and carry the
same warranty as a new pump.
