Why you should invest in a Pressure Vessel

14 July 2015 by Sarah Sinclair

Ultra Pro Vessels

A pressure vessel is a container designed to hold material at a high pressure. The Zilmet Ultra Pro Pressure Vessel can be applied to any type of pump, which makes the product hassle free!

Zilmet manufacture high quality, reliable and cost-effective vessels which maximise efficiency to where you apply them. We want to make sure that our customers are getting the best products available, and this is definitely one to invest in.

To allow the pump to be suitable for drinking water, a butyl rubber membrane is used. There are many other benefits of using this, such as being able to use the tank with aggressive water. This is because the water only contacts the membrane, therefore there would be no interference with the rest of the tank. Fortunately, these membranes are easily replaceable meaning the lifetime of the tank is pretty much unlimited!

The pressure vessels have both domestic and commercial uses and are ideal to use in water booster sets, heating pressurisation and fill sets.

The stainless steel flange on the pressure vessels strengthen the product, ensuring a strong lifelong vessel. As well as the product being able to reach a maximum temperature of 99°C, there is a maximum working pressure of 10 bar.

This excellent product has yet another benefit! For a limited time only, we have dropped the prices of these Ultra Pro Vessels. These reduced prices are not to be missed, whether you need one now or whether you order one for a spare – this product is a must have for your pump!

Still Paying For Mains Water?

20 November 2014 by Chloé Bleackley


Still Paying For Mains Water?


With the amount of rainfall we get in the United Kingdom, and if this past weeks anything to go by you're missing out on using rainwater as a free water resource. 

Water is essential for farming and many other uses, yet we often take it for granted. Using the rainwater that we are all guilty of watching fall straight down the drain and investing in a rainwater harvesting system could be the fastest return on investment you make. The system will quickly pay for itself and rainwater is: 

  • Better for irrigation as it doesn't contain treatment additives such as chlorine. 
  • Better than mains water for spraying some crop protection products. 

Rainwater can also be used for a multitude of purposes including private domestic usage such as washing machines, toilet flushing and garden watering. 

Our system has saved us a fortune over the years and we would like to help you do the same. 

The benefits are endless, that's why, we're sure you'd like to know about our new range of rainwater storage tanks. Our tanks range in size from as little as 150 litres to 30,000 litres so we'll have a tank to suit most of your applications. 

Our storage tanks are:

  • Manufactured using the highest quality UV stabilised polyethylene. 
  • Tough and durable due to there one piece construction. 
  • Potable tanks are WRAS Approved. 

Different Rainwater Harvesting Applications

We are so confident in the quality of our new tanks that we've backed them with a solid 10 year guarantee for your reassurance.

What could you do with an extra £4,000 a year?

27 March 2014 by David Critchley and Chloé Bleackley


Want to know how to save over £4,000 on your farms annual water bill?

That’s exactly what one of our customers has done through installing a groundwater recovery system to function and water his farm.

How does this work?

Our customer installed a simple shallow well using prefabricated concrete rings. He surrounded the rings with brick rubble to allow the ground water to seep into the well.

An Ebara IDROGO high pressure submersible pump was installed in the well and pipe work laid back to the farm.

Control equipment for the pump was installed in the dairy where the mains water pipe was cut off and connected to the pump system. The dairy is still run from mains water but the rest of the farm is feed from the well. A loose length of pipe is on stand-by so that the mains water can be quickly re-connected in case of failure of the well supply.


“While we’re milking, the pump runs the plate cooler and the warm water runs into a water trough outside. The cows like the warm water and they drink a lot more than they would if it was cold. The cows are re-using their own body heat so it’s got to save energy and ultimately feed costs”


Prior to installing this groundwater recovery system this farmer used mains water supply to function his farm. Since the installation, he’s saved £1,100 per quarter, that’s £4,400 annually!


“I can’t think of anything else we could do which would give such a quick return on investment”

Do Not Buy A Chopper Pump For Your Farm Until You Have Read This

02 August 2013 by David Critchley


It’s a popular misconception that to pump water with suspended solids, you need to chop it all up with some kind of macerator. This is not true. Here are the facts:

Macerator pumps were designed to pump human waste through small bore pipes over long distances, and manufacturers will demonstrate them chewing up a T shirt and spitting it out as in a million pieces - impressive stuff! That’s fine when the scissor action of the blades is new and sharp, but what happens after a month or two when the razor sharp edges have become dull? If you’re in any doubt, go and grab a pair of scissors and a T shirt.

And now try straw, silage and cow hair. You can’t do it and you don’t need to.
*Leading to expensive repair bills*


Vortex pumps can easily pass solids without chopping them!

Vortex pumps have a rotating impeller which creates a fast moving swirl of water. The centrifugal force of this vortex escapes through the outlet on the side of the chamber, creating a depression at the inlet, drawing more material into the chamber. Because the impeller is located high in the chamber, most of the pumped media never comes into contact with the impeller and so solids and fibrous material pass straight through.

The Ebara DW VOX submersible pump is one of the most reliable vortex pumps on the market and one of our best sellers for agricultural waste water. It can pass solids up to 50mm (2”) in diameter up to heights of over 15 metres. It is made entirely from corrosion resistant stainless steel and is available in single or three phase versions.

We are so confident in this pumps ability; we would like to offer you a 30 day no risk trial on your farm.
