Orifice Unions Go Stainless

Jenni Rose Latest News Leave a Comment

As part of our range of spares and accessories, we offer various orifice fittings (unions, brass plates, other fittings) and many customers take advantage of these when carrying out installations and maintenance. Machined orifice plates have proven difficult for customers to source (so, of course we can help, this is what we’re here for). They are often in brass, but …

Flying High at SEP

These are strange times indeed – and we are very conscious that for many people they are worrying, uncertain and in many cases much worse as lives are lost. Greater Manchester is also currently subject to a ‘semi-lockdown’, and our MD is in quarantine prior to a minor operation required by his daughter. So of course it is with mixed …

As many of our customers will know, pre-fabricated pump initiation boards are one of the products upon which SEP was founded.

Dry Riser Test Pumps Up

Newsdesk Latest News Leave a Comment

Sometimes, the best laid plans go awry…and in contrast, some things that were not planned at all just seem to work.

Newsdesk Latest News Leave a Comment

Rob, our MD, has been managing customer demand, staffing and furlough rotations throughout the Covid-19 lockdown.

SEP Downloads Redesigned

Newsdesk Latest News Leave a Comment

Since we’ve had a bit more ‘working from home and thinking’ time, we’ve been doing lots of work in the background including redesigning the downloads section of our website.
