Transamerica Delaval Ends Its Technical Assistance Agreement With IMO AB

Transamerica Delaval Inc. has dissolved its joint technical assistance agreement with IMO AB of Stockholm, Sweden. Henceforth the name of the division will, be the Pyramid"' Pump Division of Transamerica Delaval Inc., and the registered trademark IMO will no longer be used to describe the division, or any of its pumps or other products.

J. Kenneth Lippincott, general manager, stated that the action will have no impact on existing business arrangements, division management, or location of facilities.

Pyramid Pump plants are situated in Monroe, N.C., and Columbia, Ky.

Pyramid Pump Division will continue to offer the same lines of positive displacement pumps that have made Transamerica Delaval an industry leader during the past 51 years. These include: (1) Three-screw pumps used worldwide in industrial and naval applications—known for simple design, smooth flow, high shaft speed capability, and very low noise level.

(2) Geared twin-screw (GTS*) pumps used in petroleum and process installations afloat and ashore—providing very high capacities, great resistance to dirt, and, when used for stripping, has the ability to run dry without damage.

(3) Crescent internal gear (CIG®) pumps that find wide application in fluid power systems; these have high pressure capabilities and the ability to handle high water base fluids.

Mr. Lippencott emphasized the fact that Pyramid Pump Division will offer the same quality product lines, repair parts, and service support that it has offered since 1933 under the IMO name. Pyramid Pump will continue to build on its 51-year record of engineering and design expertise, operating efficiency, and proven reliability, he said.

The company makes a line of industrial products including compressors, connectors, controls, diesel engines, electric motors, fasteners, filters, forgings, gearing, pumps, sensors, steam condensers, turbines, valves, and waste treatment systems.
