Materials

SAM Engineering specialises in corrosion and wear resistant pump materials for the manufacture of high quality centrifugal process pumps to meet the demands of a wide variety of industries and applications. As many of our pumps are custom-made for operation-critical applications, we utilise cutting-edge material grades in order to guarantee a wide range of reliable pump solutions.

Pump materials include:  Stainless Steel and Low Alloy Steels, Iron Base Alloys, Chromium, Nickel, and Alloys of Niobium, Titanium, Zirconium, Molybdenum, Silicon Tungsten, etc.

Alloys to Suit All Applications

SAM Engineering builds robust bearing frames in exotic materials to suit the requirements of the individual application while the top ends of the pumps are constructed from stainless steel, providing superior corrosion resistance to better handle acids, alkalines, high temperatures and high pressure pumping.

Pump Applications & Specifications

Typical materials requirements for the manufacture of centrifugal process pumps:

  • Corrosion and abrasion resistance
  • High working temperatures
  • Hardness and wear resistance
  • Thermal conductivity


As different materials exhibit different physical and chemical properties, SAM Engineering carefully selects materials based on the demands and requirements of the specific application.

SAM Engineering has always considered quality a high priority and as such, we have implemented the SABS ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System. Furthermore, all our pump units undergo rigorous testing at our on-site testing facilities to certify the accurate performance of products prior to installation. 

NOTE: The pump make-up largely depends on the application. Other materials are available on request.
