About us

The Story So Far

S&P Industrial was founded in 2014 to pursue the answer to one question: Can S&P Industrial develop a flexible front-line defence for pumps operating globally? From its humble beginnings in a shed hand‑pouring polymers into rudimental moulds, S&P Industrial now manufactures the patented Reflex Suction Strainers utilising the latest injection moulding techniques combined with cutting edge polymers.

While there are many varieties of suction strainers on the market today, including steel, poly and plastic, none have the ability to withstand the harsh and varying environments with one solution. Today, S&P Industrial are proud to say, “we do!”

The Reflex Suction Strainers are made from advanced chemically engineered elastomeric polymers allowing the products to operate in extremely harsh environments, including petrochemical, mining, agriculture, emergency services, military, marine and disaster zones. The Reflex Suction Strainers are recyclable and offer additional benefits such as increased safety and pump life and reduced strainer consumption, maintenance interventions and installation costs. In short, the product offers a simple, cost-effective, safe and reliable solution.

The Reflex Suction Strainer is the only solution to managing the first line of defence for pumps, both safely and cost effectively, in harsh environments around the world.

Product Applications

The S&P Reflex Suction Strainer is made from advanced, chemically engineered elastomeric polymers, allowing the design to operate in extremely harsh commercial environments or in domestic environments that require efficient water movement. These include:

  • Domestic – Septic tanks, grease traps, polluted water, blocked drains, swimming pools and tanks.
  • Mining/Quarrying – Excess water, underground sump management, exploration drill mud, sediment tanks, wash bays and sumps.
  • Tunnelling and Construction – Removal of water from high traffic dangerous locations.
  • General Agriculture – Cleaning tanks, motor oil, contaminated fuel/oils and chemicals.
  • Irrigation – Farmland water movement from dams, rivers and channels.
  • Drilling/Bore holes – Easy to use inside bore holes with no impact from hard or saline water.
  • General Industrial – Sumps and separators, wash bays, pits, fuel tanks, paints, solvent and ink, contaminated water/effluent and flooding.
  • Commercial – Grease traps, septic tanks, portable toilets, toilet blocks and green waste.
  • Local Government – Sewage treatment plant maintenance, sewer wells, bulk sewage and water treatment plants.
  • Federal Government – Defence (military field engineers, naval general operations).
  • Food Processing Facilities – Food grade and drinking water quality compound (EPDM) for use in the food processing industry for non-contamination (no rust or paint required).
  • Petrochemical Industries – Resistant to fuels and oils allowing easy use and clean.
  • Emergency Services – Rural and city fire services, disaster response (flooding, storms)
  • General Marine – Bilge pumps (no rust and no scratching surfaces).

reflex suction strainer benefits

Cost Savings – Spend more time pumping

  • Reduce strainer replacement
  • Reduced man hours cleaning strainers
  • Reduced man hours fixing broken strainers
  • Reduced man hours installing  strainers
  • Reduced pump downtime
  • Reduced injuries
  • Reduced equipment damage
  • Reduced equipment maintenance
  • Provide better protection for your assets
  • Confidence in the product surviving transit to during and from site
  • Reduced Inventory i.e. broader product application of the Reflex Suction Strainer over the typical plastic and/or stainless steel range

Increased Safety – People and Equipment

  • No sharp edges reducing hand injuries
  • No submersed steel reducing underwater cut hazard
  • Lightweight reducing lift and impact injuries

Time Saving – Quick and Easy Install

  • No additional tools required to install
  • Single part for installation and removal
  • Easy to clean
  • Push on, pop off design

Corrosion Resistant – Polymers don’t rust

  • No need for refurbishment paint or sand blasting
  • Longer lasting in high and low pH conditions
  • Recyclable material

Benefit statement: The Reflex strainer reduces operating costs by reducing usage and ongoing strainer and pump maintenance, being simple, safe, reliable, flexible and recyclable.

2" Reflex suction strainer

Advanced Flexible De-watering and Filtration Devices for Harsh Environments

Patent Pending no. 2015902356 - Australian Design Registration Number 362894 - United States of America Design Application Number 29/549,353 - International (PCT) Patent Application Number PCT/AU2016/050160

Born out of the high demands of the Australian underground mining environment, the Reflex Suction Strainer is designed to survive in hostile and high traffic environments. Moulded from an advanced blend of polymer rubbers, the Reflex Suction Strainer can handle extreme conditions including being run over by vehicles and machinery. The Reflex Suction Strainer costs less than conventional strainers, saving time in cleaning and replacements. Reflex Suction Strainers are safe to use and manufactured in accordance to ISO:9001 .

Applications

  • Underground and open cut development areas affected by excess water
  • Roadways subject to constant inundation with water  
  • Any mining areas with high levels of water affecting production
  • The mining hose with flexible strainer is simply laid on the ground in the water affected zone and pumping may commence
  • No steel parts, bore holes or infrastructure needed from suction area to pump 

Safety

  •  The product uses vulcanised polymers eliminating sharp edges and reducing hand injuries (no metal) inherent in normal metal strainers
  • Removal of submersible steel objects and sharp objects, reducing trip and cut hazards
  • Lightweight and flexible design, meaning less impact on personnel and machinery when in contact 
  • Quick and easy to clean, so personnel will spend less time in heavy traffic areas repairing or replacing equipment

Cost Savings

  • Does not corrode, therefore reduced replacement required
  • Sustains many heavy contacts without breaking allowing the part to last longer
  • Longer-lasting parts protect the pumps for longer periods, leading to less downtime, personnel intervention and repair and maintenance 
  • No need to drill costly bore holes and associated equipment in development roadways as the product can be used directly on roads and in direct contact with machinery
  • More cost-effective pumps can be used keeping operating and capital costs down (diaphragm v submersible)
