Grundfos Help to Rebuild Mosul
aving rarely been out of the
news, Mosul is now attempting
to re-build itself after suffering
bombardment and shelling. This, the
second largest city in Iraq, saw some
of the most violent clashes during the
recent conflict that left this area
virtually without any infrastructure or
access to basic resources.
To support the demands for water,
Grundfos Pumps have been working
with the United Nations Development
Program – UNDP - to provide the pump
solutions for half of the 3 million citizens
of this city, to regain a stable and
uninterrupted water supply.
Working to a very tight deadline,
Grundfos provided a total of 50 pumps
that included 12 submersible 400kW
pumps that are being used to support a
river intake pumping station as well as
12 equally large split-case pumps that
are part of a high lift pumping station.
Water is one commodity that is
frequently taken for granted until the
supply is interrupted. Being able to
re-establish a reliable water supply to
Mosul is going a long way to giving this
city back a sense of normality. For more
information on the wide range of
applications that Grundfos can support

When the Going Gets Tough, Release the Raptor
he wait is over! Wolseley, the
UK’s leading plumbing, heating
and cooling specialist, has announced the launch of hand tools
from its exclusive Raptor range. The
tools are available in over 400 of
Wolseley’s branches nationwide.
The Raptor hand tools range has been
manufactured with the customer in
mind. Take for instance the Raptor
screwdrivers that feature a Tri-lobular
grip, which helps improve grip and
torque transfer while remaining comfortable in a wide range of sizes. They also
feature the highest spec S2 blades;
making them safer, stronger and more
hard wearing than the more common
CR-V screwdrivers.
The innovation and attention to detail
doesn’t stop there, All Raptors knives
and pipe cutters utilise Titanium coated
blades; offering superior cutting performance and improved lifespan. The
Raptor Quick Clamps incorporate Pipe
Grooves to improve clamping security;
reducing the chance of a pipe slipping
out of the clamp when under pressure.
The Torpedo and Box Levels feature
Verti-Site® vials, this extremely useful
technology allows the user to check if
an object is plumb from the front of the
level, making it much easier to use in
those hard to access areas. Even the
inspection mirror has been engineered
with the customer in mind; featuring a
larger surface with an incorporated light
making it much easier to view inaccessible areas.
Richard Redfern Category Director at
Wolseley said: “Raptor tools are one of
the highest standards of tool available
within the market. All of the tool ranges
have been produced with specific jobs
in mind and can be collected the same
day from most Wolseley branches and
in less than 48 hours in all. We are
thrilled to stock Raptor and know our
customers will be excited by the performance and durability of the tools.”
Earlier this year, Raptor launched its
range of power tool accessories– which
also proved to be a huge success with
trades who were impressed with the
quality of the products on offer.
