It’s exciting times for the pump control team with the unveiling of a new controller featuring our award-winning technology. Pulsar’s Ultimate Pump Controller integrates Retroflo’s patented pre-blockage detection technology with a range of control features such as level and flow control, pump efficiency and telemetry.

Retroflo are delighted to announce that the company has been named an approved electrical contractor for Northumbrian Water. The approval marks a major landmark in Retroflo’s progression and follows 18 months of preparation and planning to meet NWL’s strict approval criteria.

Following the successful commissioning of the pumps by Retroflo at Pinkston Watersport Centre in Glasgow, the new artificial whitewater courses (AWWC) were tested for the first time last week by local boaters Thom Brown and Mark Mulrain. Both courses run at 7c at maximum flow (3 pumps) with a 1.5m head. The long course is 100m x 10m wide and the short course is 30m x 10m wide. Both courses were tested with two pumps and the results were very positive.

In 2013 registration of pure electric and hybrid vehicles far outstripped previous years, with an estimated 70% increase in sales on the previous year. Potential buyers are being attracted to electric vehicles because of tax breaks, lower running costs and environmental credentials, and government funded grant incentives such as the supply and installation of free car chargers and plug-in car grants. If you have considered buying an Electric Vehicle it’s worth first finding out whether your EV of choice qualifies for a Plug-In Car Grant.
