Strengths of Torishima

Advanced technical capabilities cultivated over more than a century of history

Point 1.

Advanced technical capabilities cultivated over more than a century of history

Despite the number of pump manufacturers worldwide, only a few can manufacture these extraordinary pumps.
Torishima's strength is in large, high-pressure pumps used in water and wastewater facilities, power plants, and other facilities.
For example, our pumps that can transfer tremendous amounts of water are so powerful that they can empty a 25-meter pool in five seconds.
Our pumps with high pressure can pump water as high as 4,200 meters, and pumps that can operate in extremely harsh environments can operate at supercritical pressures at 350 degrees Celsius or higher.
As one of this select few, Torishima has delivered numerous pumps to more than 100 countries around the world.

5 seconds!

Can pump water higher than Mount Fuji!

Can operate under supercritical pressure at temperatures of 350 and higher!

Point 2.

Pursuit of higher pump efficiency and reduced power consumption and CO2 emissions

The electricity consumed by pumps used in industrial plants can be very significant.
While energy-efficient models are now preferred in both cars and home appliances, for many years, the pump industry has seen vigorous pursuit of technological advancements to make pumps more energy efficient.
Improving pump efficiency by even 0.1% can lead to running cost savings of millions or tens of millions of yen in electricity expenses.
Leveraging the latest in CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) analysis, Torishima sought to improve pump efficiency through design that allow water to flow through pumps without energy loss.
This can help reduce power consumption and CO2 emissions for entire plants.
Pumps are machines with high power consumption. In other words, there is significant room for energy savings.

Point 3.

Pumps acting as climate change countermeasures also contribute to disaster prevention and mitigation

There is increasing demand to expand drainage capacity at drainage pumping stations to cope with the torrential rains that have been occurring more frequently in recent years.
However, if the dimensions of existing water tanks remain the same, the flow velocity in the water tank will increase and lead to increased vortices that adversely affects pump performance.
Traditionally, preventing vortices meant installing anti-vortex baffles, a type of civil engineering structure, but installing them is costly and time-consuming.
By suppressing vortices in the pump itself, Torishima eliminated the need for anti-vortex baffles, which lowers construction costs, ensures construction safety, and reduces construction time and pump downtime.

We also contribute to disaster prevention and mitigation with our water-resistant motor-integrated pumps, which integrate the pump and motor into a single unit to ensure operation even if the unit becomes submerged in water.

Point 4.

Became a Global Niche Top (GNT) company with pumps for seawater desalination plants

While Japan is fortunate to be blessed with an abundant supply of fresh water, many countries suffer from severe water shortages. In those places, seawater desalination plants, which convert ocean water to fresh water, are an important part of the infrastructure.
Since the 1970s, Torishima has supplied pumps to seawater desalination plants in countries in the Middle East and around the world.
The Company has a high global market share and has been recognized as a Global Niche Top (GNT) company by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry 2020.
Considering the reality that approximately two billion people still do not have access to safe and reliable drinking water, the demand for seawater desalination plants is expected to increase.

Point 5.

Promoting smart maintenance service with unique rotating machinery monitoring system.

In response to labor shortage and technology succession issues caused by the low birthrates and aging societies, the manufacturing industry is promoting on-site use of smart maintenance services that utilize IoT and AI.
Leveraging its technology and experience as a pump manufacturer, Torishima has developed its own unique Rotating Equipment Monitoring System, TR-COM.
Through the ability to capture high-frequency waves of up to 10,000 Hz, it can perform failure prediction, which was difficult in the past. This makes it possible to offer solutions that only a pump professional can provide, such as analysis of failure causes, maintenance advice, and pump repair.
In 2022, it was also certified as a Smart Security Technology by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI)and in 2023.Additionally, the explosion-proof model was launched in 2023 and received a special award from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries at the 7th Infrastructure Maintenance Awards.
