Steve & Jill with PVL's new Australian rep!
| || || || |
Steve denies being a bird brain!
Steve Moorey, PVL’s intrepid managing director, has just embarked on a gruelling two month working trip to Australia, during which he will spend a day meeting Kelco, one of PVL’s key manufacturing partners. The rest of the two months is going to be an arduous mix of restaurants, culture and beaches...
But arranging the trip wasn’t an entirely smooth process. Steve was initially booked to fly with Quantas, before the Australian airline attempted to resolve its industrial dispute by grounding all of its planes. Steve’s wife, Jill, immediately booked an alternative ticket with Singapore Airlines, only to be told that their Quantas flight was going to be winging its way down under after all! Let’s just hope the airline meal was worth all the frustration.
Steve deserves a rest; after all, he founded PVL over 25 years ago and has been hard at work ever since. And he’ll be used to the heat in Oz, having spent much of his early career in Africa, maintaining hydraulic applications and vehicle systems.
| |In all seriousness Kelco, our Australian partner, manufactures a range of innovative products that solve a host of problems. From flow switches for pool and pump applications to visual flow indicators for monitoring pipe systems and liquid level in tanks and vessels, there is something in the Kelco catalogue for almost any flow or level application.
One range that really stands out is the Australian manufacturer’s series of corrosion resistant flow, float and level switches. Made of thermoplastic, brass or stainless steel, the switches find a home in all sorts of process applications.

| One range that really stands out is the Australian manufacturer’s series of corrosion resistant flow, float and level switches. Made of thermoplastic, brass or stainless steel, the switches find a home in all sorts of process applications. Thanks to intelligent design, none of the switches’ metallic parts come into contact with the process liquid and the electronics are completely isolated. This means they are ideal for use with corrosive liquids or in environments where the fluid itself needs to be protected. |
Steve and Jill will also be visiting Kelco Products Ltd in New Zealand where the MD supplies many Kelco products into the pumping and fish farming industries. It’s a tough job but somebody’s got to do it!
In Steve’s absence, the rest of the PVL team will be delighted to help you find the right switch for your application and provide whatever background information you need on everything from ATEX compliant pressure and vacuum switches to ZE plastic filters.
