Do You Have A Project We Can Help With?

Sherbrooke, Québec

Established in 1947, Brecks International, Inc. manufactures and distributes a wide range of fishing lures from its plant in Sherbrooke, Quebec. Their products consist of high-quality fishing lures plated in 24k gold and genuine silver. A special protective coating is incorporated in the plating process of all silver-plated lures adding extended life to the precious metal reflecting qualities.

MDM Pumps was recently contacted by Brecks Chemical Plating Department General Manager looking for help sourcing a pump to have on hand as a replacement for a 20-year-old MDM pump still in operation. The pump needed to be compatible with both acids and cyanides, as both are used in the plating process. After a few quick emails, MDM staff were able to perform a system audit to size and spec a modern pump solution that fit Brecks needs. An Advance Non-Metallic Thermoplastic (Noryl®) 1000 Series pump coupled with a 1/3 HP motor was then selected as the optimum backup replacement for the 20-year-old pump still in operation.

“We have been very pleased with our [MDM] pump. It is certainly withstanding the test of time and continues to work very well despite being used 40 hours a week for the past 15-20 years. We have not had any issues with it since the installation and it has even been strong enough to withstand a few incidents without burning out the motor or damaging the pump… Since the pump is over 15 years old I decided it’s time to order a new one to have as a replacement. MDM was able to guide me in finding the right pump to meet my needs. I have since exchanged multiple emails and phone calls with MDM and everyone has been very helpful.”
