All You Need to Know About Kirloskar’s AT Pumps

Kirloskar’s revolutionary Air-cooled Thermic (AT) fluid pump series is a must-have for many industrial processes that involve handling hot fluids. This pump delivers safety with efficiency and is ideal for handling and transferring liquids that are too hot for ordinary pumps.

Vijay Engineering and Machinery Company has been one of the leading Kirloskar pump dealers in Mumbai for decades. We believe that our work shouldn’t be limited to the mere supply of pumps. We also work on increasing awareness about the same among our customers so that they can make an informed decision when it comes to buying the perfect pump for their requirements.

So where does an AT pump work best?

  • Thermic fluid handling
  • Hot water supply systems
  • Hot oil/synthetic oil transfer
  • District heating systems
