The introduction of PLUGA submersible pumps began as a dream of our late Chairman Shri M V Joshi in the 1960s, who introduced the concept of submersibles in India. Submersible pumps were a key driver in ground water irrigation, which enabled the agricultural revolution in India. In 1987, with new opportunity for the introduction of engineered plastic 100 mm (4") pumps to replace inefficient jet pumps and compressor pumps. Today the pioneering spirit of PLUGA endures with ongoing investment in new products, technologies and facilities.  The submersible pump range now covers 75 mm, 100 mm, 150 mm, and 200 mm diameters in a variety of constructions. A new modern integrated factory at GIDC Savli, near Vadodara, Gujarat, was opened in 2013 to increase the supply of PLUGA pumpsets to meet the growing global demand.

Their water systems are driven to fulfill this necessity of clean and readily available ground water for health and prosperity. The pioneering spirit of Pluga and Franklin Electric thrives with continual investments in the highest quality products and technologies in the pumping industry. Their expanded range of reliable and energy-efficient water pumps delivers world-class performance to support the growth and well-being, through serving diversified segments like Agriculture, Domestic, Building & Construction and Solar.

Pluga Franklin Electric is among the key players who have been encouraging advanced technology and energy efficient design for water pumping applications. Multistage Horizontal (MH series), Vertical Multistage (VR Series), Inline Sub-drive (SDIL & SDQP), EUROPA (oil filled motors), KAI and Water King Booster are among their core product range dedicated for serving the needs of residential, commercial buildings and the challenges of large-scale urban infrastructure.

Multistage Horizontal pump, is a self-priming pump with compact closed couple design completely made of SS, its superior build quality, higher efficiency and wide operational temperature range (-15 to 35 ᵒC) and threaded nozzle. Vertical Multistage pump comes with a specially designed interchangeable mechanical seal and a standard IEC motor, the compact and solid structure that comes fitted intermediate bearing that completely eliminates vibrations, easy to change flange and ability to rotate the terminal box by 90ᵒ makes it installation easy within minimum floor space. The Inline pump series is a single unit that generates pressure and transfers the water constantly irrespective of demand; the single module design facilitates noise free operation and installation in any position (Vertical, Horizontal and upside as well) .

KAI underground tank pump is a high energy efficient & power saver design comes with 6-meter length of built-in cable for avoiding electrical hazards due to joints outside tank. Noise free operation, dynamically balanced parts and rubber pads ensures operational stability. SS made strainer & fasteners prevents rusting, making it more robust and sturdy. KAI is supplied with digital pump controller to enhance protection and system reliability which overall makes it a right fit for urban infrastructure.

Their wide range of offerings include pressure boosting systems, submersibles and solar pumping system and allied offerings like cable and controller. In addition to their flagship products in 4” and 6” pumpset series, they also offer a wide range of fully S.S. construction pumpsets having capacity to work at depth of 1500 feet. Sand handling pumps suitable for flawless operation under sandy conditions, water filled, oil filled and special motors for low voltage and high voltage applications adding durability and improving reliability of the products. They are also channel partners of MNRE thus continuously promoting clean and green energy by manufacturing solar pump-sets having 21 % more discharge than regular pumps. They are manufacturing five star rated pumpsets ranging from 100 mm (4”) to 200 mm (8”). They have more than 123 models, which are BEE Star accredited and complying with BIS standards. With integrated system that enhances the protection and safety of the sproducts.

With recognition for high quality and premium performance, PLUGA FRANKLIN ELECTRIC’s dream has spread all over India & continues to be shared throughout the world.
