DELTA was established in 1966. Our first activity was the design and erection of electrical, industrial refrigeration, and air conditioning systems. Today we are still very active in the industrial refrigeration field were we have increased our coverage with local manufacturing of various components. DELTA has installed over 40,000 tons of refrigeration or horse power for various applications.
Since 1978, after 3 years of design, research and testing, we begun the manufacture of large vertical seawater pumps. The initial driver for the development of our pumps was the rapid expansion of shrimp farms in Ecuador. Over the years, our pumps applications extended to industrial, municipal, and agriculture. Today, DELTA has over 1,200 pumps operating in 17 countries around the world. Our pumps include axial flow, mixed flow, and francis type pumps. In March 2004, DELTA was awarded with the ISO 9001:2000 quality standards certificate for the design and manufacture of water pumps for aquaculture, agriculture, municipal, and industrial applications.

Due to the continuous commitment to quality and performance, DELTA pumps have achieved the highest efficiency and product functionality you can buy. Our research and development team is constantly optimizing the hydraulic and mechanical design of our pumps with the latest tools for computer simulated flows and stress analysis. The design process is complemented with state of the art pump testing laboratories – a model testing facility for pumps up to 16 inches ( 400 mm ) in diameter and a full size prototype testing facility for pumps up to 50 inches ( 1250 mm ) in diameter. Our pump testing facilities fully comply with all the requirements of the Hydraulic Institute per ANSI / HI 2.6 - 2000.

Product innovation and improvement is part of DELTA's culture as well as flexibility to satisfy our customer's specific demands. This flexibility includes special designs to meet particular operating requirements and the ability to manufacture using special materials like stainless steels, aluminum, titanium, and others. The whole manufacturing facility has been erected with innovation in mind. The ability to adjust production to new designs in minimum time gives us an advantage over our competition.
A total of 60 highly qualified workers and 16 engineers and administrative staff work at our 6,800 m2 manufacturing facility and administrative office. Our manufacturing facility includes plasma and oxyfuel CNC cutting, CNC machining, and fully automatic welding processes. DELTA products combine years of experience in design and manufacture with the latest CAD/CAM systems.
