Slack and Parr

Slack and Parr Limited is a privately owned UK based company and a world leader in the manufacture of ultra-high precision gear metering flow dividers

The company was founded in 1917 in Kegworth, near Derby and in 1978 established a hydraulic division – initially manufacturing hydraulic power packs, fuel pumps, flow meters and flow dividers. In recent years, Slack and Parr took the strategic decision to specialise solely in the design and manufacture of high precision geared flow dividers, in rotation speeds ranging from 750 rpm to 3000 rpm.

Slack and Parr’s expertise in high precision gear design technology now delivers world class performance for their customers: precision ground surface finishes on gear teeth and plate faces produce tight clearances and deliver a much higher accuracy and efficiency than any other comparable flow dividing technology available.

Suitable for a broad range of applications, Slack and Parr flow dividers are often deployed in lifting arms, pipe and drill clamping systems in the Oil and Gas industry, hydraulic presses, agricultural machinery, railroad track laying, waste compactors, lubrication systems, marine and sub-sea machinery, steel mills, specialist vehicles and transportation.
