A world-renowned flooring manufacturer approached us with an urgent need. Its insurance company had condemned its old fill and spill system, and a replacement was critically important to its operations.
When it came to the replacement, the biggest issue was that it must allow for hot water pressurisation up to 195 deg C at 20 bar, as well as enabling the pressurisation of all the cold water in the factory.
We designed, built and supplied an automated system on a single steel frame skid unit that controls the pressure in both the chilled and high-temperature hot water systems.
It incorporates a cold water header tank, a cold water system tank, four inverter-driven multistage pumps, a pressure control valve and three pressure valves.
Its sophisticated control panel has a colour touch-screen display, heat exchanger and pressure relief valves. To enable the control of the high pressure and the hot water, it has air-activated v-groove ball valves, inverter drives, pressure relief valves, temperature probes, pressure sensors and PLC.
