If your current pump system is in any way poorly designed or inefficient then you could be pumping away thousands and thousands of pounds annually. That’s before you start draining away costly repairs that could have been quickly resolved with a professional solution.

Replacing or updating your pump system can seem overwhelming and with downtime and overheads to consider, you need to be confident that you are getting the most reliable system and service. Find out how Dura Pump provided an engineering specialist with exactly that as well as £50,000 in savings.

Minimum Downtime, Maximum Results and £50,000 Savings

A large, global Engineering Consultancy that specialises in all aspects of advanced internal combustion engines and electrified powertrain systems were using an old inefficient pump system to keep their test facility up and running…or more like up and slow walking with such an outdated pump system!

With basic controls and column pumps installed 30 years ago struggling to meet the demands of their business, the company’s productivity and profitability were being restricted by poor, unreliable and inconsistent pressure. The Consultancy was tired of not being able to advance and achieve better results. Understandably, they were also reluctant to update due to concerns about detrimental downtime setting their profits back while a new pump system was installed.

Dura Pump’s engineers took a look at the replacement pump system the Consultancy had been initially specified but we knew, based on their needs, we had a better way to meet their requirements and keep their process functioning.

From our on-site workshop, we designed a bespoke skid frame that was pre-assembled with a full pump system, including five KSB Etaline 18.5kW centrifugal pumps, pipework, sensors, pressure vessels and a control panel with integrated inverter controls. Every single part of that pump system was ready to go and when it arrived at the site, it was completely ready for install.

Dura Pump engineers used the most up to date pipe crimping systems and their years of experience to switch the large system over pump by pump to keep the process going. The downtime was reduced to 2 hours but most of the system remained operational throughout meaning no losses to the Consultancy’s profits but big results.

The whole system is effectively optimised with actuated valves controlling the flows and the triple pressure vessel ensuring there’s a constant pressure. The Consultancy now has reliable pumps, is achieving processing results more than ever and is making huge energy savings to save them money. Almost £50,000 worth!
