Dura Pump Helps Major Food Company Save £50,000 Supporting ESOS Legislation

We have recently helped a major food company to save £50,000 in line with the new ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme) legislation.

The ESOS legislation outlined by the government requires large companies to carry out energy audits and review the total energy use from their business operations, ensuring compliance by 29th January 2016. We have already started to help companies become compliant, more efficient and save money.

We helped create the savings by specifying, supplying and installing a Danfoss Aquadrive. The team’s engineering expertise ensured that the amount of time pumps were operating was reduced by 50%.

As companies need to prove that they are saving energy, we review the pumps that are in place, identify areas where energy is being wasted, and analyse where savings can be made. Payback times for our solutions are often as low as six months, with instant savings to be made.

The major food company had a twin wash-down pump system with 7.5kW vertical multistage pumps running consistently at 25bar. This meant that the pump system was often running for no reason, and therefore over pressurised the system.

Our team visited the site to analyse the system, and subsequently recommended the Danfoss Aquadrive inverter to control the pressure of the system and run both pumps only when necessary. We also installed a pressure vessel and other components to protect the pump and reduced the overall pressure from 25bar to 15bar. The new system gave the company a reliable, long-term solution for reducing maintenance and energy usage.

Our engineers conduct initial site surveys in order to pinpoint issues and work out how to help refine existing processes, thus making companies compliant with the ESOS legislation.

We are a pump system specialist company, committed to finding solutions that support its clients’ missions.
