Efficient pump control

Efficient pump control

Issues:

A large sand & gravel plant in The Midlands was looking to improve the delivery, control and efficiency of its water pumping around the site.

The numerous pumps on site were pumping water from a lagoon to the tanks and then though the various processes. The plant employed the services of Drive Solutions Centre partner, Lawrence Electrical to provide a solution.

Solution Summary:

  • On-site survey and calculations to show energy savings and efficiencies
  • Installation of drive panels using Mitsubishi F800 series inverters
  • Full commissioning and optimisation using Mitsubishi Electric software package

Benefits Summary:

  • Energy savings on the pumps in excess of 40%
  • Reduction in mechanical wear and as a result, reduced maintenance costs
  • Higher overall efficiency
  • Improved process control
