26 Sydex Positive displacement pumps fitted with tropic proof motors, Bonfiglioli mechanical speed variators mounted onto 316 stainless steel baseplates.
Doyle Pump & Engineering were commissioned to attend a remote site for an onsite consultation for the essential water supply of 22 water gallery pumps. The client’s brief included a requirement for regular and consistent clean potable water supply, improved efficiencies and savings in water consumption whilst protecting the scarcity of the water resource, and reduced maintenance requirements.
As part of the consultation, Doyle Pump & Engineering provided a detailed report & assessment that included pump and system diagnostics and efficiencies, with a proposal to provide engineering design, supply new equipment, and training & on-site commissioning.
Before: Poor Pipe Work & Pump Gallery Design
The Recommendations & Solutions
- Redesign of gallery pumps & recommended all equipment to be supplied for the intended application, suitable for the harsh tropical environment.
- Replace all internal pipe work in accordance with good engineering practice, replace controls and include improved pump and motor protection.
- Pump sets to be supplied mounted on 316 S/S base plates, which ensured long life thus simplifying maintenance.
- We recommended the pumps be installed as duty/standby system due to the critical nature of the application, i.e. water supply.
