Pump tests at food production plant

Working with a global food brand to find robust savings across its factory pumps. Another example of us leading the field and working with global brands

Using our FREEFLOW portable system, we tested the manufacturer’s cooling system, which is split into two pumping sub-systems. These are: factory pumps for sending chilled water from heat-exchangers to the factory; and evaporator pumps sending chilled water from the factory to refrigeration heat exchangers. This case study, a first for us working outside of the water industry, focuses on testing the company’s factory pumps.

FREEFLOW in-situ when testing chocolate factory pumps

Our results in brief:

  • Savings of £19,200 per year would be achieved through pump refurbishment

  • Estimated saving of £10,600 per year would be delivered by prioritising pumps, with no CAPEX required to realise savings

  • Significant wear on all pumps identified (worst for pumps 4 & 5)

  • BEP of 81% not realised and maximum pump efficiency at 75% (for pumps 1 & 2)
