Blower performance tests at sewage works

Using our testing system to examine blowers at a sewage treatment works, and identify energy and efficiency savings.

Annual £30,500 savings

If £88,00 invested in replacement of 2 blowers (payback 2.9 years)

Extra £4,500 savings

By immediately replacing pressure relief valves, filters and belts would make further annual savings

Identified blower performance

Highlighting that relative to other, blower 1 achieved 9% less flow and consumed 13% more power

More about these performance tests

Due to the high energy consumption of the blowers at this sewage treatment works, and the substantial maintenance costs, we were asked to complete performance tests to identify remedial works and find potential savings.

We utilised our FREEFLOW portable pump testing system to test three 75kW twin-lobe positive displacement rotary lobe blowers that provide aeration to two separate lanes.
