We were asked to identify existing pumps and offer like-for-like, or better, for replacement after a house fire. We were required to install and commission the new pump sets. We were asked to assist the principle contractor with siting the controls and running new cable ducts and cable extensions.
• A site survey was carried out and findings were reported to the project architect.
• Worked directly with the building contractor to install the replacement pumps to streamline the process.
• Three twin pump sets were supplied, one foul for the front of the property, one foul for the rear of the property and one for groundwater, located internally.
• These were installed into the existing pump chambers and utilised existing rising mains.
• Identifying the existing pumps and offering identical duty or higher ensures the replacement pumps will offer the duty of the previously installed pumps.
• The existing chambers were completely refurbished; new pumps, galvanized steel pipework and controls were installed.
• All of the control panels have the necessary connections to connect to either our own telemetric diallers (optional) or the owners BMS system.
WHEN EXPERIENCE COUNTS
Identifying pumps can be difficult. After years of submersion data plates can become unreadable. Occasionally you find a duplicate sticker in the control panel but in this instance, due to a fire, the control panels were destroyed. Often it’s the experience of our engineers and office staff who we rely on for identification.
