Ah-Ha! Borger’s Pumps to the fore near Norwich

Posted: Wednesday 22nd January 2014

Four Borger Pumps have helped Anglian Water make a big reduction in maintenance/servicing downtime at its Whitlingham Water Recycling Centre near Norwich.

Pumping warm sludge (40 0C) 24/7, the MIP (Maintenance-In-Place)

feature of Borger’s pumps has greatly improved servicing, as Anglian Water’s Andy Pope explains:

“Before this installation, removal of a pump for repair or service would mean at least a day off-line”, he said.

“Rebuilding the old pumps or just servicing them was always a difficult task because they are awkward, heavy and located in very tricky place. However, the Borger pumps have made maintenance far more efficient. And in what is a harsh environment, they are also proving extremely reliable in pumping the sludge”.

The specially designed Borger PL 200 pumps for Whitlingham are also very compact, with reduced foot-print helical drive upright 5.5Kw drives and special Motor Mounted Inverters, helping resolve a restricted space issue.
