Grundfos help provide the solution.

“There are some occasions when it is necessary to pump hazardous materials and when this happens you need a pump that meets the highest standards”, explained Frazer Savage of Pump Supply & Repair Group who are based in Manchester.

Such a scenario came about when PSRG were asked to look into replacing some old horizontal multistage pumps within a methanol application. An important part of the decision making process was the capital outlay and ongoing life cycle costs. Various options were considered, including looking at a like for like solution or whether to choose to replace the existing pump models with newer alternative options - which was the preferred option - following initial investigations.

Working closely with the customer's production and the technical teams meant the project planning took four months from receipt of the initial technical specification to order placement. The final solution designed in collaboration with Grundfos Pumps saw the supply of 3 x Grundfos ATEX rated CRN 1-11 MAGdrive units that offer a wide range of motor types, materials, couplings, surface treatments and much more.- in fact there are one million possible configurations to choose from.

Since they have been installed the CRN MAGdrive pumps are more than meeting client expectations by delivering energy efficiencies against the previous incumbents, which has meant a significant saving in running costs. Furthermore due to the advantages that a hermetically sealed magnetic drive offer, service, maintenance and spare parts costs have also been reduced.

This is a very specialist market, and Pump Supply and Repair Group have taken the knowledge gained on this application and successful applied it to secure similar projects at other sites across the UK.
