Pump House Solution
The water pump industry demands for higher energy efficiency, less equipment wear and tear due to across-the-line starting, and increased throughput for seven existing 800HP medium voltage vertical motors used in pump houses. The outage to convert from fixed to variable speed needs to be minimized due to the criticality of the pumps.
The motors are field retrofitted, causing a minimal amount of disruption. They incorporate our patented MAX GUARD® insulation system and Smart Rings that are easily changed out to our Bearing Circuit Protectors for Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) operation. Operation cost savings were twofold: quick payback due to energy savings and less unscheduled downtime due to soft starting the motors. Throughput was optimized by matching the load to the pump more efficiently.
