TURNKEY, EFFICIENT PUMPING SOLUTION FACILITATES PLANT’S GREATER WATER NEEDS
One of the largest U.S. producers of construction aggregates decided to relocate their processing plant to facilitate increased production capacity. However, the new location was further away from the plant’s water supply. As the new plant would house all of the site’s crushing, washing and sorting applications, the customer needed a single-source provider who could design and install a comprehensive and integrated water management system to meet all the necessary applications, including wash down, dust control, truck wash, pugmill and slurry.
“After an extensive site audit, our engineers worked closely with this customer to develop a comprehensive plan to improve operational efficiency and increase the required water supply...”
Having been a trusted partner for years, we were very familiar with this aggregate producer’s operations, confident in the reliability of our products and the depth of our hydraulic engineering experience. After an extensive site audit, our engineers worked closely with the customer to develop a comprehensive plan to improve operational efficiency and increase the required water supply. This included evaluating the existing pumps and recommending modifications and replacement of some equipment. To support the demands of the new processing plant and to ensure future capacity, we engineered and installed an integrated system of new pumps, piping and fittings.
Our broad portfolio and extensive experience meant that we could design and install an efficient and reliable turnkey water management system that enables the plant to process 15 percent more aggregate than it could previously. Also, as the entire solution can be connected to the plant-wide SCADA system for remote, proactive monitoring and control, minimal downtime and maximum efficiency is ensured. Just one person can monitor and control the entire system which provides operational savings.
Customer benefits of our solution include:
- 15 percent increase in production
- A turnkey water management system that supports the plant’s unique needs
- Solution installed on time as scheduled
- Enhanced operational efficiency
