PROJECT NAME: Parliament House Irrigation and Flusherette Pumpsets
PROJECT MANAGER: Gavin Pridham
TIME TAKEN: 2.5 months from order to completion.
SYSTEM REQUIRED: 1 x 3 pump pressure system & 1 x 5 pump pressure system.
UNIQUE CHALLENGES: Determining existing pump performance and matching this to a new multi pump system. We needed spare capacity for possible increased future demand, however we needed to also optimise energy usage.
EXISTING PUMPS WERE:
Flusherette pumps 2 x 22kW pumps
Irrigation 2 x 15kW pumps
New pumps were;
QMax demolished existing pumps and installed new systems.
PROBLEMS SOLVED (HOW Q-MAX OVERCAME THOSE CHALLENGES):
Replaced 2 inefficient pump systems with 2 new high efficiency systems to reduce energy consumption.
Installed mains water bypass so that during periods of low demand, no energy is required to supply the building.
