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):

OUTCOME:

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.
