Grundfos can the can

Grundfos Pumps, pipes, pipework

When a leading UK manufacturer of beverage cans wanted to investigate the potential for saving energy on its installed pumps systems, it approached Grundfos to undertake an energy check. It focused on the washing lines, and a comprehensive report was produced, as a result of which a number of pumps were replaced.

The order included 14 MTR vertical multi-stage centrifugal pumps designed for pumping cooling lubricants for machine tools, condensate transfer and similar applications.

Energy savings of £53 000 a year will be achieved, with a return on investment of just 18 months. Annual energy savings of 590 MWh a year were predicted, so the company also installed new pumps on its second wash line.
