The water utility Anglian Water tests SIMOCODE pro
After a test run with SIMOCODE pro, Anglian Water, a leading British water utility, has shown that pump blockages are a thing of the past: Straight after using it, the operator noticed a considerably higher operational current. When the direction of rotation was reversed, this decreased significantly. The blockage was cleared! Looking back after six months, Anglian Water has had less blockages and lower operating costs and is convinced that blockages no longer need to occur.
"The true benefit is being able to use a standard product that can be adapted precisely to our requirements."Lorenzo Pompa, engineer at Anglian Water
How can the availability of a pump be increased with SIMOCODE pro?
The intelligent SIMOCODE pro motor management system monitors current values and the power factor in order to be able to derive the pump status. Once a defined threshold is reached, SIMOCODE pro autonomously reverses the direction of rotation of the pump using a configurable internal logic to remove the deposits from the impeller blades.
