Employing the right product saved utility customer Anglian Water thousands in labor and downtime costs

Blocked pumps are a huge problem at utility provider Anglian Water, they spend £15 million per year resolving these blockages which can cause customer and environmental impacts as well as commercial costs. Anglian Water's "Keep it Clear" campaign educates the public how to clean out pumps, helping to clean the water for the community.

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.
