Anglian Water has revolutionised its Brockley pump station operations by integrating SEEPEX pump monitoring and connected services. This cutting-edge technology enables remote monitoring, providing Anglian Water with numerous benefits. It helps with compliance and consent flows, avoids pipework rupture caused by excessive pressure, and will support Anglian Water to efficiently implement planned maintenance work.
Simplified pump maintenance
The Brockley sewage pump station was using SEEPEX macerators alongside obsolete pumps from a different supplier resulting in frequent engineer attendance to address performance, which placed a significant burden on resources.
The need to spend a considerable amount of maintenance time on the older pumps prompted Anglian Water to explore the latest maintain-in-place technologies. As they sought a solution to replace both the macerators and pumps, Anglian Water turned to SEEPEX, its trusted framework partner.
SEEPEX provided Anglian Water with new replacement macerators and progressive cavity (PC) pumps fitted with Smart Conveying Technology (SCT) and pump monitoring with advanced analytics.
SCT enables the adjustment of the pumping elements, restoring pump efficiency and extending the life of wearing parts. Additionally, it allows for easy dismantling, changing of parts, and reassembly without the need to remove suction or discharge pipework, reducing on-site maintenance time.
Anglian Water can remotely monitor Brockley through SEEPEX pump monitoring, gaining insight into operating conditions and performance before visiting the station. By implementing planned maintenance and spare parts availability, Anglian Water achieves a ‘first-time’ fix approach, sending the right person with the right skills at the right time, resulting in improved efficiency and reduced downtime.
The newly optimised pump station now benefits from totally remote monitoring with advanced analytics of pump station assets, flow verification which ensures compliance and forward planned maintenance. First-time fixes are possible with issue detection before arrival for skill-based attendance, preventive maintenance avoids pump station outages and there are reduced maintenance costs thanks to the SCT pumps.
