Lowest Life-Cycle Cost Series

SPP Pumps recognition of the increasing emphasis on life cycle costing when evaluating pumping schemes for the twenty first century has lead to the development of our Lowest Life-Cycle Cost Series of pumps. The concept behind this series is to provide the end user with pumping solutions offering the lowest total cost of ownership.

Incorporating split case and vertical suspended bowl designs, this world class series of pumps has been developed from many of our existing well proven hydraulics. These have been finely tuned with the aid of computational fluid dynamics, with enhanced mechanical designs and innovative features. Standard materials of construction have been substantially upgraded to increase component life and reduce efficiency degradation.

Life Cycle Costs

In response to the ever increasing cost of energy, life-cycle cost analysis (LCC) is fast becoming the accepted method of evaluation for both capital projects and replacement plant. Various LCC models are available to pump users where capital, energy, maintenance and efficiency degradation costs are assessed to determine the pumps life-cycle cost. These models enable the user to make an informed decision based on the true cost of ownership, not just capital cost.

Reducing energy consumption through the selection of the most efficient pump has the added benefit of reducing CO2 emissions. Not only does this have environmental benefits, but can assist in reducing emission levies imposed on some high energy users.

Initial capital cost is in most instances a fraction of the whole life cost of a typical pumping installation. Energy, unplanned downtime with resultant loss of productivity and replacement of lower life expectancy consumable parts such as seals and bearings equates to as much as 80-90% of total life-cycle cost.


Pumps as Turbines

Hydro-electric power production

Small hydro-electric power production provides a convenient, cost-effective source of renewable energy. SPP Pumps has extensive experience of designing and delivering highly efficient Pump as Turbine (PaT) solutions capable of rapid return on investment. The pressure differential (head) of a water flow provides the opportunity to recover energy in the process. A Pump as Turbine can be used to generate electricity that is fed back into the national grid network, directed for local supply, or even used directly to drive additional rotating equipment. With many years of advanced turbine engineering experience, SPP Pumps offers field-proven, affordable, low maintenance products based on simple, readily-available components and spares.


 
Condition Monitoring

In order to minimise the ownership costs of capital equipment, it is critical for the user to monitor and maintain the equipment once installed. Failure to do so will impact both on the mechanical integrity and economic performance of the installed equipment.

Diagnosis of Potential Equipment Failure

Early diagnosis of potential equipment failure can result in considerable repair cost savings and crucially a reduction in unplanned downtime. Monitoring of pump energy consumption and system efficiency, will bring visibility to pump wear, operating efficiency and highlight any system irregularities, all of which will help the user minimise energy consumption and reduce operating costs.

The SPP condition monitoring systems can provide this level of security by detecting, analysing and evaluating key equipment performance:

 

Performance/Efficiency degradation Driver alignment condition
Bearing vibration levels Residual unbalance
Bearing operating temperatures Cavitation
