A manufacturing customer of ours had literally run out of production space and desperately needed a new continuous loop test bed for their world class products.
We had a specifically designed container made with personnel doors and other non-standard fittings to accommodate an automated dual pumping system in stainless steel, complete with inverter drives, controls and flow meters which were fully wired and tested, before delivery to site.
The obvious downside to this solution was heat build-up due to the continuous nature of the process. So, using the inherent strength of the container, we placed a chiller and water reservoir on the top of the first container.
Without using any more factory floor space or requiring planning controls, we were able to give the Client all they wanted in terms of capacity. The complete project took 8 weeks from inception to acceptance. The price was fixed before work started and completed in time and on budget.

System replacement to reduce energy, running costs and carbon footprint.
A thorough survey was undertaken of the existing plant and recommendations for optimum replacements made, along with a complete plan of the proposed works.
Upon agreement the old pumps were removed and replaced with up-to-date energy efficient pumps, utilising existing variable speed drives. All the pumps were installed individually to reduce the vulnerability of the system and allow full functionality throughout the process.
Project completed on time, to a fixed price, and a happy customer!

Investigation of system failures, recommendation, and remediation.
Having received many complaints from their members about lack of hot water and even water at all, the client required a survey of their plant to determine the cause of their problems.
The problems revolved around some very old and fixed speed booster sets that were neither working properly due to poor maintenance nor rated sufficiently for the extended facilities.
New variable speed multi pump boosters were sized according to the increased demands of the client’s members, installed and commissioned.
Having removed the inefficient and out-dated units, the new booster sets have given the client’s ears a welcome relief from member complaints.
At a Thames-side fuel terminal the new lorry park of 10,000 sq metres on what had previously been open ground was producing a large amount of water run-off with subsequent localised flooding.
Come up with a working answer without interrupting the working of the terminal.
After a site survey a recommendation was made to install a new sump and pump the water 300m through new pipes to a discharge point.
Two sump pumps with a further interceptor were installed and discharge pipework linked both the sumps and interceptor, all buried and resurfaced.
Prior to completion of the project, there were huge puddles in the lorry park, causing potential risks for the operator. Following the completion of the work, it was great to see the parking area being kept dry by the new system. Dry feet and a happy workforce.

“Well, I don’t know how that got there?” said the Client!
“Magic” said the engineer on call.

Cougar Field Engineers are regularly spoilt with picturesque views from site plant rooms. (They insist most of them are rather less appealing than the views above!)
Nevertheless, it doesn’t distract them from their primary focus; replacing fixed speed, electricity guzzling old units on-site.
If you have an old unit that needs bringing back to life, or even better, burying and replacing with the very latest in modern energy saving technology, do let me know.
You know who to call!
