Prevents sediment build-up by randomly varying the surface level within a preset range. Using ABB drives' level control, tank and pipes can be kept clean using a "flush effect" which rapidly pumps water through the tank and pipes. Level control eliminates the need for a control valve, bypassing... read more
Over time pump impellers used in waste water applications can become clogged or ragged, lowering pump efficiency. This can cause the pump to jam completely. ABB anti-jam routine runs the pump back and forward rapidly to clean the impeller, preventing build-up of solids on the pump.... read more
When starting a pump system, pressure surges can seriously damage the pipeline and pumps. ABB drives' soft pipe filling allows a pipeline to fill smoothly.... read more
Multi-pump control is a built in feature of ABB industrial drives. It is used to control flow rate within pumps running in parallel and helps to reduce energy costs. Within certain pump applications, additional head or flow rate capacity is needed at certain times to deal with large fluid volum... read more
Built within ABB's ACQ810 variable-speed drive is a sleep and boost function. This function detects pressure drops in the pipes and runs the pump to boost it prior to shut down. Pumping restarts when the pressure falls below the minimum level. This function extends the pump's sleep time and helps sa... read more
Pump protection, built within ABB drives, helps to prevent damage to pumping systems by identifying any abnormality within a water process. For example, if the flow is too low or too high or a pump has stalled or risks cavitation, then the drive will automatically raise an alarm to limit the risk.... read more
ABB's anti-jamming software is helping Severn Trent Water save up to 2,400 a week on pump maintenance at its Worcester sewage treatment works. A module of ABB's Intelligent Pump Control software, the Anti-Jam software performs a number of cleaning cycles every time the pump starts, each cycle c... read more
Leixlip Water Treatment Plant is saving over 500,000 a year on its pumping costs thanks to the installation of ABB variable speed drives. The Leixlip Water Treatment Works in Co. Kildare is the second largest water treatment facility in Ireland. With a capacity of 175,000 m3 a day, it suppli... read more
