East Butterwick Pumpstation, UK

The project:


Renovation of a pump station in East Butterwick, North Lincolnshire, Great Britain


Executing companies:

T-T Pumps Ltd., Cheshire

Messingham Internal Drainage Board


The pump station was built after the Second World War and is used to pump off flood water.


The problem:


In 1981 our partner, T-T Pumps Ltd., equipped this pump station with two TO500B855 units, each with a 55kW power rating.

900 litres per second is moved at a height of 4,5m. The operating range should additionally be between 0m and 7,5m.

Although the pumps have run for twenty-three years without failure or need for spare parts, the Messingham Internal Drainage Board decided in 2004 that the pumps had reached the end of their lifespan.


Our solution:


Again, T-T Pumps Ltd. won the bid. The solution that was offered was simple and inexpensive: In 2005 it was possible to employ two new type TO500B855 pumps of the latest design to be operated for another 24 years – without risks or large-scale reconstruction.


The installation of the pump control developed by T-T Pumps Ltd. has now made it possible for the pump station to be used for draining the surrounding fields during dry periods.

I tilfælde af slibende og ætsende anvendelse vil stærkere slitage forekomme naturligt i visse komponenter. Med hensyn til ovenstående anvendelse kan slitage hovedsageligt finde sted i pumpehjul, omrørerenhed, sugeplade, akselhylster, oliering, mekanisk tætning, pumpehus, si, motorhus og udløbskobling. Afhængigt af arbejdsvilkårene kan levetiden for disse dele variere betydeligt og kan være kortere end den lovlige garantiperiode.
