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.

In het geval van schurend en corrosief gebruik, zullen bepaalde componenten van nature sneller verslijten. Met betrekking tot bovenstaande toepassing kan slijtage met name optreden in de waaier, de roerder, het zuigdeksel, de asbus, de oliering, de mechanische asafdichting,het pomphuis, de zuigkorf, de motorbehuizing en de afvoerkoppeling. Afhankelijk van de werkingsomstandigheden kan de levensduur van die onderdelen aanzienlijk variëren en kan deze korter zijn dan de wettelijke garantieperiode.
Gelieve in dit verband rekening te houden met onze algemene voorwaarden, die we u op aanvraag kunnen toesturen.
