Over many years of working with the many quarrying companies in the UK, Pump Supplies have developed turnkey pumping systems to control and manage water levels and discharge flows in an effective and efficient way.
More recently this service has been extended to provide a bespoke monitoring and control solution that delivers the precise information and control to the pumping system to ensure that discharges are managed within the agreed compliance criteria.
The Pump Supplies control and monitoring package encompasses a standard shipping container/control room which securely houses the pump control panel, control and monitoring analysers, data logging equipment and flocculent storage and dosing rigs. A back-up silent set generator with an AMF panel keeps the system active during power outages.
An ultrasonic level controller provides start and stop signals to the variable frequency drives via the control PLC to dictate the process control. The PLC initiates the pumps and the flocculent dosing systems at predetermined lagoon levels and controls the pump speed and the flocculent dose rate proportional to the turbidity analyser 4-20mA output, thus allowing increased polymer contact time during high turbidity events.
Finally, a web-based telemetry system provides real-time status information, including lagoon level, pump status, flow rates and turbidity. Programmed alarm notifications provide key personnel with SMS and email alerts on a range of incidents including power failure, pump failure, high level and high turbidity. Access to this information is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week via PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
Additionally, Pump Supplies can provide a maintenance programme to provide year-round peace of mind to the site operator.
