ABB software cuts maintenance costs for Severn Trent Water - ABB UK - Drives
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 consist of a series of rapid ramp ups in both forward and reverse directions. Taking one to two minutes to complete, the cleaning cycle removes the debris from around the pump volute, preventing it from entering the pump and blocking it when the pump ramps up from zero to its normal operating speed.
