#14 Cutting Energy Costs - Food Processing Plants
A Cat Pumps Model 6831 high pressure pump is cutting energy and maintenance costs at a leading food processing plant in the UK. Supplied by AESPump Limited in June 2012, the triplex positive displacement plunger pump has replaced two aging and troublesome Pitot Tube pumps used for washing filter screens and supplying high pressure wash-down hoses. In its first year of operation, the Cat Pumps unit has reduced the energy costs from £45,200 per annum to just £13,300, and maintenance costs from £30,000 per annum to £2,800. Of equal note is that the payback period for this change-out was just 9.9 months.. Read more
 
#13 Super Duplex Pressure Regulator Valve For Oil Industry
Cat Pumps (UK) Ltd is well established in the water treatment and petro-chemical industries where its triplex positive displacement pump range is the choice of engineers and companies who put quality and reliability before price. What is less known is that Cat Pumps also manufacturers valves to support the use of its high pressure pumps. When a proprietary valve will not achieve either the technical parameters or the relevant approval standards, then Cat Pumps will look to offer a suitable solution. One recent project that illustrates this approach involves the Wolverhampton-based company Ovivo UK Ltd, a world leading supplier of equipment and solutions for the treatment of water.. Read more
 
#12 Underwater Clean Up With Cat Pumps
There can be few more challenging cleaning processes, nor ones that demand ingenious methods, than that of remote cleaning marine growth from subsea structures such as the legs of offshore platforms. For several years Aberdeen-based HPR UK has provided a one stop shop for ROV’s (Remote Operated Vehicles) and ancillary equipment, experienced pilots and survey engineers to carry out inspection projects where the use of divers could be time and safety prohibitive. Amongst its range of specialist services are ‘Hi Flo / Hi Pressure’ systems for cleaning marine growth from structures to allow for clear visual inspection... Read more
 
 #11 Fly Ash Filter System - Cloth Wash
  Cat Pumps (UK) Ltd is well established in the water treatment and petro-chemical industries where its triplex positive displacement pump range is the choice of engineers and companies who put quality and reliability before price.  One recent project that illustrates this approach involves the Stoke-on-Trent based company Micronics Engineered Filtration, a world leading supplier of equipment and solutions for liquid / solid separation. Micronics called on the resources of Cat Pumps when they were awarded the contract to provide a Fly Ash filtration package for Europe. The filtration package being supplied by Micronics was designed to remove fly ash from water using a filter cloth system. Read More
 
#10 Forrester Chicken Wash-Saver
  Most large food processing and production sites have a centralised hygiene or sanitation cleaning system, many of which feature one or more high-pressure pumps feeding a distributed array of wash-down guns and lances. Using high pressure water demonstrates advantages over chemical-based cleaning, not least of which are effective removal of deposits and simpler waste-water disposal. With many users moving to pressures below 60 bar, the objection against airborne aerosols has also been largely addressed. However, many such systems were installed at a time when excessive energy consumption was not even a consideration...Read more
 
#9 Brewery Keg Cleaning
Cat Pumps high pressure pumps have been widely used for many years for removing labels from beer kegs. This article was recently published in Brewer & Distiller magazine and brings up-to-date news from the brewery located only a few miles from our UK warehouse. Amongst other advantages, this application demonstrates the customer satisfaction derived from the long-term durability of our pumps in critical process applications. Removing identification labels from beer kegs is a task that all breweries have to address and without the proper equipment it can prove to be a tiresome process...Read more
 
#8 Metal Powder Production
  Metal powders are used in a variety of manufacturing processes, including sintering, thermal spray surface coating and welding, and the fine powders required are produced using one of four main processes including Water Atomisation. This technique is employed by ECKA Granules, one of the leading international producers of metal powders. Their atomisation lines have the capacity to produce in excess of 3,000 tonnes per annum of Nickel, Cobalt and Stainless Steel powders in the most modern facility in their market. In order to keep its competitive edge, the company is constantly looking for ways to improve production...Read more
   
#7 Odour Control Misting System
  Odour control within the effluent and waste treatment industries is largely achieved by the installation of a misting system, whereby a very fine spray of water is released into the atmosphere either adjacent to or above the affected area. Fine water droplets prevent the release of obnoxious odours to the wider environment (Fig.1). It is a proven technology and there are very many types of systems available. In order to create a mist, water is pumped through the spray nozzles at a high and constant pressure. For many types of pump, this can be a demanding or impossible requirement... Read more
   
#6 Filter Press Cleaning
  With environmental legislation imposing even tighter restrictions on the treatment of industrial wastewater, effective filtration is increasingly being seen as an essential part of the overall treatment process.  In order for filter presses to satisfy the purpose for which they are designed, that being to separate solids from liquid and form a filter cake, each filter cloth has to be capable of allowing the optimum level of filtrate to pass through during each operating cycle. The creation of a high quality filter cake, in other words one that has a high solids and extremely low liquid content, is largely dependent on the effectiveness of the filter cloth... Read more
   
#5 Food Processing Heat Exchangers
  Scraped surface heat exchangers are widely used within the edible fats processing industry, but to provide the desired level of effectiveness the product being handled should be pumped at a constant pressure to achieve a constant liquid flow. This application is perfectly suited to triplex piston pumps manufactured by Cat Pumps. The Chemetator scraped surface heat exchanger is regarded by many food manufacturers as the industry standard as it gives the product a consistent texture on a continuous system from blending to packaging. Capable of handing heat sensitive and viscous materials at temperatures from -35ºC to +170ºC.. Read more

#3 CO2 Pumping in Nuclear Power Stations
  Liquid CO2 (carbon dioxide) is used in processes across many industries. However, pumping it presents an array of challenges both to equipment/systems manufacturers and plant managers because CO2 must be transferred at a controlled combination of low temperature and high pressure to minimise vapour forming. For the pump manufacturer, the inherent compressibility and poor lubricating properties also places special demands on pump design. Within the nuclear power industry, CO2   is the main form of temperature cooling for advanced gas cooled nuclear reactors during the reaction process. Read more
   
#2 Triplex Pumps for Misting Applications
  Odour control within the landfill and waste treatment industries is largely achieved by the installation of a misting system, whereby a very fine spray of water is released into the atmosphere either adjacent to or above the affected area. Fine water droplets prevent the release of obnoxious odours to the wider environment. It is a proven technology and there are very many types of systems available on the world market.
Where an application only requires a small misting system, typically between one and 100 misting nozzles. Read more
