Keep sludge moving

Published:  27 August, 2021

M&C Engineering says it has helped a water company bring an end to a costly and time-consuming diesel pump application, by introducing a new skid-mounted unit from Borger.

Whilst a tank was being replaced at a treatment works, the water company were paying significant hire and running costs – but the flow is now being diverted by a 24.4kW Borger EL 1550 pump, which has been skid-mounted by M&C Engineering.

Richard Shipp, director at M&C Engineering, said: “We’re very impressed with Borger, as is our customer. The new pump has been running 24/7 with no problems whatsoever. The diesel pumps that were at the plant were very hungry and expensive to run – and although this is a temporary set-up to keep the RAS (Return Activated Sludge), moving, the Borger pump is lined up for a permanent installation.”
