Kaimai Valley Services had a bad odour problem with a sewage pump station near a shopping centre in Matamata. They got regular complaints from shoppers that were unfortunate enough to be close by as well as from the shop owners who were concerned about the effect on their business. Kaimai Valley Services first tried a chemical dosing system that sprayed chlorine dioxide onto some plastic balls that the foul air was supposed to pass by and get deodorised however this system was an abject failure.
A major dairy factory in New Zealand needed to provide positive inlet pressure to a dosing pump that pumped very precise amounts of a viscous milk product into a process. Because the existing dosing pump did not have positive inlet pressure flows were erratic and the dosing inaccurate.
The issue was that any pump used to provide positive pressure had to have precise pressure control as well as an emergency over-pressure relief valve to ensure that the dosing pump was not over-pressurized.
An oil field in New Zealand need a pump that could pump produced water from a well at a rate of 1,000l/min @ 1,000psi 3 – 4km back to a treatment plant (which also included going up and over a hill). Some of the challenges faced included the high salt content of the water (greater than 2%) and the fact that the pump was going to be in a hazardous area.
Pump & Valve were asked to quote on 2 x pumps for pumping GBT thickened sludge at a large treatment plant in the South Island. GBT thickened sludge is not an easy liquid to pump furthermore the pumps needed to be reliable and offer long service life.
