Quantum’s Hire Fleet creates improved process, reliability and efficiency at Sugar Facility.

Its peak season for processing sugar beet and we received a request from a Sugar Company to help create a new system that improves the cleaning pump process and more importantly, the reliability. This new system had to be super silent, efficient and be able to withstand weather conditions of the outdoor site environment.

We partnered with a Pump Supply Company to give the best solution to our customer, a new pump system, a 22kW Hire Variable Speed Drive and Generator (both from Quantum Controls extensive hire fleet) were supplied to the customer. This gave the system extra flexibility with variable speed control and pump reliability.

Due to the location and such harsh operating conditions, our Unique Weatherproof Variable Speed Drives were the only VSDs on the market for this application. Because this was initially a trial to test the new system, a super silent and efficient generator was also supplied, this was to save on mains modifications in the timescale allowed.

The new system was trialled and proved a success, the units will stay on hire for a further 12 weeks while a new permanent system is installed.

Quantum Controls have an extensive range of hire equipment, not only Weatherproof Variable Speed Drives up to 4.5MW power rating, we have a fleet of; electric motors, mains cables, data loggers, flow meters, transformers, generators and harmonic filters. Our hire fleet are available 24/7 through our Quantum Prime service. One call to 0330 9000 247, day or night, and we will have any piece of equipment in transit within 30 minutes of your call.
