BrewDog fixes pumping problem

Related tags Pump

Scottish craft brewer BrewDog has installed a new pumping system with the assistance of Xylem at its brewery in Ellon, Aberdeenshire to overcome a problem with an existing system, which had increased costs and downtime.

The fibrous quality of hop sludge produced was threatening to cause build-ups and blockages at the base of the conventional, flat-bottomed, packaged pump station – causing delays to the brewing cycle with plant downtime and expensive tankering costs. The problems were exacerbated by the high temperature in which the existing system had to operate.

With this in mind, Xylem, working in partnership with local distributor Filpumps, recommended the use of its ‘warm liquid’ N-impeller pump range. The Flygt Experior pump station installed featured a Flygt N 3153 warm liquid pump and a control panel complete with SmartRun variable speed drive pump controller and telemetry.

A third phase expansion followed and this resulted in a further order for a Flygt Tops packaged pump station, Flygt Experior pumps and SmartRun technology.
