PROBLEMS WITH SLUDGE? ENERGY PUMPS RE-INFORCED VALVES AND DIAPHRAGMS

DON’T BUY INFERIOR PUMPS ENERGY PUMPS ARE THE SUPERIOR CHOICE

Our success in the pumping of Primary and Humus sludge is based on the fact that we approach sewage sludge as a chemical mixture, which varies greatly from site to site. Since sewage is in constant contact with the rubber parts of any Pump, these parts must cope with a combination of mechanical fatigue and chemical attack. There are different types of Valves used in Energy Diaphragm and Ram Pumps. These Valves are commonly known by our own trademark of ‘Bullfrog’ Valves. Flap Valves are also available, but are only truly reliable on aqueous solutions. We also manufacture Ball Valves, which will pass sludge provided that there are no rags, sticks, disposable razors, etc.

Historically, pumps are only as good as the rubber parts with which they operate. If the rubber parts are unreliable the pumps will also be unreliable. Energy Valves and Diaphragms have been designed by the Manufacturers of Energy Pumps to be tough and uncompromising on Sludge. They work in-conjunction with the sturdy, Aluminium Energy Ram and Diaphragm Pumps, ensuring maximum delivery, minimal problems and major pump-ability.

We have manufactured since 1979 and our experience has enabled us to ensure that our range of Bullfrog Valves is manufactured from a consistently reliable form of compounded rubber. Sludge has a seriously corrosive effect on rubber, regardless if the waste is natural or chemical. Due to this compound our Patented Energy Valves and Diaphragms retain consistent elastic properties. Energy Pumps will reliably run at high or low pressure and cope well in extreme weather conditions. We spent some five years developing and testing our products before we became satisfied with the reliability of our present rubber compound, which has operated with remarkable success for over 30 years. Our Diaphragms and Valves are of a high quality. To increase their reliability some years ago, in co-operation with a textile manufacturer, we developed a new multi-yarn fabric. Our Customers have tested these on many sites throughout the UK and have confirmed our expectations that there is a substantial increase in working pressures regularly being achieved.

ENERGY BULLFROG VALVES

Energy Ram, Maxi, Major and Mastiff Diaphragm Pumps have successfully used our Patented Energy Ball, Bullfrog and Mallard Valves for over 30 years. The Energy Bullfrog Tri-Lipped Valve also fully Patented can be used successfully on liquid and liquid-waste applications. Energy Bullfrog Valves are the standard Valves for our Energy Ram and Diaphragm Pumps. They have proved their worth over many years and are equally capable of handling up to 30% dry solids, while achieving constant pressures of up to 6-8 BAR. Energy Valves, designed by the Partners since 1984 form the fundamental foundation of Energy Ram and Diaphragm Pumps, allowing ragging and solids to pass easily through the pumps and proving time and again Energy Pumps high resistance to blocking because of the reinforced designs. The Valves within Energy Ram and Diaphragm Pumps are also popular for pumping Oil on Rigs, plus waste on Farms; Abattoirs; Quarries and in every area where moving heavy Sludge is a problem. Energy Ball Valves are more successful than any other ball valve in operation. From the thousands of Pumps we have supplied with our own Energy Valves, over 8,000 of these have been installed in the UK alone. Energy Pumps can be installed on lift and drop installations, or on long distance pumping for pressures up to 8 BAR, with a maximum solid size = 60mm.

ENERGY MALLARD VALVE

Energy Major Diaphragm Pumps have been successful in using Patented Energy Mallard Valves for over 25 years. This Valve has now become the standard Valve for our Energy Mallard Ram Pump. It has proved its worth and is capable of handling up to 30% dry solids, while achieving constant pressures of 6 Bar. As with the Major Bullfrog Valve it passes ragging easily and is highly resistant to blocking. It has become popular not only with the Sewage Treatment Industry, but also with Farming, Abattoirs, Quarries and everywhere where moving heavy sludge is a problem. The Valve is more successful than any Ball Valve in operation. From the thousands of Pumps we have supplied with this type of Energy Valve, over 2,000 of these have been installed in Thames Water and beyond. This Pump can be installed on lift and drop installations, or on long distance pumping for pressures up to 6 BAR. Maximum solid size = 60mm.

We have served generations of WWTW Customers and solved untold problems on sites throughout the UK using the long-lasting Energy Major & Mallard Positive Flow Bases on thousands of Energy Pumps

An accumulation of problems not found when using an Energy reinforced Valve or Diaphragm, will reduce the operational effectiveness of inferior pumps and eventually cause them to break-down. This is an indefinable problem for the maintenance department. Recognition and resolution of this common problem can be frustrating, time-consuming and expensive. Energy Pumps Valves and Diaphragms, which successfully compete with inferior valves and diaphragms are carefully manufactured and quality-tested to complement each other, so producing Pumps with a high resilience to sludge containing grit, bone, bricks and silt. For maintenance purposes, Energy Valves and Diaphragms are costeffective and simple to install. Engineers can rest assured that Energy Pumps with Energy Valves will quietly get on with the job they have been employed to do, giving the maintenance crew peace of mind.

Energy‘s Patented Diaphragm Aluminium Seatings and Valve Housings, which were designed to complement Energy Pumps’ Valves and Diaphragms have simply and effectively addressed previous, complicated sludge-pumping problems. Energy Pumps successfully resolve long-term sludge issues that inferior pumps cannot. Our quality bases increase and sustain Energy Pump’s overall working effectiveness and reliability. Energy Pumps put cost-effective Energy-efficiency back into your pumping application.

COST EFFECTIVE

All Energy Ram and Diaphragm Pumps are competitively cost-effective, providing Water Authorities with genuine cost-saving industrial pumping equipment for most sludge applications. Energy Ram and Diaphragm Pumps, when put on test runs, shall always and without failure or complications form tough competition against other pumps in terms of longevity, quality, strength, delivery and cost. Energy Diaphragm Pumps are more cost-effective than any centrifugal pump and the Energy Mastiff Diaphragm Pump will on many applications do the work of our competitors ram pumps more energy-efficiently and more cost-effectively.

ENERGY EFFICIENT

All Energy Ram and Diaphragm Pumps are eligible for the ECA claims, as all Energy Pumps are supplied with energy-efficient, long-lasting IE2 Motors wherever applicable. Energy Diaphragm Pumps will “run dry.”

EASE OF MAINTENANCE

Energy Ram and Diaphragm are uncomplicated and simple to maintain as will become clear on the purchase of Energy Pumps. The Valves and Diaphragms for Energy Diaphragm Pumps are easily and quickly removed for maintenance purposes, facilitating site Engineers to complete maintenance efficiently and without complications or undue stress. Engineers tell us that their, “Preferred Pumps are Energy Pumps”. All Energy Diaphragm and Ram Pumps and all parts and spares have been designed, Manufactured and Patented by the Partners of the Energy Chemical & Equipment Company, pioneers of solid, robust British Pumps for heavy-duty Sewage Treatment and Filter Press Feeds since 1979.

INNOVATIVE AND RELIABLE

Our vast experience in Sludge-handling has enabled us to ensure that our range of Bullfrog Valves are manufactured from a consistently reliable form of compounded rubber, upon which Sludge would otherwise have a seriously corrosive effect, regardless if the waste is natural or chemical. Patented Energy Valves and Diaphragms retain consistent elastic properties. Energy Pumps will reliably run at high or low pressures and cope well in extreme weather conditions. We spent some five years developing and testing our high-quality products before we became satisfied with the reliability of our present rubber compound, which has operated with remarkable success for over 30 years. To increase the reliability of the Pumps some years ago, we reinforced our Valves with a new multi-yarn fabric. Our Customers have tested these Valves on many sites throughout the UK and have confirmed our expectations that there is a substantial increase in working pressures regularly being achieved. The Diaphragm Pumps can be fully portable.
