Entering Into the Spirit of Energy Saving
William Grant started his Scottish whiskey distillery in 1887. Today, this well-known brand has an enviable reputation for the quality of spirits they produce and distribute internationally. Always looking to see how they can improve, they approached Grundfos Pumps to review their energy efficiency. Having undertaken an initial energy check, Grundfos identified several areas where significant savings were possible.
Taking the advice offered, two new boiler feed support pumps were purchased, and their performance was measured over a 6-month period. Results showed electrical savings of £56k pa; the removal of the modulation valve saved £18k per boiler on maintenance costs; a reduction in breakdown and/or steam issues on site; improved steam quality and well as gas savings of up to 9%.
