Retroflo Services
Case Studies

Since implementing the Retroflo system in Skinningrove Transfer Pumping Station no operator / maintenance intervention has been required to remove blockages from the pumps. By initiating pump reversal cycles on detection of partial blockages and returning the pump to optimum operating conditions, this equates to a 12% decrease in power during normal operation. A vast improvement in the condition of the Wet Well is observed due to success of the Flushing Cycle. The Flushing Cycle serves to cleanse the Wet Well which reduces the threat of blockages to the pumps and reduces the need for routine cleansing.

As an example of efficiency improvements, the recent installation of the RPC_2000 at South West Water’s Ilsham Valley Pumping Station has recorded a substantial reduction in absorbed power through reduced blockages, cleaner wells and the optimization of pump performance. In terms of labour costs alone the station saved £20k on the 2008 expenditure for reactive maintenance call-outs to unblock pumps.

EV Charge Point Installation

CLIENT: Scottish Canals
DATE: January 2014
PROJECT: Design, install and commission electrical works for a competition standard whitewater course.
SCOPE OF WORK: Working in conjunction with Rapid Water Courses and Meldrum Construction, Retroflo were appointed to undertake electrical installation and commissioning works for the whitewater course and control kiosk.

Open the Case Study

The project entailed replacing 4 no. Pump Control Systems in the Teesside area that were beyond their service life and/or in an unsafe condition. The new panels were of a non-standard design that is not to NWG standard panel design for pumping stations and MCCs. The telemetry outstations at the majority of the pumping stations were to be replaced with new outstations incorporated into the design of the new control panel.
