SPP PUMPS CONTACT DETAILS AND GLOBAL LOCATIONS
1901 The Company moved from London to new premises in Reading, UK and expanded rapidly.
OVER 130 YEARS’ EXPERIENCE SPP Pumps has led the design and manufacture of centrifugal pumps and engineered pumping solutions for over 130 years.
1961 Pulsometer Engineering joined Sigmund Pumps of Gateshead making one of the largest pump companies in Europe, known as Sigmund Pulsometer Pumps, SPP for short. 1986 SPP Pumps acquired Henry Sykes plc adding the famous ‘Sykes’ pumps to its range. The Sykes facility was completely redeveloped and in 1987 all manufacturing was moved to Coleford, in the West of England, where it is today. 1875 - 1878 Founded in 1875, a British Engineer bought the patent rights of the Pulsometer Pump from an American, Thomas Hall. “The Pulsometer Engineering Company Ltd”was born. From this came the birth of the Company as it is known today. 1989 After a brief period of ownership by the Braithewaite Group, SPP Pumps was acquired by the TBG group in 1989 as part of Sterling Fluid Systems.
2003 - PRESENT SPP Pumps was acquired by Kirloskar Brothers Ltd, India in 2003. SPP Pumps launched the Lowest Life-Cycle Cost Series pumps in October 2004 in order to match the requirements of the 21st Century Industrial &Water Utility customers. SPP Pumps’ global expansion programme has created its new Engineering Services Division. Embracing the latest in technology to deliver the next chapter in its success. SPP Pumps plans further facilities at Coleford and modernised service centres to support future customer demands. Increased manufacturing capacity and a larger labour force are also part of the vision.

SPP Pumps’ re-rating service can substantially reduce energy bills, as well as reducing equipment life cycle costs. The graph clearly shows what happens either side of a pumps best eciency point. Many pumps are over-rated at the initial design stage. When a pump is subsequently in use, it is then over-specied for the actual system demand. When a pump
operates below its Best Eciency Point, it wastes costly energy. Excess, unused capacity comes at a price. Working closely with our Energy division, SPP Pumps service centres re-rate pumps to ensure Best Eciency Point operation for the system, saving substantial costs and increasing service life. Following re-rating, we test every pump at our test facility as proof of the upgrade and conrm the energy savings in monetary terms.

TESTING: PROVEN INTEGRITY TO ‘AS NEW’ STANDARDS
Every new and reconditioned pump is tested in SPP Pumps’ own extensive facility. Rigorous duty tests, are often witnessed by customers and contractors. Testing can be performed on both electric motor driven as well as diesel pumps.. With a 1.2 million litre well six metres deep, engineers can test pressures up to 50 bar; ows up to 2000 l/s; and at 50Hz powers up to 800kW at 415V and 2MW at 11kV, 10kV, 6.6kV, 5kV, 3.3kV - with generators available for even higher powers or voltages.
HYDRAULIC MODELLING & COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS (CFD) ANALYSIS OPTIMISING PUMP PERFORMANCE
Hydraulic modelling allows SPP Pumps’ engineering team to analyse and optimise any pump design to improve eciency and performance. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis software predicts and veries ow patterns across alternative designs – for instance impeller blade shapes and hydraulic passages. Pump sumps and intakes can be optimised to nd any vortex formations, air entrainment and to reduce swirl angles at the pump inlet. Reducing cavitation and allowing the pump to operate closer to its best eciency point increases the life of the equipment. CFD analysis tools also predict pump performance, NPSHr and any cavitation before parts are manufactured. As well as developing new designs, the process is also used to re- engineer existing equipment to meet new demands. Cutting-edge tools available to SPP Pumps engineers include: • PTC Creo Parametric 3D modelling software - generates hydraulic shapes for new designs or for reverse- engineered parts created from scanned data. • Pointwise meshing tool - generates the mesh required for analysis • Open FOAM CFD analysis software - analyses and improves designs
• CFTurbo Pump design software – rapidly creates vane shapes based on duty requirements All nished products or models are physically veried in SPP Pumps’ extensive Coleford test facility.
BEST EFFICIENCY POINT ENSURING THE RIGHT SYSTEM MATCH A pump’s Best Eciency Point (BEP) should closely match the ow rate duty and application needs. Operating a pump away from the BEP will increase loads, wear, vibration, energy use and the risk of damage by cavitation. SPP pump and system assessments determine the actual installed pump operating regime and oer advice to optimise energy usage.
3D MODELLING AND PRINTING BUILDING BETTER, FASTER FOR LESS
Capitalising on the latest advances in 3D printing technology, SPP Pumps is one of the few pump manufacturers routinely using this fast-track technique. 3D printing oers many benets when creating new or replacement parts. These include: • Rapid prototyping – modelling to ensure components t and function before investing in standard manufacturing processes. • Saving time – allowing fast design renement before entering production.
• Reducing cost – reducing advanced tooling and testing costs by producing 3D printed prototypes.
REVERSE/RE ENGINEERING CAPTURE, IMPROVE PERFORMANCE THEN RECREATE.
Using 3D digital capture technology, SPP Pumps’ reverse engineering capabilities allow any component to be copied and manufactured as an exact replacement. The process also provides the opportunity to add value - to enhance, update or modify the original to improve performance. RECREATE: COMPONENTS AND EQUIPMENT WITHIN THE SAME FOOTPRINT Commission exact replica components made to your OEM’s original specications and tolerances. With the latest mobile laser scanners, SPP Pumps can reverse-engineer complex components of any size into 3D models for manufacture. Worn or broken parts are scanned on-site, minimising downtime.
IMPROVE: COMPONENTS AND BEST DESIGN WITHIN THE SAME FOOTPRINT Use the reverse engineering process to improve and enhance original equipment specications. Improve equipment eciency, reduce running costs, lower noise and enhance performance and lifespan. SPP Pumps regularly re-engineers shafts, impellers, wear rings, casings and rotary equipment. REGENERATE: LOST DATA Recreate information from original drawings, patterns and tooling that are lost or misplaced. Once collated, data is safely held for servicing and creating replacement spare parts for matching machines in use. MANUFACTURE: 3D SAND CASTING SPP Pumps creates extremely high quality sand castings quickly and cost-eectively. 3D sand cores, sand moulds and patterns are automatically generated directly from the CAD model – much faster and more detailed process than making conventional wooden, resin or aluminium moulds. Supporting complex component detail and superior surface nish.

ENERGY SAVINGS: BRINGING TOTAL OPERATING EXPENSES DOWN
Pumps use approximately 25% of the world’s electricity and are responsible for an estimated 10% of carbon emissions. SPP Pumps’ condition monitoring systems pinpoint efficiency and performance degradation, helping you to identify and minimise energy waste. MONITOR, AUDIT AND REDUCE ENERGY USE When a pump system operates close to its optimum efficiency, both energy use and CO2 emissions fall. By providing detailed visibility for installed pump equipment, SPP Pumps helps customers understand and often dramatically reduce their total operating expenses. The data often also informs modifications and improvements during pump refurbishment – an ideal opportunity to optimise performance.
ENERGY SAVINGS, LEAK-FREE. A Pump System Assessment by SPP Pumps has allowed a UK water utility company to reduce energy costs by 47%. Projected 20-year whole lifetime cost savings are £485,000 and 7.7 million tonnes of CO2 emissions. Accurately mapping the pump duty and impeller diameter required has also eliminated costly leaks from mechanical seals and prevented overloaded drive motors. Through a site audit, SPP Pumps’ energy team quickly and accurately pinpoint any system inefficiencies. A succinct report provides detailed recommendations to cut emissions and achieve energy and running cost savings worth between 5% and 30%.
