PressBoost in November

Pressurisation Unit Installations In another busy month, we carried out a large variety of project work, with several different types of pressurisation unit installations. From left to right: First we have a Stuart Turner Midi 235 unit, this replaced a failed Mikrofill 3 unit which had been causing site issues for a long time, eventually […]

Fixed Speed to Variable Speed Booster Replacement

The Justification: Here at PressBoost something we take seriously is energy savings, the conversion from fixed speed to variable speed pumps typically results in 30-50% energy savings (one large hotel in Daresbury saw savings of 53%). The larger the motor, typically the larger the saving. Fixed speed pumps often run on timer and if the accumulator vessels […]

Home Booster Replacement

The Installation: Here at PressBoost we offer service and maintenance to domestic booster units as well as commercial. Recently we replaced a home booster unit at a school in Liverpool. The existing Grundfos unit had obsolete controls and a failed control board, therefore, the only suitable alternative was replacement. We replaced the unit with a Lowara […]

Fixed speed Booster Unit replacement

This site in Wigan, pictured below, had been having a number of problems with their fixed speed Booster Unit. This Booster feeds a large residential building and as such it is critical that it is kept in optimum condition. The existing unit was ageing and had a multiplicity of issues including: Jockey pump n0n-return valve […]

4 Pump Booster Unit – Fixed to variable speed conversion

One of the many services that we offer here at PressBoost is conversion of fixed speed booster units to variable speed. When converting a fixed speed booster to variable speed the energy savings are considerable (approx. 30-50{546ee268ce7713d2b6d4f6ff974fadd45b4c551b6f43a7e80340ad9a7da26c27} per annum), therefore, the cost of conversion can be recovered very quickly and the savings going forward are […]

3 Pump Booster Unit Install July 2015

PressBoost installed this 3 Pump Variable speed unit, type GHV30  at a site in Swinton after the site had issues with their existing equipment. The GHV series of booster unit has an individual master inverter, transducer and accumulator vessel for each pump, with individual isolation and drain valves for maintenance purposes. The reasoning  is to […]

Drinking Water Booster Unit Install

This installation was carried out at a site in Liverpool earlier this year. The existing unit was over 30 years old, and in need of replacement. The existing unit was significantly bigger than the new unit that PressBoost have installed, this meant we were able to reuse the existing plinth and marry up with the […]

Three Pump variable speed Booster Unit and Sectional Tank Install

This ageing and obsolete transfer set at a site in Salford was in need of updating and the site were keen to change the unit to variable speed,  due to the significant energy savings this option provides. PressBoost cut and capped the pipework feeding the roof tanks which were then drained and decommissioned and converted the building […]

Booster Unit panel replacement

This job involved PressBoost replacing an existing U/S variable speed control panel on a three pump boosted water unit supplying a hotel, with a new panel fitted with ABB inverters. In conjunction with ABB we have developed a range of variable speed control panels that can be retrofitted to all makes of existing fixed and variable speed booster […]

Teknospeed Booster Unit Install

This install was carried out at a hotel in Bournemouth. This site had a Grundfos pump feeding several areas of the hotel but the actual application of the pump was somewhat of an unknown quantity. However, given the size of the building and the static head of the system, the pump was not fit for purpose. The […]
