ABB launches UK-wide variable speed drives hire fleet

New benchmark in thermal flowmeasurement T

he new benchmark in thermal flow measurement is the SA from ifm electronic. Quite simply the best and easiest to use, the SA is optimised for a range of media including water, oils, glycol and air. Not only will the SA measure the flow rate, but the device will also measure the temperature of the medium. The SA series are equipped with the latest sensing technologies for optimum setting and usage, as well as featuring a very flexible design concept to reduce

BB has invested significantly in the rollout of a variable speed drive hire fleet across the United Kingdom and Ireland, with units extending from 3 kW up to several megawatts. Hire drives can be delivered the same day, and installed and commissioned within a matter of hours by engineers from one of twelve ABB authorised value providers.


There are four scenarios where hiring a drive can deliver customer benefits:

Emergency or unexpected failure: Hiring a drive can be a quick low cost way of keeping critical processes running in the event of a breakdown. It reduces the cost of downtime whilst providing time to repair the failed equipment or to source and allocate capital for a permanent replacement.


Temporary capacity: Hire drives can be used for short-term, semi-permanent or seasonal applications, allowing companies to ramp process capacity up or down with ease, while eliminating storage and maintenance costs. Prove predicted energy savings: If a variable speed application has not previously used a drive, or if an existing drive is due for upgrade, hiring can be a low cost way to prove predicted energy savings before purchase and in a real environment.

Equipment testing: Te Testing houses may be called upon to test variable speed applications, but may not have a

suitable drive with which to pair it in-house. Hiring a drive can allow testing to get underway at short notice and low cost.

Drives are hired at a fixed daily rate, which includes all installation and maintenance. The ABB authorised value provider network can be contacted by telephone on 0333 005 7001, or via ABB (ABBN: SIX Swiss Ex) is a pioneering technology leader in power grids, electrification

ABB Ltd ABB Ltd.. Flotronic introduces ‘ONE NUT’ barrel unloading F

lotronic has introduced a new barrel and drum unloading system, combining the unique ‘ONE NUT’ pump with their barrel unloading skid. The new system enables you to pump highly viscous materials out of increased flow rates. This syste

NUT’ sanitary style pump which is based on our 3A and EHEDG design. This style of pump has already proven itself in the hygienic / sanitary industries and is a match for any environment or process where avoidance of product contamination is paramount. The system can be Cleaned in Place using the pump itself or an external CIP rig or, because of the ‘ONE NUT’ design of the pump, it can be easily stripped down for cleaning.

“Using an inflatable seal, the system ensures minimal wastage is achieved and the minimum of product remains in the barrel.” Says Leighton Jones, Sales Director, Flotronic Pumps. “As the seal inflates it creates an excellent seal while moving down the barrel and at deflates for easy removal. Ther

other systems, which means you can empty challenging viscous fluids from full size drums in a matter of minutes, improving productivity with increased profit potential.” This hygienic hands-free control of the unloading is efficient and reliable using proven technology, with application across the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. Flotronic provide b espoke systems to customer requirements and can cater for 200 litre/55 gallon drum or sim
