BPMA Activity Highlights 2015/16 Way back in 2005, when the EU first identified those sectors that consume large amounts of electricity and subsequently organised studies as part of the EUP Directive 2005/32/EC to determine what could be done to reduce energy consumption, the BPMA was in the thick of the activity.

New BPMA President announced Mr Peter Reynolds, Managing Director of Grundfos Pumps Ltd was announced as the new President of the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA).

One such study named LOT 11 dealt with certain products within motor-driven systems. The outcome has been the delivery of new EU legislation covering fans, electric motors, glandless circulators and certain water pumps. The transition from the old EFF 1, 2 & 3 voluntary scheme to the new IE ratings of 1-4 is almost complete, with all motors ranging from 0.75kW to 375kW requiring a rating of IE3 (or IE2 with a VSD) as of 1st January 2017. It is believed this will be extended to 1000kW by 2020 under the new EU study Lot 30. There are of course exceptions, with the legislation only applying to three phase motors; all submersible motors and encapsulated motors that cannot be assessed for efficiency as a stand-alone unit are excluded. Single phase motors will be introduced within the LOT 30 study.

The role was officially passed on at the BPMA Annual General Meeting in November 2015, where Andy Ratcliffe, Managing Director of KSB Pumps, completed his two-year tenure and graciously handed the baton onto his successor.

In regard to glandless stand-alone and boiler integrated circulators, the two main technology changes designed to substantially influence energy savings are the move away from standard induction motors to permanent magnet motors and the move from standard speed technology to variable speed technology – Products Directive and legal text for Circulators can be found within commission regulation 622/2012 of 11th July 2012. As far as water pumps are concerned, the European pump industry agreed legislation intended to remove 40% of inefficient water pumps (in accordance with a Mean Efficiency Index – MEI) from the market, the respective time lines for which being January 2013 and January 2015. Two other study areas (LOTS) also relate to pumps and are ongoing. LOT 28 encompasses pumps for public and private waste water (including buildings, networks and treatment facilities), and for fluids with high solids content. Lot 29 encompasses pumps for private and public swimming pools, ponds, fountains and aquariums, as well as clean water pumps larger than those regulated under LOT 11.

Andy Ratcliffe hands over Presidency of the BPMA to Peter Reynolds

Steve Schofield, Director of the BPMA commented, “This is a great accolade and one that reflects the continuing efforts that Peter makes to raise the profile of the industry in general and to tackle the tough issues that it faces today. The BPMA has enjoyed the support and engagement of some very talented people at its helm over the years, including of course Andy Ratcliffe, and we are delighted to have Peter join that impressive line-up. I look forward to working with him as we continue to drive the association forward”.

The BPMA, through its European Federation, Europump, has actively participated with the European Commission in the development of these LOTS and has created several applicable working groups. The work of these Europump Working Groups has been, and will continue to be, vital in helping to influence future legislative measures and to safeguard the interests of its member companies.

Peter’s presidency coincides with the 75th Anniversary of the BPMA, and when asked to comment, Peter said, “Being elected as President of the BPMA is a great honour; one which has been heightened by the added good fortune of my term in office coinciding with its 75th Anniversary”. He added, “We have a number of activities planned to mark our 75 years of endeavour on behalf of the UK pump industry, and I look forward to an exciting and productive year ahead”. ■

These initiatives have formed the bedrock of a clearly defined energy reduction strategy policy that includes a systems based approach to the energy efficiency of pumps, along with associated Energy Audits which are required under article 8 of the Energy Efficiency Directive. Indeed BPMA Chaired the ISO Committee which has published the ISO14414 standard – the international standard for conducting a pump system audit. Furthermore, the BPMA has developed and launched its Certified Pump System Auditor scheme (CPSA) – a new qualification (based on ISO14414) designed to help improve the levels of professionalism in the sector by creating a universally recognized and respected industry qualification for individuals assessing the performance of a pumping system.

The drive for improved pump efficiency The BPMA has always pioneered progressive initiatives which benefit industry, and has consistently put itself at the centre of the drive for improved efficiencies across UK industry, particularly those sectors synonymous with pumps and pump systems.

As such, the BPMA continues to play a crucial role in ensuring that the UK Pump industry remains a key driver in delivering improved energy efficiencies for UK industry. ■

BPMA Activity Highlights 2015/16 BPMA keeps up the pressure for action on noncompliant pump imports

BPMA Launches New Website

Representatives of both the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) and Europump met with senior executives of the National Measurement Regulatory Office (NMRO) in December 2015, to again press home the need for action in relation to the correct application of the ErP Directive (EU Energy Related Products Directive).

British Pump Manufacturers Association was delighted to announce the launch of its new website in February 2016 – www.bpma.org.uk.

Market Surveillance is a key element of a fair and efficient EU internal market as it has a role to ensure that products placed on the community market comply with EU regulations and do not pose any safety and environmental threats for users and the public at large. This should ensure a level playing field and fair competition on the market as well as safeguarding the coherence of the European regulatory framework, the consistency of which depends on effective enforcement. However, there continues to be evidence of, as well as major concerns regarding, the presence of illegal pump imports entering the UK from other countries, especially Asia, that do not meet the strict demands of the ErP Directive. As such and as previously advised, the BPMA continued to press the NMRO in their role of UK Market Surveillance Authority to take appropriate action. Designed ‘from the ground up’, the new site had undergone much more than a cosmetic facelift, it had been configured to be more user-friendly with many new features being added, as well as a major overhaul of existing features.

The meeting in December was convened to agree a shared understanding of the application of Commission Regulation 641/2009/EC and the amendment 622/2012/EC with regards to eco-design requirements for circulator pumps and Market Surveillance within the UK.

Members will enjoy easier access to detailed technical information via the site, and through the new Members List, which now includes company logos, they will have greater brand promotion and improved access to their own websites.

From the detailed presentations given, and the open discussions that followed, it was agreed by all parties that there was now a clear understanding of what constitutes standalone and integrated circulators. Furthermore it was also agreed that the majority of products identified by the BPMA were not integrated and subsequently could be deemed to be in scope and subsequently did not meet the current regulation, at least from the information shown on the identified companies’ websites.

The ‘pump search’ facility, which from an end-users’ perspective has always been a significant and acutely useful feature, is now far easier to navigate. The adoption of a simple drop down menu enables an end user to readily find who, within the BPMA membership, makes a certain type of product. A unique service offering, this feature which will continue to help engineers across industry undertake their pump selection tasks, in a quick and easy fashion. ■

As a result NMRO has submitted the following proposed course of action, to remedy the issue of any non-compliant pumps on the UK market, based on what is reasonable to all parties, and also taking into account its available resource.

New Course launched by BPMA in March 2016 – City & Guilds BPMA Competency Electrical Course (3 Day)

January 2016 We will broadly target the market via letter, informing the businesses of the UK’s policy decision and that the standalone pumps discussed are in scope and that they should not be sold on in the EU. As discussed, we are part of the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills and therefore need to be as reasonable as possible with regulated entities. Within these letters we propose to give a three month period for the industry to ensure they are no longer placing these pumps on the market. The aim here is to give industry every opportunity to bring their range into compliance.

It is usual in many industries to find that companies have radically streamlined their maintenance and technical workforce departments. This puts pressure on company managers to use non-electrical personnel for routine electrical duties. Accordingly a three day course was specifically designed to assist non-electrical employees to prepare themselves for cross trade working, and to help companies comply with the requirements of current legislation regarding the use of such people for minor electrical tasks.

April 2016 Here we will begin a project initiated by my team who are responsible for investigations and enforcement. This will involve further industry engagement, investigation of pumps where there are suspicions of non-compliance and removing pumps from the market that are found to be non-compliant. Again, the target is to bring a level playing field for business by achieving compliance, but we have sanctions available to us where necessary and proportionate.

Course Objectives: After completing the course, students should be able to:

Market surveillance is an important issue and we need a plan to protect our industries, reputations and borders from the unscrupulous exploitation of companies to whom standards are irrelevant. The BPMA is committed to this task and as such the proposal by NMRO was a welcomed step in the right direction. ■

BPMA Activity Highlights 2015/16 Waste electrical and electronic equipment directive developments

New Course launched by BPMA in March 2016 continued from page 6

In August 2018 the WEEE2 Directive will enter into force in the UK. Under the existing WEEE Directive in the UK it has been fortunate that other than Garden Pumps no other pumps have been included in scope. This first revision of the Directive has now brought in many products that were previously out of scope.

Who should attend: The course is primarily aimed at mechanical or un-skilled tradespersons that are preparing themselves for work upon electrical systems. The course may be of great benefit to companies that intend to employ non-electrical personnel to perform routine electrical duties, such as, lamp replacement or portable appliance testing etc.

To try and clarify if pumps will be in scope of WEEE2 the BPMA met with the UK government, BIS (Business Innovation & Skills) in the spring of 2016 who unfortunately advised the BPMA that they were overwhelmed with the amount of items that require clarification. To assist in making a decision in the UK for the Pump Industry they requested that the BPMA write its own position paper after assessing all the Commission Guidance documents for both domestic and non-domestic pumps. If BIS agree with the BPMA document then that will position for pumps in the UK .

Topics Covered: •

Health and Safety legislation (related to electricity in the workplace)

Basic electrical principles

Electrical power and units of measurement

Safe isolation of electrical circuits

Safe working practices

Electrical test instrumentation

Conventional circuit layout

Basic first aid (related to electrical hazards)

Electrical diagrams

Cable and wiring system

This gives the BPMA and its members an opportunity to control the situation on WEEE2. Even if the UK population agree to leave the European Union on the 23rd June 2016 it will be many years before the existing European laws are repealed, on this basis it has been decided to form a new BPMA working group to write the WEEE2 position paper for the pump industry.

The course was well received by BPMA members and will be presented again later in 2016. ■

The first meeting of this working group will take place in July. ■

BPMA Activity Highlights 2015/16 ESOS in terms of energy audits, and which by definition are heavy pump users - were looking to manufacturers and suppliers of pumps and related technologies for energy reduction solutions. This event therefore offerd an ideal environment at which to launch and promote this important reference material.

BRDO and NMRO combine to simplify regulation for British business BRDO and NMRO brought together into a single BIS directorate from 1 April 2016

Lord Redesdale, CEO of the EMA commented “The BPMA’s attendance at EMEX shows the importance of pumps in the list of energy saving devices our members can use to reduce their companies energy use. The payback on pumps is one of the quickest wins for Energy Managers, so it is somewhat surprising how often this simple measure is overlooked. The EMA, in association with the BPMA, is producing this buyers guide to help Energy Managers, not only assess the savings they could make on pumps, but also which questions they should ask to make sure the system they install is the best match for their needs.”

The Better Regulation Delivery Office (BRDO) and National Measurement and Regulation Office (NMRO) were brought together into a single BIS directorate from 1 April 2016 to focus on regulation and enforcement. BRDO were previously responsible for improving the way in which local and national regulators enforce regulations, saving money for business and taxpayers. NMRO operated as an Executive Agency within BIS, sponsored by BRDO, aiming to simplify technical regulation for the benefit of UK businesses. The new Regulatory Delivery directorate is led by BRDO Director, Graham Russell and reports to Small Business, Industry and Enterprise Minister, Anna Soubry. The directorate will work to ensure that the way regulation is enforced is proportionate and risk based. It will deliver existing functions such as Primary Authority, legal metrology and hallmarking policy, technical regulation and enforcement work.

Steve Schofield, Director of BPMA added “We are thrilled to be working with EMA on this initiative as it further demonstrates our commitment to the drive for improved energy efficiencies across all pump systems, and to ensuring that all those individuals with responsibility for energy use reduction, have a core understanding of the impact that pumps can have on a company’s overall energy consumption.

BIS Permanent Secretary, Martin Donnelly, said:

“This undertaking also serves to put BPMA member companies, their products, their engineering skills and their business credentials at the heart of good energy efficiency practice. In essence, if energy managers need help and guidance with their pump systems, this Buyers Guide and the wider BPMA membership will provide that support.” ■

“Combining NMRO and BRDO will bring together policy expertise and practical experience. This will ensure that government policy is effectively delivered in ways that reduce burdens on business, save public money and properly protect people and communities.” The director of the new Regulatory Delivery directorate, Graham Russell, said:

Buy with confidence from a BPMA member

“This is an exciting opportunity to raise standards of protection for vulnerable people and encourage businesses to grow, by improving the way we regulate in the UK. Combining two organisations is challenging but I know that we are committed to working well together, using fewer resources for better outcomes.”

In January 2016 BPMA adopted a ‘Buy with confidence from a BPMA Member’ ethos based on the BPMA’s Code of Conduct, which applies to each member company. The BPMA seeks to represent Members that demonstrate the highest degree of professionalism, expertise and ethical standards in every aspect of their operations, including the safety, reliability, quality and support of their products, as well as the competence of their employees and representatives.

Martin Donnelly has written to all BRDO and NMRO staff about the decision to combine the two offices into one Regulatory Delivery directorate. Staff will continue to be supported by senior leaders and line managers during the transition. ■

Each Member is therefore expected to abide by this Code of Conduct, which is designed to assure users, specifiers and purchasers of pumping equipment that they can ‘Buy with confidence’ from a BPMA Member.

BPMA & EMA to develop better pump understanding

A comprehensive range of undertakings form the Code of Conduct, the full details of which can be found on the BPMA website – www.bpma.org.uk, but in essence they cover the following key areas:

In the Autumn of 2015 BPMA were delighted to work with the Energy Managers Association (EMA) on the production of a ‘buyers guide’ specifically formulated for Energy Managers, Facilities Managers, Estate Managers and Procurement Teams. It is well documented, and universally understood, that pumps and their associated systems are huge consumers of electrical energy. So with the drive for improved energy efficiency across all industry sectors, as demanded by the ‘Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme’ it is essential that this influential group of ‘non-pump experts’ gain a good understanding of the potential energy savings that are available within their respective pump systems. The guide will ensure that the pump industry, and specifically BPMA member companies, are well represented when energy reduction strategies are identified and implemented, as part of company-wide energy audits. It was launched at the EMA’s annual event EMEX (Energy Management Exhibition) which took place on the 11th and 12th November at ExCeL, London.

BPMA Activity Highlights 2015/16 advantage is that the manufacturer will only have to describe and complete a product once to serve all BIM software systems and users.

ATEX: EC Guidance on the transition in April 2016 from ATEX Directive 94/9/EC to Directive 2014/34/EU

It was agreed that the master template should be owned by CIBSE, so there could be no commercial interest in its curation. All completed Product Data Templates will then be owned by the respective Pump Manufacturers. Any changes to the template will need to be agreed and approved by the pump industry across Europe and dissemination of any revised version to members will be via National Associations such as BPMA.

An EC Guidance document on the transition from the ATEX Directive 94/9/EC to Directive 2014/34/EU was made available by BPMA. The new Directive does not bring about any changes as regards the scope, essential health and safety requirements and conformity assessment procedures. This document consists of a detailed FAQ section covering both horizontal questions (in line with the latest Blue Guide text) and sectorial ones (applicable to ATEX only)

The purpose of this template will be to standardise the data required for a product category. As such, it is believed that this PDT for pumps will meet the requirements of the Building Services and MEPH (Mechanical, Electrical & Public Health) sectors across the European Union.

The key changes reflect the alignment with the New Legislative Framework (NFL) and mainly concern: •

definitions (horizontal additions from the NLF)

more detailed information about the obligations of economic operators

more detailed requirements for notified bodies

updated references (presumption of conformity, CE marking)

simplified procedures for market surveillance

taking the contents and model of Declaration of Conformity (DoC) from the NLF

taking validity conditions for EU type-examination certificate from the NLF

practical transitional arrangements given for the DoC and the Directive numbering that needs to be stated (in accordance with the Blue Guide interpretation)

BPMA President Peter Reynolds Receives Medal of Honour 25 years of exceptional achievements were acknowledged in April 2016, when Peter was awarded The Diploma of the Danish Export Association and HRH Prince Henrik’s Medal of Honour at the Danish Embassy. The event was hosted by the Danish ambassador to the UK, Claus Grube and the queen of Denmark, Margrethe II, presented Peter with his awards.

To ensure that the transition to the new Directive is not too abrupt, the manufacturers are given the flexibility to indicate already today the following statement, as long as their product declares conformity with the Directive in force. This transitional arrangement can be applied to other NLFDirectives only too:

Behind this recognition lies Peter’s long and impressive career with Grundfos that has culminated in his leadership role as Managing Director that he has now held for ten years.

“The object of the declaration described above is in conformity with the relevant Union harmonization legislation: Directive 94/9/EC (until April 19th, 2016) and Directive 2014/34/EU (from April 20th, 2016)” Please note that this version of the Guidance is preliminary, due the ongoing drafting of the ATEX Guidelines and the pending publication of the Blue Guide. ■

After receiving the awards, Peter said “I feel very Claus Grube and the queen of proud to receive such a Denmark, Margrethe II, presented recognition,” while Group Peter with his awards. Executive Vice President Poul Due Jensen added his words to underline Peter Reynolds’ importance in shaping Grundfos’ success in the UK “In his 25 years, Peter has managed to forge deep and loyal relations with all customers and partners in our value chain. This has helped consolidate Grundfos’ leading position in the British market,” he said.

Industry Embraces BIM In November 2015 BPMA provided clarification on conformity to Building Information Modelling Level 2 (BIM). Although the pump sector had for some time recognised the need to fulfil its commitments to BIM, there had been many different interpretations as to how this might be achieved. Recognising the confusion that seemed to prevail across the sector, and in direct response to the concerns of its members, the BPMA convened a meeting to address the issue. But given the important work that the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) had already been conducting in this area, and acknowledging its advisory role to UK government, the BPMA solicited its help and guidance.

The Diploma and Medal are awarded in recognition of an outstanding effort in promoting and marketing Danish products and services abroad. ■

The initial UK meeting led to further meetings across Europe, with CIBSE and many prominent pump manufacturers in attendance. The result of these meetings was to develop a Product Data Template (PDT) which could then be populated by any pump company. By completing the PDT for their products, manufacturers can effectively produce an ‘electronic catalogue’, directly usable in Level 2 BIM.

BPMA MEMBERSHIP – an investment, not a cost!

The templates are written in Excel, so manufacturers will not need much BIM ‘know how’ to be involved. Another clear

The BPMA continues to provide an exclusive service to members in regard to the monitoring of European Directives and Legislation affecting the pump industry. The February 2016 “Directives Update” follows:

PRESSURE EQUIPMENT DIRECTIVE

European Directives

97/23/EC (no significant change since last Directives update) Europump Position paper have now been modified to insert the new Machinery Directive and Atex numbers and are available on the Europump website http://www.europump.org/

MACHINERY DIRECTIVE Old (98/37/EC) New 2006/42/EC

The 5th annual meeting of the EU-China working group on pressure equipment took place in November in Brussels. The main objective of this EU-China Regulatory Dialogue is to ensure regulatory convergence between the EU and China in the long term, with a view to eliminating obstacles to trade and investment.

The latest meeting of the EC Machinery Working Group was held in Brussels on 25 November. On horizontal issues, the Commission provided further information on the upcoming study on the evaluation of the Machinery Directive. The study will be launched in January 2016 and will run for 17 months. The objective of this study is, on the one hand, to perform a fitness check of the Machinery Directive and, on the other hand, to assess whether the current legislation needs to be revised in order to improve it. Once the study is completed, the impact assessment will be initiated and its results will feed into the possible revision of the MD. The Commission has confirmed that, should a full revision process be carried out, it will not be as revolutionary as the one for the current Directive. However, it is likely that the new legislation will be a Regulation rather than a Directive.

Points of discussion included the follow-up of the exchange of legislation and supporting documents agreed in previous meetings (Licensing guide; Office CSEI in Europe; Comparison of standards); an introduction of regulatory developments (EU side: TPED, new legislative framework package,…China side: WTO matters (boilers: BT/WTO/CHN/407); an exchange of view on market surveillance/export control; cooperation at ISO level; energy efficiency (Boiler); and a working plan for 2009. As pumps are excluded within Europe the BPMA through Europump and Orgalime will attempt to ensure the same position is taken in China.

The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) Institute for Energy and Transport is also carrying out a study on behalf of DG GROW to assess the impact of a possible extension of the scope of the Machinery, Pressure Equipment and ATEX Directives regarding equipment intended for use in the offshore oil and gas industry. The Commission is now gathering stakeholders’ input via an online “Survey on Offshore Oil and Gas Equipment 2015 – Cost of compliance with EU Product Safety Legislation”. This consultation will run until 19 September 2015. The results of the study are to be published in early 2016.

PED Directive 97/23/EC, and reorganisation of the working group and its chairmanship. The PED is expected to be revised during 2012, so the preparation of the revision should start in 2009. This potential revision has been subject to discussions and consultations by the Commission over the past few months. There will therefore be no integration of the Simple Pressure Vessels Directive 87/404/EEC (SPVD), the Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EC (PED) and the Transportable Pressure Equipment Directive 99/36/EC (TPED) at this point in time, as previously foreseen by the Commission.

The new Directive 2006/42/EC came into effect as from 29 December 2009. The BPMA have now issued useful information on the requirements of the New Machinery Directive and also captive screws for guards. To comply fully with the new directive members should work to the revised text of standard EN 809 1998 +A1:2009 which was published by BSi February 2010. A preliminary version of the proposed revision of the existing Europump Guideline has now been Circulated (3 pages). This ensures that the pump industry fully understand its obligations.

ATEX (EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES) old 94/9/EC new 2014/34/EU (After 2016) A new 23 page EC Guidance document on the transition from the ATEX Directive 94/9/EC to Directive 2014/34/EU is now available from S. Schofield. This document consists of a detailed FAQ section covering both horizontal questions (in line with the latest Blue Guide text) and sectorial ones (applicable to ATEX only)

The Regulatory Committee on Machinery endorsed the second edition of the guide on the Machinery directive on 2 June 2010. This second edition covers all annexes and is available in English on the Commission website. It will be translated into all EU languages and these translations should be made available by the end of 2010.

The key changes reflect the alignment with the New Legislative Framework (NFL) and mainly concern: •

definitions (horizontal additions from the NLF)

more detailed information about the obligations of economic operators

CEN TC 197 Previously issued a Resolution C3/2007 which concerns the result of a questionnaires on drafts and standards under the New Machinery Directive.

more detailed requirements for notified bodies

The Standards which required work are EN 809, EN13951, EN12162, EN ISO 20361, EN13386, EN1829-1 and 2. This work is now completed.

updated references (presumption of conformity, CE marking)

simplified procedures for market surveillance

taking the contents and model of Declaration of Conformity (DoC) from the NLF

taking validity conditions for EU type-examination certificate from the NLF

practical transitional arrangements given for the DoC and the Directive numbering that needs to be stated (in accordance with the Blue Guide interpretation)

continued from previous page

The Europump Atex Guideline is available reflects recent changes.

“The object of the declaration described above is in conformity with the relevant Union harmonization legislation: Directive 94/9/EC (until April 19th, 2016) and Directive 2014/34/EU (from April 20th, 2016)”

To reiterate the document has now been split into two parts.

Directive 2014/34/EU on equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres (ATEX), as aligned with the New Legislative Framework (NLF), was published in the EU Official Journal on 29 March 2014. Member States need to transpose this directive into national legislation by 19 April 2016.

Part 1 being the background to the directive and will be useful to companies moving into Atex applications.

Part 2 will be more specific to particular areas that have affected the pump industry since the Directive came into force in July 2003. Modifications are ongoing to this guideline in particular to certain wording in part 7 (mechanical seals) and new directive number references.

The European Guidelines on the application of Directive 94/9/EC are available.

On 14 March 2014, a new list of harmonised standards in the framework of the implementation of the ATEX Directive was published in the EU Official Journal (OJEU 14.03.2014 C76/30).

Finally, new references of harmonized standards (consolidated list) under the ATEX Directive have been published in the Official Journal. These are available on the Commission website.

You will find the text in the language version of the member states at: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legalcontent/EN/TXT/?uri=uriserv:OJ.L_.2014.096.01.0309.01.ENG and more information can be found in the following days at: http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/sectors/mechanical/atex/index _en.htm

The Lisbon Treaty and New Legislative Framework will cause substantial changes to manufacturers in the future. Due to the Lisbon Treaty Articles will change from 95 to 114 for manufacturers and 137 to 153 for end users. The New legislative framework will affect the declaration of conformity, documentation and the marking of products. The marking of electric products will change mid 2012 and are a result of new IEC standards being produced in particular IEC 60079 which introduces equipment in Group III valid for electrical equipment to be used in dust explosive areas. Also introduces classes of dust. For now it is believed there will be

The alignment of the Directive on equipment and protective systems for potentially explosive atmospheres (ATEX 94/9/EC) with the New Legislative Framework (Regulation 765/2008) calls for an update of the guidelines on the measures manufacturers should take in the event of publication of a new edition of a harmonised standard relevant to their products. These are not legally binding guidelines, but merely

BPMA Activity Highlights 2015/16 EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility DIRECTIVE) 89/336/EEC Old 2004/108/EC new 2014/30/EU after 2016 (no significant change since last Directives update)

continued from previous page

no change in marking of mechanical equipment. Members should start checking that electrical suppliers are working to IEC 60079.

A new list of harmonised standards in the framework of the implementation of the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC was published in the EU Official Journal on 16 January 2015 (OJEU 16.01.2015 C 14/1). Following the new Electro Magnetic Compatibility Directive 2014/30/EU aligned with the NLF Decision 768/2008, Orgalime made a comparison between the old directive 2004/108/EC and the new one. The new directive makes reference to electromagnetic compatibility ‘apparatus’ instead of ‘product’ which was used in directive 2004/108/EC. No substantial changes to the technical provisions have been identified, but in the new text market surveillance procedures are both simplified and clearer.

There are also discussions taking place regarding the development of future international standards to ensure mechanical equipment can be operated around the world in explosive environments, however the consequence of such a standard could be 3 party inspection of manufactured mechanical goods. Other changes to standards include; EN13463 to IEC 80079 EN13463-1 to IEC 80079-36 EN13463 (others) to IEC 80079-37

Directive 2014/30/EU on electromagnetic compatibility (EMCD) as aligned with the New Legislative Framework (NLF) was published in the EU Official Journal on 29 March 2014. Member States need to transpose the new directive into their national law by 19 April 2016.

BPMA members who wish to receive a copies of the Europump revised Guideline should contact S Schofield at the BPMA.

LOW VOLTAGE DIRECTIVE Old 2006 /95/ EC new 2014 /35/EU after 2016

On the alignment of the EMCD 2004/108/EC with the New Legislative Framework,. Transposition into national law will then last 2 years before application.

Directive 2014/35/EU on electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits (LVD) as aligned with the New Legislative Framework (NLF) was published in the EU Official Journal on 29 March 2014. The Member States need to transpose the new directive into national legislation by 19 April 2016.

On the directive’s applications, Eurelectric and ESMIG have recently raised concerns on the negative impact of IEC recommendations on the communication of smart meters. A draft Application guide to European Standard EN 50160 on “voltage characteristics of electricity supplied by public distribution systems” is currently being adopted by CENELEC.

The latest Commission LVD Working Party meeting took place on 16 November 2015, during which the first draft of the revised LVD Guidelines was presented and discussed. This draft can be requested from the secretariat. It is clarified that the scope, general objectives and essential requirements laid down in the current directive have not been modified in the new Directive 2014/35/EU. The LVD WP is asked to provide written comments on the first draft by the end of January 2016. A draft second version is expected to become available in February.

A CENELEC Study Report published in May 2013 on “Electromagnetic Interference between Electrical Equipment/Systems in the frequency range below 150 kHz” confirms that much electrical equipment which shows high emissions in this frequency range can potentially cause electromagnetic interference with other electrical equipment. Active Infeed Converters (AICs) are an example of such equipment with high emissions. The Study Report indicates that the increasing application of technologies and systems with EMI potential requires a general solution, and industry agrees that a horizontal discussion is needed.

The next meeting of the LVD WP is scheduled to take place on 21 March 2016.

As a reminder, 9 Directives with the New Legislative Framework which contains specific comments relating to the EMCD 2004/108/EC are ongoing.

The European Commission has now published the updated guidance document on the Low Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC. The amendments to the current guide deal with the codification of the previous Directive 73/23/EEC and the interface with the “new” Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. The guidance document highlights the editorial corrigendum to Directive 1993/68/EC that clarifies Article 10 (1) regarding the placing of the CE marking and also touches on the interface with the General Product Safety Directive 2001/95/EC, reflecting guidance issued by EC DG Health & Consumer Protection.

In view of the specific objective of the Directive (to guarantee the electromagnetic compatibility of electrical apparatus and installations by imitating disturbances, not protecting the health and safety of users), the concepts of “risk” and “serious risk” will be clarified. The language of the safeguard clause has been adapted to fit the specific objective of the Directive. A full alignment with the provisions on notified bodies is envisaged, but the existing version of the modules should be kept.

To reconfirm that any reference to the LOW VOLTAGE DIRECTIVE should be to – 2006/95/EC no reference to the old numbers should made.

An updated list of harmonised standards was published in the OJEU.

At a recent Europump meeting a discussion took place on if domestic pumps should comply to both the Machinery Directive and Low Voltage Directive. Most of these currently work to the EN 60335 series of standards.

The European Commission has finally published the implementation guidelines of the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC on its website.

The conclusion was that the Declaration of conformity for these products should include both Directives.

No reference to the old number should be made in correspondence, paperwork and certification.

BPMA Activity Highlights 2015/16 many working processes will be disturbed by the application of this physical agents directive, and it may even render the use of some machines or processes impossible e.g. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners, spot and seam welding.

continued from previous page

Electro Magnetic Fields Directive (EMFD) Directive 2013/35/EU (New Number) (no significant change since last Directives update)

Construction Products Regulation (CPR) – Revision New harmonised standards in the framework of the implementation of the Construction Products Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 were published in the EU Official Journal on 13 November (OJEU 13.11.2015 C 378/4; C 378/6).

As a reminder, Member States have until 1 July 2016 to transpose Directive 2013/35/EU on the minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to the risks arising from physical agents (electromagnetic fields).

As part of the EU fitness check on the construction sector, the second supporting study, which will be launched in December 2015, focuses on the cumulative impacts on the construction sector of EU environmental and health & safety legislation over the 2004-2014 period. As a reminder, the first fitness check study covers EU legislation on the Internal Market and Energy Efficiency impacting on the construction sector and construction-related professional services.

On 16 April the public consultation launched by the European Commission and the Scientific Committee on Emerging Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) on a preliminary opinion on “Potential health effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF)” was closed. The Opinion aims at updating the previous documents issued by the SCENIHR in 2009. The public consultation was accompanied by a public hearing (on 27 March) and a workshop (on 28 March).

The Commission plans to launch the public consultation between December 2015 and February 2016, and organise a stakeholder workshop in May 2016 with the aim of presenting the conclusions of both fitness check studies. The final reports should then be published in June 2016.

As a reminder, Member States have until 1 July 2016 to implement the directive on the minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to electromagnetic fields (Directive 2013/35/EU of 26 June 2013).

On 1 July 2013, the Construction Products Regulation No 305/2011 entered into force.

On 29 June, the new Directive 2013/35/EU on the minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to the risks arising from physical agents (electromagnetic fields) was published on the EU Official Journal (L179). It entered into force immediately, giving Member States until 1 July 2016 to transpose it into national law. It repeals Directive 2004/40/EC (which never entered into force).

It is the belief of the Pump Industry that pumps are excluded from this Directive as they need to comply to more appropriate Directives such as Machinery, Atex, Low Voltage etc.

As a reminder, the new Directive covers all sectors but mainly concerns workers exposed to a level of risk. It incorporates new international exposure limits, based on guidelines of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiations Protection (ICNIRP). The legislation obliges employers to assess the risks of exposure to electromagnetic fields and to take the necessary measures to reduce them, for example by replacing equipment or using interlocks or shielding mechanisms.

M Manuf facturers off Re Recipr i ocating i P Pumps

The new Directive addresses the short-term direct biophysical effects (e.g. tissue heating, stimulation of muscles, nerves or sensory organs) and indirect biophysical effects (e.g. interference with medical electronic equipment such as cardiac pacemakers). The adoption of the final text by the European Parliament’s plenary is scheduled for May/June 2013. The agreed text will also be formally adopted by the Council. The Directive should be transposed into national law by all Member States by July 2016 at the latest. The directive stipulates an obligation for employers to carry out risk assessments and, if necessary, measure or calculate the levels of electromagnetic fields to which workers are exposed. Employers must ensure that the exposure of workers is compliant with a series of exposure limit values regarding thermal and non-thermal effects of electromagnetic fields both on health and senses, take corrective measures if such values are exceeded, and take measures aimed at avoiding or reducing risks to a minimum. Exposure limit values are indicated in the annexes to the directive.

As a reminder, and despite the lobbying efforts developed at the time of discussion, this directive sets exposure limit values and action values, and defines employers’ obligations to determine the exposure and assess the associated risks. The manufacturers and employers organisations insist that

BPMA Activity Highlights 2015/16 On 8 December, the second stakeholder workshop on the review of the Drinking Water Directive (DWD) was organised by European Commission DG Environment to enable a discussion on the basis of the final draft of the study report (published 24 November 2015) by the Ecorys-led consortium.

continued from previous page

Unfortunately the revision of a series of Standards EN 12050 parts 1 to 4 has led to an Annex ZA being introduced which Subsequently calls for the CE marking of pump products to the CPR.

In general, DWD provisions are found to be coherent. The two aspects that are most acknowledged as improved are clarifications regarding Article 10 (guidance on implementation) and the need for more consistent and solid Member States’ monitoring reports, to aid the European Commission in evaluation.

However members of Europump have now created position paper to assist the pump industry with exclusion to this directive, copies are available from SJS.

At various points the discussion touched upon materials in contact with drinking water. DG Environment confirmed it has launched an additional study on such materials that will last a few months.

In short, products covered by EN 1090-1 need to be CEmarked only if they satisfy the following requirements: they are defined as construction products in line with Article 2(1) of Regulation 305/2011, they are intended to be used in works (buildings, civil engineering works), they are permanently integrated in the building and fulfil a structural function together with the building, they are not covered by another harmonised standard. The affixing of the CE-marking on fabricated structural steelwork has been obligatory since 1 July 2014.

In January 2016 the consultant will release his final study report. Around February 2016 the European Commission will issue a staff working document on the basis of which the EC will define internally its general direction. In May 2016 the Commission will publish an inception impact assessment or roadmap. The stakeholder consultation addressing parameters for compliance will take place no earlier than September 2016.

As a reminder, regarding the Council of European Producers of Materials for Construction (CEPMC) guide on the Construction Products Regulation No 305/2011 (CPR), a meeting took place on 9 May in the CEPMC premises in order to comment and finally validate the draft CEPMC. Although Orgalime participated in the elaboration of certain chapters, the general feeling in reading the guide led to an impression of confusion (some chapters are too long, others are not relevant to the manufacturers, some clear mistakes were included). Therefore, Orgalime decided to draw up its own guide of interpretation.

In consultation with the Committee on Standards, DG Growth decided to withdraw the standardisation request M/136 and its revisions concerning construction products in contact with drinking water (CPDW). A European industry consortium was specifically created to deliver a harmonised test method, a unique test report and mutual recognition of product approvals. The main goal of request M/136 is to harmonise national technical approaches to implement the Drinking Water Directive for CPDW. Standardisation work under M/136 has been underway for almost 13 years. Although CEN has completed its work on horizontal testing standards, no harmonised product standards have been developed and there has been an ongoing lack of regulatory guidance to continue the standardisation work. For this reason, the Commission took the decision to withdraw the request M/136.

The British Construction Products’ Regulation Guide published by the British Association for Construction Products is available from S. Schofield. The new Construction Products Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 (repealing Council Directive 89/106/EEC) was published in the OJEU (all language versions) on 4 April 2011. It entered into force on 24 April 2011, and is directly applicable in the Member States. However, most of the provisions (Articles 3 to 28, 36 to 38, 56 to 63, 65 and 66, and Annexes I, II, III and V) will apply from 1 July 2013, and transitional provisions are foreseen under article 66.

The ad hoc Industry Consortium for Products in Contact with Drinking Water (ICPCDW) believes that this deletion of M/136 should be conditional upon the availability of a realistic harmonised scheme, worked out in close consultation with European industry and which can be quickly and effectively introduced. A meeting of the ICPCDW is to be held in September/October 2015 in Brussels.

The European Commission should now embark on the drafting of a guideline, and CEPMC (construction products association) will actively contribute to it.

Europump has now completed its work on a Position paper and also a Guideline to assist members in selling their product on drinking water across all member states. This document was circulated to members in June however further copies are available from S Schofield.

As a reminder the Commission have proposed this new text to remove the existing Directive with regulation. This could affect the pump industry has it is currently believed within Europump that pumps are not part of the Construction Products Directive. The BPMA and Europump will monitor this position closely, unfortunately for now the French have chose to work to the CPR whilst the UK, Germany and Italy are saying pumps are excluded.

The 4MS – soon to be 5MS with Portugal - published a new document on their website in the summer: a compilation of the positive lists of substances used for organic materials acceptance for contact with drinking water. This spreadsheet is not yet a harmonised list, but clearly shows what is authorised in France, Germany and the Netherlands (the UK does not use such positive lists). An update of the positive list of metallic alloys is still awaited.

DRINKING WATER DIRECTIVE 99/83/EC On 6 October 2015 the technical annexes II and III (parameters of hazardous substances) of Directive 98/83/EC on the quality of water intended for human consumption were amended to reflect technological progress. The new provisions entered into force on 27 October 2015. This amendment of the Drinking Water Directive is a response to a European Citizens’ Initiative and backing of the European Parliament for better monitoring of drinking water. It must be transposed into national legislation by Member States within 24 months.

Developments to date

In a letter of March 2009 the Commission stated that the EAS had been cancelled

The Commission confirmed that the EAS was not proceeding. The CPD continued to offer a framework for harmonization of practice at the European level, but Mandate M136 should be revised.


BPMA Activity Highlights 2015/16 The Goal

continued from previous page

The CPD harmonization and MS voluntary cooperation whilst providing real benefits, will not themselves achieve common practice across Europe. Most stakeholders support the introduction of a single scheme.

The use of the Provisions of the CPD The construction products directive does not introduces new practices, it simply identifies common elements such as test methods to be used in conjunction with national arrangements.

During the recent Europump meetings in September 2011 it was reported by Profluid (French Association) that the Goal was to specify what test will be required so CE Marking could be placed on the products. The response from members of the group was they believed it would not be possible to CE products to the Drinking water directive and acceptance levels would stay at national level. It was agreed to contact the CEN Rappoteur Bill Harper for clarification on this issue.

There are however disadvantages: •

It covers only national regulations

•

It does not cover all products

•

It does not eliminate differences in national schemes and acceptance levels are not laid down.

Below please find the response from Bill Harper: As regards CE Marking, it is used with products to signify compliance with notified national regulations – in this case regulations covering the acceptance of products in contact with drinking water. The CE Marking can be applied in those countries (the 4MS and a few others) that have such regulations. It is not relevant in countries (the majority) that do not have (formal) regulations. The problem is that since national regulations vary, the CE Marking relevant to where the product is placed on the market is likely to be applicable only to that single country. There will be some benefit from the use of common test methods (and the results should accepted in different countries), but The CE Marking will not be a “universal passport� across all MS.

The 4 MS Initiative Faced with no EAS and limited benefits from the CPD the 4 member states (D, F, NL, UK) committed themselves to try to gain the advantages offered by the EAS by adopting common practices in their four countries. It is believed that this activity will offer wider benefits. Other member states could voluntarily adopt the practice being developed. The common practices will be offered to the commission as a possible basis for the regulatory guidance to CEN under M136. It is now reported that: •

Some test methods are accepted by the commission

•

Further dialogue is taking place

•

Metallic products assessment practices now largely agreed with the commission and industry.

New Legislative Framework (NLF) A latest version of the Blue Guide was informally distributed to relevant stakeholders in October 2015. This document is available from S. Schofield.

BPMA Activity Highlights 2015/16 been raised with the National Measurements office in October 2013.

continued from previous page

A recent letter circulated to BPMA members by the NMO advised:

The latest Blue Guide provides further clarification about the transitional arrangements for the EU Declaration of Conformity. In other words, in the event that products comply with the requirements of both the old and aligned directives, economic operators can refer to the two directives on the DoC provided that they specify the corresponding dates of implementation for each directive. A model sentence suggested by the Commission is the following: “The object of the declaration described above is in conformity with the relevant Union harmonisation legislation: Directive 2004/108/EC (until 19 April 2016) and Directive 2014/30/EU (from 20 April 2016).”

37 models of circulator were purchased across the EU and assessed in laboratories in Denmark and Hungary. All of the products purchased based on risk modelling and information provided by industry including BPMA.

Compliance rate of 91% with the Ecodesign of Circulators Regulation (No 641/2009) Such a high compliance rate is extremely represents what NMO believe to be an industry fully engaged with legislative obligations.

Unfortunately this does not appear to represent what is actually happening across the UK. The BPMA have had discussions with the two major suppliers in the market who stress that this is seriously affecting their business to the extent that it could start reflecting on UK jobs. BPMA to continue monitoring this item.

On 29 March, the eight remaining directives in the NLF Alignment Package (including ATEX, LVD, SPVD, EMCD, MID) were published in the EU Official Journal (OJEU 29.03.2014 L96).

The Council has decided to reopen the Consumer Product Safety Regulation (CPSR) at the working group level. As regards the Market Surveillance of Products Regulation (MSPR), the Council has requested the Commission to conduct a study on the pros and cons of CPSR Article 7 (marking of origin), and other related aspects, such as safety, traceability. Little progress on the negotiations is expected before the end of the year, even though the Package has been included in the Italian Presidency’s Programme, as one of the key policy priorities.

These directives entered into force on 18 April 2014 and will apply as of 20 April 2016 (the deadline for transposition into national legislation is 19 April 2016). The Commission finally published the 2014 edition of the ‘Blue Guide’ on the implementation of EU product rules on 31 March. The Guide attempts to explain in detail the different aspects of the New Legislative Framework in order to facilitate a better understanding of EU product rules and ensure their application in a coherent and uniform manner across different sectors, so that the public interest (health and safety, environmental and public security) is effectively safeguarded. The Guide is addressed to Member States and stakeholders such as trade and consumer associations, standardisation bodies, manufacturers, importers, distributors, conformity assessment bodies and trade unions, who need to be aware of the provisions designed to ensure the free movement of products within the EU.

The proposed Regulation on consumer product safety (CPSR) (COM(2013)78), further amendments to the Commission proposal were published in mid-September 2013 (CPSR; MSPR. In its position on the draft report on the CPSR (consumer product safety regulation), Orgalime opposes unclear requirements regarding consumer safety for manufacturers and market surveillance authorities, and requests clearer rules for assessing the safety of products and the avoidance of administrative burdens which do not improve safety. It opposes the addition of new markings which are ineffective, confusing and costly, referring in particular to the Rapporteur’s suggestion for systematic third-party certification, and the Commission proposal to mark all consumer products with an indication of origin.

As a reminder, the package includes the Following Directives, (Low Voltage Directive 2006/95/EEC; Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive 2004/108/EC; Simple Pressure Vessels Directive 2009/105/EC; Measuring Instruments Directive 2004/22/EC; Non-automatic Weighing Instruments Directive 2009/23/EC; Civil Explosives Directive 93/15/EEC; Pyrotechnic Articles Directive 2007/23/EC; ATEX Directive 94/9/EC on equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres; Lifts Directive 95/16/EC).

As a reminder, DG Enterprise and Industry (ENTR) and DG Public Health and Consumers (SANCO) have embarked on the preparation of a “Market Surveillance Package” with the aim to streamline all market surveillance-related requirements and procedures from the New Legislative Framework and the General Product Safety Directive 2000/139/EC. In theory, the GPSD covers market surveillance in the non-harmonised area for consumer products, while the NLF covers market surveillance in harmonised areas for consumer and industrial products. In practice, there is an obvious overlap in coverage (some products can fall under both directives) and consequently of procedures, which creates confusion for Member States authorities as well as economic actors.

The adapted directives will be re-numbered and will have to be transposed into national law within 2 years. Market Surveillance Whilst there is no further news emanating from Europe in the UK a further meeting with The Deputy Director of the Better Regulation Delivery Office (BRDO) in November 2015 led to a meeting in December 2015 with the NMRO. At this meeting the members of Europump Circulator Group attended from Grundfos and Wilo. The idea behind the meeting was to hopefully agree a shared understanding of the application of Commission Regulation 641/2009/EC and the amendment 622/2012/EC with regards to eco-design requirements for circulator and Market Surveillance in the UK.

In theory, the GPSD covers market surveillance in the nonharmonised area for consumer products, while the NLF covers market surveillance in harmonised areas for consumer and industrial products. In practice, there is an obvious overlap in coverage (some products can fall under both directives) and consequently of procedures, which creates confusion for Member States authorities as well as economic actors. At this stage, the European Commission faces difficulties in defining the scope of and responsibilities for this package.

The meeting achieved its goal and letters have now been sent to companies who are trading illegally. As a reminder: Within the BPMA the issue of non compliant circulator pumps being sold onto the UK market still continues. This issue has

BPMA Activity Highlights 2015/16 This means that pumps which were not covered by Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS1) and thus may not comply with the substance restrictions prescribed, but which are now subject to Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS2), can still be made available on the market until 22 July 2019.

Dual-use items On 12 October 2015, the Commission adopted a Delegated Regulation (EU) which amends Council Regulation (EC) No 428/2009 on the control of exports, transfer, brokering and transit of dual-use items, and also updates the EU control list of dual-use items. The EU control list was last updated by Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 1382/2014 of 22 October 2014. The key amendments put forward by the Delegated Regulation of 12 October 2015 relate to control parameters, technical definitions and descriptions, and the removal or addition of dual-use items (set out in Annex I). The list of dual-use items needs to be regularly amended and consolidated, in order to provide up-to-date references to export control authorities and operators.

NOTE: In view of the current wording of Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS2), this also means that the distribution / rental channels and stocks will have to be clear of non-conforming pumps on 22 July 2019. However, in view of the serious economic and environmental impact of such clearance, Industry associations together with the European Commission and Member States authorities are trying to find a solution to mitigate such consequences. A new Europump Position Paper is now finished and available for RoHs2 this is now available from SJS. Sweden is preparing a RoHS restriction dossier on medium chain chlorinated paraffins (MCCP). They seem to be mainly used in EEE as a plasticiser / flame retardant in PVC cable insulation formulations. Sweden appointed the UK-based consultancy RPA to prepare the dossier. A first consultation took place in November 2015 on uses and market share and a second is announced for the spring of 2016 on waste management, exposure and alternatives. The final restriction dossier will be submitted to the Commission in August 2016.

Companies should also be aware of the relaxed import and export restrictions previously applied to Iran. The export authorisations apply to dual-use items as listed in Annex I of Regulation (EC) No 428/2009, non-listed items which may be controlled if their use is intended for biological, chemical or nuclear weapons or ballistic missile weapons programmes and, in exceptional cases, non-listed dual-use items to be controlled if their use goes against public security or human rights values.

However medical devices, monitoring and control instruments will benefit from a longer transition period of 2 years. The restriction will therefore apply to categories 8-9 on 22 July 2021. Contrary to the initial proposal, the Directive foresees an exemption for spare parts to repair EEE placed on the market before the new restriction enters into force (i.e. 2019 or 2021).

Following the 2011 Green Paper on the EU dual-use export control system, the European Commission is still preparing policy options proposals to rethink the patterns of the export controls system, address the various implementation issues, and establish a system that could ensure equal requirements of exporters at EU level. This Regulation set up a Community regime for the control of exports, transfer, brokering and transit of dual-use items. The 2011 proposal updates the EU control list (Annex I), makes modifications to the EU General Export Authorisations (Annex II) and introduces delegated acts in order to allow the Commission to rapidly remove destinations and/or items from the scope of existing EU General Export Authorisations.

ENVIRONMENT WEEE AND ROHS DIRECTIVES 2012/19/EU & 2011/65/EU On RoHS The new RoHS directive came into force as of 2nd January. Monitoring and control equipment will be effective as of 22/7/14. Industrial monitoring and control equipment as of 22/7/17. In view of the definition of ‘electrical and electronic equipment’ or ‘EEE’ in the Recast Directive 2011/65/EU (RoHS2), some pumps may be understood as EEE. After careful study of the Directive 2011/65/EU on RoHS, EUROPUMP and its members come to the conclusion that the following pumps and pump units may fall in scope of this Directive from 2nd of January 2013 on: •

Waste water lifting stations for non-industrial, municipal or private use

Waste water pumps for non-industrial or private use

Pumps for garden ponds and similar applications

Drainage pumps for non-industrial or private use

Circulators

BPMA Activity Highlights 2015/16 categories (Parliament agreed 5 categories), but a greater number of products within these categories, also possibly in the mechanical sector. Exclusions from the directive would include equipment designed to be sent into space or for research and development; large-scale stationary industrial tools; large-scale fixed installations; means of transport for persons or goods, excluding electric two-wheel vehicles which are not type-approved; non-road mobile machinery made available exclusively for professional use; medical devices, in vitro diagnostic medical devices and active implantable medical devices. The Commission can propose changes to the scope after an impact assessment during 3 years after entry into force (including the parameters to distinguish between large and small equipment).

On WEEE WEEE2 Directive There will be no link to the RoHs directive The European Commission is still assessing the status of implementation of the WEEE2 Directive, and will publish a correlation table in 2016 to highlight the discrepancies in implementation across the Member States. A list of National Implementing Measures communicated by the Member States is regularly updated on Eur-lex at: http://eurlex.europa.eu/legal-content/FR/NIM/?uri=CELEX:32012L0019. •

At the recent Europump meeting the discussion was again raised on would pumps be within scope of the revised directive. It is believed that the scope will be the same as the original WEEE Directive until 2018, i.e. pumps are not in scope. The scope will be extended to any electrical item after 2018.

A strategy has to be drawn and presented to EUROPUMP “member companies”.

Europump are looking into various options such as: •

Joining or creating a recycling scheme

Presenting alternative concepts and carrying out pilots, VDMA (Germany) and Profluid (France) looking into this.

CHEMICALS (REACH) Amendment of directives 67/548/EEC &199/45/EC

No legal action will be taken until 15-08-2018 and whilst there is no known market surveillance high penalties for none compliance have been announced.

Discussions are still ongoing on how to improve the authorisation process, notably the simplification of applications for low volume substances and the extension of transition periods for the use of substances in spare parts. Initially scheduled this autumn, the Member States’ vote on these two proposals is postponed to 2016.

The BPMA met with BIS in January 2016 to discuss pumps and to see if BIS feel they will be in scope of WEEE2. The BPMA are stating that a product is not in scope if it is NOT ABLE TO FUNCTION BY ITSELF. BIS feel this may not be the case and it may be that the term “large scale” fixed installations will need to used.

On 15 June 2015, the Candidate List was updated with 2 new substances identified as substances of very high concern (SVHC). The list now comprises 163 substances. In addition, Member States already notified their intention to submit 4 further substances by August 2015 (see ECHA Registry of Intentions). As a reminder, the inclusion of substances on the Candidate List triggers immediate communication requirements for downstream users and also notification requirements 6 months later.

BIS have now requested that BPMA write its own Position Paper on WEEE and Pumps using the following documents: UK WEEE guidance: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/producer -responsibility-regulations#waste-electrical-andelectronic-equipment-weee

As announced earlier, ECHA is currently developing guidelines on the implementation of REACH restrictions on nickel, PAHs and lead. The objectives are to clarify certain terms used in the text (e.g. “accessibility”, “normal/reasonably foreseeable conditions of use”) and provide a non-exhaustive list of article types falling within or outside the scope of the restriction.

From that link the page of particular relevance is the page for producers Detailed information on scope is on the link below (it is actually linked from the above producer page). From this link you can get to the Commission’s FAQs which provide additional information, particularly around the exclusions on the move to open scope.

The use of Trichloroethylene (latest application date: 21.10.2014, sunset date: 21.04.2016) and of Chromium compounds, including chromium trioxide (latest application date: 21.03.2016, sunset date: 21.09.2017) will be prohibited if they have not been authorised for use after the sunset date.

https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/upl oads/attachment_data/file/393740/LIT_7876.pdf http://ec.europa.eu/environment/waste/rohs_eee/pdf /faq.pdf

Concerning the authorisation of Chromium compounds (including Chromium trioxide), an action was brought to the EU Court of Justice on 8 July 2013, pleading that Commission Regulation (EU) No 348/2013 (amending REACH and prescribing the authorisation of Chromium trioxide) is “unlawful as it is based on a number of manifest errors of appraisal and must be annulled insofar as it does not contain an exemption from authorisation in respect of the use of chromium trioxide in the chromium plating industry”. The action was brought by an association for the preservation of use and benefit of Chromium trioxide and other substances in surface treatment industry (VECCO - Memmingen, Germany) and its members. As a reminder, Chromium compounds, including Chromium trioxide, are one of the 22 Authorised Substances under REACH, and will be prohibited after 21 September 2017 if not authorised for use (latest application date: 21.03.2016, sunset date: 21.09.2017).

BPMA are now looking for members to help write this position paper. Also In the UK BEAMA have been approached by the Environmental Agency with regards to Shower pumps. The EA believe shower pumps should be part of the scope of WEEE. To date no contact has been made with the BPMA who will dismiss this claim if approached on the basis of the existing Europump Position paper. Members should contact the BPMA if any issues should arise. As a reminder and in summary, the Council agreed a closed scope for 6 years (Parliament agreed an open scope) after entry into force of the recast directive, meaning that recast WEEE would apply only to the 10 existing categories for 6 years. After 6 years, there will be an open scope including in principle “all EEE” with a possible shift to fewer product

Around 4900 substances were estimated to be registered by the end of November but only 3400 phase-in substances have been registered. 24,675 registration dossiers have been submitted for 4300 substances (including 3400 phase-in substances). Approximately 86% of registrations were made by large companies and 14% by SMEs. Representatives (companies representing non-EU manufacturers) made 19% of registrations. Most of the registrations were made by companies based in Germany, the UK, the Netherlands, France and Belgium. Precise figures are available on the ECHA website.

substances, including nanomaterials. REACH is the best possible framework for the risk management of nanomaterials but more specific requirements within the framework have proven necessary. It is essential to access transparent information on nanomaterials and products containing them, but there is no immediate need to require information about all products in which nanomaterials are used.

The BPMA have been working with other members of Europump to come up with Guideline for downstream users in the Pump industry. The final version of this document is available from S Schofield BPMA.

A main challenge is to establish validated methods and instrumentation for detection, characterisation and analysis, completing information on the hazards of nanomaterials and developing methods to assess exposure to them.

Chromium Trioxide

The next regulatory review will take place in 2015 at the latest.

This is not law yet and the product can still be used! ECHA recommended that Chromates should be authorized, but it is up to the Commission to take the final decision. There are many consortiums attempting to influence the Commission on the use of Chromium Trioxide. The main consortium is an organization called laxness. For now members who wish to continue using this substance they need to apply to continue using Chromium Trioxide before November 2014. If you miss this date you will not be able to use this substance after May 2016.

The Downstream Users of Chemicals Co-ordination group (DUCC) has published a report on experience gained with the development of Downstream User Chemical Safety (DU CSA) and DU Chemical Safety Report (DU CSR). On 20 June, ECHA launched a public consultation on its draft recommendation of ten new priority substances to be included in the Authorisation List. The deadline for interested parties to submit comments is 19 September 2012.

EU INTEGRATED POLLUTION PREVENTION AND CONTROL DIRECTIVE 96/61/EC Replaced by the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED)

Water Pumps

During the IED Article 13 Forum meeting (19 October), the IPPC Bureau presented its work programme. Seven BREFs are currently under discussion, including those on large combustion plants, waste treatment and waste incineration. Only two documents will be started in 2016: a new BREF on common waste gas treatment in the chemical sector and the review of the ferrous metals processing BREF. Member States discussed the possibility of merging the ‘horizontal’ BREFs on energy efficiency (including compressed air systems) and industrial cooling systems (ICS) into a single “Resource Efficiency” BREF. There was no real consensus. However, the review of these two BREFs will not start in 2016, as they are not seen as a priority.

Whilst the first phase was introduced January 1st 2013 unfortunately technical issues with the EN standard have meant that a transition paper has been required from the Commission. It is hoped that this will be replace by the standard during the summer of 2013

The European Commission is currently assessing the possibility of extending the scope of the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) to small combustion installations below 50MW.

The standard prEN 16480 has now been circulated for final comment which can only be editorial Earliest publication will be mid 2016.

According to the Commission’s proposal, the expected benefits of the revision will affect health and environment, with the inclusion of large combustion plants, reduction of administrative burden, unified application of BAT, and no impact on competitiveness, Completion of first reading in the European Parliament and Council is expected for January 2009, while the end of the co-decision process and publication of the directive is scheduled for December 2010. The transposition of the directive to the Members States should be completed by July 2012.

Work continues on the Extended Product approach and drafts of the new standards (Parts 1 &2) have now been circulated for comment and comments dealt with these will now proceed to CEN enquiry. Work will also commence on the Extended Product Approach for “Booster sets” (Multiple pump assemblies) to asses if the same or different principles can be used.

Phase 1 by January 1st 2013 and have a MEI of 0.1 (10% cut off)

Phase 2 would be introduced January 1st 2015 and would be a MEI of 0.4 (40% cut off).

The bench mark set by the commission is MEI of 0.7 (70% cut off).

The European Commission have now contracted with VHK and VMAS (Viengand Maagoe) who have now reviewed the scope of Lots 11, 28 & 29.

Europump proposal for Pumps and Pumps Systems which is expected to be incorporated.

They have sent their Final Progress Report to Europump in December 2015. Europump reviewed this report and have responded with 39 pages of comments which will be reviewed at a Stakeholder meeting in Brussels 11th February 2016.

ENERGY EUROPEAN COMMISSION PROPOSALS FOR AN ECODESIGN FOR ENERGY-USING PRODUCTS (EUP) FRAMEWORK DIRECTIVE – Directive 2005/32/EC Energy related Products (ErP) Directive 2009/125/EC

No item is yet out of scope and some new items such as Self Priming pumps have been introduced. Current status; ENER Lot 28 & 29: At the Consultation forum 5th May 2014 the commission recognised the low energy savings within the two lots and agreed that no implementing measure would be put on these products at this moment. It was agreed to reinvestigate when the Extended Product Approach scheme was finished in 2015 -16. Implementing measures would depend on energy savings from the EPA.

On 11 March 2009, the EcoDesign Regulatory Committee approved new eco-design rules setting efficiency standards for industrial electric motors. Motors will have to meet minimum efficiency standards from 2011. The first phase will be introduced 16th June and motors must comply to IE2 efficiency levels. On January 1st 2015 Motors with a rated output of 7.5 - 375kW must meet either the IE3 efficiency or the IE2 level if fitted with a VSD. Thus cutting the annual energy consumption of these engines by around 135 terawatt hours.

Work has already commenced within Lot 28 (In Berlin) to assess the Functional Efficiency Indicator (FEI) rather than the MEI. The final scope of Lot 29 still needs to be agreed prior to hydraulic data collection of the agreed scope.

A guideline has now been developed by Europump for Circulators and Water pumps and is available from S Schofield upon request.

Electric motors and VSD, ENER Lot 30: Further to the Consultation Forum meeting (29 September 2014), the Commission launched the Impact Assessment (done by VHK & Viegand Maagøe). As regards next steps, the impact Assessment Board is foreseen in March or April 2015, followed by inter-service Consultation (May / June 2015) with a view to final adoption at the end of the year.

Circulators The first phase came into effect as of January 1st 2013. After sustained lobbying efforts, the European Pump Manufacturers Association EUROPUMP succeeded in negotiating an acceptable text with some important modifications introduced at the last minute: the date of the second stage was set at 1 August 2015 instead of 1 January

In the UK we have now been advised that the National Measurements Office has been appointed as the market surveillance authority.

BPMA Activity Highlights 2015/16 Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU

continued from previous page

European Commission DG Energy opened the consultation on Directive 2012/27/EU on energy efficiency (EED). The objective of this survey is to consult stakeholders and citizens on the review of this directive, foreseen for the second half of 2016. The deadline for providing input is 29 January 2016. The review has a targeted approach and will focus on Articles 1, 3, 6, 7, 9-11, 20 and 24, in order to assess them in view of the 2030 energy efficiency target. The consultation is open until 29 January 2016. The BPMA submitted is own set of comments on the Consultation.

Energy Labelling Directive Directive 2010/30/EU As regards the review of the framework Energy Labelling Directive, Member States reached an agreement endorsed by Energy Ministers on 26 November (see Council position of 13 November). Compared to the Commission proposal tabled on 15 July 2015, Member States deleted the reference to “services” in the “energy-related product” definition, so that it covers “goods” and “systems” only. They maintained the principle of empty top classes in new labels and the rescaling mechanism (back to A-G scale), but abolished the differentiation between new and existing labels. In addition, Member States supported the database. However, the amount of information has been considerably reduced (e.g. no test reports) and some provisions have been added to safeguard confidential information.

A review and stronger enforcement of the EED will be part of the European Commission’s work programme for 2016. Article 8 of the EED on Energy Audits and Energy Management Systems requires Member States to promote high-quality energy audits in their territories and ensure that their large enterprises are subject to regular energy audits at least every four years. Implementation of the recommendations resulting from these audits should be encouraged by the Member States.

The Commission has recently launched a study on the next Ecodesign Working Plan 2015-2017 implementing the Ecodesign Directive, with a view to developing a robust classification of product groups and setting up an indicative list of priority product groups (indicative number of 20) for Ecodesign (and Energy Labelling) legislation. The study is carried out by the Öko-Institut (project leader), together with BIO by Deloitte (formerly BIO Intelligence Service, framework contract leader) and ERA Technology.

The directive entered into force December 4th 2012 and member states need to transpose into national law by 5th June 2014. The European Commission has started the preparation of implementation guidelines, with the objective to ensure a timely and correct implementation of the EED. These guidelines, currently developed in close cooperation with Member States through the EED Committee, are expected to be finalised and published in the first half of 2013.

On the state of implementation of the directive, 9 energy labelling measures have been adopted and 6 implementing measures + 2 horizontal measures (online labels & use of tolerances) are under preparation. On the review of the Directive foreseen by 31 December 2014 (Article 14 Directive 2010/30/EU), issues to be considered include the effectiveness of the Directive and of its delegated acts, the contribution of the “advertising provision”, the effectiveness of the “public procurement provision”, and the need for amending the design and content of the label. Directive 2010/30/EU The directive entered into force on 20 May 2010, and will apply from 20 July 2011. Points (d), (g) and (h) of Article 5 (responsibilities of suppliers) will apply from 31 July 2011. Similarly to the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, the text of the directive comes from an agreement reached by the Council and European Parliament on the Commission proposal for the recast of the Energy Labelling Directive. As a reminder, the main aspects of the agreed text include an extension to energy-related products having direct or indirect impact on energy consumption or other essential resources during use, and the layout of the label to remain an A to G colour scale, with the creation of three additional efficiency classes (A+, A++ and A+++) with a limit of seven. A rescaling of classes must take place when a significant proportion of products on the market achieve the two highest energy efficiency classes and when additional savings may be achieved by further differentiating products. The effectiveness of the Directive and the implementing measures must be reviewed by the end of 2014. Suppliers’ information obligations under article 4 provide for the display of the label, a technical fiche in application of the directive and implementing measure (including built-in or installed products). BPMA need to ascertain if this will affect the labelling of Circulator Pumps. Suppliers will also be obliged to establish technical documentation, design calculations, test reports... and may use documentation already established in accordance with relevant Community legislation (i.e. the Ecodesign Directive).http://ec.europa.eu/energy/demand/legislation/doc/ 2008_02_22/2008_consultation_energy_labelling_document_e n.pdf

BPMA Activity Highlights 2015/16 INTERNAL MARKET

continued from previous page

OUTDOOR NOISE DIRECTIVE Directive 2000/14/EC (amended by the Directive 2005/88/EC).

Under article 8 of the Directive enterprises that are non SME are “subject to an energy audit carried out in an independent and cost-effective manner by qualified and/or accredited experts or implemented and supervised by independent authorities under national legislation by –three years after entry into force of this Directive- and at least every four years from the date of the previous energy audit”.

On 1 April 2015, the European Commission launched a study to assess the OND scope and noise limit values. The Commission selected a consortium called ‘Odelia’ (Outdoor Equipment Noise Limit Assessment). This study will perform 4 tasks:

The directive establishes a common framework of measures for the promotion of energy efficiency within the EU in order to achieve the 20% energy efficiency target by 2020 and contains provisions for further improvements beyond that date.

1. Assessment of the existing limit values of Article 12 equipment to assess whether and how such figures should be revised; 2. Assessment of equipment currently in the OND without limit values (Article 13 equipment) to advise whether mandatory limit values should be assigned to any equipment;

Each Member State will have to set an indicative national energy efficiency target, based on, primary or final energy consumption, primary or final energy savings or energy intensity.

3. Assessment of equipment not currently in the OND scope but which could feasibly be included in a future Regulation;

By 30 June 2014, the Commission will assess the progress achieved and decide whether the Union is likely to achieve energy consumption of no more than 1474 Mtoe of primary energy and/or no more than 1078 Mtoe of final energy consumption in 2020.

4. Identification of the test methods for the measurement of limit values in order to allow assessment of compliance of equipment with the required limit values. ODELIA issued its draft final report (available from the secretariat) on the scope and limit values of the existing Outdoor Noise Directive (2000/14/EC). ODELIA improved its report by including justification of proposals for revised and new noise limits as well as new equipment in scope. Some proposals have also been amended compared to the intermediate report. However, the report does not specify why some industry comments have not been taken into account. In addition, the overall assessment methodology has not been revised, despite requests by many industry sectors. For example, local noise problems remain the first criterion to be assessed when revising or setting a noise limit, instead of the environmental impact of the given equipment. As regards next steps, publication of the final report is foreseen in early 2016. The study conclusions will then be used as input for the impact assessment to be launched in 2016 or 2017. The Commission expects to table its proposal in 2018, with the new legislation being applicable as from 2020/2021.

In relation to public buildings, Member States will have to ensure that as from 1 January 2014, 3 % of the total floor area of heated and/or cooled buildings owned by their central government is renovated each year. The European Parliament, the Council and the Commission agreed to submit themselves to a comparable voluntary undertaking (subject to budgetary and procurement rules). In addition, Member States are required to establish a longterm strategy for mobilising investment in the renovation of the national stock of residential and commercial buildings. Member State will set up an energy efficiency obligation scheme ensuring that, energy distributors and/or retail energy sales companies, achieve a cumulative end-use energy savings target of 1.5 % of the annual energy sales to final consumers (by the end of 2020), with some flexibility on how to achieve this target as long as these do not lead to a reduction of more than 25 % of the amount of the energy savings target.

It also confirmed that if a merger takes place, and the OND is integrated into the MD, the latter will also be aligned with the New Legislative Framework. A meeting to start discussions is still expected after the summer. No further details on such discussions are available to date.

The directive also contains provisions on energy audits and energy management systems, energy metering, billing information, and promotion of efficiency in heating and cooling, energy transformation, transmission and distribution and energy services.

The European Commission proposal for a revision of Directive 2000/14/EC is not expected before 2012.

The directive should result in a 17% improvement in energy efficiency by 2020 compared to the 20% target, and will be completed by other measures.

Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) In November 2015 an inception impact assessment was published by DG Energy, mentioning inter alia a ‘smart financing for smart buildings’ initiative. The document explains that the Commission will complete its roundup of the EPBD consultation by February 2016 and, in doing so, it will check policy coherence between energy efficiency in buildings and related products (Ecodesign), keeping an eye on streamlining Member States’ planning and reporting obligations to the Commission. On subsidiarity, EU action is needed to command better (more transparent, comparable) data on building stocks at EU level in order to define uniform conditions for financing.

Both the Council and the European Parliament still have to formally endorse the agreement. Publication in the OJEU is expected for October 2012. The UK Government have chosen to introduce the requirements of the Directive through a Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS). The ESOS scheme information has been circulated for consultation to all necessary stakeholders. The BPMA responded to this consultation. The results of the ESOS consultation will be available by the summer 2014. Also the UK government working with BSI have written a PAS (Public Available Specification) 51215 for the competency of a lead energy assessor. The BPMA have also made relevant comments to this document, both are available from S. Schofield upon request.

New guidelines are expected before 2015 to clarify the meaning of a requirement in the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive that all EU states make new buildings ‘nearly zero-energy’ by 2021.

BPMA Activity Highlights 2015/16 In the building sector, the Commission suggests setting up binding Ecodesign measures for water-related products, developing voluntary ecolabel and green public procurement criteria, better enforcement of the Water Framework Directive and especially a search for water pricing/cost-recovery, raising consumer/user awareness regarding water uses through footprinting, voluntary labelling and certification schemes, and encouraging water re-use from wastewater plants and industrial installations for irrigation and industrial processes, including a regulation establishing common standards.

continued from previous page

A study on “Energy performance certificates in buildings and their impact on transaction prices and rents in selected EU countries” performed by BIO Intelligence was published by the European Commission on 20 June 2013. The study shows a positive impact of the Energy Performance Certificate under the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (Directive 2010/31/EU) on sales and rental prices, indicating that better energy efficiency is rewarded in the market. In one of the first studies of its kind to include an analysis of residential markets in Europe, it was found that higher energy ratings result in substantially higher sales or rental values of buildings on average in most of the Member States that were analysed.

In the context of the 2012 water blueprint policy framework, DG Environment has launched a public consultation on policy options to optimise water reuse in the EU. The Commission has broadly followed the policy recommendations submitted by the Deloitte consultants in the spring of 2014. The consultants found that there are few incentives for water reuse in the Member States, mainly because of inadequate pricing and controls on freshwater abstraction. Moreover, the existing national standards on water reuse are considered too strict. Therefore, these problems could be addressed by developing non-binding guidelines to encourage water reuse and implement EU standards which can be used to issue permits for water reuse. The Commission estimates that a reuse of 3,222 cubic megameters of water per year in the EU can be achieved by 2025. This accounts for 1.4% of freshwater withdrawals, which is three times higher than the current levels of reused urban wastewater. The impact assessment which is underway will put emphasis on the reuse of appropriately treated water from sewage works and industry and cover a wide range of areas where water reuse can be applied: agricultural, urban, industrial, groundwater recharge etc. A legislative proposal may be adopted next year. ■

Environmental footprint initiative In its Communication on the Circular Economy Package (see article on resource efficiency), the Commission stresses the potential contribution of the Product Environmental Footprint to measure or communicate environmental information to consumers. Stakeholders who were willing to propose a product category for the development of Product Environmental Footprint Category Rules (PEFCRs) or a sector for which to develop Organisation Environmental Footprint Sector Rules (OEFSRs) were invited to participate in this call. On the basis of the list of products and sectors proposed for the pilot scheme, applications were received for the construction of electricity transmission lines, lighting systems, batteries, metal sheets, water treatment, chemistry machinery, cooker hoods, highvoltage circuit breakers, ICT (data storage), ICT (UPS, Uninterrupted Power Supplies), refrigerators, toilets and washing machines. Since the last BPMA Technical Meeting Europump has decided to engage in this project. It is felt that if a product does not offer energy savings through the ERP directive it may produce savings from an environmental footprint index!!! At the first Europump PEF meeting which BPMA staff and members attended it was noted that the consultant running the project would only accept type 3 approvals which would include 3rd party inspection. This has been debated at Europump and the goal of any pump related PEF would EXCLUDE 3rd Part inspection. This project is currently proceeding and conclusions. For a better understanding of the process for developing these rules, testing verification and communication vehicles, the Commission established a Guidance for the implementation of the EU Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) and a Guidance for the implementation of the EU Organisation Environmental Footprint.

Water European Innovation Partnership (No further news) On 9 March 2015, the European Commission published its 4th implementation report on the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and the Flood Directive (FD). The Commission Communication on the WFD and FD is accompanied by two staff working documents. A series of concrete recommendations are addressed to all Member States, with a view to improving implementation of EU water policies, which ultimately ties in with meeting the environmental objectives set out under article 4 of the WFD. Some examples of recommended measures are better water pricing, controls on water abstraction, and tackling pollution from agriculture. Additionally, the reports note that the Member States have not reaped the benefits of the available EU funding to support water objectives (e.g. treatment of waste water or minimising flood risks).

Further Atex Information •

ISO 80079-36 and ISO 80079-37 are currently still being transitioned to FDIS (these are the ISO ‘replacements’ to EN 134631 and EN 13463-5, -6, -8 respectively).

From the recent EXL/23 committee meeting it seems the understanding is that the ISOs will be available sometime before the eventual EN transpositions (which will then become harmonised for ATEX).

Some of the experts there noted that the during the overlap of the different standards being brought in manufacturers may be able to use the FDIS and ISO versions to meet the EHSRs of ATEX if they so choose.

The EN transpositions are still being compiled with the EU Annexes FprEN versions now in circulation

UK Pump Imports 2003, 2014, 2015 – Top countries * $million, current prices

Historical Market Size and Growth – Long-Run Trends Market size averages around $1.5 billion per year (around £975 million at 2010 exchange rates), with parts and repair accounting for almost 39% of the total. Overall market growth is relatively slow and dependent on replacement demand because the installed base is large in relation to the need for expanded plant capacity. Replacement demand is therefore much more important than suggested by parts and repair, and may account for as much as 75% of the market. Although overall market growth is slow, there can be shifts in the structure of demand because of changes in the relative growth rates of different end uses. For example, public sector construction resulted in a huge growth of demand since 1997 owing to the election of a Labour government, but has now been cut back. The rapid build-up of chemical plant capacity in the Middle East and Asia has adversely affected investment in the UK chemical industry. Also, the rapid development of shale gas/oil in the USA has resulted in a major gain in the competitiveness of USA chemicals relative to the UK and the rest of Europe.

The Importance of Exports and Imports Exports probably account for around 60% of sales, although measurement problems prevent a clear comparison of exports with the level of total sales. The pattern of exports by destination 2003-15 (see table) shows some marked changes. Exports grew by 7.7% per year 2003-14, compared with 7.3% per year for imports. Exports fell by 4.2% in 2015, whereas imports fell by 11.2%.

While recovery from the 2008/9 recession occurred up to 2012, there has been stagnation in the world economy since then. Part of the explanation is the slowdown in China, but markets in Japan, Europe and Latin America have also been weak. Until recently prospects in the UK and USA were better than average. However, growth is now faltering in the USA, following strong dollar appreciation, and there is also a slowdown in the UK. UK Pump Market

How do you figure out the efficiency of a motor and drive? How do you figure out the efficiency of a motor and drive? By: Frank Griffiths of ABB Ltd New legislation that defines the energy efficiency requirements for variable-speed drives is on its way. The standard behind the legislation is already out there, and as Frank Griffiths, Drives Consultant Engineer, ABB Ltd. explains, it is good news and will help industry gain clear and valid comparisons of total efficiency.

-

Defines IE (efficiency classes for motors) Based on efficiency Measued at 100 percent speed and 100 percent torque

-

New efficiency class (IE) for drives and integrated auxiliaries Based on drive losses (percent in watts) Measured or calculated at 90 percent frequency and 100 percent current

-

New system efficiency classes (IEs) for the drive, motor and auxiliaries Provies a standardized way to determine system losses via measurements or calculations at standardized operating points The PDS efficiency class is based on the determined system losses at one operating point

Energy efficiency in industrial manufacturing is a hot topic as the new EN50598-2 standard published in December 2014 has put it firmly in the spotlight. The goal is to get further efficiency and energy savings, with the standard introducing new IE classifications for total efficiencies in the complete drive module (CDM) and the power drive system (PDS). Presently the IE classification applies only to motors, but the new standard takes a broader approach for complete variablespeed drives (VSD) and motor packages. With proper application, EN50598-2 will help OEMs and industrial users achieve better operational efficiencies in complete systems, not just individual components, resulting in energy savings and improved return on investment (RoI) of the entire operation. Direct-on-line (DOL) motors that are connected directly to the electrical supply without any drive have had IE classifications of IE0, IE1, IE2, IE3 and IE4 for several years; the higher the number the better the efficiency. EN50598 introduces the term CDM (for complete drive module), which is the same as the old term VSD (variablespeed drive). CDM now has IE classes IE0, IE1 and IE2 but these IE classes are defined differently from those for DOL motors. EN50598 also, for the first time, defines the term PDS (power drive system), which equals the total system efficiency even accounting for losses. So the PDS is the motor + VSD combination and is rated with new IES classes IES0, IES1 and IES2 where the S stands for system. How do you figure out the efficiency of a drive? One of the great things about EN 50598 is that it actually provides the methodology for measuring the efficiency of the CDM and PDS, where previously it was guesswork based on combining the efficiency ratings of the individual components.

-

The measurements also take account of VSDs running at different capacities, giving a more accurate reflection of the driveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efficiency.

Typical operating area Operating point where IE efficiency classes are defined Standardized operating oints Operating point where PDS efficiency classes (IEs) are determined

The IE classification for motors is ordinarily taken at 100 percent motor speed and 100 percent motor torque; however this is not the case for CDM, for which the IE classification is taken at 90 percent frequency and 100 percent current. EN 50598-2 also defines eight operating points of various frequency and current loads from which the CDM losses can be determined to establish the efficiency based on the CDM running at different capacities.

How do you figure out the efficiency of a motor and a drive? The main upshot of EN 50598 is, of course, that it leads to increased energy efficiency in drives and motors. Increased energy efficiency means decreased energy costs, and with a driveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s payback time usually between six months to two years, this results in energy and cost savings all around.

EN 50598-2 also introduces an IES for the motor + VSD combination, or PDS for motors and drives from 100 to 1,000 volts, with power up to 1,000 kW. IES classifications range from IE0, the lowest efficiency, up to IE2, although higher efficiency classes will be introduced to keep pace with evolving technologies.

For manufacturers like ABB, it adds a further incentive to create increasingly efficient motors and drives. There is clearly an appetite in the market for it, and this demand from customers will lead to more innovation and increased standards across the industry.

Similarly to the CDM, the standard defines different operating points from which a more accurate efficiency rating can be determined based on typical operating levels, as many VSDs are often run at partial loads.

Having a better picture of the whole package efficiency at different operating levels enables manufacturers to work

36


How do you figure out the efficiency of a motor and drive? ABB is a complete drive module (CDM) and motor manufacturer. We strongly support the system approach in the EN 50598-2 in order to determine and verify the efficiency of the power drive system. We also support the approac in EN 50598-1 for power-driven equipment efficiency standards. ■

continued from previous page

towards optimum efficiency for complete drive modules and PDSs, where previously data had to be extrapolated from the efficiency of the individual components. Armed with this information manufacturers can now inform customers exactly how much energy a motor and drive package will save in any given application.

If you want to learn more about the new standard, the new IE and IES classifications and how they might affect you visit our EcoDesign website: http://new.abb.com/drives/ecodesign

Motor and drive owners and operators benefit from these energy savings, which translate into cost savings, particularly for partial loads. When the time comes to upgrade or replace a drive these more accurate efficiency classifications, and the means with which to determine them, enables customers to choose a motor and drive package that will save them the most energy.

UK Pump Market Prospects 2016-2020 continued from page 35

Euro can survive in the longer term. In the immediate future, the UK referendum on continued EU membership may have a major impact on growth in both the UK and the EU. A ‘Brexit’ would certainly lead to a short-term recession in the UK, which would spread to the rest of the EU, but in the longer term the economic effects would probably be neutral. Our forecast assumes that the UK will remain a member of the EU and that the Euro will survive over the next five years. For the UK, the chart shows a sharp fall in the pump market (excluding parts and repair) 2008-9. Although there was a recovery in 2010/11 this was not sustained. Market size will not achieve the peak reached in 2006 until 2020. Housebuilding is expected to be a major growth area, given the expansion of population resulting from immigration. Power generation should also grow significantly relative to other sectors, owing to the urgent need to replace existing coal and nuclear plant capacity. The continued delay in authorising new nuclear plants may well lead to power blackouts. New gasfired power plants may therefore prove to be essential in the short-term. ■

Consider the options when pumping from sumps or underground tanks Open blade impellers allow the passage of solid particles and a check valve in the suction flange prevents a back syphon effect when the pump is stopped to retain liquid in the pump casing ready for the next priming cycle. The mechanical seal is normally oil lubricated to prevent dry running during the priming cycle. Maintenance is simple and parts can be easily replaced.

Consider the options when pumping from sumps or underground tanks By: Peter Staddon of The Pump Company Ltd The three main options when pumping liquids from sumps or below ground tanks are:-

These pumps are not suitable for pumping hot liquids on a suction lift and one should consult the NPSH curve to establish the suction lift available. Air leaks in the suction line can effect priming times, limited dry running is possible although this should be avoided.

1. Submersible 2. Self-Priming 3. Cantilever

ATEX certified pumps are also available.

All three pump types come with a range of Pro’s and Con’s, but the user should bear in mind the type of liquids that that will be pumped.

3. Cantilever The main feature of Cantilever pumps is that there are no bearings or bushing submerged, therefore the pump is capable of handling solid, even abrasive or corrosive liquids without the need of external flushing. The benefit of having no seals in contact with the liquid means temperatures can exceed 500°C and the pump can dry run without causing damage

If you are only going to pump storm water or sewage, then the selection process will be based upon location, accessibility and budget. However, if you are pumping process effluent which is corrosive, abrasive or a hot liquid the choice of pumps available should be carefully considered. 1. Submersible Small light weight submersible pumps are extremely cost effective when a cold clean liquid is pumped, but when flow rates and pump sizes increase the ancillary equipment required can quickly add cost.

The Cantilever pump primes automatically when the liquid covers the impeller, so an additional benefit is that the pump can even run without level controls. Material options are many, from cast iron or AISA 316 through to Sanicro 28 and wear resisting steel. The column length of the pump is 0.3 – 1.5m but by fitting a tail pipe on the suction, tanks can be emptied up to 5m in depth, the pump can even be fitted externally to a tank/sump.

Submersible pumps are hermetically sealed and are thought of as a “fit and forget” solution. They are inherently self-priming and don’t suffer cavitation issues with certain models having the ability to pump solids. Motors are cooled by the pumped product and generally they are quiet in operation. Guide rail systems and lifting gantries are often necessary for heavier units. Conversely, any leakage into the pump casing via gaskets or cable entry inevitably proves disastrous. Whilst there are versions that will handle corrosive or abrasive liquids and solids. The pumping of hot liquids is generally limited to 40°C. Dry running is fatal.

Various impellers are available. Vortex impellers capable of passing solids up to 90% of the discharge port, as well as abrasive liquids or filamentous particles. Channel impellers and closed/open impellers can also be fitted.

Submersible pumps can be fitted with double mechanical seals and macerating cutter blades 2. Self-priming Self-Priming pumps by comparison tend to offer a cost effective solution, maintenance tends to be easier as the installation is above ground and life expectancy tends to be longer than a comparable submersible pump.

Due to its robust construction coupled with no mechanical wear the Cantilever pump has almost no maintenance cost which is the payback for a higher purchase price In summary, if you are faced with pumping process liquids that are high temperature, corrosive, abrasive or mixed effluents that contain solids you need to consider the various options available to you.

To operate, a simple suction pipe is immersed into the liquid and after an initial filling of liquid, the pump is automatically primed to a height of 7.5m, although the discharge must be free to vent, or an air release valve should be fitted to the discharge.

The cheapest pump to buy is not necessarily the one that will have the lowest life cost or even be suitable for your application. Always ask your pump supplier to explain the options available to you. ■

Off-site insight It is also important to select a partner who has the capacity, knowledge, expertise as well as the necessary accreditations and who can offer a recognised centre of manufacturing excellence that can meet all the necessary requirements such as design, build, assembly, testing and distribution from under one roof, making this a streamlined and very cost effective option.

Off-site insight By: Linda Dingley of Grundfos Pumps Ltd Off-site build started to become an identifiable trend some years ago and in recent years the interest in, as well as the potential for, this type of build has grown considerably.

This is certainly true in the case of wastewater pumping stations, where the pump pit, pumps and controls are combined to suit specific requirements for each individual application. And the good news continues as off-site build package also ticks many other boxes. These include:

This method of delivering a solution is called a number of different names, these include: off-site construction, off-site manufacture, build off-site and Engineered to Order although this particular term is usually used for one-off solutions. Regardless of what it is called, the explanation relating to this type of solution remains unchanged - it is a structure that is built at a different location than the actual location that it will be used in. The manufacturing of the solutions occurs in a manufacturing plant that offers specific expertise to facilitate this type of process, with units being constructed in the factory then transported to the site.

Fire power Another great example of the flexibility offered by off-site build was demonstrated in a solution provided to B&Q. With a stock profile of around 40,000 lines - many of which are flammable – means a state of the art fire suppression system is a high priority for them. To meet their demand a bespoke packaged pump house solution that was manufactured to order and met the most stringent criteria.

water treatment

reduced Totex

Importantly this approach also delivers a reduced environmental impact, a much reduced CO2 footprint as well as a reduction in wastage.

These modular solutions are available from a range of sources and a few specialist pump companies are currently capable of meeting the required standards and who can supply a total pumping off-site solution. These solutions arrive on site complete with all the necessary pumps, piping, valves and level control switches and are suitable for use in a wide range of application demands including: •

The complete package However, regardless of what application it is required for, what this delivers is a complete solution that will incorporate all aspects from planning and design, through to fabrication and the assembly of the required components that are built and tested at a location other than their final installed location. With so much potential to support a wide range of applications that would benefit from boosters, pumps, control panels and ancillary items to be shipped as a single unit and delivered to site ready for installation.

Example of a packaged plant fire solution The solution, a pre-packaged pump house, was delivered to site complete with the pumps – in this instance 2 x LPCB high hazard diesel pumps - and with the necessary pipework, valves, wiring, heating, lighting and drainage, all packaged within in an insulated steel enclosure and mounted on a structural steel baseplate. The unit was off loaded and installed, ready for use, in just a few hours. It’s a wrap With so many potential applications that can be supported by this type of solution as well as the huge range of benefits that it offers, it is of little surprise that off-site build is gaining in popularity and will continue to do so into the future as these systems have the flexibility to consistently deliver a complete solution to a myriad of demands. ■

Off site build the complete pump package It is little wonder that there has been such an amount of interest in this, as there are a huge range of benefits with this type of engineering solutions as these packaged solutions offer a reduction in costs, lead time and installation time. In addition Health & Safety risks are significantly decreased plus there is less associated waste.

Mobile app points to potential energy savings of pumps Mobile app points to potential energy savings of pumps By: Christoph P. Pauly of KSB In many process engineering applications, pump systems form the backbone of production (Figure 1) and greatly impact the economic efficiency of the entire system. Pumps consume a large amount of the electrical energy used in industry. Depending on the scope of analysis, the potential savings on energy in current industrial systems range between 30 percent and 40 percent. In concrete terms, the German Energy Agency (dena) has calculated that pump system operators in Germany could save as much as 14 billion kWh per year. That would translate into annual savings of 1.12 billion euros for the operators themselves and a drop of 7.7 million tonnes in CO2 emissions. Plant operators are now much more interested in the power consumption of their systems than they were only a few years ago.

Figure 2: The KSB Sonolyzer mobile app allows users to analyse the efficiency of fixed speed pumps with asynchronous motors in just 20 seconds. using additional measuring equipment. A leading pump manufacturer have developed an app to help plant operators out. This is a free app for smartphones or tablets that can analyse potential savings in a fast and simple measurement process that does not require any additional instrumentation and can even be used in potentially explosive atmospheres if the smartphone or tablet PC has appropriate protection.

Figure 1: It is particularly in existing plants that much potential for reducing pump operating costs can still be identified.

The advantage of this system is that it can determine within 20 seconds whether or not a pump is working under part load. Use of the app is not restricted to the manufacturer’s products – it works just as well on products of other makes. Drawing on the decades-long experience of the pump manufacturer, this app is designed to save valuable time by calculating operating points in a very simple process. Its operation is intuitive. After downloading the app, the user selects the relevant pump type and enters the name plate data of the pump and connected asynchronous motor. It is also possible to enter a designation for the measurement and save it with a photograph of the pump in the data record.

There are many reasons why much too much energy is still being wasted in connection with pump operation. In refineries and process engineering plants, maximum priority is attached to productivity and fast restarting following repairs. Frequently, when piping systems have been modified for production-related reasons, the installed pump sizes are not subsequently adjusted to match. The reason why far too much energy than necessary is sometimes used has to do with choosing the wrong valves or valves that are not dimensioned correctly, installing inadequate pipe radii or undersized pipe cross-sections. Aggravating the situation is the fact that many pumps are selected with a 10 or 15 percent “safety margin” – just to be sure. Another widespread problem is that pumps are often left to run far off of their originally envisaged operating point.

The measurement is then started and the smartphone is held next to the fan hood of the motor for 20 seconds (Figure 2). The motor fan’s noise is recorded and the noise spectrum is transferred to the app creator Cloud for analysis via a secure connection. Based on the maximum amplitude of the recorded spectrum, the algorithm now calculates the number of blades of the fan impeller and the blade passing frequency and derives from this information the shaft speed of the machine. Using the nominal data of the asynchronous motor entered by the user and a slip model, the algorithm then calculates the input power on the basis of the shaft speed. It can estimate the pump flow rate from the input power calculation. By correlating the performance data entered by the user with the hydraulic systems database developed by the manufacturer, the app can conclude whether the pump is operating at part load.

It is relatively easy to select a hydraulically optimal pump for new installations. As long as the requirements to be met by the pump are known, a very energy-efficient pump set can be chosen with great accuracy by way of pump selection programs like those that most manufacturers have on hand for their customers. It is, of course, essential that a large number of closely spaced pump sizes be available to the user, and that the impeller diameters be trimmed to match the required operating point. Safety margins should be avoided. Even efficient pumps cannot run economically if they are used in the wrong operating mode. The first step in identifying energy saving potential is to ascertain the pump’s present operating point and mode of operation. In the past, this was almost impossible without

The analysis result is displayed on the mobile phone or tablet (Figure 3). If it is established that the pump is working under

Mobile app points to potential energy savings of pumps energy efficiency and reducing operating costs. It is not only important to assess the individual machine, but to evaluate the system as a whole. In the case of pumps, this means that valves and piping must also be taken into account. Although an assessment of individual components can identify potential savings of up to 10 percent, an evaluation of the whole system can achieve savings of up to 60 percent. While identification of potential savings is important, it is also vital to focus on the cost effectiveness of optimisation measures.

part load, then there is potential for energy efficiency optimisation. Using this app, it is possible to identify pumps with optimisation potential simply and efficiently during a site survey or plant walkdown by service staff. Identification of potential on the basis of the pump’s age, an inconvenient paper-based process that does not provide meaningful results, is no longer necessary, while checks using the new app can be included in the daily work schedule.

Finding ways to reduce the operating costs of pumps and other rotating equipment is being made easier with new mobile and tablet technology offered by pump manufacturers. For the actual implementation of energy saving measures, the Frankenthal experts are offering the FluidFuture energy efficiency concept, a structured system of suitable products, equipment and services.

Furthermore, by repeating the analysis of a pump at different times, it is possible to eliminate the risk that the operating conditions prevailing during one particular measurement have falsified results. Operators or service staff are normally so familiar with their plant that they notice any significant deviations from normal operation and know when further investigation of a pump unit is called for. But it is at moments like these that they can seek support from the pump manufacturer’s experts. An e-mail containing the analysis results is sent from the app to an appropriately qualified employee of the pump manufacturer closest to the user’s location.

The following options are available, depending on the load profile: •

Operate based on actual demand (variable speed operation)

Reduce the impeller diameter

Use smaller pump sizes

Install high-efficiency motors

Optimise piping

FluidFuture allows operators and service staff to access the wealth of experience garnered by the pump manufacturer over many decades. Modern centrifugal pumps have already achieved a level of efficiency that could hardly be further improved. When they appear to be consuming more energy than necessary, it is very probably due to the fact that people pay too little attention to pumps that just keep running. No pump can operate more economically than its surrounding system allows. ■

Single phase motor theory Single phase motor theory By: Brian Bannister of Lafert Electric Motors Ltd Firstly, what is the difference between a 3 phase supply & a single phase supply ? It may be a little easier to think of a day to day similarity as below: Using a single phase supply is like one strong man pushing a car uphill. At some point, the work is beyond what that one man can do whereas a 3 phase supply is like having 3 equally strong men each pushing the car in a relay system one after another. The end result is that each man is not doing the work of the one strong man, but together, the three of them push the car further. That is the total distance travelled is much greater when added up. However, there may be a number of reasons that people are unable to use a three phase supply, the main one being the cost of having it installed into a small workshop. For example, this can be as high as £20,000 dependent upon your area, accessibility, required cable lengths etc.

Single phase motor The major distinction between the different types of singlephase AC motors is how they go about starting the rotor in a particular direction such that the alternating field will produce rotary motion in the desired direction. This is usually done by some device that introduces a phase-shifted magnetic field on one side of the rotor.

One example of an industry sector that single phase motors are more commonly used in place of three phase is where portable or mobile equipment is required, typically floor polishing equipment, cement mixers, pressure washers, portable conveyors etc. In these cases, single phase motors are widely used due to economics, practicality and electrical safety, whilst still maintaining relatively high starting torque and overall performance. In many of the above mentioned mobile applications there is also a requirement for the driven equipment to be powered using a stand-alone generator, this is again where economics and practicality come in. Typically, three phase generators are very large and cumbersome with a price tag to match whereas single phase compressors are a comparably affordable solution and much more compact. This again encourages the users of this type of equipment to follow the preference of single phase over three phase.

There are 2 main types of single phase motor as follows that both use capacitors to shift the magnetic field on start up. These are most commonly available in powers of up to around 3kW. PSC or Permanent Split Capacitor The running capacitor of this type of motor is “permanently” left in series with the start winding during its full operating cycle. Performance is maximised by matching carefully the capacitance in relationship to the winding resistance but typically the starting torque is quite low with a maximum of around 60%-70% of nominal torque being the norm. This characteristic makes the “PSC” type motors suitable for low torque applications such as pumps and fans.

Basic Electric Motor Principal

CSR or Capacitor Start & Run

An electric motor uses basic magnetic rules of repulsion & attraction to twist a rotating object (the rotor) around in a circle. Both the rotor and the stationary structure (the stator) are magnetic and their magnetic poles are initially arranged so that the rotor must turn in a particular direction in order to bring its north poles closer to the stator’s south poles and vice versa. The rotor thus experiences a twist and it begins to rotate. But the magnets of the rotor and stator aren’t all permanent magnets. At least some of the magnets are electromagnets. In a typical motor, these electromagnets are designed so that their poles change just as the rotor’s north poles have reached the stator’s south poles. After the poles change, the rotor finds itself having to continue turning in order to bring its north poles closer to the stator’s south poles and it continues to experience a twist in the same direction. The rotor continues to spin in this fashion, always trying to bring its north poles close to the south poles of the stator and its south poles close to the north poles of the stator.

With this type of motor it still has the run capacitor in series with the auxiliary or start winding but then has a second starting capacitor in parallel to the running capacitor. This is where the magic of a good quality high torque single phase motor comes into play. The real trick is to be able to switch out of circuit this additional starting capacitor at just the right moment. If it is switched too late then damage can be caused to the capacitor and if it is switched too soon the motor may not get up to speed and a cycling effect can occur. With effective switching & accurate matching of capacitors to windings, very high starting torques can be achieved reaching levels often between 200% and 250% of nominal torque. This characteristic makes this type of motor more suitable for machine builders with relatively high inertias to move from standstill. There are three main switching methods for CSR motors

Single-Phase Theory

Centrifugal Switch - The old traditional method of removing the start capacitor from the running circuit on CSR motors was to use a mechanical centrifugal switching device that caused that part of the connection to be open circuit upon reaching the pre-determined speed. This device was reasonably effective but brought with it many maintenance &

Because it has but a single alternating current source, a single-phase motor can only produce an alternating field: one that pulls first in one direction, then in the opposite as the polarity of the field switches. A squirrel-cage rotor placed in this field would merely twitch, since there would be no moment upon it. If pushed in one direction, however, it would spin.

System efficiencies and Industry challenges Increasing energy efficiency is mainly driven by politics such as:

System efficiencies and Industry challenges

By: Julijana Ristov of Siemens PLC

global warming and Independence of energy imports

As a consequence, new standards regarding energy efficiency arise:

The industry is currently faced by a number of challenges, some of these being energy costs, which are exerting pressure on companies endeavoring to remain competitive. The use of converter fed motors leverages cost savings of up to 70%.

The efficiencies need to be enhanced from the planning stage through commissioning to operation. Ideally these should be coordinated system components, starting from the investment through to operating data and availability.

Energy efficiency classes for AC/AC-frequency converter (IE)

Energy efficiency classes for drive systems (IES)

The Standard to specify the losses of converter driven motors is still in preparation.

Interesting facts are: •

Two-thirds of the industrial electricity consumption is accounted for by machines driven by electric motors 1

Only approximately 1/5th of new installed drives 2012 were speed controlled 2

Energy costs account for approximately 97% * of the lifecycle costs of an electric motor 3

To address these challenges a New Standard EN 50598-2 is now in place which defines Ecodesign requirements for drive systems and their associated components. What is important for the Standard is that the efficiency class within it is defined at the rated operating point. If you take a Load cycle for a pump with 3880 hours Operating hours per year: We are aware there are widespread regional differences in terms of MEPS* (Minimum Efficiency Performance Standard) and so we have developed a power drive systems (PDS) capable of global deployment which is prepared for future system standards.

10% of the time the pump works at a flow rate of 100%,

30% of the time at a flow rate of 75%,

40% of the time at a flow rate of 50%, and

20% of the time at a flow rate of 25%.

Energy costs equate to 8 ct/kWh. Under these conditions if our drive system is used with a15kW reluctance motor with an inverter it has a payback time of 5 to 13 months. When looking at different applications it is important to consider the integration of drive systems and address some of the challenges the industry is facing. ■

T h e u s e o f C l o u d , W i - F i , G P S a n d Ta b l e t Computers in the Service Industry To grow your business without proportionally increasing your workforce may be difficult in the long term if integration is not seen as a priority!

The use of Cloud, Wi-Fi, GPS and Tablet Computers in the Service Industry By: Gary Downes of Solutions in IT Ltd This article looks to explore technologies that are being used and emerging in the world of computing and how the service industry perceives their usefulness and value. There is no doubt that computerisation in business over the last thirty years has brought many efficiencies and developed a standardised approach to documentation and finance. By creating an internal network or WAN, the computer system and its programs have come in to their own giving you the ability to store data centrally and access the information you need in a timely fashion. Well now the horizon is changing! There has been a seed change in recent years, and new technologies that have grabbed the imagination of their owners and are now in constant use in both our personal and business lives. The first and most popular of these is the development of Android and Apple iOS operating systems for mobile devices, a self-appointed software application environment designed to capture or relay information at source wherever you happen to be.

An example of integrated workflow using EMIR Task Centre. This application combines all of the separate data sources and delivers information to users based on an event taking place or selected timescale. We then come to the Cloud, a largely misunderstood computer concept that develops the idea of true portability even further. In the same way that a company’s employees multi-task in their daily roles, so must the architecture that supports them. For example, if an engineer makes a visit to assess the viability of a project, they may take photographs, write a report of recommendation, develop a sales quote or record the labour and parts used. In this situation, the engineer may use a number of computer devices, a Sat Nav unit to issue the work and direct the engineer, a mobile phone for the photographs and a desktop PC for writing the report. The device itself is not the issue, where the centralised documents are held and retrieved from is. By placing your systems and data in the Cloud, you can access each stage of the documentation process from any device, at anytime, without the need to copy these files from place to place. The latest version is always there waiting for you.

Whether your preference is based on size of the screen, portability or capability, as a consumer you have a wide choice of hardware including multi-functional laptops, tablet devices, smart phones or watches to meet your needs and budgets.

Does Cloud storage of your critical business data worry you? This is a concept that so many business owners have a problem with. The truth is, with the right Cloud storage your important information is secure. In a building that is structurally secure and meets BS standards, on a high specification server that few could afford in a normal business and with firewalls and antivirus applications taking care of the gateway to internet. The security of Cloud systems always outweigh the meagre protection we afford our own internal networks. Did I mention replication? An example of the Apple iPhone being used by Site Engineers using EMIR to record labour time, spare part usage and customer sign off.

A minimum of two data centres hold a mirrored copy of your data in case of internet outage or power failure and a third location holds a daily backup. How does that compare to a hand full of PC’s on a small business server connected to the internet. By the way, nothing stops you from taking a fourth copy of the data daily and storing it in your office!

The question is, how far down the road are you in making this technology work? It is so easy to have disparate systems running throughout your organisation, each working towards efficiency, but how many of them are seamlessly integrated? Without integration to a back office system the information you collect still needs to be manipulated, copy and pasted or printed for it to be of any real use and each of these operations opens the door to delay, input errors and duplication.

The benefits of an integrated business solution in a Cloud environment are: •

Deliver and Capture information at source – using a hand-held device on site to record information that is fed back to your office system in real time means that paperwork is eliminated and invoicing can start earlier.

Everybody has and is familiar with these devices – Everyone has a mobile phone or tablet computer and the software applications are simple to use which can only mean that employees find them easy to adopt without resistance.

Project closure whilst in front of the customer with agreement – the customer may sign daily timesheets, but may need a statement of account for a complete picture to complete the sign off of a project. With mobile technology an engineer can review the entire project with the customer whilst answering any questions that may arise before seeking approval and the ultimate sign-off of the project on screen.

reliability problems after short to medium periods of use providing a serious amount of refurbishment work for motor repair companies. Reliability was also found to be affected by environmental conditions, ambient temperatures etc. This method is still fairly widely used however, by many low cost motor manufacturers. Switching Relay - The centrifugal switching method was then replaced in the 80s and early 90s by some manufacturers with an “SR” or “switching relay”. This was thought to be a more reliable solution but at a much higher price. Unfortunately it was found that this also was not the ultimate in reliability with similar problems as the centrifugal device and added problems through vibration etc. Unfortunately this method had zero refurbishment capability i.e. when it failed it had to be replaced. The end result of this situation was that many manufacturers then reverted back to the centrifugal switch solution.

A picture paints a thousand words – it may not be efficient to have all of your experts in the field and mobile. By taking photographs of damaged or required parts or the situation the equipment resides the purchasing department can make more informed choices about the components to be bought. All images should automatically be held against the job file without the added process of copying photographs from the device to the internal server. Or the mobile phone becomes another island of collected data.

Electronic Switching Device - The third & ultimate switching solution is the “ESD” or “electronic switching device”, this is the modern day equivalent of the switching relay without the reliability or performance problems experienced with either of the first 2 solutions. It brings with it many other benefits not experienced previously as modern day electronics can bring with them intelligence that older mechanical devices cannot. For example the “ESD” can sense the voltage within the auxiliary winding & optimise the switching point based upon changes in this supply, volt drops etc. Modern day electronics, particularly when encapsulated, can also cope far better with environmental condition, ambient temperatures & wider vibration levels. This method can also help with increasing the starting torque even further with figures occasionally exceeding 300% of nominal torque.

WiFi, GPS, on-line or off-line working – Not all of an engineers work will be within range of a mobile signal. Working in confined spaces, remote locations or even when power outage has forced all normal communication to fail, the mobile device offers a way of continued capability until a signal can be restored. Jobs sent to a device are available for update, photographs can be taken and information can be recorded and synchronised to the back office application automatically when the signal is up.

Single phase variations The more serious motor manufacturers are also able to offer many electrical & mechanical variations of single phase motors for example, brake motors, double shafted, special mounting designs, dual voltage eg. 115v/230v combined etc. Another tell-tale sign for quality conscious single phase motor producers is that their capacitors, be it single or double, are mounted within an enlarged terminal box to protect them and their starting devices from environmental & external mechanical damage. ■

Why not consider taking an advertisement in next year’s

In summary, modern technology, both hardware and software is now developed with connectivity and integration in mind. We are no longer at the mercy of standalone applications that hold their own data and create an island of somewhat useful but inaccessible information. With Cloud, we no longer have to be IT experts devoting our time to maintaining and repairing an internal network and server. Develop a business strategy that includes central data storage and an interactive environment between your internal systems. The efficiencies you gain will speak for themselves! ■

Founded in 1981, UK-based Flotronic Pumps enjoys an international reputation for its unique ‘ONE-NUT’ air-operated double-diaphragm pump design which allows rapid disassembly for maintenance and parts replacement. The doublediaphragm design also provides compelling advantages over alternative pump types including ‘self-prime’, ‘dry-run’, ‘dead-head’ and solids handling capabilities. Flotronic’s success also comes from a willingness to be flexible and adaptable, qualities reflected in the company’s ability to accessorise and customise to a client’s precise specification. In fact, the Flotronic product range boasts as many as 60 million variations! There are also upgrades including leak protection, alarm systems, pulsation dampers, counter systems and two and four wheel support trolleys. Flotronic has always been pioneering. The ‘H’ Series and the recently patented Minichem pumps are great examples of the company’s appetite for innovation in the face of new challenges. The Minichem is machined from one solid block of PTFE, a unique concept based on the ‘ONE-NUT’ air-operated double diaphragm design. A key benefit of the ‘ONE-BLOCK’ design is that it avoids the need for separate manifolds. This means no manifold seals and therefore no potential leak paths. The Minichem is ideal for the chemical, pharmaceutical and similar industries, pilot plants (in sampling lines, for example) and as an emergency pump for hazardous chemical recovery. Flotronic’s ‘H’ Series pumps are designed and manufactured to the specific license requirements of 3-A SSI, offering tremendous benefits for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries and any environment or process where maintaining product integrity is paramount. Versatility is key to Flotronic Pumps’ approach to design. The company’s products can be used in almost any application including pumping aggressive chemicals, transferring foodstuffs and providing constant liquid feeds. They are also able to transfer thin or viscous liquids including aggressive chemicals, adhesives, cosmetics, drinks, dyes, foodstuffs, paints, pharmaceuticals, solvents, slurry and water. Compliance-mindful customers will be reassured to know that any pump in the Flotronic range can be made ATEXcompliant for use in atmospheric groups IIA and IIB and also to the more demanding requirements of IIC. Reassurance is also provided in the company’s ISO 9001 certification, recognition of Flotronic’s commitment to high quality process management.

As the recognized world leader in supplying industrial flow management products and services, Flowserve produces industrial and engineered liquid and vacuum pumps, precision mechanical seals, automated and manual quarter turn valves and actuators serving the chemical, power, oil & gas and general industries with innovative technologies.

Applied by low temperature gas-phase deposition of nano-particulate tungsten carbide/tungsten, the coatings offer a unique combination of abrasion, erosion and chemical resistant properties while being tough, ductile and impact resistant.

Grundfos Pumps Ltd are a UK leader in the supply of pumps and pump systems for domestic, commercial building services and process industry applications, as well as being a major supplier to the water supply and treatment industries and provider of packaged fire sets. We are part of the Grundfos Group that employ 17,500 people in sales and production roles in 80 companies worldwide. Founded in Denmark in 1945, the Group now has an annual turnover of £2.6 billion and produces 16 million pumps per year. As only the second sales company to be set up outside of Denmark, we have been in the UK since 1964, and moved to our current premises in Leighton Buzzard in 1972. We employ 165+ staff who are engaged in supporting the sales and marketing effort and who geographically cover the UK and Northern Ireland. Our business head office is in Leighton Buzzard with regional sales offices located in Leigh, Birmingham and Livingston in Scotland. We work very closely with other UK based subsidiary companies, Grundfos Manufacturing who are based in Sunderland, Grundfos Service, our national service provider and Grundfos Watermill who supply shower pumps.

These coatings can be applied to internal surfaces and complex geometries, giving a key advantage over conventional line-of-sight coatings and enabling design engineers to consider radical new-part design possibilities. The properties of the coating give rise to exceptional wear and erosion resistance in pump applications, and operational efficiency can be improved on positive displacement pumps, drilling mud pumps, reciprocating pumps, progressive cavity pumps, multi-stage centrifugal pumps, lobe pumps and vane pumps. Typical pump applications for Hardide coatings include impellers, housing, vanes, shafts, cylinders, plungers, neck/wear rings, rotors and sleeve bearings. In addition to hardness, wear and chemical resistance properties, the other key attributes for these uses are acid resistance, zero porosity, and antigalling. Hardide offers a range of standard coatings and our technical and engineering teams can work in partnership with customers to develop custom coating solutions for the most challenging of erosion, wear, abrasion, corrosion, galling or fretting problems.
