BPMA Activity Highlights 2016/17 Brian Huxley Wins Prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award

An accomplished diplomat, well known for his calm and measured approach, he is recognised throughout the UK and Europe as a true Ambassador for the UK Pump Industry.

The final awards presentation at the annual Pump Industry Awards Ceremony is always eagerly anticipated by those in attendance, to an individual who has made a significant and consistent contribution the pump industry over the duration of their working career.

As a further mark of the BPMA’s appreciation for this outstanding dedication, its Board and Council also presented Brian with a Plaque commemorating his 24 years of loyal and unbroken service to the Association. This presentation was made by BPMA President, and Managing Director of Grundfos Pumps, Peter Reynolds, at the recent BPMA Council Meeting. After 24 years as a Director of the BPMA Brian has decided to retire on 30th June 2017, to spend more time with his loving wife Ann. I am sure you will all join me in wishing Brian a very long & healthy retirement.

This year was no exception, and with 24 years of dedicated service to the pump industry through his Directorship of the BPMA, the recipient was indeed a worthy and extremely popular winner. A spontaneous standing ovation, lasting for several long minutes, took place when his name was announced at the Gala Awards Dinner on 23rd March, at the Crowne Plaza, Heythrop Park.

Bower Bows Out and Hollins Hops On-board

Brian Huxley is a qualified Training Officer, whose career started in the early 1960’s as a commercial apprentice with GLYNWED. He went on to hold several training positions, before leaving the company in 1974 to become Group Training Officer for METCOM – a Federation of Mechanical and Engineering Trades. He held that position until 1978 when he was promoted to Regional Manager.

After holding the position for the past 10 years, John Bower of Flowserve retired from the role of BPMA Technical Committee Chairman in the summer of 2016. As part of this important industry role John also held positions within British Standards Institution as BSI MCE/6 Chairman and as ISO TC 115 SC 1 Chairman. He also sat on many technical committees within Europump as well as updating BPMA Council on various technical matters throughout the past decade. John has been a significant figure in the pump industry who has worked tirelessly for the benefit of all, and he will be sorely missed.

From his humble beginnings at METCOM he progressed to Regional General Manager, then Assistant Director, then Director and eventually to take on the role of Managing Director. In 1993, amongst his other roles within METCOM, Brian was also asked to take on a Trade Association which was at that time operating with a part time General Secretary and a part time Technical officer. It was from there that our recipient began the restructuring of the BPMA.

The supporting photograph pictures BPMA Director & Chief Executive Steve Schofield wishing John a long, happy and healthy retirement, whilst offering a card and token of gratitude with other members of the BPMA Technical Committee. The person replacing John Bower in this important role is John Hollins, who holds the position of Engineering Manager of SPP Pumps. Although he has significantly large shoes to fill, John has been a member of the BPMA Technical Committee for a number of years already and so is well versed with the workings of this important group. He is currently responsible for all SPP Pumps products and technical risk. This includes the design, development and testing of new products as well as engineered to order projects with values in excess of £4million. He also has responsibility for risk assessing new products for CE marking and reviewing new designs. He is a member of various industry technical committees and sits on several standards writing working groups for both ISO and BSI.

As a Director of the BPMA, he has been responsible for introducing and creating many of the services that are available to members today, such as the Buyers Guide, Newsletters, BPMA Training and the World Pump Report. In 1998 he insisted that the BPMA employed a full time Technical Director, to oversee and further develop that important aspect of the Association’s service offering. Under his Directorship the BPMA became one of the first Trade Associations to have a website and to offer membership to suppliers of the industry, something that has been copied by many others since. In 2009, in order to safeguard the interests of both members and staff, he instigated the BPMA’s transition to a limited company.

Commenting on the changes, Steve Schofield of the BPMA said, “John’s commitment to the role over the past 10 years has been nothing short of tremendous, and we are enormously grateful for all he has achieved on behalf of the BPMA and of course the wider pump industry. We wish him a wonderful retirement. But at the same time, we welcome John Hollins to the role, who I know will continue the important work of the BPMA Technical Committee, as we navigate the unchartered waters of Brexit”. ■

Over the years, he stabilised the finances and developed a healthy balance sheet, enabling the role of BPMA Director to be passed onto his successor, Steve Schofield, in 2013. ■

BPMA Activity Highlights 2016/17 Individual winners

BPMA Annual Golf Day 2017 The 2017 BPMA Golf day took place this year on 25th May, on the Bainbridge Course at Heythrop Park, located 12 miles north of Oxford in the Cotswolds. The 7088 yard par 72 course meandering over ridges and through valleys studded with ancient woodland, lakes, and streams proved a challenge for our 16 teams. The day began with the course bathed in glorious sunshine, something players from recent BPMA golf days were unprepared for, as rain, and on occasions torrential rain has become something of the norm. Sensing this our friends at Croner sponsored the event with free umbrellas for all our players, something that surely had an influence on the weather!

Longest Drive: Jonathan Grace, Flowserve SIHI ‘A’

Nearest the Pin: Jamie Stringer, Calpeda 'A'

and last but not least...

With so many teams entered this year and to speed things up slightly players teed off from both the first and tenth tees at 10-minute intervals. Following an excellent dinner served in the Enstone Suite overlooking the landscaped gardens Steve Schofield , BPMA Director & Chief Executive thanked all of the sponsors for their continued support of this annual event. Ken Hall, Managing Director of Calpeda UK then proceeded to give out the individual team scores and to thank all the players for making this year’s event such a huge success and announcing the winners for 2017.

BPMA Activity Highlights 2016/17 excellent, all contributing to a truly great evening – and a fitting tribute to the BPMA.”

75 Years Celebrated in Style

David Hawley, Motors & Generators Business Unit Manager, ABB – “We were really pleased to be able to support the BPMA 75th Anniversary celebration by bringing along some of our key clients for what was a superb evening. Our colleagues and guests had a great time, catching up with many current and old contacts from within the pump industry. The whole evening, reception, dinner and particularly entertainment meant it was a really memorable evening.”

To help celebrate three quarters of a century serving the British pump industry, the BPMA staged a special Anniversary Dinner and Dance. Held on the evening of 6th October at the Heythrop Park Resort in Oxfordshire, on the outskirts of the picturesque Cotswolds, the event was attended by some of the leading companies associated with this important industry sector. Sponsored by Grundfos, Wilo and WEG, and presented as the highlight of the BPMA's year-long celebratory activities, the evening started with a Champagne Reception in the Grand Hall of the old Manor House, accompanied by live music. This was followed by the sumptuous Anniversary Dinner in the Enstone Suite, along with more live music, and dancing late into the night. BPMA Director and CEO, Steve Schofield, commented, “We were delighted to acknowledge the past endeavours of the Association with a wonderful night of celebration, and to herald the next 75 years of BPMA service to industry. The musical showcase by West End 2U was truly exceptional, as was the wonderful sound created by the Swinging Little Big Band.

Dale Croker, Managing Director, KSB Limited – “On behalf of KSB Limited and all our staff members who attended the Anniversary Dinner, a big thank you to the organisers and the sponsors for a superb evening which was thoroughly enjoyed by all of us. Great venue, great food, great entertainment and equally great company; what more could one ask for? The prestigious event was a fitting celebration of the BPMA’s milestone and one which KSB is proud to have been associated with. The hard work and valuable impact the BPMA continues to provide in the pump industry deserves to be celebrated in such a fashion. We’re looking forward to the next milestone!” David Rozee, Managing Director, Triark Pumps – “We had a great night at the BPMA 75th Anniversary Dinner and it was an honour and privilege for us to be dancing the night away (while doing business) with some of the industry’s top brass. Joining the BPMA this past year has already proved itself to be a positive move for us and we wish the BPMA every success while they move ever closer to their 100th year.”

He added, “The evening was a joy to host and on behalf of the BPMA and all those in attendance, I would again thank our three sponsors for their kind and generous support”. BPMA staff members have been overwhelmed by the reaction to the dinner, which without exception, and against the backdrop of ‘Brexit uncertainty’, has been extremely complementary. Here is just a small sample of the feedback and comments so far received:-

Julijana Ristov, Business Manager, Siemens – “Thank you for organising such a wonderful event last week. It was our pleasure to support the BPMA and celebrate, together with our customers, suppliers and colleagues its milestone 75th Anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening – the food, entertainment and overall organisation was exceptional, making it a great networking event.”

Russell McCabe, Sales Manager, WEG UK – “On behalf of WEG and its guests, can I just say how much we enjoyed Thursday evening – superb hospitality and entertainment in a wonderful setting. We were honoured to be part of the BPMA’s 75th Anniversary celebrations.”

Alex Onslow, Technical Director, Flowserve SiHi – “A great night with great food & entertainment, great company and a great achievement by the BPMA in reaching its 75th Anniversary. Having been around for three quarters of a century helping engineers within our industry maximise their endeavours, let’s make sure they continue to do so for the next 75 years.” ■

Richard Harden, Managing Director, Wilo UK – “As a long standing member of the BPMA, we were one of the first to support the idea of a celebration dinner to acknowledge its 75th year, and we were proud to have been involved. The venue, hospitality, entertainment and overall organisation was

Incorporating


BPMA Activity Highlights 2016/17 Technical File, CE Marking, Declaration of Conformity and other certification requirements, along with the provision of a detailed information folder, a follow-up written report is then submitted.

BPMA Launches EU Directives Advisory Service Do you know whether the documentation supporting the placement of your products onto the UK and European market is legally compliant?

One company that has already taken advantage of this advisory service is AODD Pump manufacturer, Flotronic Pumps Ltd. With its comprehensive range of pumps serving a broad application base, from acids to adhesives, paints to petrochemicals and pharmaceuticals to food & drink, the company was keen to ensure that its compliance obligations were being thoroughly met.

Not being legally compliant in these matters can lead to large fines for the company. But worse still, if a non-compliant product leads to an injury or death, it can result in prosecution or even imprisonment for company executives. The BPMA has for many years provided generic information to its members on EU Directives which specifically affect the pump industry, either through guidance documents, position papers or more general information given out at meetings. As such, the BPMA believes it is the only UK organisation that specifically addresses the effects of EU legislation on suppliers of liquid pumps.

The review was initiated by Peter Wheal, Flotronic Pumps’ Chief Engineer, who considered the use of the BPMA Advisory Scheme to have been beneficial in explaining pump industry practices, and how applicable directives and standards might develop going forward. He said, “Awareness of possible additional requirements as pump products encompass more control and hazard prevention capabilities had been a useful discussion point for us.” He continued, “Guidance on when directives will change helps to save cost on printing, but the BPMA advice may also avoid the need, and additional cost, for external support from Notified Bodies and The CE Marking Association.”

Building on this important ‘information transfer’ the BPMA has introduced a new ‘advisory service’ which will help companies to achieve and maintain the correct CE Marking procedures and documentation. Through this new service, the BPMA will:•

Site visit your premises in the UK

Carry out an Evaluation of your on-site Technical File, CE Marking, Declaration of Conformity, and other compliance procedures

Provide an information folder

Offer specific advice and information

Submit a follow-up written report

John Bower, who carried out the BPMA Advisory Scheme audit at Flotronic Pumps’ facility in Bolney, West Sussex in February 2017 was delighted to state that, “Flotronic had diligently followed compliance processes, in particular with Technical Dossiers, Hazard Assessment, Testing, Product Safety and IoMs.” The BPMA actively promotes a “Buy with confidence from BPMA members” ethos and this new service aims to fully support and enhance that approach.

The follow-up report will consist of a summary, indicating compliant and non-compliant findings during the visit. It will also advise on any appropriate measures and actions to be taken to ensure products are legally placed on the market within the UK and across Europe.

If you are interested in this service please contact Steve Smith at BPMA on 0121 601 6691 or e-mail s.smith@bpma.org.uk ■

The cost of this service will be £1,000.00 + VAT and expenses (for BPMA Members), and should further visits or specific Directive information be required, these will be priced separately.

BPMA and European Sealing Association sign mutual cooperation agreement

The BPMA actively promotes a “Buy with confidence from BPMA members” ethos and this new service aims to fully support this approach.

Established in 1941, the British Pump Manufacturers’ Association (BPMA) is a not-for-profit trade association representing the interests of UK and Irish manufacturers and suppliers of liquid pumps and other pump related equipment.

If you are interested in this service please contact Steve Smith at BPMA on 0121 601 6691 or e-mail s.smith@bpma.org.uk ■

Established in 1992, the European Sealing Association is a not-for-profit trade association representing the interests of manufacturers and suppliers of sealing devices and materials across Europe. Recognising the core values of each organisation and the fact that that they already follow very similar technical, standardisation, training, energy and environmental protocols across their respective product areas, it has been determined that a great deal of mutual benefit can be derived from such an undertaking.

Flotronic Pumps takes advantage of New Directives Advisory Service The first audit under the BPMA’s new Advisory Service offers thumbs up. Not being legally compliant when placing products onto the UK or European market can lead to large fines for the company. But worse still, if a non-compliant product leads to injury or death, it can result in prosecution or even imprisonment for company executives.

The agreement will allow the exchange information between the two associations in areas of common interest affecting pumps, pump sets and sealing products , which could include but will not be restricted to: •

Technical issues

The BPMA has for many years provided generic information to its members on EU Directives which specifically affect the pump industry, either through guidance documents, position papers or more general information given out at meetings.

Standards (UK, European and International)

Building on this important ‘information transfer’ yet further, the BPMA now offers an ‘advisory service’ which is designed to help suppliers of liquid pumps achieve and maintain the correct compliance procedures and documentation. Comprising a site visit, a full appraisal of a company’s

Legislation information (European)

Energy and Environmental issues across Europe

Training Programmes (and their respective promotion)

Having been approved by the Council of each organisation, the agreement was formally signed in the Summer of 2016 by BPMA President, Mr Peter Reynolds of Grundfos Pumps UK and ESA Chairman, Mr John Morton of John Crane. ■

BPMA Activity Highlights 2016/17 BPMA maintains pressure for market surveillance delivery

Latest Apprenticeship Levy News published by BPMA in September 2016

Market Surveillance is a key element of a fair and efficient single market. Its role is to ensure that products placed on the community market comply with EU regulations and do not pose any safety or environmental threats for users and the public at large.

The way apprenticeships are funded is changing. The apprenticeship levy is a new tax on businesses that will be introduced to help support the government's target of 3 million apprenticeships by 2020. The levy will be paid at a rate of 0.5% by employers with a pay bill of more than £3 million per year

This should ensure a level playing field and fair competition within the market as well as safeguarding the coherence of the European regulatory framework, the consistency of which depends on effective enforcement.

Following extensive consultation with employers and training providers, the Government have published on 25 October 2016 the final funding policy that will take effect from May 2017 when the new Apprenticeship Levy is introduced. Details of the new register of apprenticeship training providers have also been announced. The following adjustments have been made to the funding policy since the Governments proposals were announced in August which will help ensure that the reforms benefit more employers, providers and apprentices.

However, there continues to be evidence of illegal pump imports entering the UK from other countries (particularly Asia) that do not meet the strict demands of the EU Energy Related Products Directive (ErP Directive). As such, the BPMA continues to press the National Measurement Regulatory Office (NMRO), in their role as UK Market Surveillance Authority, to take all appropriate action to ensure that such illegal pumps are removed from the market, and that all future imports are curtailed with immediate effect.

The key features announced were:

On 7th December 2016 , BPMA representatives again met with NMRO Executives at their headquarters in London and again conveyed its Members’ frustration that to-date no discernible progress has been made. This is despite numerous previous meetings between the two organisations, and several written assurances that market surveillance is regarded as an important issue. During this meeting, the NMRO confirmed that several ‘suspect’ circulator pumps had now been purchased in order to be tested, although no information could be given as the source of these pumps, as this activity was another department’s responsibility. The results of the testing were initially due to be published early in 2017 but unfortunately it now looks more likely to be May 2017. One of the key concerns raised by the BPMA is that Circulator Pumps were the first to be regulated under the ErP Directive, with many other and far more complicated pumps and pump sets to follow. It is therefore of imperative that the correct procedures are put in place now, to ensure effective surveillance across the full breadth of regulated products. The fear being that with Brexit on the horizon, the UK could become the dumping ground for cheap, non-compliant and potentially dangerous pumps. Following this meeting, a full written appraisal was sent to Mark Prisk MP, who in his capacity of the Prime Minister’s Trade & Investment Envoy, Nordic & Baltic Nations, had previously been advised of this matter by both the BPMA and its member company, Grundfos Pumps.

Higher funding for STEM apprenticeship frameworks and higher pricing of apprenticeship standards to support improved quality, and greater flexibility to train those with prior qualifications;

Longer period of time for employers to spend funds in their digital account, now with 24 months before they expire, an increase from the original proposal of just 18 months;

A commitment to introducing the ability for employers to transfer digital funds to other employers in their supply chains, sector or to Apprenticeship Training Agencies in 2018;

90% contribution from government to the cost of training for employers that will not pay the levy;

100% contribution from government to the cost of training for small employers that will not pay the levy and who take on apprentices who are 16 to 18 years old;

£1,000 each from government to employers and training providers when they take on 16 to 18-year-olds;

Help for training providers to adapt to the new, simpler funding model through an additional cash payment equal to 20% of the funding band maximum where they train 16 to 18-year-olds on frameworks; and

A simplified version of the current system of support for people from disadvantaged areas to ensure the opportunity to undertake an apprenticeship is open to everyone, no matter where in England they live, their background or family circumstances. ■

As a result, Mark has in turn communicated the importance of this issue directly to The Rt Hon Greg Clark MP, Secretary of State, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, whose intervention is to be welcomed. The BPMA will follow up on this communication to the Secretary of State, in the hope that all appropriate parties can put in place the means by which to tackle any breach in these important regulations. In the meantime, should you come across any pump product that you believe is in breach of the ErP Directive, please contact the BPMA with the details? ■

BPMA Activity Highlights 2016/17 this is not always straightforward. Involvement of third parties and the need to meet possible changing future requirements can all affect the sizing of a pump. Over design on parameters is very commonplace.

How much will your pump really cost you? When it comes to specifying pumping equipment, many companies, particularly those under increasing pressure to cut costs, could actually be making decisions that will cost them more in the long run. In this article, Steve Schofield, Director and Chief Executive of the British Pump Manufacturer’s Association (BPMA), explains how lifecycle costing can help to reveal the true cost of a pump.

If every party involved in specifying a pump adds on even a small percentage to their sizing estimate, the end result can be a highly inefficient pump. The extra cost, both in terms of running and maintaining the pump can be very high over the life of the plant. One survey of 4,000 installations showed that water pumps typically operate with a shortfall in efficiency of between 12.5 and 20 per cent because they are incorrectly specified. The situation is worse for pumps that handle more unusual or complex media, such as chemicals or pharmaceuticals.

The need to cut costs wherever possible is an increasingly familiar requirement for engineers charged with ensuring the continued smooth operation of plant on a limited budget. When it comes to pumping systems, although choosing the lowest cost option may seem like the best short term solution to achieving cost savings, it will almost always result in additional costs being incurred that could have been avoided by spending a little more time and money during the specification and design stage.

To help with changes in duty and assist with energy reduction many pump manufacturers are now promoting the use of Variable Speed Driven pump systems, frequency drive being the most prominent system used. By using VSD’s you in effect combine electrical and mechanical principles.

According to statistics from the US Department of Energy’s Office of Industrial Technologies, pumping systems can account for between 25 and 50% of the total energy consumed by certain industrial processes. Add to this the need for ongoing service, repairs and maintenance throughout a typical service life of 20 years and pumps quickly begin to represent a substantial area of expense.

The addition of the latest controls or ancillary equipment can often help boost efficiency and enable pumps to meet changes in demand at a fraction of the cost of building a new system from scratch. In some cases, simply upgrading a pumping system can result in energy savings of up to 50%. The importance of good design

The expectations of some pump users can be unrealistic when it comes to the cost of pump ownership, in many cases they focus too much on initial outlay, opting for the least cost alternative, which is not always actually the best solution for the application.

Maintenance and energy consumption represent by far the two most significant costs throughout the life of a pump. The answer to minimizing these costs lies in ensuring a welldesigned pumping system, where the pump is specified as correctly as possible to the demands of the application. The energy consumption and efficiency of a pump is closely linked to the way that a pumping system is designed and operated.

So what is the answer? The BPMA and many of its members are keen to emphasise the importance of life cycle costing (LCC) as a vital part of any pump purchasing and ownership strategy. Life cycle costing takes into account many factors, all of which impact on the total cost of owning and operating a pump, which includes much more than just the initial outlay.

Every pump manufacturer can, or should, supply characteristic curves for their equipment illustrating pump performance under given conditions. These curves demonstrate the inter-relationship between discharge capacity, pump head, power and operating efficiency.

A pump’s life cycle cost encompasses the total overall costs that accumulate throughout the life of a pump, from installation, energy consumption, operation, maintenance and down time, even environmental and through to the final decommissioning and disposal of the pump.

The BPMA and its members have been involved in the writing of the following Europump guides to assist users with their selection and operation of pumping equipment:

By carrying out an analysis of the costs that are likely to be incurred throughout the operational life of the pump, it is possible to objectively compare all the potential options at the outset. Lifecycle costing can be useful not only for selecting new equipment but also for justifying the upgrade of existing systems. Throughout the lifetime of a pumping system, it is unlikely that the same operating conditions will continue to prevail.

Factors such as the addition of new equipment upstream of the pump or changes in production techniques can all cause variations in pump duty away from the pumps ‘Best Efficiency Point’ (BEP). This is the point where pump capacity and head pressure combine to provide the maximum efficiency performance from the pump. If the pump is incorrectly sized and is operating too far from the BEP, wear and tear can occur which can shorten its operational life.

Looking at the possible energy savings in the entire pumping system the BPMA in 2010 created the CPSA scheme (Certified Pump System Auditor). This is a new industry specific professional qualification developed by an established and highly regarded body within the industry. The objective of the scheme is to help improve the levels of professionalism in the sector by creating a universally recognised and respected industry ‘standard' for individuals assessing the performance of a pumping system.

An oversized pump, for example, will not only be inefficient, but will also cost more to maintain because operating too far to the left of its performance curve puts an extra strain on pump bearings and seals. On the other hand, a pump which is undersized for the duty may end up running too quickly, which may potentially ruin the product being pumped and also prematurely wear out parts of the pump. Also its efficiency will be affected, resulting in excessive energy consumption.

The CPSA Scheme training includes:

Although a pump should be sized to an application, achieving

BPMA Activity Highlights 2016/17 How to get it right – some top tips from the experts

carried into the pump. When these bubbles encounter zones of higher pressure in the pump, they will collapse violently, resulting in a phenomenon known as cavitation which can severely damage the pump.

The following are just some of the key factors that should be considered when specifying a pump, which could help ensure it delivers optimum performance and economy throughout its service life.

When designing a pump system, it is essential to ensure that the available pressure on the pump inlet is greater than the pressure required within the pump to avoid the occurrence of cavitation.

1. What sort of pump do you need? There are many different types of pump available, each of which is suited to particular applications. The two most popular types are Centrifugal pumps and Positive Displacement pumps. Centrifugal pumps are generally suited to fast flowing or low viscosity liquid applications where the pressure is relatively constant. They perform most efficiently and cost effectively when operating at or near their Best Efficiency Point (BEP). Positive Displacement pumps, on the other hand, are particularly ideal for high viscosity applications, as they are better able to maintain a constant rate of flow.

3. Is the pump positioned in the correct place? Where a pump is positioned within a pipeline can also greatly affect its performance. As well as determining the amount of pressure available, the positioning of a pump can also affect the quality of the product being pumped. Too much or too little distance in the pipeline before the pump, for example, can lead to friction losses which can affect the flow rate of the substance being pumped, which in turn can affect the efficiency of the pump. The presence of pipe fittings, such as elbow joints, filters or other in-line equipment, can also affect the flow rate of a substance to the pump.

It may also be necessary to consider what type of material the pump is manufactured from. Hygienic processes in the pharmaceutical or food and beverage industries, for example, are subject to the strict requirements of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which call for equipment to be manufactured from 316L stainless steel.

4. Don’t just purchase on cost alone When it comes to selecting a pump, cheapest is by no means best. Be particularly careful where reductions in the purchase price have been achieved by cuts in supplier back-up and expertise. Ultimately, the most cost-effective installation will be the one where the supplier can offer good technical backup, an established track record and a reputation for highreliability products based on sound research and development.

Information on selection and which pump is best suited /used on different applications can also be found within the BPMA buyers guide available on the BPMA website. 2. Is there sufficient pressure for the pump to work effectively?

5. Always take the pump manufacturers’ advice!

The efficiency and operation of centrifugal pumps in particular can be affected by the Net Positive Suction Head (NPSH) available. Basically, this is the amount of pressure that is required to prevent the liquid being pumped from vaporising inside the pump.

It’s surprising how many customers don’t take advantage of the expertise available from the pump manufacturer when it comes to ways of getting the best performance from their pumps. After all, nobody knows more about how to get the best out a pump than the company that built it. ■

If the liquid vaporises, bubbles can be formed which will be

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive 2012/19/EU (WEEE2)

Many topics were discussed such as;

The WEEE2 Directive (Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment) will come into force in the UK in August 2018.

pumps with couplings and pumps without couplings

domestic pumps & industrial pumps

Under the existing WEEE Directive, pumps (other than garden pumps) have NOT been included within scope. However, this first revision of the Directive has now brought into play many products that were previously out of scope, including pumps.

bare shaft pumps

motors and who is responsible for the motor

Following a meeting between BPMA, BEIS (Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy) and the Environment Agency in July 2016, which was convened to clarify whether ‘pumps’ should be within the scope of WEEE2, it was agreed that the BPMA would produce and submit its own ‘position paper’. This course of action was determined primarily because BEIS had been overwhelmed with the amount of items that required clarification, but also because BPMA was best placed of draft such a document, given its in depth knowledge of the subject matter.

The conclusion was that the pump industry needed to come up with a set of principles / scenarios and then have groups of pumps which will be in WEEE2 and out of WEEE2. Both BEIS and the Environmental Agency said they could not afford to have a pumps/pump sets under dispute with manufacturers. They needed something that was simple that could be used by all. Accordingly the BPMA Working Group met again and produced amongst other things the Flow Chart below to assist in clarifying compliance issues.

As such, and having formed a dedicated Working Group to fully assess the Commission Guidance documents for both domestic and non-domestic pumps, the BPMA produced and submitted its proposals.

Regrettably at a further meeting in May 2017 the BPMA proposals were again rejected and accordingly further guidance from Government is now awaited. ■

Unfortunately, due to a number of factors, the initial draft of the ‘position paper’ was rejected by BEIS & the Environment Agency and so the BPMA were asked to revisit certain aspects and re-submit a second draft in due course. This was duly done but our revised position paper was not accepted at a further meeting in December 2016 and neither the UK Government or Environmental Agency would give a blanket exclusion on pumps for WEEE2.

“Buy With Confidence – and enjoy peace of mind” – a message promoted by BPMA in March 2017 The UK pump industry, through the auspices of the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA), has over recent years been working closely with the UK Government and the European Commission, along with its various consultants, to implement a range of pump related legislative programmes dealing with product safety, environmental impact and energy reduction.

A revision of the Machinery Directive is ongoing.The consultation process in the framework of the evaluation study is complementary to the European Commission open public consultation which was launched in September 2016.

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/

Once the consultation activities have ended, the consultant will aggregate the results into a first findings report which is expected to be issued by the end of January 2017. The study’s conclusions will be presented in the final report which is expected to be published in April 2017. From information currently received it is unlikely that any of the proposed changes will affect the pump industry.

ATEX (EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES) old 94/9/EC new 2014/34/EU (After 2016) No new news: Reiterate final comment

One area which members need to be aware of is the Harmonised standard EN809, discussions are ongoing to make this fully international through ISO.

The first edition of Guidelines on the application of Directive 2014/34/EU on equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres (ATEX) was issued in April 2016. As a reminder, the ATEX Directive became applicable as of 20 April 2016.

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.

On 8 April. A new list of harmonised standards under Directive 2014/34/EU related to equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres (ATEX) was published in the EU Official Journal on 12 August (OJEU 12.08.2016 C 293/52). A 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 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.

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

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

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

“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)”

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.

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.

The Lisbon Treaty and New Legislative Framework will cause substantial changes to manufacturers in the future.

Member States need to transpose this directive into national legislation by 19 April 2016.

Due to the Lisbon Treaty Articles will change from 95 to 114 for manufacturers and 137 to 153 for end users.

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 assist manufacturers in adapting to the principles of the New Legislative Framework

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

The Europump Atex Guideline is available reflects recent changes.

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.

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

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

non- electrical goods such as pumps. Pump manufacturers can now work completely to these two new standards or if they do not wish to change their documentation yet and still work to the EN 13463 series they have until 31st October 2019.

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.

Other changes from the old 94/9/EC to the new 2014/ 34/EU have now been reflected in the Europump revised Atex Guidelines Part 1 & 2 and all members should be aware of these changes. Copies available from S Schofield at the BPMA

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

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

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.

Members are required to use the new number as of April 2016. Following the approval of the final version of the Guide to the application of the LVD 2014/35/EU by the Working Party, the Guide was published on the European Commission website on 21 November. The revised guidelines introduce a number of clarifications, including the clear exclusion of medium-voltage and high-voltage products from the scope of the LVD

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.

EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility DIRECTIVE) 89/336/EEC Old 2004/108/EC new 2014/30/EU after 2016 No Further News

Electro Magnetic Fields Directive (EMFD) Directive 2013/35/EU (New Number) No further update 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).

The final draft EMCD Guide was circulated by the EMC Working Group on the revision of the EMCD Guide on 4 May. The Commission intends to proceed with an internal consultation on the revised draft which would then be subject to the approval of the EMC Working Party at their next meeting on 10 June 2016.

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 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.

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).

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. Members are required to use the new number as of April 2016.

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).

BPMA Activity Highlights 2016/17 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.

continued from previous page

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.

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

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 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, 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.

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 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.

The British Construction Products’ Regulation Guide published by the British Association for Construction Products is available from S Schofield.

Construction Products Regulation (CPR) – Revision No further update 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 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. As a reminder, two external studies are currently being carried out to feed into the Fitness Check on the Construction Sector: one on internal market and energy efficiency legislation, the other on environment, health and safety legislation. A final validation workshop presenting the findings of both studies will take place on 26 May 2016. The Fitness Check Staff Working Document, which will encompass both the results of the consultation and the external studies, is expected to be issued by the end of 2016. On 1 July 2013, the Construction Products Regulation No 305/2011 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.

BPMA Activity Highlights 2016/17 methods to be used in conjunction with national arrangements

continued from previous page

There are however disadvantages: 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.

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

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

The Goal

In its 2017 work plan the European Commission has announced a REFIT revision of the Drinking Water Directive (98/83/EC). The purpose is to draft a roadmap/inception impact assessment presenting different options to revise the DWD in the first half of 2017. The result of this evaluation should be available first quarter 2017. The legislative proposal for the revision is planned for later in 2017.

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. 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.

Manfred Fuchs (DG Growth) confirmed that the Commission has withdrawn mandate M/136 in recognition of the repeated failed attempt to revise existing harmonised standards regarding construction products in contact with water intended for human consumption. Mr Fuchs has circulated his proposal for the replacement of M/136 by breaking it up into – currently – three smaller standards: for metallic, cementitious and organic materials.

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.

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 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.

New Legislative Framework (NLF) No further update

Developments to date

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.

It does not cover all products

It is now reported that:

DRINKING WATER DIRECTIVE 99/83/EC

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.

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.

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

It covers only national regulations

The 4 MS Initiative

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

The updated Blue Guide on the implementation of EU product rules (English version) was published on 4 April 2016. The translation of this document into the other official EU languages is expected to be ready in the coming months. Most comments have been taken into account in the new version, in particular the concept of placing on the market, repaired products and “spare parts”, transitional arrangements for the EU Declaration of Conformity (DoC), importers’ obligations, use of harmonised standards to address risks/risk assessment.

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

The adapted directives will be re-numbered and will have to be transposed into national law within 2 years

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.

Market Surveillance Whilst there is no further news emanating from Europe in the UK in July The BPMA involved the MP Mark Prisk who is responsible for the Scandinavian regions. A further meeting was arranged with the NMRO in December 2016. Unfortunately testing of purchased pumps is only just starting. A second letter was subsequently sent to Greg Clark MP Mark Prisk and a reply has now been received stating that the testing of these pumps and possible outcome could take a further 12 months. BPMA now discussing its next action.

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). 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).

As a reminder, within the BPMA the issue of non compliant circulator pumps being sold onto the UK market still continues. This issue has been raised with the National Measurements office in October 2013.

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.

A recent letter circulated to BPMA members by the NMO advised. •

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

ENVIRONMENT WEEE AND ROHS DIRECTIVES 2012/19/EU & 2011/65/EU On RoHS

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 European Commission and EU Member States (RoHS Expert Group) are currently evaluating the Öko-Institut recommendations on 29 renewal requests (Pack 9). Exemptions related to lighting equipment were addressed in September. Most lead-related exemptions, including lead in alloying elements, copper and solders, were discussed on 15 & 16 December 2016. The cross-industry platform had the opportunity to present industry concerns on Öko-Institut suggestions for rewording of exemptions and shorter review periods. The Commission will now decide whether to renew exemptions or not and, accordingly, prepare the draft delegated acts in early 2017. In line with the better regulation principle, the Commission is likely to launch a 4-week public consultation on draft delegated acts. In addition, exemptions are likely to be renewed for the new equipment in scope (category 11) for a period of 5 years as from July 2019.

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.

As a reminder, exemptions remain valid until the Commission takes a decision, at the earliest in spring 2017, even if they have already expired. The European Commission will table a proposal to revise the scope of the RoHS2 Directive. The inter-service consultation on the draft legislative proposal is now finalised and will be published in early 2017. Discussions will then start in the European Parliament and the Council. According to the draft proposal, this review tackles a series of problems that cannot be solved by exemptions and guidance:

Dual-use items No further news The European Commission published its proposal for a revised regulation on dual-use items on 28 September. The proposal aims at addressing new security risks, such as an emerging trade in cyber-surveillance technology and related risks to security and human rights, while relieving some administrative burden from the companies concerned. It includes a revised annex with a detailed description of the goods on the so-called EU Control List. The proposal covers ten broad categories of goods, technologies and software, including nuclear materials and equipment as well as special materials such as certain chemicals and related equipment.

1. the ban on secondary market operations (e.g. reselling, second-hand market) for new-in-scope equipment (a compliance date will be specified for newly-in-scope EEE and article 2.2 will be deleted); 2. the impossibility to repair with spare parts new-in-scope equipment once legally placed on the market before July

2019 (an exemption will be specified in Article 4.4 in line with other product groups); 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.

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.

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

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 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 categories (Parliament agreed 5 categories), but a greater

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. 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. On WEEE 2012/19/EU WEEE2 Directive There will be no link to the RoHs directive 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. The BPMA position paper was rejected by Defra and the Environment Agency and a meeting was called for December 2016. From this meeting it was requested that the pump industry create a set of principles / scenarios from which we could indicate which pump would be in WEEE2 and out of WEEE2. BPMA staff and 7 of its members met again in February 2017. The conclusion was again to go back to the principles of Directive 2012/19/EU and refer to these in a decision tree or flow chart. As an industry we feel we have supported Defra, BEIS and the Environment Agency in trying to come up with a document – statement with regards to Liquid Pumps to ensure that our industry fully understands and recognises its responsibilities. Unfortunately if the decision tree / flow chart is not acceptable then we do not know what else to suggest and

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 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. On registration, the first deadline expired on 30 November 2010 for substances produced or imported in large volumes as well as certain volumes of carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic (CMR) substances and chemicals that are toxic to the aquatic environment. 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.

CHEMICALS (REACH) Amendment of directives 67/548/EEC & 199/45/EC Candidate list Five EU Member States proposed to include new substances in the REACH Candidate list: it now contains 169 substances. ECHA launched a public consultation that runs until 21 October 2016 (see the list of substances here). The next Candidate list update is expected early 2017. Reports are expected in June 2016.

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.

Authorisation process

Further Guidance:

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) published its 7th recommendation to include further substances in the authorisation list (Annex XIV REACH) in early November: it recommended 9 new substances. Compared to the draft recommendation of November 2015, the 2 anhydride substances (Hexahydrophthalic anhydride – HHPA, and Methylhexahydrophthalic anhydride – MHHPA) were left out of the final list. This is due to a change in their priority after the public consultation. However, these 2 substances will be reconsidered in the future. As regards lead compounds, 4 substances used in the manufacturing process of batteries remain on the priority list. Although the industry called for granting exemptions specifically for the manufacture of batteries, no exemption has been recommended.

EU INTEGRATED POLLUTION PREVENTION AND CONTROL DIRECTIVE 96/61/EC Replaced by the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) No further news 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.

Restriction process A newly-published Regulation (2016/217/EU) amends the existing restriction on the use of cadmium in paints and in painted articles (entry 23). In addition, ECHA submitted a proposal to restrict four phthalates (DIBP, DBP, BBP & DEHP) in April 2016. REACH & CLP (Classification, Labelling and Packaging of substances and mixtures) regulations both apply on all substances, including nanomaterials.

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

REACH is the best possible framework for the risk management of nanomaterials but more specific requirements within the framework have proven necessary.

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.

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. 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.

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

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

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

A stakeholder meeting took place on 11 November 2016 in Brussels. The presentation shown during this event, the minutes and the interim report of the review study on circulators are available here:

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.

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.

The bench mark set by the commission is MEI of 0.7 (70% cut off). The standard EN 16480 has now been published by CEN, however this was publication was carried out without incorporating comments received on the FDIS circulation. A new work item has now been raised by CEN so the work to incorporate the comments should start soon.

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 Extended Product approach drafts (pr EN 17038 Parts 1 &2) have now been circulated for Public comment and comments have now been received. A new meeting to review the comments should be called soon. A call for experts for Part 3 for “Booster sets” (Multiple pump assemblies) and part 4 submersible borehole have been circulated and work should start soon.

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

The Previously advised white, grey and black lists of pumps in and out of scope seem to have disappeared. From June 2016 a flurry of different documents have been circulated in around Europump which culminated in September by receiving a proposed legal text from the Consultants VMAS and Ruben Kubiak the EC policy officer. This document brings again into scope on top of the existing lot 11 products, Booster sets, Vertical Borehole pumps, Sewage Pumps and Swimming Pool pumps. The alarming part is the fact that within this document are energy thresholds and benchmarks which have not yet been discussed within Europump. Questions have now been raised at National Levels on the documents validity. Unfortunately the Policy Officer Ruben Kubiak has now sent this for validation to the “College of Commissioners”. To date this document has not been discussed by the College of Commissioners. Ruben Kubiak has subsequently been replaced within the Commission and work within Europump on this subject continues until advised otherwise.

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.

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.

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).

for transitional methods of measurement to be discussed at the meeting. In the UK we have now been advised that the National Measurements Office has been appointed as the market surveillance authority.

Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU

As regards the review of the framework Energy Labelling Directive, discussions have been ongoing in the European Parliament over the last few weeks. As a reminder, the Industry, Research & Energy (ITRE) Committee is the lead Committee. Members of the ITRE Committee then tabled around 500 amendments.

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.

In parallel, the Environment (ENVI) Committee voted on its opinion report which will feed into the ITRE Committee report. MEPs agreed that basic information about a manufacturer and

include a statement that potential savings within Motor Driven Systems should become actual savings. Discussions have taken place with Pneurop (compressed air) and it now appears that a joint meeting to the EC will take place to discuss options. It is hoped that this meeting will take place in the 1st quarter of 2017.

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.

A review and stronger enforcement of the EED will be part of the European Commission’s work programme for 2016

Both the Council and the European Parliament still have to formally endorse the agreement. Publication in the OJEU is expected for October 2012.

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 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 directive entered into force December 4th 2012 and member states need to transpose into national law by 5th June 2014.

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.

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 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” 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. 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. 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. 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

Environmental footprint initiative No Further News

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

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.

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:

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.

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

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 !!!

The review process of the Outdoor Noise Directive has been put on hold. The ODELIA study on the OND scope and limit values has been finalised (see final report). As a next step, the European Commission will launch an impact assessment study. It aims to assess possible changes in the OND, such as stricter noise limits and removal of third party certification, noise labelling and data collection. Although this study was supposed to start in the last quarter of 2016, the European Commission is currently drafting the technical specifications. Consequently, it is likely to start in spring 2017. The Commission legislative proposal to review the OND is delayed to the end of 2019.

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.

Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) The European Commission’s review proposal was published on 30 November 2016, as this is part of the official Communication on ‘Clean Energy for all Europeans’ (giving the overall policy context accompanying the so-called ‘Winter’ Package).

Why not consider taking an advertisement in next year’s

The proposal will improve information for project promoters and investors by reinforcing the energy performance certificates, making available information on operational energy consumption of public buildings, and linking the strength of public support to the level of energy savings achieved Brussels as well as EU Member States are under pressure to cut emissions from existing buildings, in order to meet their recent Paris Agreement promise. EU Member States have till 30 April 2017 to submit national renovation strategies

BPMA Activity Highlights 2016/17 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

Water European Innovation Partnership, Water Blueprint – Water Reuse No Further News As water reuse for irrigation or industrial purposes is assumed to have a lower environmental impact and potentially lower costs than other alternative water supplies, the European Commission is preparing an impact assessment for a potential future regulation in this field. This new regulation would fill the gap left in EU water policy which only vaguely encourages water reuse without setting any standards. In this context, the new initiative would complement existing EU policy instruments, notably the Water Framework Directive and the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive. The impact assessment work should be concluded in the spring of 2017,

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. ■

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).

7.4 ISO/TC 115/SC 3 Installation and special application The report of secretary has been circulated under the reference ISO/TC 115/N 454. The secretary M Gaydon, attending the meeting, informs about the ongoing projects in the SC 3: •

ISO/DIS 13710 “Petroleum, petrochemical and natural gas industries – Reciprocating positive displacement pumps”

ISO/DIS 21049 “Pumps -- Shaft-sealing systems for centrifugal and rotary pumps”

ISO/DIS 13709 “Centrifugal pumps for petroleum, petrochemical, and natural gas industries”

Those three projects are developed under a joint working group TC 115/SC 3-TC 67/SC 6 with ISO/TC 115/SC 3 lead. Those standards follow the API standard. It is needed to revise the ISO standard in order to be similar to the revised version of API standard. Since April 2012, API has stopped the collaboration with ISO and so the projects don’t progress. Approach to this issue, during the ISO/TC 115 plenary meeting in 2015, ISO/TC 115 reminded that a product standard shall stay under the lead of TC product and reminded to the secretary of ISO/TC 115/SC 3 that a meeting of ISO/TC 115/SC 3 should be organized in order to get the

opinion of the members on those three projects in order to deal with them. Following that, the secretary of ISO/TC 115/SC 3 launched three ballots by correspondence in January 2016 in order to decide whether the members wish to confirm, revise or withdraw each of the three standards. The results of these three consultations have been circulated under the references ISO/TC 115 N 267&268&269. In May 2016, the chairmen and the secretaries of the two committees ISO/TC 67 and ISO/TC 67/SC 6 sent a letter to ISO/TC 115 and ISO/TC 115/SC 3 in order to explain the context of the ISO standards and their wish to not ratify the withdrawal of the three standards. ISO/TC 115/SC 3 commits to study the proposal concept sent by ISO/TC 67 on 16th of May 2016 and to answer to it. ISO/TC 115/SC 3 will investigate in order to organize a meeting of ISO/TC 115/SC 3 in cooperation with the meetings of Hydraulic Institute. If ISO/TC 115/SC 3 approves the continuation of the projects, ISO/TC 115 reminds to all the members that these three projects are product standards that have to remain under the leadership of ISO/TC 115/SC 3.

BREXIT and the Pump Industry motivation. Much of these will be the product of Apprenticeship schemes and easy access to technically-driven education.

BREXIT and the Pump Industry – Get Involved! By: Shaun Hampson of the Flowserve Manchester Quick Response Centre and Chairman of the BPMA Marketing Committee

Hedging the threats and capturing the opportunities, however, is heavily dependent upon the eventual deal agreed between our Government’s single seated negotiator versus a twentyseven strong seated opposition. At what point will the pumping industry be discussed – before or after the automotive, banking and military sectors? Will it ever get any specific consideration?

Our exit from the European Community and the Government’s introduction of the Great Repeal Bill – dismantling the tie to EU laws. What does this mean for the UK Pump Industry?

Now is our time to find the common thread amongst the UK pump industry and its front-line supply chain. It is vital that we fight to preserve beneficial laws, eradicate other bureaucratic nonsense, and forge strong apprenticeship schemes. Right now – at the very early stages – BPMA is working for the good of our UK Pump Industry through member engagement. The aim of the BPMA is to construct an agenda of “go” and “no-go” aspects of forthcoming legislation, while demanding the re-balance of skills, and ultimately voicing our unified position LOUDLY with appropriate Governmental Bodies.

In this article, Shaun Hampson, Chairman of the BPMA Marketing Committee, encourages pump sector engagement in order to meet both the challenges and the opportunities. At the moment nobody really knows for sure what Brexit means for the UK, but it is our time to come together to capture the opportunities whilst managing the threats, through unified lobbying of Government.

Not many pump companies will escape some form of change to their business model after BREXIT has finally matured. If you have unanswered questions about future legislation, and would like be included within the BPMA escalation discussions, you are encouraged to engage with the BPMA in the not-too-distant future.

A vast amount of UK legislation contains references to EU Treaties, and the Government will be seeking to stabilize UK law and regulations as fast as possible. These regulations, laws and directives contain material which can directly tip the buoyancy of our UK pump industry. Basic practises like CE Marking and Declaration of Conformity, for example, will need to be reviewed for inclusion into UK legislation. Other legal directives which we all take for granted may also be reviewed with respect to Import & Export Compliance, movement of employed staff, transfer of machinery, cash pooling, trade-barrier taxation, along with hundreds more. How many of us have non-UK EU citizens working in critical roles within our businesses – will they decide to go home, and why? What about the paperwork needed to import a simple gasket from France? Let’s not even discuss the implications with exotic alloys and PTFE which have dual use!

Recently, the BPMA has been collecting thoughts and prescriptions from its membership through a simple questionnaire. This is a critical path to ensure that we cover every angle on this topic without leaving any business – small or large – marooned and exposed. If you are a member and have not completed this short assessment, please give it the benefit of your Team’s vast experience. Non-members, who understand that this subject will affect their Company, and/or distributor network, should contact Steve Schofield – Director of the BPMA at s.schofield@bpma.org.uk. By doing this, we can all work together to guard against threats and identify opportunities for our pump companies. ■

On the flip-side, there are ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ opportunities which could outstrip the threats; with examples being a wider global market, boosted domestic manufacturing & production, elevated skills & talent pools, plus the good old British

Pumping abrasive and corrosive media can be a real challenge economical in comparison with conventional PD pumps where replacement parts can cost up to 75% of the pump’s initial purchase price and take several hours to fit.

Pumping abrasive and corrosive media can be a real challenge if you’re not using the right kind of pump

Q. How long do hoses last?

By: Rens Zwart of Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG)

A. All hose elements have a serviceable life before fatigue demands replacement; predominantly dependent on the pump speed, but not influenced by the abrasiveness of the fluid being pumped. Depending on the duty and the economics of using a larger and consequently higher flow pump and slowing it down its RPM, operating costs can be much reduced in terms of energy efficiency, hose life and pump maintenance costs

Q. How is it best to specify a pump for abrasive slurry transfer? A. Let the experts at pump manufacturers provide assistance. Abrasive slurries have many different parameters that can impact on pump selection. These include particle size and distribution (percentage of small particles in the slurry), particle shape, concentration of solids and density of solids. Ultimately, slurry types will behave differently depending on particle size and transport speed, so correct pump specification is important.

High quality hose pump manufacturers produce hoses within tight tolerances. They also utilise adjustable shoes to set the perfect compression force for specific process conditions such as suction and delivery pressure and pipework.

Q. What are real costs of using peristaltic pumps for abrasive media?

Q. Are there any examples of cost savings? A. Many companies achieve wide-scale savings when switching to peristaltic hose pump technology. The combined heat and power (CHP) plant of Dong Energy in Studstrup, Denmark, is a case in point when it recently sought to switch from coal to biomass. This unusual application involved pumping highly abrasive fly ash slurry and required an ‘engineered’ solution to help maximise hose life. A test facility was built to determine the viscosity of the ash slurry, as well as measure the pressure drop of the pipes at a given water percentage, so that pumps and pipe runs could be dimensioned appropriately.

A. While the initial purchase cost can be slightly higher than other types of positive displacement (PD) pumps, a quick assessment of associated lifecycle costs quickly tips the balance in favour of peristaltic hose pumps. For instance, there are no expensive seals, ball valves, rotors or stators to wear and replace, while hose/tube replacement usually takes only a few minutes. Furthermore, the low cost hose or tube can be replaced in-situ without the need for special tools or skills, making the process extremely

At Dong Energy, fly ash is mixed with 35% water and fed to the dosing tanks (each with a recirculation line) in the pellet mills through a 650 metre long pipeline. Here, peristaltic ose pumps are deployed to avoid settlement. In total, 21 such pumps are now in use at the plant, delivering an optimised solution that has resulted in huge financial savings: fly ash is traditionally handled by large double-acting hydraulic pumps costing circa £500,000 each. Q. How much downtime can be saved in abrasive pumping/operations? A. Another example. a peristaltic hose pump was put to the test in a process-critical abrasive slurry mixing operation at freight carriage component manufacturer, Amsted Rail. The trial showed that in comparison with previously deployed AOD pumps, the pump could extend the time between scheduled maintenance dramatically. While the AOD pumps need to be maintained every two weeks, the peristaltic hose pumpran continuously for 10 weeks before maintenance was needed. Furthermore, when maintenance of is required, additional savings are apparent as it takes less than 50% of the time needed to reinstate the AOD pump to operational condition. The same pump model also proved successful at EEW Saarbrücken GmbH, a producer of energy from waste. Here, not only did the peristaltic hose pump run for a much longer period when pumping abrasive brine (salt slurry), but the time taken and cost of replacement parts was reduced greatly. EEW had been using a progressive cavity pump to feed the centrifuge for approximately 1.5 hours every 3-4 hours in a 24/7 operation. However, the abrasive nature of the brine demanded the repair of the PC pump stator or rotor every month, along with occasional replacement of the linings. Furthermore, not only would it take a minimum of four hours to perform the repairs (using expensive replacement consumables), but the pump would also have to be removed from the process line.

Pumping abrasive and corrosive media can be a real challenge seal water flush systems, run-dry protection systems, and in-line check valves. Not only does this reduce operating costs, but it also makes installation and maintenance remarkably simple and fast. â–

Using dynamic modelling to troubleshoot pumping system trip Using dynamic modelling to troubleshoot pumping system trip By: Dr Jean-Noel Bajeet of Fluid & Energy Solutions Consultancy Ltd This case study demonstrates how transient dynamic modelling can provide useful insight into operational issues and help identify and eliminate the cause of repeated start-up trip in a pumping system. In troubleshooting, the main difficulty is often identifying the root cause of system failure. Solutions are easier to define once the problem is well understood. Operational issues are easier to visualise in a steady state mode, however when they are related to transient operation (such as during a cold start-up or an emergency shutdown event), system behaviour is harder to understand.

Figure 3: System Modelling for Higher Cv Min Flow FCV It seemed unlikely that suction pressure should be a cause for concern due to the large margin between trip set point and operating suction pressure; trip level (PAHH) was set at 30 barg and suction pressure at pump was only 20 barg.

Dynamic modelling provides a cost-effective means to troubleshoot and determine solutions for such system issues. The benefits include reduced downtime, re-instated availability and improved system reliability.

Dynamic Modelling Using HYSYS v7.2 for dynamic modelling, the crude pumping system start-up was simulated to scrutinize its transient behaviour and monitor changes in key operational parameters. The analysis confirmed a large transient rise in suction pressure (Figure 2) during start-up causing the pump and system to trip. The analysis pointed to the recycle valve size being too small to match the pump work during ramp up. The small Cv (Cv = 55) of the recycle valve was the root cause of the problem.

Background Recurring trips on a 6.9 MW motor driven multistage barrel type centrifugal pump was the cause of severe outage on a North Sea (UK) crude oil processing platform. Plant shutdown lasted sometimes a full day, or more, resulting in significant loss in production. The pump tripped on high suction pressure and the trips were observed during start-up.

The simulation was re-run iteratively with larger Cv valves and eventually, a Cv of 100 (Figure 3) was found to be sufficient to avoid trip and provide a minimum 10% margin from trip setpoint. Discussions The behaviour of a pumping system during its transient phases can be quite complex as it is influenced by the interaction of hardware, control system design and settings and defined operating procedures. The interaction of the open/closing of control and isolation valves and the inertial acceleration of the pump train from idle dictate the movement of crude oil inventory in the pipework and the transient changes in flow rates and pressures at suction and discharge of the pump.

Figure 2: System Modelling for Low Cv Min Flow FCV

Figure 1: Crude Pumping System

41


Using dynamic modelling to troubleshoot pumping system trip From the Cv equation, √∆P, where ∆P=P2-P1, is inversely proportional to Cv. The pump work not dissipated at the valve is carried back to the suction increasing its pressure.

Using dynamic modelling continued from page 41

If the valve is suitably large, the system follows the blue path on Figure 4, producing lower transient pressure rise at the pump and larger flows allowing the valve to modulate and improve its pressure dissipation capacity, as √∆P is proportional to Q. It was observed from simulation that the pump system was then able to maintain its suction pressure within the prescribed range.

Figure 4: Effect of Recycle Valve CV on Pump Start-Up It is typical for a heavy duty pump to be equipped with a minimum flow recycle line and during start-up, the pump would operate in full recycle at a set stable flow, with all pump work being dissipated across the recycle valve (ignoring pipe losses) until the export line back pressure is overcome and forward flow can be achieved.

Figure 5: Valve Pressure drop vs flow Conclusions The problem on the crude oil pumping system was solved by installing a larger Cv recycle valve and system availability was restored. This case not only shows how dynamic modelling can help troubleshoot pumping systems, but also provides a deeper insight into the role of each of its key components. With ever increasing pressure on plants to improve efficiency and margins by maximising availability and production output, this technique can prove useful to help solve pump operational issues.

If the valve is too small, during ramp up, the system accelerates through the red path on Figure 4, producing a large transient rise in pressure. The valve remains fully open at its largest Cv and minimal pressure drop. Cv,steady state = Q

What can the service industry learn from Industry 4.0? Industry 4.0 and Connected Industry

What can the service industry learn from Industry 4.0?

So, if we understand Industry 4.0 to mean an interconnected world of machinery and production techniques that are constantly monitoring demand as well as manufacturing efficiency and taking into account environmental and green aspirations, then the same techniques and methods can be applied to the service and repair industry.

By: Steve Ashman of Solutions in IT Ltd What is Industry 4.0?

Meaningful asset registers and predictive sales

Industry four point zero as it is penned or better explained, the 4th industrial revolution is the latest transformation of world manufacturing. Experts agree that cyber physical systems, a fusion of digital, physical and biological methods will merge to form the union we would mostly identify from our fascination with Hollywood Sci-Fi as artificial intelligence.

Working with a customer to build an accurate list of equipment on each site and the subsequent collation of meaningful data against each operating period and cycle is imperative if you’re client relationship is to be maintained. Knowledge is a differentiator in the service marketplace and a way of purposely staying ahead of the competition. Importantly though, historical knowledge can be used to proactively predict the lifecycles of equipment in the process turning a hand-to-mouth repair business into a service contract, preventative maintenance empire with guaranteed work and revenues.

The 1st, circa 1784, mechanisation of manufacturing, the 2nd, 1870 the division of labour, mass production and use of electricity and the 3rd, 1969, communications, computers and IT automation. We have become aware and almost comfortable with phrases such as artificial intelligence, cyber robotics and biological evolution, but how many of us truly believe that such things will surface and have an impact on our immediate private and business lives. After all, new technology is released all of the time and we can choose to use or ignore its capability, until of course, avoidance is clearly impactful on progress and profitability.

Example: A live customer asset alongside historical service information in the EMIR system, information that is available to all areas of the business including finance, sales and engineering. Visible profitability on all work

Technology is advancing at such a rate that we are bombarded by new innovation all of the time which promises to make our lives easier and add money to our bottom line, so, what is the immediate and accessible future?

As part of our company visions we aim, in the ideal world, for work that compliments the skill sets, experience and capabilities of our workforce and infrastructure. Our achievements are based on the growth of the business and subsequent profits attained and the ultimate direction of the business is formed off the back of this.

The Internet of Things Wikipedia – The Internet of things is the internet working with physical devices, vehicles, buildings, and other items – embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity that enable these objects to collect and exchange data.

But, how quickly is your profitability statement available to you? Would you rather be making business decisions based on financials posted at the end of the year in the final accounts, based on a posted quarter after all purchases and time recorded is invoiced to the client or on the completion of each job in the asset register?

In the service world, the miniaturisation of electronic components, the open architecture used in computers and communication including GPS and broadband and handheld device innovation has awakened the imagination of the corporate world allowing a move from paper based process to computer driven data flow, although often with the results of data capture being shared across disparate and unconnected systems. With the standardisation of software, IP protocols and databases, there is no reason why all collected and retrievable information cannot be sourced and stored in one localised business solution, an integrated and automated approach.

Live information and alerts Connected industry means that all of your systems report into one central location, ideally in real-time, an industry-standard, relational database that holds everything from your asset register, to stock control, through order processing, job management, right through to invoicing and final accounts production. These may not all be one software system, but do have the ability to cross-talk using standardised formatting. With everything in one place, with information that is up-tothe-minute and in an accessible format, this centralised data will really work for you. Expect reports that are collated and delivered to the right people, at the right time. Board packs

In the same way, if the people of the business and its data are interconnected, then why shouldn’t the assets of their customers form an additional part of integration? Sensors and actuators exist that can relay live information to the internet offering a proactive awareness of equipment in situ.

Do you feel under pressure? them if these targets are not achieved. What this actually led to is a reduction in pressure, as if you put less water pressure through the system, the results will be fewer leaks. In other words, there is no quick fix to solving this issue any time soon.

Do you feel under pressure? By: Linda Dingley of Grundfos Pumps Ltd

Engineering to the rescue Pressure is a word we are all very familiar with and due to our increasingly busy lives, is something that we all do our best to try to avoid – most of the time. However, there is one situation where pressure is something that we are keen, indeed in many cases, almost desperate to achieve – that is the correct water pressure.

Pump manufacturers have been working for many years to develop a range of engineered solutions that will overcome these problems and today there are a wide range of boosting products that are available to the market. The sophistication of these pump booster sets has also increased and this will mean that people who are outside the industry will need to take advice from a company who understands about water boosting and who knows how to go about achieving the best pressure boosting solutions, especially when you are talking about non-domestic applications.

This is a subject that many people understand to be a problem but is also one that most are unaware of how to go about solving or indeed that there are ready solutions available. This lack of a water pressure affects all of us. There are instances of this in our homes; our workplaces; as well as in a diverse range of public areas such as hospitals, sporting venues, hotels as well more indirectly for example in the process industry and many industrial applications plus in the water utility arena, where large and consistent volumes of water are a prerequisite.

So what sort of options are now available? Well one of the latest products to arrive on the domestic market is really (continued on next page)

There are many reasons that lie behind this lack of pressure and these have been exacerbated in recent years by a number of evolving factors. These include the advent of taller building structures, which today are increasingly mixed use; more condensed living in our towns and cities; inconsistent site pressure and reduced mains pressure, all of which are contributing to our requirement for guaranteed and consistent water pressure.

A 4-pump booster set engineered to meet the demand of larger applications

The other factor that it would be impossible to ignore is our ageing pipe network infrastructure that requires millions of ÂŁs of investment. The water utility companies do have individual targets that have been set by OFWAT to reduce the amount of leaks in their networks and OFWAT have the power to fine

Modern living has dictated that booster systems will continue to be an integral part of our lives, able to deliver the water pressure we need, when we need it.

These WRAS approved units provide a compact, fully integrated water booster pump that will provide the perfect water pressure to up to 8 water outlets – even with multiple taps and showers running at the same time. These compact sets combine the pump, motor, tank, sensor, drive and non-return valve in one package. Add to this intelligent pump control, which sees them automatically adjust their performance to meet both inlet pressure and water consumption demands.

When will Industry 4.0 affect me? In Summary, most of the technology to create a connected industry isn’t that new. In the last 30 years Microsoft and Apple have created standard protocols on PC’s and Mac’s which we all now rely. New innovations rarely stand alone in a marketplace where interoperability is clearly the perceived modus operandi. Connectivity such as ODBC (open database connectivity), API’s (application programmer interfaces) and document formats, such as PDF, XML, DOC and XLS mean that we have a choice of tools to create the right solution for us.

A new generation of home boosting

Ensuring that the required pressure is available for larger applications is a much more complicated affair. For example getting sufficient pressurised water to the top floor of The Shard is a very different proposition to making sure there is sufficient water to flush all 2,618 toilets at Wembley stadium at half time during a match.

Getting set In general, pressure-boosting systems consist of a number of number of pumps (frequently 1-6), which are installed in a booster system or set, that will increase the pressure in a system to a certain point independent of flow and inlet pressure.

The answer, in my opinion, taking into consideration the accelerating rate of innovation isn’t very long. The important question is, as an industry, will we be early adopters and lead the way. ■

Additionally, pressure-boosting systems are available in various configurations, each of which offers different advantages and characteristics such as comfort level, initial investment cost, running costs, flexibility and supply assurance.

Other factors also need to be taken into consideration such as BIM (Building Information Modelling). This is a valuable tool as it allows building services specialists to manage every step of a building’s life cycle as it provides real-life simulation of all tasks related to the design, construction, commissioning and operation. The rationale behind this modelling is to make the entire construction process more effective and efficient across functional and organisational borders.

Opportunities abound for “smart” engineers to design even smarter pump systems Opportunities abound for “smart” engineers to design even smarter pump systems By: Stuart Melling of ABB How the fourth industrial revolution and the Internet of Things (IoT) affect pumps systems and future job prospects. Five years ago a colleague’s son, while visiting a UK university, was told by a senior lecturer in engineering: “You are about to embark on a three year undergraduate course that will lead to a job that hasn’t been created yet.” Sure enough that graduate is now working in the field of digitalisation, where information technology (IT) converges with operational technology (OT). It is a discipline spawned from the fourth industrial revolution and being built around the Internet of Things which is leading to cyber physical systems used in smart factories. The list of new terms and definitions is immense.

In 1974, ABB launched the world’s first industrial robot for welding work in the automotive industry, as this was the only way for German manufacturers to keep pace with the Japanese.

New era, new professions

There is no doubt that the pump industry is up against some formidable competition for talent: mobile supercomputing, artificially-intelligent robots, self-driving cars, neurotechnological brain enhancements and genetic editing. Yet more worrying is a report by accountancy and business advisory firm BDO in partnership with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers which found that there isn’t enough understanding regarding Industry 4.0 by UK manufacturers. According to the report only eight percent of UK manufacturers have a significant understanding of Industry 4.0, despite 59 percent recognising that the fourth industrial revolution will have a big impact on their sector.

It is a field so packed with smart sensors and big data that you could be forgiven for thinking the aim is to take away jobs. Contrary to this threat, however, the era of digitalisation has hardly created a shortfall of job opportunities. In fact each new era of innovative technology brings new professions and jobs. For example, in 1974, a global automation player launched the world’s first industrial robot for welding work in the automotive industry, as this was the only way for German manufacturers to keep pace with the Japanese. In fact, that’s why hardly any welding work is done manually today, yet more people are working in the German automobile industry than ever before.

Here’s a taster

Can pump systems join the digital evolution?

Pump systems joined the digital revolution over 30 years ago, with the arrival of the variable speed drive (VSD). Today an intelligent VSD, in addition to its inherent energy and productivity benefits, features embedded intelligence that enhances the control and performance of the pump system.

If we compare pump system technology of even five years ago with the innovations currently confronting us, it soon becomes clear that the senior lecturer was not wrong. What is apparent is that for the pump industry to keep pace it needs engineers – and lots of them. But how do we go about persuading young people that working for a pump OEM or even an end-user is far more exciting than tinkering around the social media companies like Facebook and Google? After all, pump systems make a massive impact on the world. They change lives and make the world a healthier and safer place. And, given the issues surrounding water scarcity and the increasing global population, developing the next generation of pump systems will have a far greater impact on society. More than can be truly said for the social media site developers?

To avoid unplanned downtime, all parts of a drive train – from the motors to the VSDs – can be remotely monitored, with regular equipment status reporting, optimised maintenance plans and immediate warnings if abnormal behaviour is detected. For instance, Hanover Fair last year saw the launch of the world’s first low cost sensor for tracking the performance of low voltage (LV) motors. Condition and performance data can be analysed to reduce downtime by as much as 70 percent, extend motor life by up to 30 percent and increase energy efficiency by around 10 percent. This data will dramatically increase uptime. It takes preventive maintenance a step further towards that of predictive and even preemptive. This is one way to harness IoT: to collect data by connecting sensors and systems to the cloud. Motors will be able to anticipate what service levels they need. Using a smartphone app or dashboard all technicians can see real-time information that anticipates a repair before a breakdown happens. Pumps are also being designed with embedded smart sensors that convey parameters such as vibration, Smart sensors are now finding their way into traditional products such as the low voltage AC motor.

temperature and specification data which can be accessed using wireless communication. Real-time pump vibration analysis, for example, can show where a pump is operating on the head-capacity curve. Soon every component within a pump system will have its own internet protocol address. This will enable real-time communication with the motor, pump, control valve, piping, instruments and control system. All of the system components will be able to make adaptive changes to optimise total performance. This is what we call Big Data: information flow from the pump system to the cloud where data is analysed and fed back to enable pump users to achieve predictions about pump system and process performance. Not only will this show when a component or system is about to fail, but also highlight any process bottlenecks and even proactively avoid them happening.

industry’s future educational policy must be designed with these qualities in mind. 1. Collaborative approach – manufacturers need to join forces with pump system designers, government and academia to devise and drive an agenda that inspires young people to enter engineering. 2. Transferable skills – engineers tend to be adaptable. We should identify those skills that can be shared and invest in re-skilling to make engineers more transferable across sectors. 3. Non-traditional skills – work out how we attract those with digitalisation skills to our sector so that we can increase the contribution from younger people. 4. STEM – join the many campaigns to encourage young people to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Also try and remove poor perceptions of the engineering profession among teachers, schools and the media. 5. Role models – identify passionate role models within our industry and support them to be ambassadors for the pump industry.

A robot, installed at the Design Museum, is part of ABB’s encouragement of future generations to study STEM subjects.

6. Innovative technology – the pump industry already has amazing innovations, skills and knowledge. We need to identify and promote it, not only to customers but to schools and universities.

Clearly we have exciting times ahead. The technology exists but how do we get it and implement it at the scale we need and at a price that people can afford? Today is about laying the foundations for the innovations of tomorrow. But much of this will not be achieved if both pump makers and users don’t change quickly. Traditional approaches need to be challenged and new innovations embraced. In an industry where growth is constrained by the cost of production and environmental awareness, the industry needs to broaden its horizons if it is to better adapt its products and services to the new demands coming from the end user.

7. Embrace diversity – engineering needs to attract more women and people from ethnic backgrounds. Doubling the current percentage of women working in the sector will add an extra 96,000 people to the UK’s science and engineering workforce. ■

Attracting talent Whether you are a pump OEM, an end user or technology company, like ABB, you need to encourage the next generation of engineers to join the journey. The potential for developing new pump related products, systems and services to meet the needs of the fourth industrial revolution is with us now. We need to adapt and lead the technological charge. The world of work may fundamentally change due to digitalisation – but we will never be short of work. The new working world will still require more knowledge and above all, more creativity, greater flexibility and conviction for change. The pump Variable speed drives and motors play a critical role in improving the energy efficiency of pumping equipment. But what will the pumping station of the future look like?

NPSH pumping questions answered... (thousands) little voids. The impeller material acts as the backstop to liquid entering these cavities at supersonic speeds and the result is impact erosion known as cavitation damage. Cavitation can destroy even hard material pumps in very short time scales. Consequently, it is vital to protect against cavitation by making sure that the user ensures that there is adequate NPSH available – NPSH(a) – from within the pumping system.

NPSH pumping questions answered... By: Shaun Hampson of Flowserve Manchester Quick Response Centre. The BPMA Technical Committee are often posed with some very interesting – and often fundamental questions from industrial pump users. One question which is very common is regarding NPSH and we have selected an answer from Shaun Hampson, who is Managing Director and General Manager of the Flowserve Manchester Quick Response Centre.

The specifier needs to distinguish between NPSH required for the pump and the NPSH available from his/her application. NPSH required by the pump is commonly known as NPSH(r) and this information is provided by the manufacturer. NPSH available is termed NPSH(a) and needs to be calculated from the system characteristics...

Question: What is the meaning of NPSH; how important is it to a centrifugal pump, what is the best way to calculate it, and which pump should I use if I have very Low NPSH?

Basically, there should be more NPSH(a) than NPSH(r) plus a reasonable “safety” margin in which to account for entrained liquid impurities which may distort its vapour pressure.

Answer:

Pressure Head: Before going into the assessment of NPSH, itself, lets just clarify the term Pressure “Head” and why we use it rather than conventional Pressure like Bar, PSI, Pascals, or kg/m2 etc... The reason behind this lies with conventional pressure being influenced by liquid density.

NPSH is a very commonly used acronym within the Pump Industry and it stands for Net Positive Suction Head. NPSH is a vital element of centrifugal pump selection because it represents the adequacy of liquid feed relative to the need of a Pump. Starving the suction of a pump with poorly available NPSH can rapidly cause cavitation damage to occur. NPSH is relatively simple to calculate, but can have its challenges where liquids approach their boiling point (Vapour Pressure), there are long torturous suction pipe-lines, or the wrong pump is being used.

p=rgh

Where: p = Pressure (Pa)

r

= Density (kg/m3)

g = Gravity (9.81 m/s2)

There are four parts to consider when answering this seemingly simple question: (1) Cavitation, which is a very aggressive form of damage and enforces the need to understand NPSH, (2) Pressure Head in metres, versus conventional Pressure like bar, psi, Pascals, etc, (3) Calculating NPSH available, and (4) Special focus when pumping LPG and Liquids near to their Boiling Point.

h = Liquid column height above its datum (m) Centrifugal pumps handle all types of liquids – with different Densities – and therefore generating differing pressures.

Cavitation: In broad terms, Cavitation starts with the partial evaporation of the liquid because it is being sucked hard, in a non-linear, and turbulent environment. As its vapour pressure is compromised, it starts to evaporate into entrained pockets of vapour.

Rather than a manufacturer creating thousands of Pump Selection Curves for an infinite variety of density options, it is standard practise to employ “Head” – A mere column of liquid expressed in metres which doesn’t change. Head is the height of liquid which will be generated above the pump centre when an impeller of given diameter is spinning at a given speed. The (conventional) pressure measurement, taken at the pump discharge, will be different with different liquid densities. NPSH(a) Calculation: The clue to understanding NPSH (Net Positive Suction Head), lies is the first term “Net” – the total positive suction head once all plusses and minuses have been “netted off”. There are FOUR suction pressure variables needed to calculate NPSH(a)... Two are always negative! They simply need to be added together and are easy to remember: 1. Static Height of liquid above – or below (if suction lift) – the pump. This can be positive or negative. 2. Vapour pressure of the liquid. This must be REMOVED and is therefore always negative. 3. Pipework & valve losses upstream of the pump, reaching to the liquid source, and is always negative. 4. Atmospheric pressure head acting on the liquid surface. While this pressure measurement is in its Absolute form, it is always positive regardless of any possible suction vessel vacuum applications.

These tiny pockets of vapour enter the pump impeller, in their thousands, but are condensed as the surrounding fluid is internally pressurised toward the discharge.

While we are using Head, we need to get all units consistent. This means converting the Surrounding Pressure (p) and Vapour Pressure (Vp) from millibar to metres.

Bubbles collapsing in the vicinity of the impeller ignite damage, as surrounding liquid rapidly fills each of these

NPSH pumping questions answered... Example: Pumping water at 50oC with flooded suction (positive) of height of 5m.

h=

9.81 x 988

Vapour pressure of Propane at 20oC is 8.39bar and the density is 500kg/m3: h=

Assuming 1.014 bara – given from the barometer.

ρg

gives h =

= 171.05m

Now, if we again deduct 0.5m for safety margin(!), we are left with the need to find a pump which only requires an extremely low level of 0.5m NPSH(r) at the duty point. Such “low NPSH” pumps are different – by design – from Conventional End-Suction centrifugal pumps. BUT LOW NPSH PUMPS DO EXIST, which removes the need to excavate the pump installation in which to create more Static Head! Low NPSH Pumps are often built on the Side-Channel principle, but with some centrifugal pump staging included.

(4) Surrounding Pressure: We will take atmospheric pressure, as is usual with an open vessel. Importantly, this could be much lower, especially in the chemical markets, while the vessel is under vacuum.

p

9.81 x 500

In other words, when pumping LPG or any other liquid held at its boiling point, then NPSH(a) can be simplified to be Static Head minus pipework/valve/fitting losses.

Those readers wishing to know more about this topic can contact the author for a reference guide book.

ρgh then h =

8.390 x 105

NPSH(a) = 1-2-3+4 = 1.5m – 171.05m – 0.5m + 171.05m = 1.0m available.

= 1.27m

(3) Pipe-work losses: While this is another topic in itself, we shall use an assumption of 0.5m.

If p =

= 171.05m

(4) Surrounding Pressure: LPG is stored in a closed vessel at its vapour pressure – in which to maintain its liquid state. As above, the

(2) Vapour pressure: At 50oC, the vapour pressure of water is 0.12335 bar. In the above formulae, this gives 0.12335 x 105

9.81 x 500

(3) Pipe-work losses: Let’s assume 0.5m

(1) Static Height: This is 5m

h=

8.390 x 105

1.014 x 105 9.81 x 988

This optimised “Combination Pump” gives the benefit of (a) Low NPSH, (b) High Flow Capacity, and (c) Gas handling, which is important for passing any vapour through the pump - BEFORE the mechanical seal is damaged from poor lubrication. Pump design is another topic, which is too deep for this forum, but more information is available from the author.

= 10.46m

NPSH(a) = 1-2-3+4 = 5m - 1.27m – 0.5m + 10.46m = 13.69m available. If we deduct 0.5m for safety margin, we are now looking for a pump with NPSH(r) of less than 13.19m at the duty point on the pump curve. Out of interest, most CONVENTIONAL endsuction liquid centrifugal pumps are in the region of 1-5m and therefore suitable for this application.

For the sake of completeness, it is worth mentioning that there is another way to reduce the NPSH required for a conventional centrifugal pump. This is by adding an Inducer to the impeller. This volumetric feed “screw” type device “induces” flow into the eye of the impeller. Arguably, inducers are designed to operate in a very precise duty (flow vs differential head) envelope and become “unstable” when the user varies the process due to temperature, demand, speed, or simple valve opening & closing.

NPSH with Liquid Petroleum Gasses (LPG): Pumping LPG follows the same characteristics as any liquid being transferred at its own boiling point. Like boiling water at 100oC, it’s Vapour Pressure will equal the Surrounding Pressure and these two components ultimately cancel-out each other. Finally, this leaves a calculation with only components (1) Static Height, and (3) Pipe-work losses.

Conclusions:

Example: Pumping Propane at 20oC with flooded suction (positive) of height of 2m. (1) (Minimum) Static Height: 1.5m (2) Vapour pressure: At 20oC, the vapour pressure of Propane is 8.39bar and the density is 500kg/m3:

NPSH is a vital consideration in, both, choice of pump and system design. There are only four basic data components needed to calculate available NPSH(a) which make it a relatively easy topic to master.

Cavitation and mechanical seal damage occur when the Pump being used requires greater NPSH than is available from the system.

LPG and Boiling liquids can be treated in the same way, whereby available NPSH can be simplified to Static Head less the pipe-line losses. Both result in difficult Low NPSH conditions.

Very low NPSH is usually accommodated by Combination Side-Channel type Pumps. Alternatively, the user can give more NPSH by either raising the vessel, excavating the pump, or living with cavitation – all three alternatives are often expensive or unpractical. ■

All products conform to the applicable European Directives appropriate to the product. ABB offers the world’s widest selection of motors, generators and variable speed drives. Drives range from 0.12 kW to 80 MW. The ABB drive for water and wastewater, rated from 0.37 kW to 500 kW, features built-in control functions including soft pipe filling, pump auto change, redundancy, pump protection, flow calculation, multi-pump control, pump priority, sleep-boost, level control and pump cleaning. The ABB industrial drives, rated from 0.55 kW to 5,600 kW eliminate the need for an external PLC, save energy and reduce downtime. Motors range from 0.06 kW to over 60 MW. They are available for low and medium voltage duty, in aluminium and cast iron frames, as well as with enclosures for hazardous areas. NEMA motors include general purpose (1/8 to 400 hp), severe duty (1 to 400 hp) and explosion proof (1/4 to 300 hp). A range of motors, rated from 0.37 kW to 1000 kW, are specifically designed to meet the UK’s Water Industry Mechanical and Electrical Specification (WIMES). ABB is also leading the way with the highly energy-efficient synchronous reluctance motor (SynRM) and drive package. The package includes a matched motor and drive with dedicated software and offers smooth, efficient process control and optimal use of energy. Today, the SynRM package offers a more efficient, quieter and easy to maintain package than traditional motors and drives; and at the same price point. There are very few reasons why you would avoid the SynRM as the solution to your next pump system installation. ABB has launched the world’s first low cost smart sensor for condition monitoring of low voltage AC motors. ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor picks up data on vibration, temperature and other parameters and uses it to reduce motor downtime by up to 70 percent, extend lifetime by as much as 30 percent and lower energy use by up to 10 percent. The ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor is attached to the frame of low voltage induction motors. No wiring is needed. Using on-board algorithms, based on ABB’s decades of motor expertise, the ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor relays information about the motor’s health, via a smartphone and over the internet, to a secure server. This solution can make huge numbers of motors into smart devices, enabling them to benefit from intelligent services. ABB can meet requirements of international standards from around the world. All the company’s factories are certified to ISO 14001 for environmental management.

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, ‘E’ 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’ and ‘E’ Series pumps are designed and manufactured to the specific license requirements of 3-A SSI and Ehedg respectively, 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.

Establishing pumping efficiencies and understanding the pipe system gives the best opportunities to optimise the pumping stations and helps to develop recommendations for high maintenance and energy usage stations where costs are significant. Understanding energy usage is sometimes very difficult but with the right equipment and data analysis, energy consumption can be quantified and used to monitor pumping performance. Identifying failures before pumps trip and become damaged beyond repair is critical to reducing unplanned maintenance costs. FPS delivers a cost effective solution to enhance pumping station performance and reduce life cycle costs.
