BPMA Activity Highlights 2017/18 was ‘if you do not understand, ask. We can always step in to help, so don’t struggle if you have a situation you need help with’.”

BPMA Announces New President

The all-day event covered a number of topics including GDPR in relation to employment law, protecting your business from employment tribunals, how to reduce sickness absence and creating and updating your employment documentation.

In November 2017 Mr. Duncan Lewis, Managing Director of Xylem Water Solutions UK Ltd was announced as the new President of the British Pump Manufacturers Association Limited (BPMA).

Talking about the advice she gave, Amanda said: “My advice is all about being preventative and helping businesses take action now, so they don’t find themselves in a situation where they may get into trouble. “Last year there was so much legislation change, which is not easy for businesses to respond to, as it’s so complicated. “In the morning I gave the delegates an overview on GDPR and the policies they need revising. GDPR is enforceable from May 25th so businesses need to take action now. “We also looked at health & safety policies that are essential, as well as a back to basics talk on ensuring your contracts of employment and handbook are up-to-date and contain the right information.” To help bring the situations alive Amanda used case studies to illustrate the impact of not taking action. Amanda added: “I like to use a case study for every situation, so members receive a first-hand idea of the types of issues that will crop up, how to deal with them and most importantly how to take action to prevent them affecting your business in the first place.

Incoming BPMA president Duncan Lewis receives an award from his predecessor Peter Reynolds

“For members who are concerned that they need to tighten up on their health & safety policies and procedures Croner offer OnSite support where one of our experts will carry out a health & safety inspection with a fine toothcomb, identical to that of a real inspector. We then generate a detailed report stating exactly where the areas of risk lie and how to address them.”

The role was officially passed on at the BPMA Annual General Meeting, where Mr Peter Reynolds, Managing Director of Grundfos Pumps Ltd, completed his two-year tenure as President and graciously handed the baton onto his worthy successor. Steve Schofield, Director and Chief Executive of the BPMA commented, “This is a great accolade and one that reflects the continuing efforts that Duncan makes to raise the profile of the industry in general and to tackle the tough issues that it faces today. The BPMA has enjoyed the support and engagement of some very talented people at its helm over the years, including of course Peter Reynolds, and we are delighted to have Duncan join that impressive line-up. I look forward to working with him as we continue to drive the association forward”.

If you need support and advice with an ongoing HR or employment law issue or would like advice with tightening up your policies and procedures, your membership provides access to a free business helpline, provided by Croner. For free expert advice call 0844 7550 560 quoting scheme reference 81957. ■

Duncan’s presidency coincides with the uncertainty that BREXIT is currently bringing to industry and when asked to comment, Duncan said, “Being elected as President of the BPMA is a great honour and to take on the role in these somewhat trying times will no doubt be challenging. Brexit is clearly a very important subject with potential opportunities and threats for our industry, but I am sure with the help and support of BPMA staff, its Board and its Council we will meet this challenge”. ■

Expert Workshop Helps Reduce Business Risks At any time BPMA members can have an employment law or health & safety issue crop up, which poses a potential risk to your business. To help members tackle the day-to-day challenges that employing people brings, business leaders were invited to attend an event hosted by your free business helpline provider Croner. The event took place at the National Metalworking Centre, in Birmingham, and was hosted by expert speaker and author Amanda Chadwick. Amanda said: “The audience were very engaging. I felt they were really listening and came to learn. My main message

BPMA Activity Highlights 2017/18

Let BPMA help with your pump selection Old pumps not only consume too much energy, they are also prone to failure which can adversely affect your maintenance budget and in turn your business. By replacing them with new, correctly sized, energyefficient pumps, you will enjoy reliable, low-cost pump operation. As a way of helping pump users to undertake that allimportant pump selection, the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) developed a comprehensive online Pump Selection Search Facility, which is available for anyone to use. This easy to use online search facility can be readily accessed via the existing BPMA website – www.bpma.org.uk/pumpsearch/1/Pumps – and is completely free of charge. How to use The Pump Search There are two ways to search for your perfect pump and its supplier:

This will offer you a list of BPMA members who can supply pumps suitable for that particular application.

Search One: You know the type of pump you need

If your initial search delivers a large number of potential suppliers, it can be further refined by selecting extra parameters from the options available in the left hand column, which include Head, Flow, Drive Type, Material etc.

If you know the type of pump you are looking for, you just need to click on the Pump Type drop-down menu, select your Pump Type then click Show Results. This will offer you a list of BPMA members who will be able to supply this type of pump. Search Two: You know the application, but not the pump type

Only BPMA members are displayed on this search engine and all BPMA members have agreed to adhere to the BPMA Code of Conduct, so you are assured of high quality, fully compliant, energy efficient pumps on every selection.

If you are not sure of your Pump Type, but know what it will be used for, simply click on the Pump Application drop-down menu, select your application and then click Show Results.

You can now use the Pump Search to easily find the correct pump for your requirements and then knowingly “Buy with Confidence” from a BPMA Member. ■

BPMA Activity Highlights 2017/18 We request that any future agreements regarding EU Nationals working in the UK does not create a skills shortage in our sector.

BPMA Delivers Brexit Position Statement

CE Marking and the Declaration of Conformity of Products Pumps placed on the market within the EU are currently required to meet certain safety, environment and energy related Directives and regulations. The CE mark along with the declaration of conformity gives customers the satisfaction that pump products meet these strict requirements. After Brexit pumps sold into the EU will still require a CE mark and to meet all of the Directives and regulations.

On March 29th 2019 the UK will leave the European Union. It is clear from daily news that this is possibly one of the most complex scenarios a UK Government has ever had to deal with. This very important subject will offer potential opportunities and no doubt threats for the pump industry. To assist BPMA members in understanding Brexit, a group of BPMA Council members have held meetings to discuss the possible issues and opportunities and from this they have written a position paper. This has subsequently been approved by the full BPMA Council and then endorsed by members at the recent Annual General Meeting.Since then the position paper has been circulated to MP’s, civil servants and government departments dealing with Brexit and has received a positive response.

Our sector requests that the CE mark remains without change along with retaining the Technical File in the UK if needed and using UK Notified Bodies. ■

BPMA Follows-up its Brexit Position Statement with Membership of EURIS

The make-up of this position paper is detailed below: About the BPMA Established in 1941, and incorporated as a company limited by guarantee in 2009, 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.

The British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) which represents the business interests of UK and Irish suppliers of liquid pumps and pumping equipment throughout both the domestic and international arena has joined with other leading trade associations in its membership of EURIS.

BPMA members account for approximately 85% of the total UK production of pumps, of which half a billion pounds worth of pumps is exported to Europe and over one billion pounds worth of pumps is imported from Europe to the UK. It is estimated that the pump industry employs around 10,000 people in the UK.

The European Union Relationship and Industrial Strategy is an advisory body for the potential impacts of the changing relationship between the UK and EU for the UK Government, manufacturers and media. EURIS members include such notable bodies as BEAMA, GAMBICA, EAMA, REA, CESA, FETA, MTA, BFPA and TechWorks, which between them represent over 4000 companies across electro-technical, electronics, renewables and mechanical engineering products.

Leaving the European Union Leaving the European Union will affect all of us in the UK in some way. The BPMA have surveyed its members and the following issues are major areas of concern.

It has a focus on product manufacturers covered by the Single Market and the supporting regulations and standards. The member associations have extensive relationships with equivalent European trade bodies, and parts of the European Commission. The EURIS Taskforce produces Position Papers and Reports relating to the Brexit process relevant to the manufacturing sector. It also issues a weekly economic report to its members based on a tracked set of macro market indicators ranging from international trade and the general economy through to productivity costs and price indices.

The Single Market and Customs Union If Britain decides to leave the Single Market, there is no point in being part of the Customs Union; leaving would allow the British Government to subsequently agree its own trade deals. International trade deals however are known to take many years to agree and it will require a lengthy transition period to avoid major issues within the pump sector. The best option from an economic perspective is for Britain stay in the single market or the customs union and to continue with “Free Trade” in both directions with unrestricted movement of capital within a company across Europe.

Steve Schofield, Director and CEO of BPMA commented, “Following hard on the heels of our own Brexit Position Paper, which we issued to Government at the end of last year, I am delighted that the BPMA Council has decided to join EURIS.” He continued, “Through our membership of this advisory body, we can ensure that our Members are kept abreast of all developments relating to Brexit and its likely impact on the UK’s engineering sector.” Steve Brambley, CEO of GAMBICA and Vice Chair of EURIS, added, “We are delighted to welcome BPMA into membership, and to enhance the strong and co-operative working relations that already exist between our various organisations through the auspices of EURIS.”

The British Government may give a new name to a new agreement with the European Union, however it is imperative that there are no barriers to trade in either direction. EU Nationals and possible Skills crisis Almost 80% of our industry employs EU Nationals and they wish to continue to do so. We believe that a controlled movement of people with a certain level of skills will continue to be a benefit to our sector and the UK in general.

Further information on EURIS can be found via www.euristaskforce.org. Further information on BPMA can be found via www.bpma.org.uk. ■

As a manufacturing sector our industry uses staff within a shop floor environment to a board room, from technical design office to on site commissioning and we currently have EU nationals in many of these positions. Universities should be able to continue to offer placements for overseas students from within and outside of the EU. They should be given a privileged status to remain in the UK 2 years after their tertiary education before applying for permanent residency.

BPMA Activity Highlights 2017/18 the BPMA said, “We are delighted to welcome these companies into the BPMA, and afford them all of the support services at our disposal. Their varied product and service offerings dovetail nicely with that of other members, and we look forward to developing strong and mutually rewarding relationships with each of them." ■

BPMA Membership Continues to Grow The British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) which represents the business interests of UK and Irish suppliers of liquid pumps and related pumping equipment on both the domestic and international stage, reports continued growth in its membership numbers, with another three companies recently joining the organisation.

BPMA Director Talks to Modern Building Services

One such company who will begin to enjoy the benefits of membership is Teesside based distributor, Tomlinson Hall & Co Ltd. Founded in 1919, Tomlinson Hall has gained considerable expertise in the pump industry, and has a proud history of innovation. As an approved global distributor for a wide range of leading pump brands, Thomlinson Hall works with high profile clients in both the UK and overseas markets, including Europe, the Middle East, North America, South America and Asia.

MBS is one of the leading communication channels in the UK addressing the complex world of building services. It does so through both a monthly ‘hard copy’ publication, which it distributes to over 23,000 readers, and a highly regarded online provision. Editorially, it not only looks at the traditional areas of building services but also seeks to unify the myriad roles of everyone engaged in what is becoming an increasingly sophisticated sector – from design and newbuild to lifetime maintenance and refurbishment.

From its headquarters in Billingham, North East England, the company works closely with end-users to find the right pump system solution for them; offering a total service to industry – including pump selection and supply, site visits, problem solving, servicing and repairs.

Pumps and pump related systems have always played a key role in all manner of building services, and it remains an important market for many BPMA members. It is therefore important that as a part of the BPMA’s ongoing PR activities, we share our news and information with all those operating in this arena.

Speaking of the decision to join the BPMA, Managing Director, Tony Keville, said, “We’ve considered becoming members of the BPMA for a good number of years, but now seems to be the right time for Tomlinson Hall to join its peers. We are primarily known in the Industry as Pump Distributors however we are also a Pump Manufacturer in our own right; producing “Liquivac”, a range of Liquid Ring Vacuum Pumps. I feel sure our engagement will help in our continued efforts to deliver the best possible service to both our existing clients and of course to our expanding list of new customers across the domestic and global market place.

Steve Schofield, BPMA Director & CEO recently spoke to the Editor of Modern Building Services on the challenges facing the pump market, and how the Association is supporting its growing membership. This includes of course its membership of EURIS, and its ongoing endeavours to help ensure that its members’ interests are protected throughout the Brexit negotiations.

Another company to realise the benefits of BPMA membership is Derby based Exalto Bearings UK Ltd, which manufactures bespoke and standard sized rubber-lined and composi cutlass bearings for the pump and marine industries. All its bearings are produced in-house and the company specialises in the manufacture of non-standard sizes up to 900mm in length, 270mm ID and 320mm OD. For the Pump industry, Exalto Bearings works with some of the biggest pump manufacturers and pump repair companies in the world – creating custom-made pump bearings to suit any application. Its innovative modular production tooling system means non-standard items can be produced with little or no additional tooling costs. Dennis Rawle, Managing Director, commented, “We’re delighted to be joining the BPMA, which will no doubt provide an opportunity for both our businesses, Exalto and Graphalloy® (each part of the Graphite Metallizing Group), to work more closely with pump industry professionals in showcasing our range of bearings. Membership will enable us to improve our networking opportunities, in what is a key industry sector for us, and in turn support the continued growth of both our companies.” Blackwood Engineering, a global supplier of castings and counterweights, has also made the move into BPMA membership. Founded in 1946 as a general foundry, the company has diversified and expanded its product offering to include ductile iron and steel as well as more complex engineered castings. Transferring all of its production to China in 1997, whilst retaining foundry engineering as one of its key competences, the company offers a structured and costeffective supply option for all manner of casting requirements.

The discussion took the form of a televised interview, which is available to view on MBS TV, via this link: http://modbs.co.uk/news/fullstory.php/aid/17789/The_BPMA_ s_Steve_Schofield_on_the_UK_market_and_beyond.html It is hoped that other such interviews can be arranged with other sector specific publications over the coming weeks and months, to help further present and portray the work of both the BPMA and its 82 strong membership. ■

BPMA Golf Day 2018 brings out the sun May 24th saw BPMA hold its annual golf day at the prestigious Wychwood Park Golf Club near Crewe in Cheshire, recommended as a potential venue by Past BPMA President Peter Reynolds, this truly beautiful course was magnificent, bathed as it was in glorious sunshine on the day. 11 teams took to the course this year to fight it out for the winner’s trophy in a Texas scramble competition that produced some of the lowest team scores seen in recent years. Steve Smith, Operations Manager of BPMA commented “This format is ideal for team play as the pressure of making a great shot every time is removed, a player who duffs a shot or misses a putt has 3 other team mates who can rescue the hole with one shot of brilliance”.

2nd place: Exalto & Guests, consisting of Dennis Rawle, Peter Vermaak, Andrew Castle and Graham Warren

This year BPMA enlisted the help of Steve Ashman, who spent the day filming players on and around the course. Following an excellent dinner guests were able to see a short video produced and edited by Steve showing some of the more memorable and humorous shots from the days event. Steve Schofield, BPMA Director & Chief Executive then went on to thank all of the sponsors for this year and for their continued support of this annual event, before going on to give out the individual team scores, announce the results and present the trophies to the winners of the BPMA Golf day 2018.

3rd place: ABB Ltd, consisting of Rob Wood, Dave Hawley, Richard Gee and Martin Young

The result of the event were:-

Longest Drive: Stuart Hutchinson, Flowserve Energy

Nearest the Pin: Robbie Burt, Wilo UK

Steve Schofield when asked about the success of this event said: “This event is now in its 14th year and is extremely well supported by many BPMA members and their customers, whilst keeping to the original format we have made some improvements this year which I believe made the event even more professional and enjoyable for those attending”. ■

BPMA Activity Highlights 2017/18 Europump Position paper is now being revised to give up to date information.

European Directives

ATEX (EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES) old 94/9/EC new 2014/34/EU (After 2016)

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

A new list of harmonised standards in the framework of the implementation of Directive 2014/34/EU on equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres (ATEX) was published in the Official Journal (OJEU 8.09.2017 C 298/1).

The European Commission has asked all stakeholders to provide feedback on the suitability of the Machinery Directive to digitization and, in particular, to advanced autonomous robots.

The Atex 2014/34/EU Guidelines 2nd edition December 2017 are now available from S. Schofield BPMA upon request.

In terms of next procedural steps, should there be a clear decision that the Machinery Directive will undergo a revision process, an impact assessment study and another consultation process will be carried out before the end of next year.The feeling within Europump is the current revision will not affect pump manufacturers.

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

One area which members need to be aware of is the Harmonised standard EN809, It has been agreed to revise the standard with CEN but not to include ISO. 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 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.

It is more than realistic that PED is confirmed as it is – it is simply to complex to be treated within residual period of the actual Commission. Within the UK the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has contacted the BPMA with concerns regarding certification of sealant systems for double mechanical seals typically plan 53. They believe some systems are being purchased that do not fully conform to the PED. For more information contact s.schofield@bpma.org.uk.

BPMA Activity Highlights 2017/18 Members are required to use the new number as of April 2016.

continued from previous page

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.

“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)” •

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

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

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

Standards situation EN 13463 series vs. IEC 80079-36/-37

EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility DIRECTIVE) 89/336/EEC Old 2004/108/EC new 2014/30/EU after2016

A Comformity Assessment according to EN 13463-series is valid until August 2019, although customers may claim EN ISO 80079-36/-37 prior to this date. Europump Guidelines part I and II revision

CENELEC have set up a BT Working Group on EMCD Standardisation to demonstrate the benefits of the so-called 80/80 statistical rule for manufacturers and market surveillance authorities. This rule ensures that 80% of appliances in production comply with the EMCD requirements, with a confidence level of 80%. The CENELEC report is available from S.Schofield.

Both Guidelines had been revised and put into alignment with the NLF (2014/34/EU). The issue with IECEx is requested by some EUROPUMP members to be treated as well. Europump Standards Commission has Started work to revise its Guidelines according the new situation (+ IECEx) This will help members transfer over to the new standards before October 2019.

The final draft EMCD Guide was circulated by the EMC Working Group on the revision of the EMCD Guide on 4 May. 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.

Upcoming requests for IECEx-Certificates Publication of EN ISO 80079-36/-37 enable the IECEx scheme to be extended on mechanical equipment e.g. pumps. Some Notified Bodies are pushing for extra work on mechanical equipment.

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

IEC standards 80079-36 & 37 have now been published and include major changes to the marking and documentation of 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.

An updated list of harmonised standards was published in the OJEU. The European Commission has finally published the implementation guidelines of the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC on its website.

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.

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

Electro Magnetic Fields Directive (EMFD) Directive 2013/35/EU (New Number)

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

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.

The European Commission published the Evaluation and Fitness Check Roadmap of the Low Voltage Directive on 30 October, inviting stakeholders to provide feedback by 27 November. The purpose of the evaluation is to assess the overall performance of the LVD 2014/35/EU against the standard evaluation criteria: relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, coherence and EU added-value. Some key aspects on which this evaluation may focus relate to: checking possible challenges/risks stemming from digitalisation of electrical equipment; assessing whether the recent increasing number of safeguard clauses and objections to harmonised standards raised by Member States may necessitate a change in the scope of the LVD and/or health and safety requirements; and identifying any possible overlaps with other EU legislation, mainly the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU, the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMC) 2014/30/EU, and the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.

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

BPMA Activity Highlights 2017/18 The Commission aims to keep the mandate for the time being as “pragmatic” as possible, and then to extend the mandate step-by-step. Currently, the scope of the mandate is limited to: developing a set of harmonised product standards and establishing the Notified Regulatory Requirements (i.e. the essential characteristics) for each product standard. There are new product mandates foreseen to cover metals, organic materials and cementitious products in the future.

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

The mandate is expected to be finalized by the end of 2017. The next steps would include a meeting of the Standing Committee at the earliest by 2018, and a draft proposal by CEN by summer 2018.

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.

As regards the revision of the Drinking Water Directive, the Commission proposal is expected by the end of 2017. 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.

Construction Products Regulation (CPR) – Revision No further news regarding CPR changes, however focus on the pump industry is becoming more relevant due to work within the Drinking Water Directive.

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.

Further to the publication of the “Inception impact assessment”, an evaluation study and an impact assessment of potential review options will be launched in the near future. The final reports are expected in the summer of 2018 (see DG Grow webpage). In this context, the European Commission will launch a twelve-week public consultation to complement the data collection by the end of 2017. The European Commission are considering included Building Information Modelling (BIM) as a new issue in the 2017 Rolling Plan on ICT Standardisation. The EC proposed specific actions including more standardisation work mainly based on ISO activities, the development of European standards in case of gaps, and further support for BIM implementation by the industry.

NEW – Directive 2014/53/EU – RED An updated list of harmonised standards under the Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU was published on 17 November in the Official Journal (OJEU 17.11.2017 C 389/68).

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

DRINKING WATER DIRECTIVE 98/83/EC The European Commission have released its proposal on the Revision of the Drinking Water Directive. Please see the link to the press release (on that page you will also find the proposal) http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-18429_en.htm From the information we have at this stage, it seems that the Commission does not intend to go for full harmonization and that it prefers to pursue harmonization through the Construction Products Regulation. What this means for the pump industry still needs to be evaluated.

WEEE AND ROHS DIRECTIVES 2012/19/EU & 2011/65/EU

There are 5 new CENELEC harmonised standards, 4 of which aim to cover RED essential requirements in article 3.1(a) on health and safety, and 1 covering RED article 3.1(b) on an adequate level of electromagnetic compatibility.

On RoHS, 2011/65/EU The amendments on the RoHS Directive were published in the Official Journal of the EU on 21 November (see here).

The Radio Equipment Directive superseeds the former RTTI Directive and claimes all products equiped or combined with a device transmitting or receiving signals via “radio waves” to be a RED product.

In short, these amendments clarify the transitional date (22 July 2019), introduce an explicit spare parts exclusion and allow secondary market operations for newly-in-scope EEE (articles 2.2, 4.3 & 4.4). This review also increases the exclusions, notably in broadening the definition of non-road mobile machinery. As regards the RoHS exemptions, the review specifies the validity period for Category 11 EEE (5 years from 22 July 2019). It also requires the Commission to provide a timeline for the adoption of its decision.

The situation is unsatisfying and most companies take a pragmatic way forward and follow the well known an established procedure according the RTTI – the predecessor of the RED. All equipment (subject to the RED Directive) combined with the machine is shipped with ist complete Conformity documentation and the machine is declared according macinery directive.

These amendments entered into force on 11 December 2017. As a next step, Member States will have to incorporate them into national law by 12 June 2019. 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 have now published the updated list of harmonised standards in the framework of the implementation of the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) on 14 July (C 229/24). The next list of harmonised standards is expected to be published on 15 October. In addition, the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document on the RED has been recently updated. It covers key clarifications on the scope and application of the RED, as well as the status of publication of harmonised standards, and how manufacturers can ensure compliance with the RED in the absence of standards.

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: 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);

Dual-use items On 23 November, MEPs in the Committee on International Trade (INTA) adopted with a vast majority the draft report put forward by the Rapporteur Klaus Buchner (Greens/EFA, Austria) containing legislative amendments to the “Dual-use Regulation”, following the European Commission proposal published on 28 September 2016 which aims at modernising the EU export control regime and recasting the existing Regulation in force since 2009.

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.

Exporters of products not listed in the regulation but which could be used for human rights violations have to follow the OECD-based ‘due-diligence’ guidelines.

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.

Companies should also be aware of the relaxed import and export restrictions previously applied to Iran.

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:

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. 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.

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

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.

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 Authorizations.

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.

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

A new Europump Position Paper is now finished and available for RoHs2 this is now available from SJS.

Candidate list The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) launched a public consultation to identify 9 new substances as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) to be included on the Candidate List. The proposals include, for example, cadmium carbonate that is found in plastic products, electrical batteries and accumulators. The consultation will run until 20 October 2017.

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.

Authorisation process Although the sunset date expired on 21 September 2017, decisions on some applications for the use of chromium trioxide are still under assessment. This is the case for a very large application submitted by the CTASub consortium. The Commission’s decision on this application is expected in the first few months of 2018, at the earliest.

The European Commission drafted a format for the registration and reporting of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) as per Article 16.3 of the WEEE Directive. This draft regulation is based on a dedicated study. The draft regulation establishes three formats and frequencies for reporting:

Nevertheless, downstream users (such as equipment manufacturers) can continue to use chromium trioxide, if the substance is supplied directly by one of the 7 members of the CTACSub consortium or indirectly by their customers. This remains valid until a decision is adopted by the European Commission.

1. Format for registration of producers, or authorised representatives or third parties acting on their behalf. 2. Format for reporting to the register on data related to EEE placed on the market. Member States did not agree on the frequency reporting due to different national practices: annual vs quarterly reporting.

As regards lead compounds, 4 substances used in the manufacturing process of batteries remain on the priority list.

3. Format for reporting on data related to WEEE collected, treated, recycled and recovered to be performed on an annual basis. The entry into force of this draft implementing regulation is also subject to discussion: January 2019 or January 2020. Regarding next steps, DG Environment will consult other services in the Commission (inter-service consultation). The Implementing Regulation will then be discussed with the Member States at the WEEE Committee meeting in January 2018. The final adoption is envisaged in early 2018. The initial 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. Since then the BPMA and 7 of its members have met and submitted 1 position paper and 2 flow charts, the last being in December 2017. Further comments have again been received from the Environment Agency and it is hoped that the 4th submittal will receive acceptance so industry has something to work with to proceed. The revised Flowchart is available from BPMA. UK WEEE guidance: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/producer -responsibility-regulations#waste-electrical-andelectronic-equipment-weee 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.

BPMA Activity Highlights 2017/18 The Downstream Users of Chemicals Co-ordination group (DUCC) has published a report on experience gained with the development of Downstream User Chemical Safety (DU CSA) and DU Chemical Safety Report (DU CSR).

continued from previous page

Although the industry called for granting exemptions specifically for the manufacture of batteries, no exemption has been recommended.

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.

Restriction process There are 4 new entries in the Registry of Intentions for restriction. Of interest to our industry are the restrictions on cobalt salts and N,N-dimethylformamide. The scope of the restriction for cobalt salts would apply to the placing on the market of certain chemicals and industrial and professional uses where adequate control cannot be demonstrated. For N,N-dimethylformamide the restriction would seek to reduce risks for the general worker population.

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.

As a reminder, the final registration deadline under the REACH Regulation is 31 May 2018. Impact of Brexit The UK’s withdrawal from the EU is likely to impact the rights and duties under the REACH Regulation of companies based in the UK and the remaining 27 EU Member States, including their supply chains. Since the UK withdrawal from the European Union will trigger changes and raise many questions. ECHA has launched a specific section on its website. It provides information to business operators in the format of questions and answers.

Further Guidance:

It has published two new guidelines on the options for UK companies to appoint an “Only Representative” in an EU-27 Member State, and the possibility of setting up a company on paper and transferring its registration to an EU-27 Member State. All the guidelines are available.

EU INTEGRATED POLLUTION PREVENTION AND CONTROL DIRECTIVE 96/61/EC

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

Replaced by the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED)

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

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

The European Commission published the ‘Best Available Techniques’ (BAT) for Large Combustion Plants (LCP) in August 2017 (Implementing Decision 2017/1442/EU). These BAT conclusions will be used as a reference for Member States to set permit conditions for industrial installations, such as power stations and district heating plants.

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.

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

EUROPEAN COMMISSION PROPOSALS FOR AN ECODESIGN FOR ENERGY-USING PRODUCTS (EUP) FRAMEWORK DIRECTIVE – Directive 2005/32/EC

Part 3 for “Booster sets” (Multiple pump assemblies) the committee draft has been circulated through CEN for comment and a meeting to resolve comments is expect in the first quarter of 2018. With regards to part 4 (submersible borehole) a draft has now been received from Darmstadt University which requires transposing onto the CEN template.

Energy related Products (ErP) Directive 2009/125/EC 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.

The review study is being finalised and a Consultation Forum is expected Later in 2018.

Electric motors and VSD, ENER Lot 30 The impact assessment of the revised measure extending the scope of the existing Regulation and setting stricter requirements is almost finalised. It should be submitted, for the third time, to the Regulatory Scrutiny Board by the end of October 2017. An inter-service consultation will take place in the first quarter of 2018. The Regulation is foreseen to be adopted at the earliest by the end of 2018.

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

Energy Labelling Regulation Regulation 2017/1369/EU Previously Directive 2010/30/EU

Circulators 641/2009 The first phase came into effect as of January 1st 2013.

The revised energy labelling framework (Regulation was published in the Official Journal on 28 July 2017: it applies from 1 August 2017.

After sustained lobbying efforts, the European Pump Manufacturers Association EUROPUMP succeeded in negotiating an acceptable text with some important modifications introduced at the last minute: the date of the second stage was set at 1 August 2015 instead of 1 January 2015; the Annex I benchmark was set at 0.20 and the mention “putting into service” in article 1 (scope) was deleted as it would have meant that millions of circulators in wholesale stock would go to waste because they had already been placed on the market but not yet put into service at the time of implementation of the regulation.

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. 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 its product – such as name and energy efficiency performance – should be shared publicly.

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.

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.

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

Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE) adopted the draft report on the review of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) by 33 votes in favor, 30 against and 2 abstentions. Members of the ITRE Committee voted for an EU 40% binding energy efficiency target and national binding targets (article 1) and a strong article 7.

In the context of the Outdoor Noise Directive (OND) review, the European Commission published an ‘inception impact assessment’ at the end of November 2017.

The Directive requires Member States to install individual meters or heat cost allocators to measure energy consumption and allocate the costs in multi-apartment and multi-purpose buildings where heating, cooling and/or hot water are supplied from a central/collective installation.

This document identifies problems related to the OND implementation that require a revision of this legislation. It points out the lack of adaptation to technical progress. notably the non-adaptation of conformity assessment procedures, the administrative and reporting burdens (labelling and database), and legal issues due to nonalignment with the New Legislative Framework (NLF).

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 BPMA submitted is own set of comments on the Consultation.

In addition, the ‘inception impact assessment’ identifies the 3 main objectives for the review:

In April BPMA and members of Europump met again with the policy writer Serena PONTOGLIO to see if article 8 could be improved. Whilst Serena fully understand our frustration but stated that member states are currently trying to dilute other articles within the Directive and they did not want to reopen Article 8 through fear that mandated audits could be removed. She said that Tom Bastin (tom.bastin@decc.gsi.gov.uk) was evaluating ESOS in the UK.

1. Reduce noise of outdoor equipment to better protect workers and citizens; 2. Update and simplify the regulatory environment; 3. Improve innovation and competitiveness. Finally, the European Commission proposes main policy options for the OND review, from implementation improvements or NLF alignment and conversion to a ‘Regulation’ to a full revision. This document highlights possible changes to the scope, noise limit values, conformity assessment procedures, measurement methods, noise label and data collection requirements (database).

Article 8, mandated audits has not been reviewed at this stage a meeting has been requested again with the writers of Article 8 to discuss the possibility of modifying the article to 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.

As regards the next step, the European Commission will launch a 12-week public consultation up to the end of April 2018. The European Commission updated its guidelines on the Outdoor Noise Directive (the draft document is available upon request from the Secretariat). The update consists of editorial amendments; no change in the substantial content has been made. The revised guidelines will be published on the Commission website in June 2017.

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”.

As regards the OND review, the European Commission will launch the impact assessment and evaluation study within the next few weeks. The Commission legislative proposal to review the OND is expected in 2019 at the earliest.

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.

Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) On 10 July, Members of the European Parliament (EP) Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE) debated the amendments tabled to the draft report of rapporteur Bendt Bendtsen (Denmark, EPP) on the EPBD review. They mainly discussed the proposal for introducing a product passport, the energy poverty issue, financing and long-term renovation strategies.

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. 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.

The opinion of the Environment Committee was adopted on 7 September by 53 votes in favour, none against and 6 abstentions. The thresholds for inspections of heating and airconditioning systems are not modified in this document and an alternative to inspections is introduced in the form of “measures to ensure that adequate advice is given”.

Both the Council and the European Parliament still have to formally endorse the agreement. Publication in the OJEU is expected for October 2012. The UK Government have chosen to introduce the requirements of the Directive through a Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS). The ESOS scheme information has been circulated for consultation to all necessary stakeholders. The BPMA responded to this consultation.

As regards the next steps, the draft report was adopted on 11 October and the plenary vote will take place at the end of November. The trialogue meetings (negotiations between the EU Council and the EP) will start after the vote in the ITRE Committee.

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.

As a reminder, the objective of this proposal, part of the “Clean energy for all Europeans” package, is to accelerate the cost-effective renovation of existing buildings. The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive stipulates that

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.

all EU states make new buildings ‘nearly zero-energy’ by 2021. The study shows a positive impact of the Energy Performance Certificate under the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (Directive 2010/31/EU) on sales and rental prices, indicating that better energy efficiency is rewarded in the market. In one of the first studies of its kind to include an analysis of residential markets in Europe, it was found that higher energy ratings result in substantially higher sales or rental values of buildings on average in most of the Member States that were analysed.

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.

Environmental footprint initiative and the Circular Economy A copy of the European Commission publication “A European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy� is available from s.schofield@bpma.org.uk. The strategy addresses three key priority areas: a) improving the economics and quality of recycled plastics, b) curbing plastic waste and littering and c) driving investments and innovation towards circular solutions.

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 Strategy suggests improving the recyclability of packaging and products, possibly through mandatory product design marking requirements under the Ecodesign Directive. It aims to boost demand for recycled plastics by improving recycling processes and harmonising collection and sorting in the EU-27.

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.

To curb the release of microplastics into the environment, the Commission will propose measures to restrict products with intentionally added microplastics, improve their capture in waste water treatment plants, and monitor their presence in drinking water.

This project is currently proceeding and conclusions. For a better understanding of the process for developing these rules, testing verification and communication vehicles, the

BPMA Activity Highlights 2017/18 Commission will conduct several consultations with stakeholders, which will consist of an official online consultation in the first quarter of 2018, and an “European Water Conference” in the third quarter.

continued from previous page

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.

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).

Water European Innovation Partnership, Water Blueprint – Water Reuse 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 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.

The European Commission published on 20 October 2017 a Roadmap for the evaluation and fitness-check of the Water Framework Directive (WFD). The fitness check will start before the end of 2017, and will also evaluate the “daughter directives”: Groundwater Directive and Environmental Quality Standards Directive. The evaluation will focus on: a) the EU value added of the WFD, b) the potential for simplifying the regulation, c) a cost-benefit analysis and impacts on business, d) identifying areas for improvement and d) performance in the Member States.

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. ■

The Commission will make the implementation reports available, which will then be used as the basis for the fitnesscheck evaluation starting in early 2018. During this time, the

Tomlinson Hall launches scrappage scheme Tomlinson Hall has launched a pump scrappage scheme which can help end users save money on the running of older, energy inefficient pumps, and support the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) in the process.

2nd generation Warman® WGR® pump Technology and innovation central to the creation of the second generation WGR® pump Compared to its predecessor, the 2nd generation Warman® WGR® pump boasts improved performance and wear life, ease of maintenance and efficiency gains, while retaining the versatility of the original WGR® pump. It is ideal for applications within the sand and aggregates industry, with the new hydraulic design which is able to handle a wide range of materials efficiently and with minimal energy used. It offers a lower cost of ownership through improved performance, a onepiece suction casing, fixed flanges and a drain port, making this a simpler design with fewer components, easier to install and maintain, and the ability to allow system drainage during shutdown periods.

The firm will give £99 to any company which replaces any mlinson Hall and old pump on their Colin Simpson of To & ANE ChemPharma CR of y dsa UK premises with a David Lin s ion new DEPA® air Energy Flow Solut operated double diaphragm (AODD) pump, which will be supplied by Tomlinson Hall. The firm will safely dispose of the old pump and the scrap value of each pump replaced will be donated to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). Pump users can either take their scrap pumps to Tomlinson Hall’s premises for disposal, or under the scheme, Tomlinson Hall’s engineering team will de-install the pumps on the customer’s site.

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.

World Pump Market Summary The BPMA has established a relationship with Oxford Economics who now produce a Global Pump Industry Report. We reproduce below an extract from that report.

Comment A strong upcycle whose momentum accelerated throughout 2017 has put the global industrial economy in its strongest position for at least three years. This growth is mirrored in the evolution of the pump market: we estimate that global pump consumption (excluding parts) expanded by 5.6% last year to a total value of US$65,788 million – following two straight years of market declines. The most important factor driving this turnaround is an investment recovery in the developed world. Spare capacity has fallen close to pre-global financial crisis levels and, coupled with a solid demand outlook, strong business confidence and ready access to finance, investment in advanced economies should rise this year at its fastest rate since the crisis began in 2008. A significant business tax cut in the US will provide additional tailwinds there, while in Europe there is considerable pent-up investment demand after years of weakness in the wake of the Eurozone sovereign debt crisis. A second factor is strong trade flows, which are an important forward-looking indicator of industrial activity. We have been surprised at the durability of the acceleration in global export flows, with momentum shifting away from China towards North America and Europe (although there are high downside risks to this, if the current protectionist skirmishes snowball into a broader trade war).

Exploring the Benefits of BIM for t h e Wa t e r I n d u s t r y BIM4Water

Exploring the Benefits of BIM for the Water Industry

A typical water asset such as a pumping station is in fact an incredibly complex system that requires the skillset of a number of cross-industry specialists. Of course, pumping stations are intrinsically different to a building, not least from the perspective that pump sumps are below ground and buildings traditionally above it and inhabited. While the principles of BIM remain the same, it presents a number of potential questions and/or issues, all of which are being debated through BIM4Water – a dedicated group of individuals from across the water industry, who have come together to devise a mutually agreeable strategy to help facilitate BIM within the sector.

By: Jamie Mills, Systems Engineer at Xylem and member of the BIM4Water Steering Group While the principle element of Building Information Modelling (BIM) is associated with the built environment, and more specifically deemed the role of specifiers and architects, the benefits for the water industry are also great. Jamie Mills, Systems Engineer at Xylem and member of the BIM4Water Steering Group explores the relevance of BIM for the water industry and the lessons that can be learned from other sectors.

Outlining the delivery process The construction and delivery of a water asset using BIM level 2 requires clear definition of the owner operator requirements. A project brief and Exchange Information Requirements (EIR) provide specific technical details about information drops, data environment structure, timescales and methods of data transfer. These describe the architecture of the Asset Information Model (AIM).

Better Information Management Building a new commercial office space may seem far removed from the building of a new water industry asset, but there are similarities. The water industry has embraced BIM into its day to day operations, but there are some key differences in terms of understanding the methodology. Although the strict definition of BIM relates to building information modelling, we like to see it more as better information management; enabling a more efficient design process, construction and operation.

Once the project is complete, the information from the Project Information Model is handed over to the client in order to update the AIM. Using these structured methods removes any ambiguity from the delivery process and provides formal constraints for the design team to work within – helping to reduce any errors at handover. Parties work within project containers which contribute towards a Common Data Environment (CDE). This consists of a graphical information model and a non-graphical asset database. The key benefit of container based working, is the ability for teams to work together and within specific volumes. For example, civil, mechanical and electrical engineers are able to collaborate, avoiding the collision of services within installations.

Evolution The principle methods of BIM have worked well in architecture, construction and building services for many years, so it is only logical that this now extends to other aspects of the built environment. In fact, following the UK Government’s mandate for BIM Level 2 on centrally procured construction projects the method has gained considerable recognition amongst other industries. Globally, there will ever growing interest in the methods of BIM with the forth coming release of ISO19650 which will describe the organisation of construction work using building information modelling.

The non-graphical asset database captures all documentation including constituent product technical details and a naming convention provides a reference for these within the CDE. These technical details are captured within Product Data Sheets which are supplied by manufacturers. For example, pumps are referenced in a particular manner which indicates their type, location and what specific project they are installed on. Conventional information about performance and maintenance is also given. The main benefit here is the ability for specification teams to contrast and compare products and systems with other similar solutions. For example, it would enable the itemisation of spare parts within a whole life cost analysis resulting in a more accurate prediction.

A Graphical Model

Benefits The combined process of designing in a graphical model alongside a geographical information system and non-graphical asset database supports augmented reality, and the ability to build off-site both of which improve safer practices of work in construction and facility management. One example of this is the construction of packaged pump stations and wastewater treatment plant whereby manufacture, assembly and testing is completed away from site and the asset is set into a location using a single crane visit. This dramatically reduces the construction team’s time on site and their exposure to risk. (continued on next page)

Motors for pumps Motors for pumps By: Brian Bannister, Motor Specialist – Lafert Electric Motors Ltd Compliance and fit-for-purpose are essential requirements for both pumps and the motors driving them. Motor compliance regarding energy efficiency is a European IE standard obligation whilst suitability for the application can be determined by a wide range of factors, including size, weight and non-standard configurations. Currently, for 3-phase applications between 0.75 and 375kW, the motors can be either IE2 compatible when used with a VSD or a minimum of IE3 compliant if connected direct online. However, if motor manufacturers or their distributors held motors of lower efficiency in stock at the time the new energy efficiency requirements came into force then these motors may be acceptable. Higher energy efficiency levels have been defined – IE4 and IE5. Whilst no date has been set for them to become obligatory they do serve to establish benchmarks and enable motor manufacturers to attribute recognised efficiency levels to their products. Higher energy efficiency levels have been defined – IE4 and IE5

A number of motor manufacturers are already offering motors to IE4 and IE5 efficiency standards. For pump manufacturers they give the opportunity to build-in a level of future proofing in addition to offering their customers a more energy efficient combined pump/motor solution. The futureproofing arises from the elimination of pump redesigns should IE4 and IE5 become obligatory.

environments or even outside, can offer long-term, lowmaintenance service in such locations as water treatment plants.

In addition to offering IE4 and IE5 efficiency, some manufacturers are offering their higher efficiency motors as smaller, lighter units. This is due largely to the use of permanent magnet technology developed from their expertise in the design and manufacture of rare earth servomotor technology. In some instances, this has resulted in the new IE4 and IE5 motors being reduced in both weight and frame size significantly.

Not all pumps will accept conventional motor mechanical designs due to non-standard mounting configurations so customised solutions might be required. Other non-standard features could include such items as special shafts, electrical connections and windings. ■ For further information, Email: lafertuk@lafert.com Telephone: 01270 270022

For example, a standard 5.5kW 112 frame IEC motor might weigh 34kg whilst a comparable hybrid 5.5kW motor comes in a 90 frame and weighs only 16kg. Again, a standard 7.5kW unit comes as a 132 frame and weighs 53kg while the alternative hybrid comes as a 112 frame and weighs just 26kg.

Exploring the Benefits of BIM for the Water Industry continued from previous page

Consequently, pumps could be made lighter and more compact. This, together with the energy saving, could contribute significantly to reducing the whole life-cycle cost.

The methods also allow physical modelling of hydraulic structures and pumping stations to become more efficient. The 3-dimensional design will allow direct import into computational fluid dynamic analysis, without lengthy redraws from traditional 2-dimensional files. Further technologies are also becoming available such as additive manufacture for rapid prototyping, or 3-dimensional printing – this enables design teams to physically review the models before signoff into construction.

Further, the replacing of an IEC standard motor with such an alternative would significantly up-rate the pump’s performance. For example, by replacing a standard 132 frame 7.5kW motor with a 30kW similar frame size hybrid permanent magnet alternative a pump could benefit from an increase of power input of up to 400%, providing the system permits it.

Going forward

Another benefit from adopting these new higher efficiency motors is their ability to potentially upgrade the efficiency of pump system packages to a point that potentially no modification to impellers or casings would be required in order to meet ErP demands.

In the beginning, many may have been reluctant to embrace change within the design, construction and installation of water industry assets using the methods set out by BIM. However, as the benefits become clear, our industry is responding which in turn is driving efficiencies across the supply chain. This is ultimately the goal of BIM, and we must now ensure its legacy, which will mean the continued sharing of knowledge and product data resulting in better customer service. ■

Some motors are targeted at specific market requirements. For example, smooth bodied stainless-steel motors. These are ideal for hygiene sensitive industries such as food and pharmaceutical because they are easy to clean, being hosedown tolerant, have no recesses or crevices to harbour potential contaminants, and eliminate the hazards of peeling paint and rust. However, some IP66/69K stainless motors, because they can be employed effectively in wet/humid

Fluid Questions Fluid Questions By: Peter Staddon – Managing Director of The Pump Company Ltd When faced with the task of pumping difficult fluids, it is important to understand the potential pitfalls and the precautions needed.

Peristaltic Hose Pump

There are all kinds of issues to consider when ensuring a product is pumped safely and efficiently without destroying the fluid or the pump. A liquid that is either viscous, volatile, corrosive or aggressive/abrasive – or a combination of any of these factors – presents the user with some challenges. In order to understand the pumping challenges, it is necessary look more closely at the rheology of the fluid. Viscous fluids fall into five main groups: •

Newtonian: water, alcohol, oil – liquids that don’t change by shearing (agitation)

Dilatant: butter, cream – liquids that thicken by shearing

Thixotropic: paint, soaps, grease

Liquids that are shear thinning: •

Bingham plastic: mayonnaise, toothpaste, ink – liquids with a yield point prior to thinning

Super viscous: pitch, tar, asphalt, bitumen – excessive shear or heat is applied to move the liquids

Diaphragm: wide range of liquids but not the panacea

Peristaltic hose pumps: wide range of liquids; will handle slurries, viscous, shear-sensitive and aggressive fluids

Flexible impeller pumps: mainly thin liquids or liquids containing some solids

Vane pumps: good for both thin and high viscosity clean fluids – no solids

Progressive cavity pumps: wide variety of thin or thick fluids containing solids

Volatile fluids These are fluids that generally evaporate at room temperature and are therefore highly flammable. As a rule, containment is the major issue when pumping such liquids, and this is where the ATEX directive (from the French ATmospheres EXplosibles) covers the type of products used in potentially explosive environments. The selection of construction material, motor type (flameproof) and sealing system form the basis of any pump selection. Corrosive fluids Corrosive or hazardous fluids and acids or bases (caustics or alkalis) directly attack pump materials with the rate of corrosion depending on the concentration and temperature of the fluid. To counter these effects, material compatibility is vital. Materials as simple as stainless steel may suit one product but could be totally unsuitable for another that requires a nonmetallic or thermoplastic solution. Aggressive fluids Handling aggressive and abrasive fluids is a difficult application for any pump because the particles promote material wear.

Internal Gear Pump

As a general rule of thumb, larger pumps running slowly give longer lifecycles and prove to be the cheapest option in the long term. There are two ways of handling abrasion from a material point of view; either by utilising a hard material that resists wear or using a soft lining that is sacrificial and can be renewed.

Pumping viscous fluids Fluids with a kinematic viscosity of up to 200 cSt can be pumped with a centrifugal pump. However, as the viscosity increases, positive displacement (PD) pumps are required.

So what are the basic rules?

The flow rate in a centrifugal pump reduces as the viscosity increases, whereas in a PD pump it increases through higher volumetric efficiency.

Give your supplier as much detail about the fluids that you intend to pump: flow, head and suction conditions, the location of the pump, details of the pipe run and material, filters, meters, valves, and the chemical name of the fluid or mix of products.

There are many different types of PD pumps, depending on what liquids are being handled: •

Internal gear pumps: oils, resins, chocolate, bitumen with fillers (materials that are high viscosity or shear sensitive)

External gear pumps: thin or viscous clean liquids (good for metering)

Lobe pumps: viscous, shear-sensitive or fragile solids (food grade)

A competent pump supplier should be able to offer more than one solution and be able to explain the benefits linked to them. And always ask about previous experience in handling similar fluids. ■ For further information, Email: info@thepumpco.co.uk Telephone: 01293 533665

Electric v Diesel Dewatering Pumps On the other hand, fully automatic self-priming diesel centrifugal pumps are the de facto choice for delivering fast dewatering solutions to sites where an alternative power source, such as a generator or mains feed, is not available. They are the ideal solution for transporting or raising water with large abrasive solids in suspension; such as in construction and mine site dewatering, floodwater, stream diversions and municipal applications. Transportation and storage handling at remote sites is simplified if these pump units feature forklift slots and a built-in lifting eye.

Electric v Diesel Dewatering Pumps By: Paul Humphreys of Atlas Copco Power Technique Electric or diesel? When it comes to the choice of power sources, whether for road vehicles or construction equipment, it is a debate that is becoming increasingly prevalent. Equally, it is a decision that applies to the choice of dewatering pump technologies for operations within the construction, mining, utilities and municipal arenas.

4. Performance Providing hours, and even days, of unattended dewatering pump operation, submersible pumps can meet the demanding requirements of raising water from great depths or lowering water tables even in the toughest environments; with some models capable of running for up to 2,000 hours without attendance. As they are sub-surface units they can continue working under ice in freezing conditions; as long as the pump is completely submerged. Where appropriate to the task, electric pumps offer environmental compatibility. For instance, quiet running is an essential feature of their performance when they are sited in populated areas or employed in nighttime operations.

However, unlike the automotive debate, it is not a contest of technical supremacy to establish an outright winner. It is a common-sense selection process based on matching equipment performance and capability to all aspects of dewatering applications. Any decisions should take into account critical factors such as required volume, flow/head specifications and the constitution of water and materials to be pumped. Pump capability has to encompass the variables of operational conditions, site access, project duration, environmental issues, equipment autonomy and much more.

When equipped with a reliable engine and high capacity cooler, centrifugal pumps will ensure continuous and safe running even at high ambient conditions. Together with fuel autonomy of around 40 hours, continuous drainage is made possible even with significant volumes of air (snore conditions) thanks to an oil-free diaphragm vacuum pump’s automatic priming. In addition, some pumps can be equipped with an extra-large fuel tank that allows them to run for longer periods without refuelling.

Here are five key considerations you should focus on when you choose to buy or rent a diesel or electric pump: 1. Power and Flow Sturdily built for endurance and reliability, diesel powered centrifugal pumps are designed for handling high volumes of water discharge. The operating flow range is typically between 50 to 830 m3h with a head of up to 51 metres. In addition, these pumps are able to operate in a high variable speed range, which enables them to cover different applications and flow/head combinations.

5. Maintenance and service With electric submersible pumps extreme durability is guaranteed as they offer high-wear resistance. Meanwhile, the modular construction of these types of pump provides for simplified maintenance procedures. Some models can also be equipped with on-site servicing and parts replacement kits, including seals and impellers.

By comparison, medium-to-large electric submersible pumps offer maximum power ratings in the region of 54 kW and can typically manage flows from 225 to 16.500 litres per minute with a maximum head of 85 metres. These are the typical range; however, some higher-head pumps are available.

With the exception of replacing wear parts and engine filters, maintaining centrifugal pumps is easy and simple. Another part of this type of equipment’s appeal to rental organisations is the inclusion of advanced controllers with data monitoring capabilities that flag up when service interventions are required.

2. Solids handling Diesel driven centrifugal pumps can work with water that is clean or dirty as well as handle trash and fibrous materials. Their solids handling capacity can reach up to 76 mm in size thanks to features such as semi open impellers and abrasion-resistant pump casings. Discharge connection diameters typically range from 75 – 200 mm.

Conclusion It all comes down to the nature of the application and questions such as where is the site, how deep is the access point, what is the nature of the water/material mix to be pumped and how long will the equipment need to run to complete the operation?

In contrast, electric submersible pumps have the ability to handle abrasive materials and solids up to 12 mm (higher with sludge pumps), although it’s highly recommended to equip them with hardened impellers when handling suspended solid. 3. Applications

Making the correct pump selection will depend upon the physical parameters – the static head height, the required hose length and its diameter. It will need interpretation of equipment manufacturers published flow rate v head height performance curves to find the BEP (Best Efficiency Point), and thus the pump best rated to deliver this performance. What’s more, there are also considerations to be made of friction losses and cavitation issues. So, overall, making the right choice is not a simple issue but with expert guidance from equipment suppliers or renters it can be achieved satisfactorily. ■

A PAS centrifugal pump

Electric submersible dewatering pumps offer portability, easy handling and are generally available in a power rating and capacity range that make them well suited to ground water control applications; including emergency duties. For instance, construction and mining sites where a pump with a small footprint is needed, such as when draining a sediment tank. They are also useful for applications where diesel pumps cannot be used, for example underground mining or where emissions are not allowed.

Plugging into the power of digital Plugging into the power of digital By: Martin Richardson Water Framework Manager of ABB Ltd Digital technology is helping pump operators to make their systems more resilient, by tackling everything from ragging to turbidity. But even greater developments are around the corner. Whether it’s involved in moving water, sludge or indeed any other substance, a pump’s cargo is always precious. Inefficiency is always unacceptable, and building resilient pump systems that are capable of dealing with changing conditions and unexpected events, essential. For the water industry, this is especially true. With the publication of its PR19 methodology, Ofwat set out its view of what is needed to ensure a resilient long-term future for water. Central to this is that the industry must collaborate if it is to achieve the innovative solutions that are required not only to create more resilient systems, but to tackle other challenges, both existing and new, that lie ahead.

Digitalisation of VSDs and motors will continue to positively impact on the resilience of pump systems

Closer collaboration will also help unlock the potential offered by the digitalisation of pump-related technology, as well as the increasing provision of cloud-based technology and services.

the risk of built up sediment from being disturbed. Meanwhile, the quick-ramp feature protects bearings when a submersible or borehole pump is started. Quick ramp allows a pump to reach its minimum speed as quickly as possible to extend pump bearing life, ensure problem free operation and prevent unplanned outages. The quick-ramp functionality allows the use of dedicated ramp sets to quickly accelerate and decelerate the pump. The first ramp allows immediate water flow to lubricate and cool the bearings. The second ramp is used to reduce turbidity as the pump is not producing any flow in this region. By combining quick ramps with a long normal ramp up and ramp down time, the VSD will ensure proper lubrication, efficient ramping in the no-flow zone and as slow as possible ramping after that to ensure minimal turbidity.

This seismic shift has already begun. By working with suppliers, utility providers are finding that it is possible to improve pump resilience by utilising functions built into existing assets, such as digital variable speed drives (VSDs), low voltage motors and pumps. For example, today’s VSDs come packed with smart features and functions that can be used to make processes work harder and better for longer. Two of these functions which are found in some VSDs are helping the industry to tackle the longstanding problem of turbidity. Controlling turbidity and suspended solid levels in raw water pumping is vitally important in ensuring the efficient extraction and supply of water to consumers. Water with high levels of turbidity is more likely to carry bacteria and living organisms which can cause disease.

Smart functions such as these are just some of the ways that today’s digital drives are helping pump systems to work harder.

For this reason, turbidity and suspended solids concentrations are tightly regulated and need to be carefully monitored to ensure that limits are maintained within DWI (Drinking Water Inspectorate) compliance limits.

Another in-built, but often overlooked feature of a VSD, is adaptive programming. While not its main purpose, this building block programming tool can be used as a ‘get out of jail free’ card when installations don’t go to plan. It is used to customise the operation of VSDs in cases where the drive parameter settings are not sufficient, should additional functionality be required. For instance, a UK water utility tried an emergency stop shut down on a new set of pumps, but the harshness of the stop caused the building to vibrate. Using adaptive programming, the drive was coded to detect stop situations and come to rest more steadily, as well as recovering from a black start. Without adaptive programming the cabinets would have needed to be re-wired and the project delays would have been hugely expensive.

The use of VSDs on pumping applications can reduce turbidity problems. When a pump changes its speed as slowly as possible, it helps achieve the lowest turbidity values for the water being moved or extracted. Two features built into today’s VSDs help reduce turbidity – quick ramps and soft pipe fill.

Hose pump cuts maintenance costs at ‘energy from waste’ plant

Digitalisation of VSDs and motors will continue to directly – and positively – impact on the resilience of pump systems. The next leap forward is being provided by the launch of cloud-based remote maintenance services that enable pumps (and other motor-driven systems) to be monitored and maintained from half a world away, if necessary). A suite of services is now available, including remote assistance, condition monitoring and, more latterly, predictive maintenance. These are distinctly different services but all use the cloud to transmit real-time data on the health and function of motor-driven applications. In this way these services are set to transform the way VSDs, motors and now pumps are maintained and operated.

The soft pipe fill function manages the pressure of water filling the pipeline with a gentle approach. This helps to avoid sudden pressure peaks and reduces the risk of water hammer which can cause damage to the water pipes and reduce

32


Plugging into the power of digital While digitalisation is opening up a new world of machinedriven possibilities to improve the resilience of pumps, there is no doubt that the best results are coming from good old fashioned, human collaboration. This was brought home recently with the results of a project ABB is undertaking with a utility provider to reduce leakage at its pumping stations. The utility in question has already succeeded in eliminating downstream leakages by installing VSDs on pump motors that were previously connected direct-on-line (DOL). The drives are installed at sites that were experiencing a higher than acceptable level of bursts. Using a series of high-speed data loggers, the utility was able to identify the cause of these bursts as pressure transients caused by DOL starting. Following installation of the VSDs, at one site the number of leaks fell from nine in one year to none. To build in even greater resilience against leaks, the utility is continuing to work closely with ABB engineers to investigate using the adaptive programming function within ABB drives to monitor and change pressure set points remotely. This will be achieved by feeding the drive information, via the cloud, from a pressure sensor located at the critical point. Statistical modelling will then be applied to the data, determining the optimum pressure set point for the pump system at any moment in time. The VSD could then adjust the speed of the pump motor continuously, in response to changing conditions. It is a work in progress and involves constantly tweaking the way we use the technology in order to get the required results for the utility. This illustrates perfectly what can be achieved when like-minded organisations work together to use cloud-based technology to provide innovative solutions to the biggest challenges facing their industries. â– Closer collaboration will help unlock the potential offered by the digitalisation of pump-related technology

Building in Fire Protection required. These can be broadly categorised as follows:

Building in Fire Protection By: Linda Dingley of Grundfos Pumps Ltd Fire safety in the UK has long been a much-debated topic and focus for various suggested legislative actions. It is however, also true to say that taking decisive action has perhaps not always been as high on the political agenda as perhaps it could have been.

Control: these systems manage a fire until the fire brigade arrives.

Suppress: these systems manage and actively reduce the size of the fire until the fire brigade arrives.

Extinguish: these systems completely extinguish a fire.

Other system installations (such as hydrant or hose-reels) are designed to offer connections to a water-supply for the fire brigade to access upon attendance, at potential points within a building where water would otherwise not be easy to access.

This is something that has dramatically changed in the aftermath of the Grenfell disaster, in which 71 people died in their London tower block in June 2017 and which has caused many aspects regarding fire safety to be examined and not just in relation to high-rise applications.

Correct commissioning is always important, but for fire systems this is particularly so. It is vital that commissioning is undertaken by properly qualified personnel who will carry out a full range of tests to ensure that the set is fully compliant and meets the required specification.

It is somewhat sobering to realise that only 2% of current towers (defined as 10 storeys and above) in the UK have fire protection and this actually decreases to just 1% for council tower blocks. Generally, there are still many fire incidents and the Fire Service in England alone attended 161,770 fires in the 12month period to March 2017. These pre-Grenfell incidents resulted in 261 fire fatalities and 7,081 non-fatal casualties Current Regulations Presently the regulations in England mean that only buildings constructed since 2007 and which are taller than 28m are required to have sprinklers fitted. This requirement wasn't applied retroactively so did not apply to existing towers unless a fundamental change was made to the structure or use of the building. Regulations are the same in Northern Ireland. In Scotland all new residential buildings taller than 18m must be fitted with sprinklers. Pumps are an essential weapon in fire suppression Pumps play a crucial role in protecting all our buildings, large or small, commercial or industrial, high-rise or single storey as well providing for the personal safety of people who live and work within their footprint.

Large fire pumps sets

The good news is that today in the UK there are some experienced pump manufacturers who have the knowledge, skills, product portfolio and proven track record to deliver on a wide range of pumps solutions. This is not only true for high rise situations but also for a wide range of other applications that begin with the need to protect us all and our assets, starting with individual domestic dwellings, right up to delivering the required fire technology to protect the highest risk industrial and commercial structures.

The future As an industry, specialist fire pump specifiers, manufacturers and suppliers have been pushing for many years to have a much greater emphasis and focus placed specifying the correct fire suppression system. Equally the key players recognise the importance of ensuring that the installation and ongoing maintenance is only conducted by personnel who have attained the specific credentials to undertake this exacting type or work.

As safe as houses? One of the more noteworthy developments regarding legislative steps to secure homes from fire came into effect in Wales on 1st January 2016, when the building regulation there changed to include the mandatory installation of sprinklers (automatic fire suppression systems) into new dwellings and flats. This was seen as a brave step and one that would potentially lead the way for similar legislation to come onto the statute books for other parts of the UK.

Currently there are no formal plans for major revisions of any standards or legislation relating to fire suppression, although there are several reviews underway, including the Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG) who have commissioned an independent review of building regulations and fire safety. It has been suggested this could lead to the retrofitting of fire systems becoming mandatory for existing high-rise properties and the legislation surrounding not just high-rise buildings but HMOs (homes of multiple occupation) will very likely be subject to much stricter standards.

Its introduction was delayed several times as there were many concerns from developers about the additional costs involved. Today there are many homes now benefitting from this extra surety, although not as many as there may have been as a loophole has been found where the land that was bought prior to the legislation coming in, is exempted.

Summary With or without legislative changes, it is important to realise that there is both the fire equipment and fire technology and expertise already in place to safeguard both people and property from potential disaster, you just need to choose a pump partner who can build in the fire protection that is right to meet those particular demands. ■

Commercial/Industrial applications Within the UK, each building is given a designation that is defined by a number of criteria and given a hazard category. There are three of these (for LPCB* systems) – light hazard, ordinary hazard and high hazard. These are dependent on the combustibility rate of the items within the building (for instance, a high combustibility would be considered a ‘High Hazard’).

*LPCB = Loss Prevention Certification Board is part of BRE and sets the standards to ensure that fire and security products meet the necessary standards.

High Pressure? No Problem Evaluations were successfully repeated at the test facility. We then installed the seals for a full-density test at the oil fields. The seals again demonstrated their reliability and robustness and were released for operation.

High Pressure? No Problem By: Torsten Bernicke, Product Manager Compressor Seals and Systems / Mixer Seals, Flowserve

Reliable Operation in the Field The compressor unit has been in production, since then, we have delivered 12 high-pressure seals to the project. Marty Klosek, sales director for compressor seals and systems for the Americas, explains, “Delivering reliable sealing solutions for those extended, high-pressure conditions is where we excel. Our excellent team of technicians and engineers employs state-of-the-art materials, procedures and ingenuity to meet customer needs every day.”

Advanced dry gas sealing technology enables reliable operation for sour-gas injections and other highressure processes Despite increased interest in renewable and alternative energy sources, the long-term demand for oil continues to grow. Demand is projected to rise by 1 percent per year through 2030, according to the International Energy Association “2010 World Energy Outlook.” As a result, oil companies are spending billions of dollars to develop non traditional technologies to maximize production from new and existing reserves.

Next-generation High-power Dry Gas Seals We continue to develop dry gas seal technology and delivers seals for the highest-pressure injection applications in oil fields today. Our dry gas seals are state-of-the-art, fieldproven compressor seals for reliable high pressure sealing. These modular seals feature a unique single rotor design and are the first in the industry with diamond-like coating. The dry gas seals also have the most references in the industry with bi-directional seals and non contacting separation seals.

Sour gas re-injection (SGI) is one of those non traditional techniques, and it shows promise as a key technology because of its benefits, which include: •

Increasing oil production.

Complying with emissions regulations.

Avoiding the production of large amounts of sulphur as a by-product of the sweetening process.

Eliminating flaring of sweetened gas and the subsequent CO2 production.

Maintaining well pressures at levels suitable for full exploitation.

Applying continuous advancements to proven seal technology. For example, we have completed internal tests up to 650 bar which has recently been released to market. In addition, calculations and virtual tests of dry gas seal designs have reached a new peak of 800 bar. Our goal is to extend operating capabilities beyond 1000 bar. These promising results reflect the next generation of seals for high-pressure and ultra-high-pressure dry gas applications. ■

Sour gas is toxic because it contains significant amounts of hydrogen sulfide — 20 percent or more. SGI requires reliable seals that can handle the extremely high pressure generated by the centrifugal compressors. Dry gas sealing technology is the industry standard for extremely high-pressure applications such as SGI. One such breakthrough application can be found at an SGI operation in the oil fields of Central Asia. We were invited to participate in a project that would test the limits of dry gas sealing technology: develop seals capable of operating successfully at 425 bar (6,164 psi).

Enhanced Seal Design The oil field is one of the world’s 10 largest crude oil fields, and one of the most complex to produce. The extreme seasonal temperatures in the region [ranging from 36°C (96.8°F) to -40°C (-40°F), in addition to the high-pressure SGI operation, require a keen focus on reliability at all times. Therefore, seal performance, reliability, safety and, most importantly, repeatability is essential to the oil field and its oil recovery. Therefore, we had developed an enhanced, reliable seal design that could withstand the increased pressure. The dry gas compressor seal solution used stationary faces made of silicon carbide with diamond-like carbon coating. To simulate operating conditions, the company leveraged analytical tools such as finite element analysis and computational fluid analysis tools to analyze the dry gas seal’s core components. Uncompromising Evaluations Once the improved seal design was ready, we began rigorous testing to simulate realsite conditions as well as limits even beyond design criteria. We Seal performance, conducted tests at its Dortmund, Germany facility, reliability, safety and including long-duration steps, start-andstop, heatrepeatability is essential run and 250 cycles of coast-down tests.

The no-stress guide to MEES and this may not necessarily be a bad thing.

The no-stress guide to MEES

Why the focus on non-domestic? Non-domestic buildings have come under particular scrutiny recently as being responsible for 12 per cent of the UK’s emissions. To give this some context, transport as a whole was responsible for 24 per cent, according to a 2015 report by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy*. A disproportionate number of these buildings are also holding inadequate ratings for their energy performance, with around one in five currently operating with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) of F or G. This is largely due to ageing buildings using inefficient or inadequate heating and water systems. Under the MEES, all non-domestic buildings will soon be required to hold no less than an E rating for their EPC certificate.

By: Stephen Booth, Building Services and Industry Sales Manager at Xylem UK The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) for non-domestic buildings come at a turbulent time for the UK. Political instability means that the future of much legislation is uncertain, while investment in green technologies is being threatened as government incentives are withdrawn. Stephen Booth, Building Services and Industry Sales Manager at Xylem UK, cuts through the issues to take a look at MEES and what landlords can do to meet these standards.

What is an EPC?

The phrase “government introduces new legislation” can strike fear into the hearts of even the most stoic of landlords, particularly if that legislation carries hefty penalties for noncompliance. It’s understandable, then, that the new Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES), which were designed to provide a clear and consistent message on minimum standards for non-domestic buildings, have got many landlords talking.

An Energy Performance Certificate is a rating given by an accredited energy assessor based on a building’s construction, type and relevant fittings, such as heating, insulation or double glazing. An EPC assessment doesn’t discriminate between new and old equipment, but rather evaluates how much each system costs to run. Therefore, no matter how shiny and new your heating and water systems may be, they will receive a low rating if their running costs are in any way excessive. EPCs are important because they allow prospective tenants to gain an idea of the general running costs of the property, and every landlord of a non-domestic building needs to supply one.

Minimum standards they may be, but clear and consistent they most certainly are not. Cross-referenced with additional regulations from the Building Regulations 2010 and the Energy Performance of Buildings 2007 and 2012, as well as the rules surrounding Energy Performance Certificates and the obligation to meet other legislative targets, the MEES present an Herculean task for anybody trying to make sense of it all and translate government spiel into tangible objectives, actions and results. Nevertheless, from 2018 onwards landlords will be under an obligation to meet these standards,

Meeting the minimum As a landlord requesting an EPC assessment can be costly and time-consuming, and it’s often hard to predict what kind of rating your property will receive. Therefore, you should

The no-stress guide to MEES there may be instances when meeting an E rating could come at the cost of a good Environmental Impact Rating! This is because of conflicting bases for evaluation, and it might be worth debating what the true measure of efficiency is – economy of cash, or economy of carbon – in the future.

continued from previous page

consider conducting a full energy audit before applying for an EPC assessment. This will allow you to analyse your systems from the inside out and see what’s working, and what’s letting the side down, in order to meet the E rating, or above. Each building is judged on its own merits, but for systems under 25 years old, improving your EPC rating could be as simple as retrofitting existing systems with efficiencyenhancing technology, such as variable speed drives. For systems older than 25 years, we often recommend replacing ageing or inadequate features, which may not reap the full benefits of retrofitted technologies. By conducting an energy audit before committing to an EPC assessment, you can target the areas of your systems that need replacing or enhancing, which will allow you to meet or exceed an E rating for your building. Consider the variables A simple way to help improve the efficiency of your building is to retrofit it with variable speed drives (VSD) such as Lowara’s Hydrovar. Most water and heating systems currently work with fixed speed technology. This means that the system runs at one consistent level whenever it is used, no matter what it is being used for. This is particularly problematic for non-domestic buildings. For example, one person using the shower on the fourth floor in a building with no VSD, will use as much energy as ten people on each floor where a VSD has been fitted. Variable speed drives for your water systems are easily retrofitted to existing systems – in many cases you simply attach them to the top of a pump. As the name suggests, they vary the flow and power of the water depending on where it is being used, and by how many people. This is an easy and cost-effective way of hitting the targets for MEES, and keeping bills down.

A simple way to help improve the efficiency of your building is to retrofit it with variable speed drives (VSD) There’s a lot to take into consideration here, and the penalties for non-compliance, barring any exemptions, can be severe. However, by partnering with an expert in heating and water systems, such as Xylem, to improve your infrastructure in a cost-effective way, you can feel confident that this piece of government legislation will benefit both you and your tenants in the long-term. ■

Can I be exempt from MEES? There are five cases where landlords and their buildings may be exempt from MEES. First, the landlord must be able to show that any changes needed in order for the systems to meet the required efficiency would result in excessively high costs. They may also be exempt if these changes will negatively impact the value of the property, or if they could damage the structure of the building. Landlords can also apply for exemption if they have been unable to receive any required consent from third parties, such as their tenants, although they must be able to show that reasonable efforts have been made to try and achieve consent. Finally, new landlords will have a six-month respite before they are required to meet MEES.

If landlords meet any of these criteria, they will be added to an exemption database. However, be aware that any meaningful changes to your tenants or the structure of your building may require you to file for exemption again. Where do we go from here? The MEES are certainly a step in the right direction, as it’s important that landlords strive to improve the efficiency of their buildings. After all, a more efficient heating and water system would mean significant cost savings for both landlords and tenants. However, are the MEES as “clear and consistent” as they claim to be? This is certainly up for debate. The legislation on top of regulation and certification does leave room for perhaps a little too much interpretation. If you dig a little deeper, you can even uncover loopholes and contradictions that could cause a few headaches further down the line. For example,

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 Ability™ Smart Sensor for low voltage motors is a low-cost device that 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. • Now the same technology has been adapted for remote monitoring of pumps. The ABB Ability™ Smart Sensor for pumps monitors pump temperature, vibration and bearing condition – using data analytics – to prevent clogging and other issues in water applications. Using on-board algorithms, the smart sensors relay information about the motor or pump health, via a smartphone and over the internet to a secure server. • ABB can meet requirements of international standards from around the world. All the company’s factories are certified to ISO 14001 for environmental management.

IDEA was originally formed to offer to trade associations a service of collecting and publishing their member information thus promoting themselves and the services they offer. This was done in a variety of formats: • Printed directories • E-Newsletters • Web sites • Electronic catalogues on CD Rom Our aim was always to produce well designed publications which are effective, accurate and excellent value for money. Today, almost all of our work is in printed directories. Over the years, we have worked for organisations as diverse as: • British Footwear Association • Manufacturing Technologies Association • British Materials Handling Federation • National Access & Scaffolding Confederation • British Pump Manufacturers Association • Stone Federation Great Britain • Construction Equipment Association Because of IDEA’s concentration on trade association communication, it is able to offer an effective service which is designed to fulfill the specific requirements of trade associations. IDEA will do everything from the initial conception, obtaining information from member companies, collating it and ensuring that it is presented in the terminology that is common usage within industry. These services are designed to complement those of a trade association; associations may pick what they require to be done and do themselves that which fits within their own organisation. Publications can be financed in a number of different ways and IDEA has considerable experience in such schemes. Above all, IDEA publications are intended to be effective and user-friendly, they can be multilingual and are designed with the requirements of the user in mind, not from the basis of using the latest tricks and gimmicks.

Touchwave Media is a specialist PR and Events business, serving the industrial b2b arena with a range of marketing services and associated 'live' events such as awards dinners, conferences, seminars and product launches. Working closely with trade associations across a number of engineering disciplines, we help to promote business and professional excellence, and encourage effective sales channel communication through events such as:• Pump Industry Awards • Motor Driven Systems • Europump General Meeting • BCIA Awards • Motion Control Industry Awards • CSA Awards • AEMT Awards Additionally, our press and public relations activities ensure that our client’s endeavours are accurately communicated both internally amongst their respective membership or customer base, and externally throughout the wider business environment. Engagement with sector specific awards programmes, and the associated alignment to business and professional excellence, delivers exceptional levels of brand awareness and customer loyalty.
