AkzoNobel – SHC Range
AkzoNobel were able to reduce electricity costs by 26% switching from a competitor pump to Crest’s SHC range.
Akzo Nobel is a specialist chemicals and paint company with an international presence in over 80 countries in the world. Akzo Nobel were upgrading particular assets during a planned shutdown and wished to replace some existing pumps that had been prone to leakage. A site survey was carried out by Crest where it was believed that not only could replacement SHC pumps be more reliable, but they would also work out to use over 25% less energy.
As a result, Akzo Nobel ordered two horizontal pumps capable of a higher efficiency, combined with ATEX Zone 2 certification and a specific chemical resistant epoxy paint requirement.
