Delivering reliable performance, the new system with the 30 " Model 2596 installed cut down on unplanned interruptions to the local heating system and reduced water consumption in the plant by 20 %.
Perhaps most importantly, plant maintenance shutdown was minimized to ensure that production could continue uninterrupted. The manufacturer now only conducts maintenance once a year, saving on both labor and spare parts costs that need to be replaced using the previous solution.
Satisfied operators are the best evidence: Eaton's combination of worldwide engineering, manufacturing, technical sales support and customer service creates worthwhile filtration solutions as they protect manufacturer's process piping equipment by removing debris from the liquid. “The issue of contamination within the recycled water supply presented a major challenge for us in terms of breakdowns and maintenance,” stated Wang Qi, production manager at Xinxing Ductile Iron Pipes.
“We are very pleased with the new solution from Eaton and the level of technical expertise and service we received made all the difference. The performance of the new solution exceeded our expectations and it represented a breakthrough in terms of cost savings and environmental performance.”
