Energy efficient pumps show PepsiCo Roha the greener way to manufacture
PepsiCo Roha in Maharashta, India commissioned a Grundfos Pump
Audit as part of their energy conservation initiative. The audit
results highlighted an over consumption of energy and noticeable
water wastage. As a consequence PepsiCo Roha decided to replace
existing critical systems with energy efficient pumps.
On a Grundfos recommendation vertical pumps and closed couple
end suction pumps were installed in the utility and process systems
in order to optimise the water-energy performance. The following
models were used:CRN 64-2, NB 125-200/221, and NB 100-200/170, CR
20-03, and CR 15-04.
The result was easy installation, trouble free operation and
reliable performance. PepsiCo Roha recorded a 41% reduction in
energy use compared with the old pumping system with a monthly
energy saving of 5625 kWh units. Maintenance officials stated that
this positive experience has contributed to PepsiCo Roha's
initiation into energy conservation and ensured quality production
due to the efficiency and reliability of Grundfos pumps.
