SPP Pumps - Aeration Injection Pump System
18 Jun 2015


Pumps will not always show obvious signs that they are working inefficiently except when you see the electricity bill or maintenance is scheduled. In some cases a pump in distress can easily be easily spotted through vibration, temperature, noise or leakage. It is worth noting that pump systems are often operated as they always have been. Even noise and vibration levels can be accepted because they have always been at that level.

Therefore, the analysis of the pump system in an installation can result in significant energy savings.

Huntsman Pigments – Low Carbon Award Winners 2011
31 Oct 2013

Summary: Manufacture of titanium dioxide pigments is an energy-intensive process and to compete in the global market, UK manufacturers must ensure their energy use is as low as possible. Many of the tools and techniques used by Huntsman are applicable across all chemical operations. Key to their success has been: management backing and setting a strategy and goal setting, clear assessment of where energy is used and what potential savings where achievable, prioritisation of projects and involvement and buy-in of all staff.


Huntsman Pigments is a division of Huntsman Corporation, a global manufacturer of differentiated chemicals. The division operates a titanium dioxide manufacturing site at Greatham, Teesside, UK.

Energy consumption has been an important issue at the Greatham plant for many years. Over the past decade a rigorous management process has been in place, which has reduced the specific energy consumption for the site by 30%.
