Keeping the pressure up

Walkers Shortbread has selected AquaTech Pressmain to supply the pumping equipment for its new shortbread factory in Elgin, Scotland.


AquaTech Pressmain supplies water booster sets to ensure pressure is boosted to reach the top of high-rise, commercial and domestic buildings in the UK and overseas. Pumps are supplied from stock or can be made on a bespoke basis.


For this project, the AquaTech Pressmain sets were manufactured to maintain water pressure at a constant flow rate required for the Walkers food process.
The three pump sets supplied were specified by building services engineers Forbes Lesley and installed by Corrie Plumbing and Heating.


The solution supplied consisted of twin stainless steel end-suction high efficiency pumps, controlled by the Micromatic MPC microprocessor, with LED displays and a building management interface.
