Pump manufacturer Torishima procures ABB drive for state-of-the-art test rig, to be used for testing of new products and verifying the energy efficiency of upgrades and refurbishments.
An ABB ACS880 variable speed drive has been chosen by Torishima to provide precision motor control for the company’s new test bed. A smaller 22 kW regenerative drive has also been specified, specifically to allow Torishima to demonstrate its regenerative capabilities.
The state-of-the-art test rig is intended to support Torishima’s growth in the UK water and utilities markets, and will be used for factory acceptance testing of new products at its facility in Glasgow. The rig will also be used to provide enhanced support to service customers, by allowing Torishima to optimise the energy efficiency of refurbished and upgraded equipment, reflecting an increasing desire from the company to improve the sustainability of its products and operations.
The project, which commenced in August with assistance from ABB Value Provider EDC, is expected to be completed in late 2022.
