#34 British Antarctic Survey (BAS) – High-Pressure Pump Overhaul

Back in 2012 Cat Pumps (UK) were proud to be selected by the British Antarctic Survey based in Cambridge to supply high-pressure pumps for an ambitious scientific mission, in which water and sediment samples were to be collected from Lake Ellsworth, some 3km beneath Antarctica. Cat Pumps positive displacement pumps were used to feed high pressure hot water as part of an innovative borehole drilling system, operating under arduous conditions. Fast forward to 2020 and British Antarctic Survey have recently returned to Cat Pumps to request...Read More.

#33 Water Injection for Gas Gathering

To efficiently gather the gas and/or oil in a well, following primary and secondary activities it is necessary to employ enhanced recovery techniques. The preferred method is to inject water at pressures to stimulate flow. IGas Energy plc has selected Cat Pumps UK Ltd. to provide engineered pump/motor skid packages due to their high reliability and robust qualities. The skid packages are ATEX rated and in some instances suitable for Sour Service (H2S). Read More.


# 32 Water Misting for Emission Control

To efficiently control polluting emissions from incinerator stacks or chimneys and comply with regulations such as The Clean Air act 1993 it is necessary to remove particulates such as ash, dust or grit from the incinerator emissions. A preferred method is to inject water at high pressure to produce fine water mist that is sprayed.....Read more.

# 31 Pallet Washing for the Pharmaceutical Industry

Effective cleaning of pallets used to transfer material is a regulatory requirement of the FDA for the pharmaceutical (drugs) industry and is covered by GMP (Goods Manufacturing Practice) regulation part 133.4. Plastic pallets are used extensively in the pharmaceutical supply chain from transport of raw materials and packaging components in the production process through to the delivery of finished packaged products to distribution centres. Read more.

# 30 Removal of Pallet Labels using High Pressure Water

The removal of labels from re-usable containers used in the food and other industries can be a time consuming and difficult process. A customer that specialises in the supply of cleaned, re-usable containers, such as totes, crates and pallets, contacted Cat Pumps to tackle a difficult problem they had with the removal of latex labels from plastic crates used for meat and fish products.

# 29 Hydrostatic Pressure Testing of Shower Components

Hydrostatic (Hydro) Pressure Testing is a process whereby pressure retaining components, such as valves, piping systems, gas cylinders, boilers and pressure washers are tested for strength and leaks. Typically a hydrostatic test rig is used to test components and assess the capability and performance of components for industrial use. The term test rig is sometimes also referred to as test bay, test bench, pressure test facility and testing station, but they all refer to...Read more

# 28 IBC Cleaning

An intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) is a reusable industrial container used for the transport and storage of oil, chemicals, food/beverages, solvents, pharmaceuticals and other liquids. IBC's are made of polypropylene, encased within a mental cage and fixed to a wooden or metal pallet suitable for transportation by forklift, the most popular size is 1000L capacity. IBC's currently account for approx. 15% of the global packaging market; due to the high operational performance and cost efficiency the annual growth rate is around...Read More

#24 Coal-Bed Methane Extraction

Britain’s almost-forgotten coal seams are getting a wake-up call as engineers develop methods to realise the potential of coal-bed methane (CBM), the naturally occurring hydrocarbon gas that is trapped in the carbon structure of coal. At Doe Green near Warrington on the north bank of the River Mersey, Nexen Exploration UK Limited is now running a pilot production CBM extraction plant which is providing sufficient high quality gas to generate 0.5 megawatts of electricity (Fig. 1). Such is the quality of the gas and the potential resources available, further commercial exploitation is a distinct possibility. Read more
