New deal for Borger pumps and separators secured
The AD developer and operator invested in its first Borger pump in 2015 for its UK site near Swaffham – seeking an alternative solution to its existing pumps that were proving time-consuming and costly to maintain.
Since then, the full-service company, who additionally provide construction, compliance and asset management, has also begun introducing Borger’s Bioselect RC Separators.
The latest Borger separator, the sixth for Future Biogas, is heading for Doncaster. Designed with its drainage and press channels positioned one after the other in order to preserve the filter, the separator’s rotating clearing auger does not come into contact with the screen.
Neil Bushell, head of engineering at Future Biogas, said: “The Borger separators are excellent. We very much like the plug-sealing system, which takes away the risk of any liquid escaping. Since we bought our first unit in 2016, the reliability and superior performance has given us every confidence to order more.”
Converting a wide range of feedstocks into clean, renewable energy at 13 highly efficient AD plants, Future Biogas has gradually replaced pumps that caused issues with a large range from Borger, including the small AL-series (1.5 kW), right up to the 15 kW FL-series.
Bushell added: “Unlike the pumps we’ve been phasing out, we don’t have to spend anywhere near as much time or money on the Borger pumps. Just like the separators, they are reliable and very easy to work on with just basic tools. The mechanical seals never seem to fail. Spares are always readily available – and unlike before – at a sensible cost.”
