Heating Basildon & Thurrock University Hospital

AGM Plc’s projects installation team supplied and installed a new sealed system pressurisation unit for the heating system at Basildon & Thurrock University Hospital.

Controlling the expansion and contraction of the 70,000 litres heating system, the new Aquatech Pressmain Spillpress pressurisation Unit keeps the hospital heating system operating at a temperature of 90 degrees centigrade and pressure of 8.0 bar.

Darren Harris from Basildon & Thurrock University Hospital commented.

“Please pass on my gratitude to your installation team for a thoroughly professional and tidy job; I am very pleased with the outcome”.

A Prestigious Project for Grade II Listed Pioneer Centre – London

AGM/Aquatech Pressmain were asked by specialist management property company Dealmore Commercial to supply a booster set to boost the water to the luxury apartments at the Grade II listed, Pioneer Centre.

The AMV 3 booster set needed to be housed in the swimming pool plant room. So, to meet the requirements of the chlorine atmosphere, Aquatech Pressmain designed and built bespoke components in 316 stainless steel including the manifolds, pump wet ends and control panel.

The Centre was built in 1935 to a design by architect Sir Owen Williams and described by Walter Gropius as “An oasis of glass in a desert of brick.” So, this was an especially interesting and enjoyable project.

Dealmore Commercial have a maintenance contract with AGM so having supplied and installed the bespoke equipment they have peace of mind knowing AGM will also regularly maintain and service it.

AGM Pumpseal install at main London Airport

Utilising their Spillpress, a modular design, able to accommodate multiple vessels of varying sizes, to match the requirements of the system, Aquatech Pressmain built a SpillPress SP2ET sealed spill-back pressurisation unit and three 750 litre spill vessels, reducing the required footprint to fit in the available space and meeting the needs of the heating system in the cargo area at a main London airport.

The pressurisation unit has been designed to maintain a tight control over the pressure in their heating systems regardless of temperature fluctuations and has the advantage over an open format solution of not allowing spilled water to come in contact with the atmosphere.

AGM Services installed the unit replacing an ageing, unreliable and obsolete pressurisation unit.

AGM keep the taps running at The Salthouse Harbour Hotel

In consideration of the hotel and their guests, AGM built one of their Aquatech Pressmain Brand AMV3 FE enhanced booster sets to match the dimensions of the existing set, in order to minimise the work needed when installing and therefore the length of time the water had to be turned off.  The new set will keep the water running efficiently and guests in comfort, at this award winning Gough Hotel, on the Ipswich waterfront.

Gough Hotels have taken out a maintenance agreement with AGM so the booster set will be regularly serviced and maintained.

Clean drinking water, food and education for children in Uganda

Aquatronic Group Management Service Engineers install equipment to guarantee clean drinking water, food and education for children in remote Uganda.

During their successful trip to install a pump for a well and solar panels at a school last year, our adventurous AGM Service Engineers Melvin and Phil conducted surveys in order to prepare for another two projects next Spring.

At a farm they are hoping to install a small solar well for land irrigation so they can grow maze and in a remote village where most of the children are orphans, they plan to install a solar pump and water storage tanks. Hopefully this will ensure a regular, safe, close water supply and the infrastructure to start another school.

The project to supply these fundamental life needs is co-ordinated by The Beacon Fellowship in Loughborough. Melvin and Phil have been only too happy to give their time and expertise and Aquatronic Group Management Plc are delighted to support them by donating equipment.

Aquatronic Group Management Plc help maintain water services for global bank

AGM were asked by CBRE Managed services Ltd, to provide a reliable and robust solution for the bank’s Head Office in London. They required continuous low temperature hot water for the heating system along with a continuous, chilled water supply to the air conditioning in the server rooms.

To guarantee this level of continuous service, and considering the limitations of the space available in the plant room, AGM used their own Aquatech Pressmain brand of products. Providing a solution of two AP7 pressurisation units, one running, one in duty standby mode for the hot water and another two set up in the same way for the chilled water system. All four units are in use ensuring equal wear, controlled by a changeover panel.

The four units are housed in a bespoke framework designed and manufactured by AGM to fit in the restricted space within the plant room, at the same time ensuring easy access for maintenance.

AGM installed the units and they will be maintained by them under their maintenance contact with 24/7 call out.

If you have a project which needs this level of service and would like AGM to help, please contact the project department on 01206 215176.

AGM Engineers make easy access to water possible in Ugandan School

We take clean running water for granted but in Uganda this is a luxury. Phil and Melvin Cotton, two experienced AGM service engineers undertook the 22 hour journey to The Alpha and Omega School in Entebbe Uganda and used their skills and AGM equipment to make life better for 350 children.

During their four day stay they fitted solar panels to the school roof to power the solar pump, donated to AGM which they fitted to an 11 meter deep well in the school grounds. This means the children no longer have to undertake the dangerous walk to springs or miss lessons to get water.

Melvin and Phil were also able to transform one young man’s fortunes by buying him a pig and were obviously taken by the positive attitude of the people who’s daily lives are dominated by the need to find food and water.

Office building in London SW1

Background : The heating, chilled and condense systems were all fitted with Warmac spill type units approx. 20 years old. Whilst the units had been very reliable in operation, due to their age and lack of BMS compatibility we were contacted in order to quote for modern replacement units.

Solution : We specified 3 custom built Aquatech Pressmain SB5 pressurisation units for the 3 systems. To reduce the cost to the customer 2 of the units were specified with GRP spill tanks. The units were designed specifically to fit into the available space on site and to minimise the alterations required to the connecting pipework. The units were installed over 2 weekends to minimise the disruption to the end user.
