Arfon, Wilo, APPE
APPE (Applied Plastic Engineering) are a key strategic supplier to Coca Cola,
operating a bottle production facility in North Wales, United Kingdom.
The supply of packaging for Coca Cola is operationally vital and energy intensive.
APPE contacted Arfon Pumps to standardise the plant room equipment and pursue both strong reliable operation and a reduction in operating/ownership costs.
In conjunction with Wilo Pumps, Arfon Pumps undertook the complete turnkey operation of removal, supply and installation of six replacement 165kW split casing pump sets.
The use of Wilo “SCP” (Split Case Pumps) allowed for a significant operating reduction, whilst simultaneously improving reliability – allowing a reduction in carbon emissions from production operations and ensuring asset/plant availability to maximise production.
Best Practice : APPE – (Coca Cola – Supply Chain – Arfon Pumps)
- Challenge: Standardise production units and remove production risks with improved reliability, all in conjunction with improved product manufacture and reduced energy consumption.
- Result: Wilo engineered SCP units to a single standard design for six products, reduced energy consumption and provided production security.
