Ashland Chemical

Ashland Chemical

Heart of Industry Award Winner

Casey Kulig has for 15 plus years tried to use Goulds in every application that makes sense. He values the reputation, the quality, the integrity as well as the overall breadth of product to outfit his plant. We have changed out non Goulds pumps ranging from mag drives, split case, self priming, inline and ansi. The plant recently installed (2) Pump Smart units and we are working towards outfitting many areas of the plant. We have studied overlall performance of thier bad apple pumps and after replacing a Flowsereve Inline with a 3996 we were able to reduce the MTBF by over 200%. (they abuse the heck of their pumps). Bottom line is that Casey Kulig is a true ambassador of GOULDS PUMPS!

Specialty Chemicals company acquired by Ashland in 2012. Batch plant that runs until something breaks...Ashland (ISP) makes specialty chemicals and performance enhancing products for consumer and industrial markets. This plant seems to be one of the few remaining in the South Eastern part of the state that is making chemicals and as a result every tom, dick , and harry calls on them offering to sell copy cat Goulds.

Asian Paints  Ltd

Asian Paints Ltd

Heart of Industry Award Winner

Asian Paints Ltd is the largest paint manufacturer in India and Asia’s third largest paint company, with a turnover of Rs. 141.83 billion. They took a bold step to try out an all metal twin screw pump to handle water based paint for the first time in the industry.  Only progressive cavity pumps and air operated diaphragm pumps were used earlier for this application. Since the introduction of twin screw pumps for this application, Asian Paints has over 223 such pumps spread over 3 manufacturing locations in India. This has saved the expenses and hassle of changing stators of progressive cavity pumps ever since.
A daring step when there were no references for such pumps used for this application.

Butterball LLC

Butterball LLC

Heart of Industry Award Winner

Butterball LLC sells over one billion pounds of turkey a year and is headquartered in Garner, NC. Butterball embraces the reliability of high quality pumps for various applications coupled with VFD systems. This combo helps extend MTBF, saves on energy costs, allows for less manned operation of pumps and provides more accurate pump performance. It has allowed Butterball to control their pumps based on multi-pump, pressure control with pump protection to allow automatic pump staging/de-staging as demand downstream changed. This automated a normally closely monitored DOL pump system. Having this system also allowed them to lower the system pressure vs. the original set-up decreasing pump wear and energy cost.

Heart of Industry Award Winner

The project to replace two PWOC pumps equipped with OEM supplied CD4MCUN Duplex Nitrogen Enhanced impellers is one of our successes. During a recent down one of the pumps was disassembled in order to gauge wear on the impeller and other components.The reduction in energy costs is significant; however, the other benefit that we all relate to here is the reduced time and effort spent on maintaining equipment that prematurely fails. So far, the new slower rotating, CD4MCUN pump impellers have experience no unusual wear. We have now changed the inventory of 14 other pumps to stock CD4MCUN impellers. We strive for greater up time through continuous improvements as demonstrated by this project. Thank you for your involvement in this project and your continuing support.

National Cooperative Refinery Association

National Cooperative Refinery Association

Heart of Industry Award Winner

The entire reliability department at NCRA is utilizing Goulds Pumps split case pumps and upgrading their ANSI population to the iFRAME design to add reliability and longer-lasting equipment to their new expansion projects. By using Goulds Pumps along with the NCRA reliability practices, they are increasing equipment life as well as increasing the mean time between failures. Categories to be recognized: Productivity gains from improved pump-system design Lower operating costs achieved by purchasing or upgrading pumps Higher uptime from enhanced maintenance processes.

When you put the many pieces of the NCRA puzzle together, you get the picture of an energy company that takes crude oil pumped right out of the ground, and makes it into gasoline and diesel fuel ready to be used in cars, boats, trucks, and farm equipment. NCRA is also a cooperative, which means they are owned by our customers. As a fuel producer, their roots and purpose is to provide fuel for the farms of Mid-America through their Member-Owners. NCRA requires a wide variety of systems and processes, from the 85,000 barrel-per-day refinery in McPherson, to over 60 trucks and over 1,000 miles of pipelines moving crude oil and finished products to various tanks and terminals -- but most importantly, NCRA requires people. They have an experienced workforce of close to 640 employees who do an excellent job of keeping it all running and moving in the right direction.
