Clean Water Pumping in the Philippines
AuCom soft starters more reliable for Philippines water
After several unsuccessful attempts at using soft starters on their pumping system, Cabanatuan City Water District (CCWD) was reluctant to risk more interruption to their critical municipal water supply. However, AuCom soft starters have been so reliable that CCWD now has a long-term project to install AuCom starters throughout its infrastructure.
AuCom’s representative in the Philippines, Asia Pacific Industrial Equipment Sales and Services (APIESS), introduced CCWD to CSXi soft starters in order to address water hammer and voltage disturbance. The CSXi solved these problems and proved highly reliable, and CCWD were so pleased with the excellent performance that they turned to APIESS to discuss soft starter options for several other installations. CCWD now has a combination of CSXi and EMX3 soft starters in several locations, and is a firm believer in the benefits of AuCom soft starters.
CCWD has been impressed by AuCom’s well-balanced product range, with the CSXi offering a cost-effective option for simple applications and the EMX3 providing an ideal solution for more advanced applications. Using the EMX3, XLR‑8 late deceleration profile gives superior soft stopping performance, and the EMX3’s built-in protections have simplified the installation process. The extensive input and output options, plus the advanced monitoring functions of the EMX3, give CCWD all the information they need to manage their pumping network for maximum efficiency.
CCWD’s Production Manager, Rudy Goduco, is full of praise for APIESS. “APIESS and AuCom have given us superior support and service, and we are so pleased that AuCom soft starters have overcome our previous bad experiences. Our pumping network is now running smoothly and efficiently.”
