Pump Station Protection: Hurricane Debris No Match For Duperon FlexRake HDSource: Duperon Corporation
When severe storms hit, it’s vital for pumps to maintain operation – in spite of the conditions. Such was the case in hurricane-ravaged Louisiana, where the Duperon® FlexRake® was put to the test.
When Hurricanes Katrina and Rita struck the Gulf Coast, the impact was immediate and devastating. Several Duperon® FlexRake® installations in the area shield pumps — vital to keeping parishes above water during storm events — from debris that could clog or damage them. One such installation is Davis Pond Fresh Water Diversion Pumping Station, located in St. Charles Parish in Luling, LA. This installation is located approximately 50 miles north of Hurricane Katrina’s landfall.
