N-Pumps And Multismart Pump Station Controls Reduce Costs And Improve Efficiency In Missouri
The Sni-A-Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) serves the nearby cities of Blue Springs and Grain Valley, MO. In 2013, the city of Blue Springs completed an expansion project to increase plant capacity and improve effluent discharge, allowing the Sni-A-Bar WWTP to meet more stringent environmental requirements mandated by the EPA and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR).
Xylem To Supply Specialized Mixing Equipment To Help Reduce Passage Times Through The Panama Canal
Xylem, a leading global water technology company focused on addressing the world’s most challenging water issues, has won a contract to provide specialized mixer equipment and associated technology as part of a significant development of the Panama Canal.
N-Technology Impeller Pumps Eliminate FOG Buildup At Resort And Casino
The successful addition of new restaurants and clubs at a resort and casino in Upstate NY brought with them a flow of fats, oil and grease (FOG), which gelled into a floating blanket atop the main station’s wet well, where the sewage flows converge from the network of smaller stations throughout the property boundaries.
N-Pumps Resolve Clogging Problems, Reduce Energy Consumption
In the past, a lift station operation in Ohio had to send crews out daily to unclog one or more pump stations in the county service area. Chronic blockages were attributed to pump design, byproduct grease from restaurants, and medical waste from assisted living and nursing homes along the lines.
Mixers Prevent Buildup And Reduce Wetwell Cleaning Charges
The City of Reno, NV, has long battled the buildup of fats, oils, and grease in the wetwells of wastewater lift stations in the valleys within this high desert city. Recently, the city set out to address the problem and reduce the associated costs.
Flygt Mixers Clear Sediment And Save Man-Hours For San Antonio Utility
For almost 50 years, CPS Energy of San Antonio has drawn water from the San Antonio River to recharge two man-made lakes that provide cooling water for their power plants.
Mixers Clear FOG And Reduce Operating Costs By More Than 80%
The Cypress Creek WWTP in Florence, AL, uses an extended aeration activated sludge process with a design capacity of 20 million gallons per day (MGD). Cypress Creek serves mostly residential customers, but about 15 percent of its influent comes from industrial sources, and their discharge to the plant contains large amounts of fats, oils, and grease (FOG).
Clogging Problem Solved; Maintenance Cost Reduced; 15 Percent Less Power Consumption Delivered
A WWTP facility in Indiana serves a six-square-mile area, and has historically experienced pronounced peak flows caused by nearly one-fourth of its collection system consisting of combined storm water and sanitary sewer lines.
Equipment Chosen For Efficiency And Reliability In Lift Station Overhaul
The 5.8 million gallon per day (mgd) Fairwood Lift Station, one of 76 major stations in the Hot Springs system, experienced frequent overflows. Particularly, the station struggled during heavy rainfall events or when pumps clogged because of increasingly popular "disposable" products such as duster heads, cleaning cloths, and disinfecting wipes, which can build up on the leading edge of the pump impeller and become entangled, reducing the efficiency of the pump or even causing a complete stoppage.
ABOUT FLYGT -- A XYLEM BRAND
Flygt - A Xylem Brand is the originator of the heavy duty electrical submersible pump. We have been manufacturing high quality heavy duty equipment since 1901, and continue to provide support, expertise and the highest quality products available for pumping and mixing contaminated and abrasive liquids.
At Flygt we understand that the total Life Cycle Cost of ownership means more than merely having an efficient motor. Providing products that unequivocally possess the highest sustained energy and hydraulic efficiencies within the wastewater marketplace is what makes lifelong customers.
The new and innovative solids handling Flygt N Pump technology sets the standard for clog free operation while delivering sustained high efficiencies -- even in the toughest wastewater and sludge applications. Key to the N-Pump's design is the dynamic interaction of the extreme back-swept impeller vanes, and the stationary relief groove in the volute suction where the leading edge of each impeller vane is cleaned during pump rotation. Our N-Technology delivers trouble-free pump operation and is available in Flygt submersible pumps ranging in size from 3 to 500 horsepower. Please note that many older existing Flygt pumps can be upgraded with today's innovative N-Technology.
The Flygt N Pump’s revolutionary, patented self-cleaning impeller design provides a flow path through the pump, greatly reducing the risk of clogging, and makes the N-Pump series an ideal solution for high-efficiency pumping over long duty periods. That means lower overall energy consumption: a significant factor in reducing the whole life cost of your pumping operation. Contact your local Flygt Product office or representative for more information, and be sure to ask about our Energy Savings Guarantee.
Our Flygt Submersible Propeller Pumps move large volumes of water within low to medium head applications. They are smaller than non-submersible offerings as the motor and hydraulics are integrated into one compact unit, resulting in smaller pumping stations that are less complex and thus more cost effective to build. Operating submerged they take up less space while noise and motor cooling problems are eliminated. With individual pump capacities from 4,000 to 120,000 GPM, Flygt brand Propeller Pumps have been used in a variety of applications such as: storm water, raw water, WWTP effluent, amusement park attractions, surf riders and flood control.
Flygt Pressure Sewer Systems (PSS) provide an efficient, cost effective method to sewer your residential land development projects. Flygt low pressure systems give contractors an all-in-one packaged approach to pressurized sewage system applications.

Flat topography, low elevation, and high rainfall conspire to make collection and treatment a hassle in Jefferson Parish, LA, requiring more than 500 lift stations to get the job done. Learn how a new wastewater pumping system virtually eliminated maintenance and reduced energy consumption by as much as 75%.
With lift stations set among households and a pristine lake, failure is not an option for the Valley Rural Utility Company in Lawrenceburg, IN. The old lift stations were costing up to $30,000/year to maintain, due to poor design and persistent clogging. A new Flygt N-Pump has changed the utility’s course, however, proving with one (easy) installation the cost savings that can be gained through advanced impeller technology and remote SCADA operability.
More than two years ago, Jefferson Parish, LA, installed Flygt Experior pumps at their worst-performing lift stations — sites that were plagued by clogging, overflows, and daily maintenance requirements. One of the main culprits was nonwoven fabrics, aka "flushable" wipes, which have become a nationwide nuisance for wastewater utilities.
