A progressive private utilities company in Louisiana was chomping at the bit to try new pump station technology that would eliminate clogs and unscheduled maintenance, all the while saving power.
London’s Heathrow Airport is one of Europe’s busiest airports catering for more than 200,000 passengers each day with an average of 1,200 flights arriving and departing from the airport daily. Heathrow Airport Water Services Department has an extensive network of 120 pumping stations to manage and they agreed to install and trial Xylem’s new state-of-the-art Flygt wastewater pumping system in an effort to solve chronic clogging issues at one of the airport’s wastewater pumping stations.
Operators of a municipal wastewater pumping station in the rural town of Lomma on Sweden’s south-western coast agreed to install and trial a revolutionary new wastewater pumping system in an effort to solve clogging issues at the pump station.
Operators of a wastewater pumping station at Sultan Qaboos University in Oman were facing serious clogging issues, having to frequently lift the station’s pump and manually remove waste solids and grease build-up.Furthermore, as the station couldn’t handle the flow during peak hours, it was not unusual to have overflows that would reach the adjacent roads.
The city of Crystal Lake, IL, was able to parlay a longterm solid relationship with a major pump manufacturer into a clogging solution for one pump station, cost-saving standardization and reduced inventory across its remaining pump stations, and significant energy savings.
The City of Fond du Lac estimates energy savings at 20 percent at the Wild Life Acres lift station after installing the Concertor system. Bothersome, time-consuming, and expensive cleaning call outs have also been reduced, as confirmed by monitoring system tracking the lift station operation both before and after the introduction of Concertor.
Lift stations in wastewater collection system are challenging to monitor, control and operate for a variety of reasons — but solutions are available to deal with these issues.
In wastewater collection systems, raw sewage flows through gravity sewers to lift stations, which transfer the waste from lower elevation to higher elevations and eventually to a treatment plant. By Endress+Hauser, Inc.
As the world becomes increasingly connected, the integration of smart devices and tools, such as sensors, process control devices, security cameras, for example, have increased the need for well-established, secure machine-to-machine (M2M) communication and networking solutions. Many companies depend on effective communication technologies to reduce overhead costs and improve their bottom lines. By Paul Mercier, Regional Manager for OEM, Utility and Energy Markets, FreeWave Technologies, Inc.
Lift stations are remote pumping facilities that move wastewater from lower to higher elevation. Monitoring lift stations is important to collection system operators.
Providing water distribution monitoring solutions since 1987, Telog continues to offer the industry’s leading remote data acquisition system including the most comprehensive family of battery powered, environmentally rugged wireless monitors available from any single supplier.
In the fields of water and waste water technology, submersible pumps represent a viable economic and technical alternative to conventional, dry-installed pumps. In particular, they offer a number of handling advantages during maintenance and installation work, a factor of increasing importance in times of general staff cutbacks by operating companies.
Liqui-Cel® Membrane Contactors have a long history of improving a variety of water treatment systems by adding and/or removing dissolved gasses. Liqui-Cel Contactors were recently selected to be used in a municipal environment to improve water distribution efficiency while reducing capital and operating costs.
