WASTEWATER PUMP CASE STUDIES AND WHITE PAPERS
Energy costs have become an increasing contributor to pumping systems Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In fact, energy cost represents 40% of the TCO of a typical pump. It is possible to reduce the electrical consumption by at least 30% utilizing Variable Speed Drives while decreasing maintenance costs associated with the mechanical driven system. This paper explains how to reduce TCO with a limited investment focused on three key areas: energy efficiency management, asset management, and energy cost management.
Minimizing Energy Use At Pump Stations With Extreme Variable Flows
Every spring, the wastewater municipality in Dalarna, Sweden, experienced melting snow and heavy rainfall that caused a dramatic increase in pump station inflow. To handle this seasonal volume, the station had oversized pumps that consumed more energy than needed during drier months. This case study illustrates how the installation of a variable-speed pump controller decreased energy consumption by almost 50 percent while allowing for variations in flow.

Dry-Pit Submersible Pumps Replace Oversized Long-Shaft Pumps
After anticipated growth of the New Jersey casino industry fell short, Atlantic City Sewerage Company’s Baltic Avenue Pump Station was left with grossly-oversized long-shaft sewage pumps that operated inefficiently and were prone to cavitation.
Oil-Filled VS. Air-Filled Premium Efficient Motors
If one debate over a specific design feature stands out amongst all the others in the submersible waste water pump field, it must be, “Which is better, air-filled or oil-filled motors”? With The introduction of premium efficient motors by several manufactures, this topic has come to the forefront once again.
Premium Efficient Shaft Grounding Rings VFD Operation
When a motor is operated on a variable frequency drive, unexpected voltage can be induced on the rotor and shaft.
