WASTEWATER PUMPS CASE STUDIES AND WHITE PAPERS

AMERICAN’s Versatility Shines In Rocky Terrain

Murfreesboro, Tennessee, is the fastest growing city in Tennessee, and one of the fastest growing cities in the United States with its population more than doubling since 2000.

  • WWTP Reaches Clog-Free Operation With Self-Cleaning Impellers
    WWTP Reaches Clog-Free Operation With Self-Cleaning Impellers

    As with many plants modified for activated sludge treatment, the existing infrastructure at the Adams Field Wastewater Treatment Plant in Little Rock, AR, allowed rags and other debris to clog the impellers of the submersible pumps. One of the plant’s two 15-horsepower pumps was replaced with an 18-horsepower RAS submersible pump with a self-cleaning impeller, virtually eliminating the clogging problem by simply pumping away any debris that reaches the pump intakes.

  • Minimizing Energy Use At Pump Stations With Extreme Variable Flows
    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.

    Lift stations are remote pumping facilities that move wastewater from lower to higher elevation. Monitoring lift stations is important to collection system operators.

  • Oil-Filled VS. Air-Filled Premium Efficient Motors
    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.

  • Fairbanks Nijhuis Protecting New Orleans

    Originally constructed from the 1920s to 1949, the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW) is one of America’s most remarkable transportation arteries. The New Orleans District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers operates and maintains the GIWW in Louisiana, and maintains its six locks for both navigation and agricultural purposes.

Demystifying Explosion Proof Submersible Pumps

When the discussion turns to requirements for “explosion-proof” pumps, many people rely on word of mouth, past practices or even old wives tales it seems. By Kevin Clemons
