The Suffolk County Department of Public Works Stony Brook Pump Station was facing on-going interruptions to pumping operations as a result of “ragging”—a common challenge in wastewater pumping where a build-up of fibrous materials leads to frequent pump blockages. Xylem proposed its new, ground breaking technology—Flygt Concertor, the world’s first wastewater pumping system with integrated intelligence— as a solution to this challenge, delivering positive results: ragging was significantly reduced and clogging was eliminated.
