“N” Pump Handles Atlantic Salmon Waste

The pumping station at Heritage Salmon, an international salmon grower and Processor, pumps salmon fish waste from the upstream collecting tank to the down-stream screen. The existing pump was breaking belts almost every day and clogging the clearance between the impeller and the pump volute. The salmon skin and scales built up very quickly in the very small opening and reduced the clearance inside the hydraulic end. Heritage Salmon challenged Flygt to come up with a pumping solution.
