COVID-19 Modern Trash Loading Proves Sewage Pump Clog Resistance Cannot Be Predicted By Impeller Throughlet Size
The ever-increasing collection system loading rate exacerbated by the effects of COVID-19 further exposes the traditional multi-channel solids-handling impeller as unable to operate without partial to full clogging with soft solids.
Bill Skovsted, National Sales Manager - Custom Pump for Flygt -- A Xylem Brand, discusses how you can take your budget further by reutilizing your existing plant infrastructure at the Water Online Virtual Water Expo.
Built in the 1980s, Little Blue Valley Sewer District operates Atherton, which was designed to reduce the primary process chain to preliminary bar screening and aerated grit removal, while relying solely on secondary treatment performed in four, standalone 42-ft by 400-ft aeration/clarification basins.
The collection system in Thief River Falls, Minnesota serves 8,500 residents. 14 pump stations are situated along 43 miles of sewage collection lines. The 350-acre complex of ponds in Northwest Minnesota represents the state’s largest of its type and produces a higher quality effluent well below the minimum effluent standards discharged into the Red Lake River.
The scenic community of Waupaca, Wisconsin derived its name from the translation of a Native American term meaning “clear water”.
Robert Dohm knows a lot about fluid-handling pumps.
JEA, formerly Jacksonsonville Electric Authority, ranks among the nation’s largest and most efficient community-owned electric, water and sewer utilities.
The city of Haverhill, MA, a community of 68,000, shares much in common with the sewage infrastructure of other long-established New England municipalities.
The purpose of this white paper is to contribute to a better understanding of how Life Cycle Cost calculations can support the design and selection of more cost-effective wastewater pumping systems.
Mixing is performed in many stages of wastewater treatment to generate a hydrodynamic state that secures blending, solids suspension, or distribution. Conventional single-speed submersible mixers have traditionally been used for these applications, including activated sludge treatment, sludge holding and digestion. Mixer selection is typically based on accommodating a plant’s peak design load.
Today’s customers can have higher pump system reliability, more and smarter functions, lower operating costs and data connectivity when pumping wastewater using an intelligent pumping system.
Clogging is the most common problem in wastewater pumping and a particular issue for small pumps due to their limited hydraulic space. The consequences include increased energy consumption, additional maintenance and emergency call-outs, all of which result in higher operating costs. Wastewater pump manufacturers are continually striving to develop improved hydraulics that reduce clogging while maintaining high performance.
Smaller Oklahoma city upgrades their wastewater treatment plant’s sludge handling system using the latest intelligent equipment. The new pumps went into service in April and May 2017 and the staff is thrilled that they have experienced no clogging.
A northern New Jersey town decided to upgrade their main station utilizing the same equipment that has provided them with decades of reliable and trouble free service. When replacement options arose, the city immediately elected to stay with Flygt due to their positive experience with the quality and reliability of the equipment, combined with the availability of local service.

ABOUT FLYGT -- A XYLEM BRAND
Flygt - A Xylem Brand is the originator of the heavy duty electrical submersible pump. We have been manufacturing high quality heavy duty equipment since 1901, and continue to provide support, expertise and the highest quality products available for pumping and mixing contaminated and abrasive liquids.
At Flygt we understand that the total Life Cycle Cost of ownership means more than merely having an efficient motor. Providing products that unequivocally possess the highest sustained energy and hydraulic efficiencies within the wastewater marketplace is what makes lifelong customers.
The new and innovative solids handling Flygt N Pump technology sets the standard for clog free operation while delivering sustained high efficiencies -- even in the toughest wastewater and sludge applications. Key to the N-Pump's design is the dynamic interaction of the extreme back-swept impeller vanes, and the stationary relief groove in the volute suction where the leading edge of each impeller vane is cleaned during pump rotation. Our N-Technology delivers trouble-free pump operation and is available in Flygt submersible pumps ranging in size from 3 to 500 horsepower. Please note that many older existing Flygt pumps can be upgraded with today's innovative N-Technology.
The Flygt N Pump’s revolutionary, patented self-cleaning impeller design provides a flow path through the pump, greatly reducing the risk of clogging, and makes the N-Pump series an ideal solution for high-efficiency pumping over long duty periods. That means lower overall energy consumption: a significant factor in reducing the whole life cost of your pumping operation. Contact your local Flygt Product office or representative for more information, and be sure to ask about our Energy Savings Guarantee.
Our Flygt Submersible Propeller Pumps move large volumes of water within low to medium head applications. They are smaller than non-submersible offerings as the motor and hydraulics are integrated into one compact unit, resulting in smaller pumping stations that are less complex and thus more cost effective to build. Operating submerged they take up less space while noise and motor cooling problems are eliminated. With individual pump capacities from 4,000 to 120,000 GPM, Flygt brand Propeller Pumps have been used in a variety of applications such as: storm water, raw water, WWTP effluent, amusement park attractions, surf riders and flood control.

Flat topography, low elevation, and high rainfall conspire to make collection and treatment a hassle in Jefferson Parish, LA, requiring more than 500 lift stations to get the job done. Learn how a new wastewater pumping system virtually eliminated maintenance and reduced energy consumption by as much as 75%.
With lift stations set among households and a pristine lake, failure is not an option for the Valley Rural Utility Company in Lawrenceburg, IN. The old lift stations were costing up to $30,000/year to maintain, due to poor design and persistent clogging. A new Flygt N-Pump has changed the utility’s course, however, proving with one (easy) installation the cost savings that can be gained through advanced impeller technology and remote SCADA operability.
More than two years ago, Jefferson Parish, LA, installed Flygt Experior pumps at their worst-performing lift stations — sites that were plagued by clogging, overflows, and daily maintenance requirements. One of the main culprits was nonwoven fabrics, aka "flushable" wipes, which have become a nationwide nuisance for wastewater utilities.
