An optimized pump and slurry system can make or break a business in the Canadian Oil Sands. Costing up to $100,000 per hour due to lost production, it’s no secret that sites plagued by frequent shutdowns, pump malfunctions, or constant parts replacements struggle to control costs.
Mixing activated sludge to a velocity of 0.03 meters/second is important because it keeps bacteria in motion, avoids sedimentation and optimizes the biological wastewater treatment process. Water Talk recently caught up with Michael Lebkuecher, Director of Product Management for Solids Handling Pumps and Rainer Kutzko, Senior Project Engineer, both with KSB to learn more about mixing considerations.
As KSB continues to produce superior technology to #ConquerTheClog in wastewater pumping applications, visit WEFTEC Booth #4651 to experience the latest technology to conquer today’s waste water challenges.
Anyone remember the old cars of the 1950s and 1960s? They all pretty much came equipped with an ammeter, an oil pressure gauge, a water temperature gauge, as well as a speedometer and a fuel level gauge. Then came the ’70s, ’80s, even the ’90s and turn of the century cars, where “idiot lights” replaced the ammeter, oil pressure and water temperature gauges. Now the latest up-to-date vehicles have again returned to certain analog gauges, and digital read-outs, as well as computerized “information centers” that tell the operator more than they possibly ever wanted to know about their vehicle.
Just 20 years ago, many professionals did not consider using variable frequency drives (VFDs) in wastewater applications. Frequency converters were relatively expensive, and experience using them with the special conditions and requirements in wastewater was limited.
Every utility fights a battle against sewer clogs and the potential sanitary sewer overflows that may result. The increasing use of personal wipe products and their improper disposal has worsened the problem. Operators and technicians often crawl into confined spaces or hoist pumps out of wet wells to wrestle with rag monsters. KSB is well aware of this issue and is leading a campaign to “Conquer the Clog.” Water Online spoke with Horst Sturm, vice president of business development for KSB, Inc., to discuss their take on the problem.
KSB, Inc.’s expertise in Conquering the Clog in wastewater pumping is enhanced with the U.S. launch of the state-of-the-art F-max impeller technology. KSB experts will be at WEFTEC 2016 Booth #4351 to demonstrate the superior effectiveness of this impeller design.
KSB’s research centers focus on hydraulics, materials technology and energy-saving motors and equipment to ensure high overall energy efficiencies. Customers benefit from innovative ideas and dedication of more than 16,000 employees.
