Go Big With CAPSULAR Underground Pump Station For Large Flows
Handling large capacities, the CAPSULAR® Underground Pump Station combines superior performance with custom design and economic efficiency to provide solutions for customers' large flow applications. When compared to built-in-place, concrete designs, 30% savings can be realized with the S&L factory-built approach. Engineering costs are lower because of the extensive engineering (including mechanical, electrical, structural, environmental) already accomplished for the proven CAPSULAR® design. The exclusive Safe-Stair Stairwell Module available with CAPSULAR® Underground Pump Stations is similar to stairways found in most public buildings. The design provides safe and easy access to the underground station, reducing occupational requirements and associated costs.
'Series' Wastewater Pumping Solves Unique Challenge Of High Head Force Mains
In high-head wastewater pumping applications that result from long force mains or high-static heads from hilly terrains, lift station design engineers typically select oversized pumps that sufficiently overcome the inherent friction losses. However, a dramatic reduction in efficiency occurs at the pump operates far from its best efficiency point. In these situations, the use of vacuum-primed pumps arranged in series can achieve higher pumping efficiencies and lower resulting power costs.
Design Considerations For Packaged MBR Systems
Applying Membrane Bioreactors (MBR) in lieu of conventional activated sludge systems delivers higher effluent quality while eliminating secondary clarification processes. These systems incorporate flat-sheet or hollow-fiber membranes with pore sizes measured in micrometers or nanometers, which allow for complete retention of solids inside the treatment system.
Above Ground Pumping Revolutionizes Texas School District’s Operations
For most small to medium-sized operations groups like Klein Independent School District in the suburbs of Houston, the conventional choice of submersible wastewater pumps holds little wisdom. Above-ground pump stations reduce exposure to designated confined spaces, and associated safety requirements, allowing these groups to operate in a more convenient and cost-effective manner.
Refinery Treats Groundwater Contamination While Saving Precious Facility Space
A large, Midwestern oil refinery installed two identical, 110’ diameter S&L Model R OXIGEST® treatment systems to solve a groundwater treatment problem on-site. Each plant incorporates aeration, clarification, and effluent holding, treating peak flows of 7.2 MGD combined; 4.3 MGD in each plant.
California Collection System Marks Eight Years Of Non-Clog Pumping
Six wastewater pumps in operation, serving multiple resort locations, for eight total years. What does this equation add up to? ZERO pump clogs, once you factor in X-PELLER® Non-Clog Impellers.
