PUMP STATION MONITORING RESOURCES

  • The Drake Pump Station, located in Saginaw, Michigan experienced chronic pump maintenance due to flushable wipes. Although the dry pit pump station represented only 0.1 million gallons per day (mgd) of flow in the city’s collection network, it required a substantial amount of servicing – up to three times a week. This consisted of two operators spending four hours manually removing rags in a confined space entry to clean out the clogged pump. It was a dirty, unplanned, and time-consuming task.

  • Sewage spills in Florida are frequent. A newspaper report in 2019 found deteriorating sewers released 1.6 billion gallons of wastewater within a decade in communities throughout the state. Daytona Beach, Jacksonville, and even tony Boca Raton, labeled the “Beverly Hills of Florida” with its yacht clubs and fancy restaurants, were among the regions impacted by failing systems.

  • Wastewater treatment plant operators have dealt with clogging problems at their plants and pump stations for decades, but the meteoric rise in the use of disposable wipes and other non-dispersible products has accelerated the problem to epidemic proportions.

  • Electric submersible pump is another game-changing rental solution

  • Lift stations are an essential component of many municipal and industrial wastewater collection systems to move sewage from low to high elevation. Such is the case for the John Street lift station in Monroe County, New York, which serves both a large residential community and the nearby campus of Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT).

  • For decades, the standard in temporary bypass pumping has been diesel-powered portable pumps, and for good reason: Their flexibility and the ability to set them up anywhere has made them the go-to choice. But with fluctuating fuel and rising servicing costs, as well as growing interest in cleaner, greener sources of power, electric-drive pumps can be a viable alternative for project needs, especially for longer-term projects.

  • Sulzer pumps are customized to meet the unique requirements of an historic pumping station.

  • Pablo Garcia, Global Business Development Manager at Sulzer, looks at how tunneling operations can be affected by the choice of pumping equipment used for dewatering.

  • Sulzer-led award-winning project improves performance and control of sewage pumping stations.

  • Prison sewage often contains extra trash, towels, and rags that enter the sewerage network and cause pump clogging problems. When a correctional facility underwent a capacity expansion, changes to its problematic submersible sewage pumping station coincided, resulting in a new operator-safe approach to combatting the ills of prison sewage pump clogs.

PUMP STATION MONITORING SOLUTIONS

  • Schreiber Screw Pump

    Schreiber’s screw pumps utilize a unique single row, self-aligning, combination radial / thrust lower, spherical roller support bearing with a minimum L-10 life of 100,000 hours. The lower bearing lubrication system is simple and reliable by requiring only a transparent oil reservoir and feed tube to provide oil by gravity, without elaborate pressurized grease systems and their inherent operational concerns. A simple pillow block or flanged bearing provides radial support at the upper shaft.

  • LIFT Series Wastewater System Lift Station

    Newterra® LIFT Series wastewater lift stations are designed to transfer sewage and grey water from the point of generation to the newterra wastewater treatment plant.

  • Sewage Lift Station Pumping System

    Lack of sufficient straight pipe run made it impossible to successfully apply the preferred magnetic flow meter (magmeter) to accurately measure the flow of raw sewage.

  • Channel Monster Flex

    The patent pending Channel Monster FLEX consists of a FLEX Grinder and a Solids Diverter with perforated screen connected by a FLEX Frame. The Channel Monster FLEX continues the Channel Monster legacy of high flow capacity while capturing and shredding rags, rocks, wood, and other solids into small pieces to pass harmlessly through pumps, pipes, and process equipment.

  • X-PELLER® Non-Clog Pump Impeller

    The X-PELLER® was specifically designed for high volumes of trash pumping applications and low flow conditions in 4" (75-800 GPM), 6" (75-1,000 GPM) and 8" (300-1,700 GPM) vacuum primed and flooded suction Smith & Loveless pumps.
