PUMP STATION MONITORING WHITE PAPERS AND CASE STUDIES
Both Smith & Loveless Vacuum Primed Pump Stations and competing self-priming stations are able to prime themselves by pulling water into the pump volute. However, the vacuum prime design of S&L EVERLAST™ Wet Well Mounted Pump Stations and Recessed Wet Well Mounted Pump Stations offer better performance, maintainability and reliability compared to self-priming competitors. Click to read some of the reasons why the Smith & Loveless pump station and its vacuum prime pump are superior.
Analytical Software Predicts Sewer System Blockages
Using historical data and Seeq analytical software, Nukon calculates when sewer blockages will occur up to 13 hours before occurrence, preventing spills.
Award-Winning Design Helps WWTP Protect Chesapeake Bay Watershed
Arlington County’s Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) in South Arlington, VA, is located on 35 acres of land squeezed into a commercial/residential neighborhood less than a mile west of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. The facility treats flows from nearly all of Arlington. In addition, nearly 20 percent of the plant’s flow comes from neighboring localities such as Alexandria, Fairfax County, and Falls Church. Effluent from the plant is discharged into Four Mile Run to the south, which feeds into the Potomac River and, ultimately, the Chesapeake Bay.
Hurricane Tested, Texas Approved
During 2017’s Hurricane Harvey, the wettest tropical storm on record in the United States, over 52 inches of rain fell in the Houston area. The Vaughan pumps ran continuously for 72 hours with no plugging incidents and no problems while pumping over 2.5 million gallons of unscreened sewage through the lift station. It never flooded and none of the 150 homes served by this lift station experienced sewer back-ups.
Level Measurement In Water And Wastewater Lift Stations
Condensation, build up, obstructions and silt can cause difficulties in making reliable level measurements in lift station wet wells. New trends in low cost radar units solve these problems.
Why One Hospital Switched From Submersbile Pumps To S&L Pump Stations
Tough-to-access submersible pumps complicated life and increased costs for maintenance workers at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro, United Kingdom.
Upgraded Pumping System Eliminates Clogging
The pumps that operated at the septage receiving wetwell at the Valley Forge Sewer Authority’s collection system in Phoenixville, PA were constantly clogging.
