    Flygt Pumps Handle Too Much Of A Good Thing

    In Iowa, where agriculture is a critical component of the state’s economy, rain is good for crops, but too much rain is not good for anyone. In 2008 the Des Moines Metropolitan Wastewater Reclamation Authority (WRA) retained consulting engineer HDR to provide planning, permitting, design, construction, and start-up services for a high-rate CSO treatment facility called the Combined Sewer Solids Separation Facility or CSSSF.

    Major Lock Expansion In Belgium

    Located on the Belgium-Netherlands’ border, the Lanaye Locks link the Albert and Juliana Canals, the latter of which is a side canal of the River Meuse. The three locks are a vital route between Northern and Southern Europe and have operated alongside each other since 1964 but, as two of these are too narrow to accommodate even smaller convoy, the larger lock had over time become a serious bottle neck for canal traffic.

    A utilities department was experiencing frequent unscheduled maintenance visits and corresponding unbudgeted repair bills for the pumps at the township’s main pump station.

  • Variable Speed Wastewater Pumping
    Variable Speed Wastewater Pumping

    Wastewater pumps have traditionally been operated in an on-off mode for small as well as large wastewater pump stations. Because the inflow of wastewater is varying over time and is often only a fraction of a pump’s required capacity engineers have looked for ways to operate wastewater pumps at a reduced capacity in order to optimize performance while reducing operating costs.

Pneumatic Dynamic Lifter Relief Valve Pneumatic Dynamic Lifter Relief Valve

The Pneumatic Dynamic Lifter is a very responsive compact wastewater relief valve that can handle high pressures and uses a compressed air cylinder to hold the valve closed. This chamber is fitted with a relief pilot that is normally closed as long as the line pressure is lower than the set point. If pressure rises above the set point, the relief pilot opens, causing the air in the cylinder to vent, which in turn opens the valve. The valve closes drip tight when pressure falls below the set point.

Preventing Backflow Preventing Backflow

There are lots of applications in the water and wastewater industry that need backflow prevention. Stormwater drainage systems are a perfect example.  As Mike Duer, Chief Engineer with Red Valve Company explains in this Water Online Radio interview, “water will backflow through the drainage pipe at high tide, come up through the inlets and cause flooding.”

Valve Design Cuts Energy Costs Valve Design Cuts Energy Costs

Realizing energy savings with blowers is a big deal in the wastewater industry right now as utilities try to reign in their energy costs. As Paul Nelson, North American Sales Manager for Egger Turo Pumps points out, the next focus area is going to be energy savings with pumps and valves.
