Sulzer engineers helped a plant in the Netherlands cut its energy costs with a turnkey project
Picking The Perfect Pump
Pumps and pumping systems are like unsung heroes of modern society – quickly and quietly transporting vital water supplies, chemicals and waste to and from locations, which rely upon their consistent, reliable operation.
AMERICAN’s Versatility Shines In Rocky Terrain
Murfreesboro, Tennessee, is the fastest growing city in Tennessee, and one of the fastest growing cities in the United States with its population more than doubling since 2000.
Tackling 'Flushable' Wipes The Intelligent Way
Wet wipes labeled as “flushable” create costly pump clogs and time wasted for collection system operators. But the problem can be resolved before it starts.
Michigan Utility’s New Pumps Underscore Advancements In Wastewater Handling
Ypsilanti’s pumps, originally put into service in 1982, became priority candidates for replacement after operating ten years beyond their expected 20 year service life. The Ypsilanti Community Utilities Authority (YCUA), included the project in the utility’s Master Plan.
Pump Stations Go Undercover (And Viral)
For all the expert and vital work done in the water, wastewater, and stormwater industries, it generally doesn’t make great party conversation. Unfortunately, the efforts are so taken for granted that they go largely unnoticed by the general public. So how is it that a YouTube video about a pump station garners nearly million views and counting?
WWTP Reaches Clog-Free Operation With Self-Cleaning Impellers
As with many plants modified for activated sludge treatment, the existing infrastructure at the Adams Field Wastewater Treatment Plant in Little Rock, AR, allowed rags and other debris to clog the impellers of the submersible pumps. One of the plant’s two 15-horsepower pumps was replaced with an 18-horsepower RAS submersible pump with a self-cleaning impeller, virtually eliminating the clogging problem by simply pumping away any debris that reaches the pump intakes.
Lift Station Reduces Clogging, Lowers Operating Expenses With Self-Cleaning Pumps
Aging pumps at Jackson Energy Authority’s Rolling Acres Lift Station (Jackson, Tenn.) resulted in frequent clogging and outages that required costly maintenance and repair.
Dry-Pit Submersible Pumps Replace Oversized Long-Shaft Pumps
After anticipated growth of the New Jersey casino industry fell short, Atlantic City Sewerage Company’s Baltic Avenue Pump Station was left with grossly-oversized long-shaft sewage pumps that operated inefficiently and were prone to cavitation.
A Guide To Wastewater Pump Materials: Selecting The Right Materials To Extend System Life And Raise Performance
Wastewater can be both corrosive and abrasive. To ensure reliable and cost-effective pump operation, it is important to select a wastewater pump made from the most suitable material for your wastewater.
