New Condensate Pumps for NYC WWTP

Diaphragm Pump Installation

This was just the case for Coney Island’s condensate vacuum pump operations located less than one hundred feet from an inland waterway that flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Salt water destroyed the existing Mud Hog diaphragm pumps, valve systems and electrical panels causing tens of thousands of dollars worth of damage.

How a Double Disc Pump Works

Double Disc Pump or Single Disc Pump? You Decide.

We have all seen the outside of a double disc pump but rarely do we see what makes the pump actually work. Just to review, a double disc pump is a positive displacement pump that uses a trunnion (elastomer), a disc and a connecting rod to force sewage from the suction side to the discharge side of the pump by creating a vacuum inside the pump body. The valve chambers with the black check valves you see in the photo help to manage higher than normal concentrations of grit and solids in municipal wastewater.

Pumping Out of Totes

You see them everywhere: tote tanks with steel or aluminum cages that temporarily store a variety of liquids including waste oil, septic waste, restaurant grease trap waste and industrial fluids. What many people don’t know is that having a proper diaphragm pump to transfer liquid both into or out of the tank can make all the difference in having safe and clean pumps out versus pump outs that leave the possibility that potentially hazardous liquids may contaminate your job site or drink water.

What’s New in Diaphragm Pumps?

Diaphragm pumps have had quite the evolution over the last few years with new innovations in diaphragm materials, pump body engineering, drive systems and overall design. This evolution is mainly end user driven; more facilities face budget constraints and have thus demanded cost effective solutions for transferring wastewater and slurry (which diaphragm pumps have traditionally offered). Diaphragm pump manufacturers have responded by offering heavy duty pump models that transcend their usual application capabilities and now may be suitable for areas that submersible pumps and trash pumps once dominated. Here’s a partial answer to how this evolution has happened:
