With tough sludge pumping applications like those found at municipal Wastewater Treatment Facilities, (WWTP’s) having the right primary sludge pumps can help reduce hassles and your spare parts budget down the road.
One of the best ways to pump out boats ranging from 22’ all the way up to 200’ ferries and commercial vessels is by using a vacuum pump. The higher suction power can pump disposable wipes and other solids found in septic waste relatively quickly so that the next boat can be serviced.
Can a Double Disc Pump Have Ball Valves?
Yes. In fact, ball valve technology is helping to usher in the next era of double disc style pumps. The ball valves help to break up solids and make pumping thicker municipal sewage easier. The ball valves also make it much easier to maintain the pump.
Wastecorp went right to work for HP designing and manufacturing two Mud Sucker 3B Series Professional diaphragm pumps to pump cooling tower condenser water, also called backwash pumps. The pumps were designed to continuously pump the condenser water between 60-80°F. In keeping with HP’s goal of exploring new strategies for reducing the environmental impact of next-generation data centers Wastecorp designed the mud Sucker with energy saving Siemens 3 phase motors and Sew Eurodrive gear boxes. Hp’s Mud Sucker’s were designed in an inline-piping configuration to save space at the facility. Santoprene diaphragms were included to help maximize component life with higher temperature liquids being constant.
Diaphragm pump technology for wastewater pumping, waste oil, septic and food processing applications has advanced. Wastecorp, a designer and manufacturer of diaphragm pumps, has invested in R&D to build better diaphragm pumps.
How to resolve sewage pumping problems at smaller WWTP’s is a question on the minds of thousands of operators worldwide. These facilities pump municipal sewage, storm water, melting snow, road grit and so much more for smaller communities. While the gallons per day pumped may not be as high as urban sewage treatment plants, the need for reliable sludge pumps is just as great. Wastecorp was contacted by a South New Jersey WWTP to provide upgraded sewage pumps to transfer wastewater, sludge and storm water from a smaller holding tank area. The pumps then transfer waste to both the facility’s lift station and digesters. The sewage pumps were also specified to unload local tanker trucks delivering everything from septic waste to waste trap grease and other solids laden liquids.
With agricultural wastewater pumping needs, both government and industry have the challenge of finding pumping equipment that can handle chemical based wastewater like insecticides and PH balancing solutions plus wastewater manure, hair and other solids.
It's always amazing to see how many different uses there are for pumps and the juice production industry is one of the most interesting and growing markets for Wastecorp pump products. One of our customers, Ocean Spray Cranberries Inc. required a pump for its North Bend, Oregon processing facilities The ubiquitous Ocean Spray brand name is synonymous with everything cranberries. In fact, Ocean spray is an agricultural cooperativewith over 650 member growers of cranberries and grapefruit. Ocean Spray produces a variety of juices, dried fruits, fresh fruits and flavored snacks.
The video below shows how to change the trunnion on a Sludge Pro double disc pump. As you can see most of the maintenance is done with the operator standing up and most components visible to the operator.
Many of our wastewater treatment plant operators looking to upgrade their sewage pumps to the next generation plunger pumps have a wide set of options for a no piping change or little alternation to the existing set up. New sewage pumps can help make the facility more efficient and productive. This is available to Komline Sanderson and Carter Plunger Pump customers.
