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.
A WWTP just expanded and upgraded their pump facilities. The facility chose double diaphragm pumps to transfer sewage from digesters for secondary treatment. Project participants included Mud Sucker Diaphragm Pumps and pump manufacturer Wastecorp Pumps.
For years, we have been asking wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) what they like about double disc pumps and what they don’t like. We have even been compiling a database with what regions of the USA and Canada have success with this type of pump for sewage and which areas have had more challenges.
One of the things that most WWTP’s say is that there has been limited competition in the specifications put out for bid by municipalities and consulting engineers working on wastewater projects. As we all know a monopoly in the pump industry is seldom a good thing for quality, innovation and of course pricing for pumps and parts.
At airports around the world, storm water gets mixed with jet fuel during storms and must be properly pumped and treated before returning into the waterways. Most airports have stormwater pumping stations to prevent flood damage, protect the water supply and capture runoff before returning to canals levee’s
