Hurricane Harvey Was No Match For These Pumps
Hurricane Harvey Was No Match For These Pumps

The main lift station serving the waste water treatment plant in Morgan’s Point, Texas, continually experienced problems with its three standard non-clog pumps. The pumps frequently clogged when rainfall totals reached or exceeded 2 inches. Shop rags, pieces of 2 x 4 lumber, plastic bottles, gloves, and wet wipes all commonly clogged the pumps when the standard demand increased. Pump removal, unplugging, and recurring repairs were required, but the service company was not always available for immediate assistance, causing problems for residents serviced by this lift station.

Flygt Adaptive Mixers Flygt Adaptive Mixers

The only constant in wastewater treatment is change. Whether because of daily variation or long term population growth, the process demands of wastewater treatment shift constantly. By controlling the output of their mixers, plants can realize significant energy savings and be prepared to adapt their mixing to variations and future changes. With an integrated drive and remote operation, Flygt 4220 put you in complete control, while the next-generation design ensures a lifetime of reliable, efficient operation.

Monster Wash Press Monster Wash Press

JWC Environmental’s Monster Wash Press (MWP) cleans and compacts the discharge from headworks screens, separating water and organics from the solids.  It features a Muffin Monster® grinder to pre-condition screenings before entering the Monster Wash Press.  The grinder breaks open rags, plastics and trash to promote washing and removal of soft organics.  The patent-pending paddle rotor in the active wash zone agitates the material to enhance water penetration throughout the debris for even better removal of the organics from the solids.  Organics are washed back into the wastewater treatment process and the solids are compacted into a dry, less odorous solid plug.  The Monster Wash Press is designed for easy maintenance.  The rotor and field replaceable screen can be removed via the top of the unit, minimizing the clearance space needed around the unit during maintenance.  A grinderless version of the Monster Wash Press is also available.

Cutting Sewage Problems Down To Size Cutting Sewage Problems Down To Size

For the past 10 to 15 years, wastewater treatment operators have faced increased clogging issues related to baby wipes, disposable diapers, rags, and other foreign debris. At the same time, the use of low-flow toilets has increased the solids concentration of sewage flow. This discussion with Brad Jernigan and Christina Foster from Pentair addresses differences between how grinder pumps (low flow/high head) and chopper pumps (higher flow/lower head) can benefit that situation. They also compare the advantages of how axial-cutter design vs. radial-cutter design can aid in shredding large debris, bit by bit, without sucking it into the body of the pump where it can clog and shut down the unit.

Wet Wipes Clog Sewer Systems Wet Wipes Clog Sewer Systems

Wet wipes, and premoistened personal wipes, now ubiquitous alongside toilet tissue in the supermarket aisle, are causing problems for wastewater plant managers. They are incompatible with sewage treatment technology and they’re forced to spend the millions of dollars each year to pull gobs of wipes out of their systems.
