Vacuum Primed Pump Stations Vs. Self-Priming Pumping Stations
Vacuum Primed Pump Stations Vs. Self-Priming Pumping Stations

Both Smith & Loveless Vacuum Primed Pump Stations and competing self-priming stations are able to prime themselves by pulling water into the pump volute. However, the vacuum prime design of S&L EVERLAST™ Wet Well Mounted Pump Stations and Recessed Wet Well Mounted Pump Stations offer better performance, maintainability and reliability compared to self-priming competitors. Click to read some of the reasons why the Smith & Loveless pump station and its vacuum prime pump are superior.

    Award-Winning Design Helps WWTP Protect Chesapeake Bay Watershed

    Arlington County’s Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) in South Arlington, VA, is located on 35 acres of land squeezed into a commercial/residential neighborhood less than a mile west of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. The facility treats flows from nearly all of Arlington. In addition, nearly 20 percent of the plant’s flow comes from neighboring localities such as Alexandria, Fairfax County, and Falls Church. Effluent from the plant is discharged into Four Mile Run to the south, which feeds into the Potomac River and, ultimately, the Chesapeake Bay.

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.

Extending SCADA’s Reach To Remote Resources Extending SCADA’s Reach To Remote Resources

Many water and wastewater treatment plant operators have a desire to ‘see’ and manage key systems beyond the reach of their plant walls and in-house SCADA systems, such as wastewater lift pumps or water distribution pumps. In this Water Talk session, Dave Stout and Ryan Hancock of In Control Technical Solutions discuss an answer that’s as simple as connecting a power cord and two wires. It employs a self-contained cellular modem that any utility can self-install — at a fraction of the cost for traditional remote cellular solutions — and use to monitor remote resources as part of their main SCADA system.

Selecting The Right Control Gate For Your Application Selecting The Right Control Gate For Your Application

Control gates are used throughout the water and wastewater fluid handling process at pump stations, head works, purifiers and a variety of other locations. Beyond application, head pressure, solids content and placement are all critical factors in evaluating what type of control gate will best meet your needs.
