They're lurking in the sewers, rolling onwards, growing larger... Fat is a menace to pumping stations. Often forming balls reaching the size of footballs, they can mass in their hundreds, clogging up vital equipment as they float to the surface. The result? Blockages, toxic gases and, ultimately, expensive breakdowns. But they've met their match with a revolutionary new bio-technology - The Bactaerator. By effectively turning your lift station into a bio-reactor blockages and smells are eliminated.
Leachate Collection & Removal Systems – Pump Stations
Romtec Utilities designs and supplies pump stations for many different types of applications, including leachate collection and removal systems. Leachate pump stations are required whenever water passes through a bed of solids and extracts contaminating elements. The most common scenario for collecting and pumping leachate is for landfills, but there are industrial applications as well. Leachate can be corrosive, acidic, and toxic toward all lifeforms and for many years was allowed to runoff into watersheds or...

Pump Station call outs a thing of the past - Case Study
It’s 2:00 AM and a telephone rings in Eckville, Alberta. Rick McKinnon checks the display on his cell phone and groans. It’s another high level call out alarm from one of the town’s new sewage lift stations. He knows before he drives there that the system will be running on floats instead of the new ultrasonic level controller.Rick is Public Works Supervisor for the Town of Eckville. He has to work out most of the issues that occur in the town’s wastewater collection system and the level...
Pump Station in California - Case Study
Client: Glorietta Bay Pump Station in Coronado, California Facility: A Wastewater Pump Station located in a busy public park. Problem: How to eliminate wastewater odors while minimizing the visual impact. Decision: The client chose to use a BOHN BIOFITLE, in-ground biofilter with a grass cover. Outcome: The pump station has an around-the-clock odor control system that blends seamlessly into the park environment.
Field campaign on sediment transport behaviour in a pressure main from pumping station to ...
As part of the project KURAS, the Berliner Wasserbetriebe realized a field campaign in 2015 in order to increase the process knowledge regarding the behaviour of transported sediment in the pressure main leading from the pumpstation to the wastewater treatment plant. The field campaign was conducted because of a lack of knowledge about the general condition of the pressure main due to its bad accessibility and the suspicion of deposits caused by hydraulic underload. The practical evidence of the sediment transport...
