  • Pumping Station CSI – Case Studies

    These case studies show the results of what happens when modifications to a pumping station are conducted without an engineering investigation, and what can be avoided when one is performed. There are many competing interests for a municipality’s resources and careful decisions have to be made when deciding what needs are to be met. The purpose of the presentation of these case studies is not to ...

  • Technology Emphasis: Hurricane Help

    The past decade has ravaged Florida from its panhandle to the Keys, with five major hurricanes. In 2010, the city of Tallahassee determined that, for several of its master sanitary pump stations, adequate backup pumping capacity was necessary to continue basic services during the types of power outages that the hurricane seasons of previous years had brought. As a result, the city of Tallahassee ...

  • T-T project`s supply 11 pumping stations case study

    T-T Projects have recently completed a scheme in South Wales providing eleven pumping stations on a nickel refinery plant called Vale Inco in Clydach who are owned by Brazilian mining giant CVRD (short for Companhia Vale do Rio Doce).

  • Goodness, gracious – great balls of fat

    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 ...

  • Model Testing Optimizes and Verifies Design of a 200-MGD Trench Wet Well for the Sugar Creek WWTP

    Charlotte-Mecklenburg Utilities (CMUD) and CDM are currently involved in the design of several treatment plant upgrades at the Sugar Creek wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in Charlotte, North Carolina. Implementation of this project, which includes a 200-million-gallonper- day (mgd) screenings and influent pump station with dual self-cleaning trench-type wet wells, will provide CMUD with the ...

  • Pump Stations: CSV vs VFD case study

    None of the problems associated with VFD exist when using a Cycle Stop Valve for control. With a CSV, the motor is always spinning at full RPM, but the amps are reduced similarly to varying the speed. When the motor is spinning at full speed, the cooling fan always provides adequate cooling. Spinning at full speed also means there are no problems with resonance frequency vibrations. Running on ...

  • Computation Fluid Dynamic Modeling of a Proposed Influent Pump Station

    Traditionally pump intake hydraulics have been investigated using scale physical hydraulic models. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a rapidly improving technology that in some cases can be used as a cost or time effective alternative to traditional physical model methods for evaluation of pump intake hydraulics. This paper presents a case study on the use of CFD modeling to re-evaluate and ...
