This pumpstation in Whiteoak Grove, Tinwald was designed to pump wastewater from 84 houses and designed to the Ashburton DC pumpstation standards. Unfortunately due to the location, there was no gravity connection available.
Pump & Valve were asked to look at replacing a drymount stainless steel centrifugal vortex pumping sludge from a DAF plant, the sludge had a high concentration of sand in it, meaning the existing pumps were needing rebuilding almost every year which was a costly exercise.
Pump & Valve were approached by a customer with an application of packaging honey on a plastic jar packaging line. The pump needed to draw from several different tanks, having a suction line up to 6 metres long and the discharge being into the packaging line in the room next door, that fills honey jars varying in size.
