Vertical Turbine Solids-Handling Pumps Offer Reduced Construction Costs

Sept. 3, 2014
The single-sump design eliminates the need for an additional or dry sump, suction piping, dehumidification or sump pumps

Unattended pump stations require pumps that are reliable and will keep working, no matter what. Fairbanks Nijhuis vertical turbine solids-handling (VTSH) pumps offer sustained performance, a design that resists clogging and minimum-size driving motors and controls to reduce construction and operating costs.

Applications include:

  • • Sewage lift stations;
  • • Water treatment plants;
  • • Fibrous sludge and slurry handling;
  • • Pulp handling;
  • • General industrial solids handling;
  • • Flood and storm water control; and
  • • Wastewater collection and treatment.

The VTSH pump design puts the entire drive system and controls above the flood plane and is compatible with virtually any drive system. This design means personnel do not have to enter wet wells for routine maintenance because drive motors are above grade as well, eliminating the need for submersible drives.

This single-sump design also eliminates the need for an additional or dry sump, suction piping, dehumidification or sump pumps which can save up to 70% on total construction costs compared to conventional wet-pit/dry-pit designs. In addition, their design makes VTSH pumps more efficient over a broad capacity range than conventional solids-handling pumps.

Versatile, compact and streamlined, the VTSH is a natural fit for space-saving pump applications such as conventional wet wells, self-cleaning and confined wet wells.
