Excellent results pay off for Weir Specialty Pumps
Weir Specialty Pumps was recently approached by a customer to
investigate clogging on a typical non-clog pump installed on a main
influent pump station.
The primary job of the non-clog pump was to handle the station
inflow during periods of low flow, however the pumps inherent
design restricted its performance. Weir Speciality Pumps
recommended its WEMCO-Hidrostal screw-centrifugal solids-handling
pump for this difficult application as it could handle the jockey
pump duty if run on a regular basis.
Weir also advised the customer that the pump station should be
cleaned before starting up the new pump, and, although this was not
undertaken, the pump performed exceptionally well.
The success of the WEMCO-Hidrostal pump puts Weir in an
excellent position for other multiple-pump pump station
