Pump Out Replacement

When it comes time to update your wastewater pump system especially for mobile applications you should know your options. There are a range of products available with components designed for your specific application.

The previous pump systems had been in service for over 30 years and the customer required an updated pump out system with added durability and pumping power. The customer also had height restrictions for pumping in a variety of mining facilities including shafts and waste ponds.

Planning a marine pump out station is essential to getting the appropriate  pump out equipment for your marina. Consulting other marinas in your area or a marine pump manufacturer ahead of when you actually need the system installed is your best bet. Wastecorp has generally found that marinas seem to be getting larger boat and yacht traffic in the last few years that need to be pumped out.

Compare Double Disc Pumps With Single Disc Pumps

Double Disc Pump or Single Disc Pump? You Decide.

Double Disc Pump or Single Disc Pump? You Decide.

Since we launched the Sludge Pro Disc Pump product line, there have been several questions as to whether or not a single disc or double disc pump is more appropriate for specific wastewater treatment applications.

To be clear, there is not always a need for a double disc pump. A single disc pump will fit the pump specification properly. One of the reasons why consulting engineers and contractors have put the double disc pump specification in place is because up until recently there have been few other alternatives. In many cases, a double disc pump is simply overkill in both pump, footprint, cost and maintenance time down the road.

Single Disc Pump Where a Double Disc Pump is Overkill

Single Disc Pump Where a Double Disc Pump is Overkill

Take the Sludge Pro single disc pump for example. This pump series offers up to 150 GPM pumping capabilities with a single disc, trunnion and pump body.  This reduces the footprint in most municipal WWTP’s by at least 20%. You also reduce repair costs by replacing only one disc, trunnion and connecting rod instead of two. With over 21 years of pump manufacturing experience, Wastecorp designed the Sludge Pro with a heavy duty ball valve configuration because this design has demonstrated improved solids and slurry pumping capabilities over traditional double disc pump manufacturers. The Sludge Pro single disc pump is available in 3”, 4” and 6” connection sizes with discharge head up to 184’ or 80 psi. You can learn more about Sludge Pro single disc pumps at http://www.wastecorp.com/disc-pumps.html or speak to a disc pump engineer at 1-888-829-2783 anywhere in the United States and Canada. You can email info@wastecorp.com to find out where the closest double disc pump or single disc pump engineer is closest to you. There are also educational resources about double disc pumps and single disc pumps at your disposal.
