Orange County Waste Acceptance Facility Looks for Pump Solutions

Orange County Sewage Pumps

Orange County Sewage Pumps

Orange county is home to dozens of resorts, hotels and theme parks which generate tens of millions of gallons of wastewater that needs to be treated every year. When an Orlando, Florida renewable energy company earned a multiyear contract to accept waste from local resorts and theme parks, they needed severe duty pumps to transfer thick slurries and solids.

The details of the project called on the requirement of pumps to transfer ground up seafood shells, grease trap waste, utensils, animal renderings, wastewater and more. In this application, the waste is unloaded from a tanker into a waste pit. The waste is then transferred to a conveyor system which then separates most of the foreign objects like utensils, large solids, plastic bags and more. The remaining waste is sent through the Sludge Master plunger pump and then to the digesters of the wastewater treatment plant. With millions of people visiting Orlando resorts and theme parks every year, this amounts to a lot of waste, as tanker trucks deliver new loads of slurry like liquid waste around the clock.

Marine Vacuum Pump

Marine Vacuum Pump

If you’re looking to plan a new marine vacuum pump out system or replace an existing one this is a good place to start. Wastecorp is an ISO 9001 certified manufacturer of marine vacuum pump out systems for marinas. One of our marina customers recently exemplified what’s on the mind of marina operators these days when it comes to planning a marina vacuum pump out:

Hi, we just bought a marina in Maryland and the pump out we have needs replacement. We are planning on expanding the marina with about 50 more boat slips which will bring our total to about 121.
