Storm water pump station for airlines and airports
At airports around the world, storm water gets mixed with jet fuel during storms and must be properly pumped and treated before returning into the waterways. Most airports have stormwater pumping stations to prevent flood damage, protect the water supply and capture runoff before returning to canals, levee’s or the general water system.
Pump Systems for Airports
Wastecorp recently supplied our Mud Sucker double diaphragm pumps for an airport pump station upgrade in Pennsylvannia, USA. With santoprene diaphragms (designed to pump petrochemical residuals such as jet fuel), these pumps are well equipped to manage the high volume of water and debris that are frequent in the area. The 3FA-DD shown here is capable of transferring up to 160 GPM, with standard Siemens gear boxes and motors. Airlines, passengers and the general public can get on with their day a little easier after a storm with the Mud Sucker double diaphragm series.
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 photo you see left was sent by a multinational mining company who contacted Wastecorp to design a new fleet system to collect used machine oil and wastewater from various mining sites. 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.
Wastecorp is pleased to announce our water trailer pump products based on our award winning honey wagon pump out platform. Water trailers, (also referred to as “Water Buffalo”) provide fresh water distribution using a higher pressure trash pump or diaphragm pump. These water distribution systems are used to control dust on construction sites, cement cutting water needs, landscaping, paving companies, special venue water services and military water distribution needs.
Water Trailer Tank Sizes
Wastecorp water trailers are available in sizes ranging from 150-5000 gallons directly from Wastecorp or qualified dealers in the USA or Canada. The best part is, your water trailer is manufactured by Wastecorp Pumps with hosing, check plate galvanized deck material and frame, so you’re getting a professional system by a professional ISO 9001 certified water trailer manufacturer.

Topic Manure Pumps
One of the questions we most frequently here from farmers and ranchers is how to pump cow, sheep, hog or horse manure from one area of their farm to another using the right pumping equipment. Most of the time, manure based slurries contain solids content ranging from 5% -15% solids. If your application is on the lower end of this range, Mud Sucker FA Series are commonly used on farms to transfer slurry based or wet liquids to dry manure piles that absorb moisture. These two inch or three inch pumps can pump from 25-80 US GPM and can discharge from 300-500 feet on level land; we can help you determine the suction and discharge loss when pumping on inclines
Can more buses convert to biofuels?
Oil prices are on the rise again leading businesses and consumers to search for economical and environmentally friendly alternatives to fueling vehicles, homes and businesses. More and more of our customers are looking for pump package solutions to feed waste vegetable oil from grease traps and holding tanks to power vehicles and homes. Pumps help to filter waste vegetable oil such as restaurant waste trap grease so that these fluids can be used as fuel.
One of our customers is a school bus operator in Lee County, Florida and is experimenting with fueling a portion of their school bus fleet with waste vegetable oil. The challenge is how to create a pumping system with limited space and budget constraints. Our pump design engineers are in the final stages of creating a rear bumper mounted system using our Mud-Sucker FA Series pumps to assist in pumping purified waste vegetable oil to a holding tank located beneath the bus. Using an in-line piping design, we have reduced the amount of space needed while preserving the pumping power of the Mud Sucker brand pumps. This test project is one more step forward for Lee County’s environmental initiatives and a testimony to the Mud-Sucker’s versatility. Continue reading
