Airport Stormwater Gets Pumped By Mud Sucker Pumps

Storm water pump station for airlines and airports

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, leveeā€™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.
