Double Disc Pump Comparison: The State of the Double Disc Pump Business

Compare Penn Valley and Sludge Pro Double Disc Pumps

Double Disc Pump

Wastecorp was recently at WEFTEC exhibiting our newest double disc pumps for the municipal wastewater treatment market and industrial fluid handling space. Wastecorp’s Sludge Pro double disc pump marketing program continues to focus on building awareness with WWTP operators and consulting engineers that competition exists in the double disc pump space and the market offers a more robust alternative than traditionally known.

We have noticed that when a double disc pump for a WWTP upgrade or expansion goes to the planning stage and/or bid stage, we get calls from consulting engineers saying that the competition or their pump distributor make misleading or incomplete statements about double disc pump competition. What it boils down to is trying to eliminate competition. In America, we call this an attempt to create a monopoly. History has shown that monopolies are seldom good for competition in the pump business or any other business for that matter. History has also shown that monopolies in the United States aren’t looked at favorably by either regulators or the public. Continue reading

Diaphragm Pumps Now Available With Control Panels

Diaphragm Pump with Control Panel

Diaphragm Pump with Control Panel

One of the trending customer requests this past year is custom diaphragm pump stations equipped with control panels and mobility options. To give you an example (and some ideas for your own pump application), one of our customers who happens to be one of the largest snack food producers globally, contacted Wastecorp’s engineering department asking for design proposals for a 3″ diaphragm pump out system complete with a mobility kit and the ability to directly control the pump operation. The diaphragm pump unit needed to be manufactured to maneuver easily on the factory floor aisles with custom dimensions. The pumps  travel throughout the facility transferring chocolate based waste slurry and vegetable oil residues.

Look to the left and this is what our pump engineers came up with. This is the 3FA-EC diaphragm pump control panel model with e-stop, push bottom start and a specialized float system which detects when the pump should begin operating and automatically turn off.   The customer ended up ordering 10 units for other facilities. The best part of this case study is that Wastecorp and our customer are in constant contact reviewing the benefits of the pump system and making design changes for future facility needs. We work one-on-one for custom results and constant improvement.
