Wastewater transports suspended waste material from domestic or industrial sources.
HI Pump FAQs
The following standards and associated tests apply to submersible pumps
There are two main types of submersible rotodynamic pumps.
Hydraulic Institute provides the basics on the most common pumps.
The simplest way to detect and gauge a problem is using an overall vibration measurement.
For construction sites, portable dewatering pumps driven by engines are typically well-suited.
One common type of pump is a centrifugal slurry pump.
A primary concern in selecting materials for seawater applications is resistance to corrosion.
More power could be going into the motor than it is continuously designed for.
When galvanic corrosion is a concern, the chemical and physical properties of the material selected must be considered.
Some equipment may run at higher speeds and require a better balance grade to meet vibration standards.
VFDs are used to control the speed of both induction and synchronous motors.
Face treatments increase the opening force by hydrostatic or hydrodynamic methods.
The list of recommended spare parts will depend on the pumping design and other factors.
