Maintenance-In-Place (MIP) Pumps made by Börger are successfully removing grit from Wessex Water's Bristol sewage treatment works at Avonmouth.
Börger's PL300 Pump collected a massive four tonnes of grit on its very first traverse of Avonmouth's Channel Four. From here, with a suction lift of 5m, black water and particles are then deposited at a flow rate of 30 m3/hr into a grit gulley to flow to grit screens.
A spokesperson for Wessex Water, commented: "It has been clear since the moment that they went into action that Börger's pumps do remove grit properly. We are very pleased with the results because the pumps simply get on with the task without constant maintenance or blockage problems. Grit removal was a troublesome application, but not anymore".
Installed by ALMAX Technical Services, the Börger Pump is mounted on a moving bogey and fitted with Optimum NBR Rotors & a 4.0kw EFF Class 1 Drive, and runs at 200 rpm'.
Whilst the pump can still handle very abrasive particles in large quantities, this slow running speed keeps wear and tear to an absolute minimum.
