Solids pumping specialist P&M Pumps has secured an order for 12 Vaughan vertical pedestal pumps destined for a major pharmaceutical company at its Biomedical Campus site in Cambridge, UK.

The pumps will be vertical pedestal, high-specification Vaughan STPE3P6 models in all 316 stainless steel and CD4 (Duplex stainless steel) construction, driven by 7.5Kw motors.

The installation is part of a completely new pumping system for the campus, handling both its foul or domestic wastewater and research laboratory waste, which is to include corrosive substances and will be extracted and suitably disposed of later in the process.

The system features storage and feed tanks which are situated underground and made from highly chemical resistant GRP600 grade plastic.

The stainless steel material is required due to the concentration of laboratory waste material that will be entering the pumping system.

The pumps will feature variable speed drives, which enables them to handle the varying volumes of liquid within the waste system.
