Website Exclusive: A single source for wastewater handling technology
Applications for material handling and pumping technology in the wastewater industry tend to be complex, with a number of different people and organisations involved in installation and operation. The need to coordinate among officials from one or several municipalities, contractors and engineers means that designing, installing and operating material handling technology within these contexts is challenging.
Considering this challenge along with the industry trend of buying full material solutions at once rather than simply integrating a standalone pump into an existing plant, it is clear that having a single source for pumps, accessories, design, service and support greatly simplifies material handling in wastewater applications.
Design, installation and service for wastewater pumping applications are unique, with a few major differences that set these applications apart from general industrial pumping and other material handling applications. The fundamental fact that wastewater processing plants are municipal entities adds layers of complexity into the design and installation process: projects are overseen by representatives from a number of different organisations, including municipalities, other government agencies, contractors, engineering companies and technology suppliers. This sizable number of people involved in the planning and installation of each project makes for a great deal of essential coordination.
