LPP Pumps Performing Well in Municipal Wastewater Treatment Facility
Nashua New Hampshire is one of many United States cities and municipalities selecting Flowrox technology over inferior pumping technologies.
Metering and dosing pumps great in wastewater treatment
Several years ago, a facility in Nashua New Hampshire purchased six metering and dosing pumps for its wastewater treatment. Two Flowrox LPP-D25 peristaltic dosing hose pumps for control of sodium hypochlorite for disinfection and four peristaltic metering tube pumps for pumping of sodium bisulfite and sodium hypochlorite. Metering pumps are highly sophisticated and fully equipped metering tube pumps.
LPP-D dosing pumps were ordered with a special Halar coating. It protects against the aggressive sodium hypochlorite in the unlikely occurrence of a hose failure. They were also equipped with hose leak detection to shut the pump down in the event of hose failure and with an integral variable speed motor with 4 – 20 mA input for control.
Flowrox pumps offer stable flow and metering capabilities
“Flowrox pumps offer stable flow and metering capabilities under varying operating conditions, and their energy requirement is constant,” says the customer. “They can also handle severe variation in suction line condition in regard to suction lift and viscosity. The pumps are also very user friendly,” he continues.
Engineered peristaltic pumps combine smart intelligence with superior turndown. Another remarkable advantage is that peristaltic pumps will not experience vacuum degassing in summer months like other designs.
Flowrox was selected for equipment supplier based on the superior tube pump and control technology of the metering pumps. The engineering consultant, the city of Nashua New Hampshire elected officials and contractor all formed a common consensus to order and approve the use of Flowrox pumps. Flowrox won on the technical merits, commercial merits and long-term operational advantages.
These pumps are operating flawlessly without any downtime since March 2008.”
