Pump Stations Simplified


The ABC's of Pump Stations

Pump stations are responsible for moving liquids from one place to another via a system of steel, copper, or plastic piping systems. They're used in a number of setups, from oil refineries to municipal water systems and power stations. Given the industry, subtle differences can lead to cost savings and max efficiency. Take, for instance, three of the most common uses:

A. Water Systems

Pump stations can be used to manage municipal water systems. These types of systems deal with constant upgrade demands, particularly in terms of environmental protection. New regulations often force redesigns or call for special measures to be put in place to protect water quality, shore erosion, and protect native wildlife.

B. Sewage Systems

System upgrades can allow a municipality to significantly lower costs without sacrificing on quality of service. This is especially important because of the complications of handling both solid and liquid material, including managing the risk for clogs.

C. Chemicals, Gas, and Oil

Automation is more helpful – and cost effective – in certain industries than in others. Companies dealing with harmful materials, natural gas or oil, need ways of identifying problems as soon as they happen. The latest developments into computerized pump station support provide safety in a wide range of otherwise risky situations.

Each industry places its own requirements on equipment. Companies should assess the systems they have in place to ensure they're making the best investments in terms of both equipment and usage.
