What Are the Three Types of Pump Wells?

Many industries discharge a big volume of wastewater every day, wastewater treatment systems have an important role to play in this process. It’s important we all contribute to the most valuable resource we have, which is water, and at the same time reduce your operation costs significantly.

In Industries such as food processing, chemical, pharmaceutical, manufacturing and many others, wastewater treatment plants are a must, so you can meet government rules and regulations. These industries have different methods of treating wastewater, depending on wastewater quantity, contaminants present in it, the required level of purity and other critical factors.

Although these systems differ in methods, they have one thing in common and that is, they all need pump wells for their operations. Pump wells are also known as pump stations, which are positioned under the wastewater to move it to a higher level. These pump wells are mostly used, when water cannot solely rely on gravity, so it can be delivered, where it needs to or when there’s a need for a certain amount of flow rate.

Pump wells help to collect the wastewater from different sources, whether in the homes or in various industries, then transfer this to the treatment plant by pumping the water, especially if gravity does not work. After purification of wastewater, pumps also assist in moving it to bodies of water or to a storage tank or where it is required.

Depending on the wastewater treatment system used, as well as the force required, there are several types of pump wells for wastewater treatment that can be used.

Pump Wells

1. Centrifugal Pumps

These pumps use centrifugal force to create a certain speed to move the liquid waste to the wastewater treatment system. With small intake and large outlets, these pumps are simple and easy to operate. The moving parts are very durable and they require the least maintenance.

2. Positive Displacement Pumps

Positive displacement pumps use rollers, gears, impellers, etc. to move fluid through the treatment plant. These pumps are durable and are able to pump even wastewater, with suspended solids.

3. Submersible Water Pumps

As the name implies, these types of pumps are submerged entirely in the liquid waste and are mostly used to pump sewage or slurry. There are level sensors that help in its operation.
