What Are The Three Types Of Pump Wells?
A pump well, also referred to as a pump station, is an essential element of wastewater removal on an industrial basis. Many companies require pump wells in order to assist with the effective removal of wastewater; pump wells are utilised in all types of industries, including chemical, food processing, pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries.
However, with different types of pump well available for installation, it can be hard to determine which type of pump well is most suitable for your specific needs. Read on to learn more about the three types of pump well that may be utilised in a wastewater treatment plan.
What are the three types of pump wells?
The three types of pump wells are as follows:
- Centrifugal Pumps
- Submersible Water Pumps
- Positive Displacement Pumps
1. Centrifugal Pumps
Centrifugal pump wells utilise what is known as centrifugal force in order to move any waste liquids through to the treatment system. This is done by building up enough speed via the pump in order to efficiently transport the waste from one destination to another. One of the main benefits of centrifugal pumps is that they require little ongoing maintenance; they are also comprised of extremely durable parts that are also easily moveable.
2. Submersible Water Pumps
Submersible water pump wells are submerged entirely within the waste liquids. Most commonly, the purpose of a submersible water pump is to pump slurry or other forms of sewage. One of the advantages of opting for a submersible water pump well system is that they utilise level sensors in order to ensure that the pumping operates as intended; the sensors detect if the level gets too high, which likely indicates a problem with the pump well.
3. Positive Displacement Pumps
Positive displacement pumps are most often used to move waste liquids through a treatment plant. This is achieved via the implementation of a number of equipment pieces, including rollers, impellers, gears and more. Similar to the other pump well types, positive displacement pumps are very durable. Thanks to their sturdiness, this type of pump can even move some types of solids suspended in wastewater.
