Attractive Lift Station with Shelter

The Truth About Flushable Wipes, FOG, Other Materials in Wastewater

One increasingly frequent challenge with wastewater lift stations is how they handle “flushable” wipes, FOG (Fats, Oils, and Greases), and other materials that get flushed into the sewer system.

Hazardous Spaces and the Class/Division System

Romtec Utilities engineers, manufactures, and supplies packaged pump stations for many applications. Nearly all our pumping systems include wet wells and valve vaults that are considered confined spaces. All vault structures are confined spaces, but some pumping applications – like sewer – are also exposed to potentially flammable gases and vapors. These are classified as hazardous spaces and given a Class/Division/Group rating.
