Frequently in new construction applications, the site of the pump station includes design challenges as construction is pushed into more difficult locations.
There are several types of cooling systems commonly used in pumps. These are direct contact, integrated cooling, internal cooling, and external cooling.
Romtec Utilities designs pump stations that include all structural, mechanical, electrical, and communications systems in a single package. Each pump station design is engineered to meet the specific site conditions and requirements of the unique project.
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.
Wet Wells are the primary structural component of most pump stations, and Romtec Utilities designs, manufactures, and supplies wet wells for many different pumping applications. Wells and sumps can be fabricated out of many different types of materials, and some of the most common are concrete, fiberglass, and polymer.
One feature included on many different pumping systems is the auxiliary vault structure. Vault assemblies comprise components such as valves, meters, air release valves, pressure relief valves, pumping ports, pigging ports, and other components.
Romtec Utilities designs, manufactures, and supplies pump stations for all types of water in many industries, both private and public. One source of potential issues is very prevalent in pump stations. That is sealing penetrations in the pump station wet well.
Romtec Utilities designs and supplies pumping systems for many different applications, and it is common to include features like weir walls and baffle walls. These features are the most common in stormwater pumping, but other water types can benefit from these features if there are suspended solids or if turbidity will have a negative impact on the system components.
As urban development increases, impervious surfaces like concrete and asphalt cover more and more area. These surfaces prevent water from percolating into the ground and disrupt the natural water cycle.
Romtec Utilities designs, manufactures, and supplies complete lift station packages that include all structural, mechanical, electrical, and communications for any application. Many wastewater lift station project are specifically for handling sanitary sewer, an essential aspect of water infrastructure.
