Corrosive/Caustic Pumping

Pump Corrosive & Caustic Fluids with Resilient Pumping Systems

Robust Structural Pumping Options for Handling Caustic Water Conditions

There are many materials suitable for use with corrosive or caustic water like concrete, fiberglass, and stainless steel. There are also many types of coatings and liners for any structure, including double-wall containment with leak detection. Romtec Utilities engineers caustic water pumping systems with any and all material options.

Russel City Energy Center | Demineralized Process Water Pumping System
1350 GPM | 15′ TDH

Romtec Utilities was contacted to help on the design of an industrial pump station that would handle demineralized process water at the Russel City Energy Center in Hayward, California.

Exelon West Medway Generating Station | Power Plant Pumping Systems
30 – 70 GPM | 10′ – 35′ TDH

The expansion of the Exelon Medway Generating Station required four unique pump stations to support future operations.

Kings Mountain Energy Center
Middletown Energy Center | HRSG Blowdown and Process Pumping
480-850 GPM | 25′-35′ TDH

Construction of a new combined cycle power plant in Middletown, OH required 3 pump stations for the operation of its HRSG system. Middletown Energy Center uses natural gas and HRSG to generate power, this process requires significant amounts of water for operation.

Orlando Utility Commission
Orlando Utility Commission | HRSG Blowdown Pump Station
100, 800 GPM | 85.6′, 135′ TDH

Romtec Utilities was hired to design and supply pump stations to support a combined-cycle power generation process that requires significant amounts of recirculated water to function for the Orlando Utility Commission in Orlando, FL.

BAE Acetic Acid Plant | Corrosive Water Pumping Skid
300 GPM | 30′ TDH

BAE Systems, Inc. needed a new pumping system that could handle medium flows of industrial wastewater that was also skid mounted. This system was designed with self-priming pumps in a triplex configuration to avoid corrosive water conditions.

Marathon Petroleum | Oil Refinery Process Wastewater
75 GPM | 125′ TDH

The Marathon Petroleum Refinery in Robinson, IL needed this new industrial process water pump station to handle its medium flows of highly acidic water combined with standard wastewater. A precast concrete sump included an interior Tnemec coating to withstand the water chemistry from a refinery testing lab.
