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.
Two skid-mounted lift station systems retrofitted two existing stations for medium sewage flows at this federal correctional facility. Preassembled above-grade skids with Pioneer self-priming pumps in duplex configurations drop suction piping into the existing sumps to pump effluent to the existing force mains.
This packaged pump station was the second of two pump stations supplied for industrial process water and stormwater at two Valero oil refineries. The design criteria specified varying flows which required a duplex pump configuration with an included “jockey” pump to handle the smaller flows.
