Dow Chemical Company Louisiana Operations – Prefabricated Pump Station
This package pump station was designed to respect the confidentiality of this industrial facility. The entire system was delivered with much of the hardware preinstalled in the fiberglass wet well to facilitate simple, “drop-in” installation. To meet the high flows of industrial stormwater, submersible centrifugal pumps were supplied that could handle the possibility of suspended hydrocarbons. A PLC control panel utilizes an ultrasonic transducer and float controls for liquid level-sensing. The entire package was self-installed by the customer.

Why They Chose Romtec Utilities
After working with Romtec Utilities on a previous project, Dow Chemical Company contacted Romtec Utilities to design and supply this package stormwater lift station in a similar method. Dow Chemical chose on the previous project to use its own in-house staff for engineering review and for installation. Romtec Utilities received the pumping requirements from Dow Chemical and provided complete designs and documentation for approval. The lift station was designed to be site-specific in regards to meeting requirements and in being manufactured and supplied for simple on-site installed by Dow Chemical employees. The final packaged pump station was so well defined that Dow Chemical was able to complete the entire installation and only needed Romtec Utilities for start-up and training.
