Sewage Macerator and Solids Handling Pumps
The key characteristic of sewage macerator pumps, or grinder pumps, are their ability to grind up and destroy solid material, reducing the risk of blockages and making the waste easier to pump out.
Golden rules for keeping your pump healthy :
- Cleanliness (no fats or large amount of food waste to enter the pump)
- No Sanitary products, as they clog up these pumps which leads to terminal failure.
- Keep these sewage pumps serviced annually to keep them in good working order.
- If they are external fitted make sure they have a heating element and thermostat in the chamber to stop them from freezing in cold weather.
Solids handling pumps are ideal for dirty water where there may be debris or solids sucked through the pump, which may clog other water pumps. These pumps are designed to be non-clog pumps and would be ideal for use in dirty water, sumps, cellars, light sewage, effluent and hire fleets. Solids pumps allow the free passage of solids up to around 50 mm through the pump without causing damage or a blockage
Submersible pumps, or sump pumps are great for pumping groundwater, seepage or rainfall, and are recommended for flood defence schemes. Submersible pumps can be effectively used in construction or site drainage enabling contractors to continue working in wet weather. The main advantage to submersible pumps are that they generally do not require priming as they are already submersed in the water. The submersible pumps also electric, so they can be used internally or externally.
Submersible pumps each have different specialised uses and applications include:
- Well or borehole pumping
- Site drainage
- Water transfer
- Flood protection
- Waste water removal
- Water features for ponds
