Pumping Stations Are Not One-Fits-All, So Let Us Help You Choose The Type That Fits Your Needs
There are dozen of pump types out there and each one is tailored to different applications
Pumping stations and types are very specific to industry. At United Compressor & Pump Services, we have assisted retail customers, property management companies, and municipalities with their pump needs. From Walmart, to Motel 6, to the City of Salem, New Hampshire, we are experts when it comes to all different types of industrial pumps. The variety of pumps we sell and service include:
Over 200 million people depend on wastewater treatment plants to treat their sewage. These plants require high-powered wet well-mounted pump stations to operate. United Compressor & Pump Service carries, installs, and repairs well-mounted pumps used by some of the largest wastewater treatment centers.
Vacuum Priming Pumps
Vacuum priming systems rely on centrifugal pumps to transport large volumes of liquids, so they are frequently used in marine applications, treatment plants, steel milling, agricultural irrigation, and many manufacturing facilities.
Dry pit station pumps
Dry pit pumps are used by many municipalities and utility companies for various applications—such as moving storm water from highways or removing waste water from treatment centers. These pumps are used to empty fluids, and many of these centrifugal systems can transport tens of thousands of gallons of water.
Clogged piping is a common problem that can become very costly if it progresses. Over 600 water mains break every day, which causes 7,000,000,000 gallons of water to be lost. This problem is most common in businesses and households that dispose of too many solid materials.
Cutter pumps are the solution to many of these problems. They can easily break down solid waste, allowing it to be transported without clogging the pipes.
Vortex pumps are used in applications where excessive debris frequently enters the piping system. Coal slurry transport, dry cleaners, breweries, and bakeries all rely on vortex pumps, since foreign objects tend to get caught in their systems regularly. Most are 100% recessed impeller vortex pumps that can transport objects the same width as the pipe diameter with minimal risk of clogging.
Grinder pumps play in important role in wastewater removal. Waste is removed from pipes connected to bathtubs, toilets, and other devices that use water. This waste is then stored in a holding tank. Once the holding tank reaches a certain capacity, the grinding pump breaks the waste down and transports it to the septic tank.
Grinder pumps are particularly important for restaurants, dry cleaners, and other companies that process large amounts of water that often collects debris.
High Head pumps
“Head” refers to the vertical distance a fluid can be discharge from a pump. Therefore, high head pumps can propel fluids at high heights. They are necessary for irrigation, firefighting, and water circulation systems.
Diesel is used in many industrial applications and powers over 7 million vehicles in the United States. It is about 10% lighter than water, so diesel pumps don’t require the same power. However, diesel is also highly combustible, so the injection pump must isolate the fuel from any flammable elements.
Submersible pumps are designed to carry large volumes of a liquid. They are entirely submerged in the liquid, so they are suitable for a variety of applications, such as:
- Transportation of fresh, drinkable water
- Transporting sewage
- Emptying oil wells
Submersible pumps are usually connected to a hermetically sealed motor via couplings.
