AUTOMATIC SUMP DESLUDGING
If grease and solids are permitted to build up in pump sumps, they can cause more than just an unpleasant smell. The pump’s level regulators can become fouled, reducing operational efficiency and pump life. Flooding may occur. Regular desludging is therefore essential and that means downtime and labour costs where mechanical desludging is used.
ITT Flygt’s Flush Valve provides a simple, effective and fully automatic way of continuously keeping pump sumps free of sludge by flushing the sump at the beginning of every pumping cycle. Sedimentation in the sump is greatly reduced, and unpleasant odours in and around the pumping station are virtually eliminated.
