Information, application tips and technical data for all of our pump types.
Pumping water into industrial and municipal plants
Many industries and municipal facilities require a large inflow of water for their processes. Water intake stations handling inflows to the plants must keep the processes working. Since water is required for the operation, reliability and high pump efficiency are essential. Intake stations are used in applications such as these:
Power plants that require inflow of water for cooling and condensation
Water intakes to water treatment plants for potable water production
Cooling water for industrial processes
General process water
The water used in the process can be fresh water or seawater depending on the source and process needs. Seawater places different requirements on the pumps due to the salt content, so solutions especially designed for seawater duty are a must.
Understanding your challenges
High flows are often needed
Reliability and redundancy are important since pump failure may jeopardize operations
