When you're thinking about upgrading your pump station you can always turn to Xylem. Whatever challenges you face, we'll help you come up with solutions. It doesn't matter if your installation is wet or dry, or if you currently have Flygt or competitor pumps – we are at your service.
Typical pump station upgrades we can help you with include:
- Providing new pumps, valves and control systems in dry-pit stations for increased reliability and capacity.
- Upgrading any brand of submersible pump in your wet pit station to a Flygt pump. If needed we have adaptors to fit your station's discharge connection. A full rehabilitation can include all electro-mechanical equipment, including your valves and control system.
- Improving the wet-pit geometry of existing circular pump stations by using the TOP bottom insert. The design of the TOP bottom will minimize sediment accumulations and odor problems as well as lowering your maintenance costs thanks to its self-cleaning design.
- Redesigning large pump sumps to optimize the inlet conditions to the pumps. By using computational fluid dynamics (CFD), we can verify the design and propose adaptions to improve the operation.
Keep in mind that Flygt submersible pumps are always flood proof, regardless of whether they are installed wet or dry. The integrated design eliminates leakage and the risk of unpleasant and hazardous odors. For dry installations, this means a reliable and safe solution that combines the best of two worlds: dry-mounted pumps that can work under water. This is an important safety aspect if the station gets flooded. We carefully consider all scenarios when dimensioning so that you receive pumps with optimal flood-proof performance.
When you upgrade to N-technology pumps, with their self-cleaning design and non-clog performance, you'll benefit from sustained high efficiency and no more emergency callouts, thereby cutting the total cost of ownership. Flygt N-pumps can be adapted to handle any type of media, and thanks to their modular design you can exchange insert rings, impellers and material or parts. In fact, they're so flexible that you can easily turn a standard N-pump into a chopper version without having to change the existing piping.
