Raw Water Intake

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
  • Wash 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
  • Continuous operations
  • Energy efficiency
