Flygt N-pumps eliminate clogging and cut energy bills in Hartland, WI


In the village of Hartland, Wisconsin, submersible pumps at the village’s lift stations were frequently becoming clogged, resulting in emergency service calls to remove debris. The unscheduled calls had become a major expense, as overtime hours and unplanned maintenance costs increased.

The village of Hartland replaced two multi-channel-equipped submersible pumps at its clog-prone Crystal Drive Lift Station with two Flygt brand 5-horsepower pumps. The new pumps feature patented N-technology with self-cleaning impellers and pump housings. Backswept leading edges on the pump impeller shed rags and stringy material with each rotation, and the pump housing has a groove that channels the fibrous material away.
