Wastewater Treatment Guide

Application Guide: Industrial Wastewater Treatment

Wastewater treatment relies on process pumps for many stages of the treatment procedure. TS Pumps can provide you with a wide range of pumps suitable for various stages in a Wastewater treatment plant to help your operations run smoothly with minimal downtime.


What is Wastewater?

Wastewater is also commonly referred to as sewage treatment. It is contaminated water that has been used in industrial processes, sometimes containing solids. Hundreds and thousands of gallons of wastewater are treated every year to recycle it so that it can be used again in the environment to keep ourselves and wildlife safe from contaminants.


What does a Wastewater pump do?

A Wastewater Pump, sometimes referred to as a Dirty Water Pump, is used for pumping and transferring wastewater, as well as emptying sumps or dosing chemicals in order to treat dirty water.

Safety features for Wastewater Treatment

We know it’s essential to protect your pump from the chemicals used in water treatment, as well as protecting the surrounding environment and your employees from wastewater leakages. It is also really important to protect your business from environmental fines. Our range of pumps come with their own selection of benefits and accessories. Below is a list of potential safety features associated with Water Treatment Plants and pumping wastewater.

Another suitable option for wastewater applications in the event of finding a leak is a Peristaltic Pump, as it will ensure the environment outside of your pump is protected to prevent your business from incurring fines. This is because only the hose comes into contact with the product being pumped. This pump design does not incorporate seals which means that leakages are kept inside the pump casing.
