Wastewater Treatment 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 Waste Water?

Waste Water 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 wildlife and ourselves safe from contaminants.

What does a waste water pump do?

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

Safety Features for Wastewater Treatment

We know it’s important to protect your pump from the chemicals used in water treatment, as well as protecting the surrounding environment and your employees from waste water leakages and protecting your business from environmental fines.

Our range of pumps come with their own range of benefits and accessories; below is a list of potential safety features associated with Water Treatment Plants and pumping wastewater.


The Guardian System, designed in the UK, is ideal for chemical leakages. This accessory monitors the pressure of the liquid being pumped through your Diaphragm Pump.  The Guardian System can control the running of the pump, including completely stopping the pump and sounding an alarm in the case of a chemical leak.Guardian System for Diaphragm Pumps

An important safety feature when working with Waste Water Treatment is to use an ATEX rated pump when pumping liquids containing explosive gases. Many of our pumps can be supplied with ATEX certification, please ask the Sales Team for more details on ATEX rated waste water pumps. Pumps that are ATEX rated particularly for wastewater treatment that involves explosive gases.


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 prevents 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.
