The DPS Technical team approached Irish Water and asked if we could provide an assessment and solution for main pump applications in Co. Clare. The main inlet pumps to the treatment plant had been problematic over the previous number of years. Whilst the existing pumps had been very efficient when installed due to the nature of the impeller choice, over the years the efficiency decreased steadily and the number of blockages increased.
DPS Technical Sales assessed the site and decided that the solution was simple; 2 No. KSB Sewabloc D 150-251G V 160M 04 Pumps fitted with KSB’s D Spiral Vane (Screw) Impeller.
The main benefit of the KSB pumps proposed by DPS is that the impeller is both highly efficient and has a superior solids handling capability to other impellers offered by competitors.
The client wanted to be able to transfer 50 l/s per pump without the hassle of constantly unblocking the units and do so efficiently. DPS provided that solution.
