Lift Stations/ Pump Stations & Hydrogen Sulphide Issues

Lift/ Pump Station Management / Maintenance

Any site that has Lift/pumping stations know the importance of their equipment working efficiently.

If the station was to fail it would cause all sorts of issues for the sites, creating a back up, damaging property and disruption to customers.

Sewage is a very corrosive environment in which mechanical equipment operates. A pump station needs regular, planned maintenance.

Cleaning and FOG Maintenance

Sewage pumping stations are prone to build-up a number of layers of non biological matter as well as FOG (Fats, Oils and Grease)

Overtime this build-up will prevent float-switches from operating efficiently and will allow materials like rags or paper to enter the pumps themselves. This will lead to pump station failure. Therefore regular cleaning is a must

Grease Problems in Pumping Stations

FOG causes huge issues in the pump stations and can cause failure. FOG builds up around pumps, floats and within the pump station pipework / manifold. FOG deposits cause pump-wear and system failure.

EB being FOG experts can solve the FOG issues in the pumping stations using our BIO Lift system that injects live bacteria that consumes FOG and at the same time introduces diffused oxygen into the chamber and keeps the pumping station operating efficiently.

Hydrogen Sulphide Issues

H2S is a huge issue in the sewer system and the gas is dangerous. The H2S leads to sulphuric acid in the sewers that can corrode the infrastructure.

Environmental Biotech has a programme that can help reduce the H2S build up, using its bespoke biological program.

This can be put into play in pump stations as well as sewers systems and the results are astonishing.

Talk to us about our Package of Bio Lifts and H2S solutions to suit your infrastructure. It will bring you efficient operating Lift stations, with less odor and reduced FOG – improving operations and reducing breakdowns. WIN WIN. H2S will also be addressed to suit.
