How to select Best and effective Commercial sewage pump systems?
A sewage pump system grinds the matter in wastewater, allowing it to flow from a low point to sewer lines. In a commercial setting, such as a restaurant, the pump would function similarly to a garbage disposal, grinding up foods and items that were held down the drain. The smaller pieces travel through pipes with a lower risk of clogging and damaging lines.
A pump system handles things that shouldn't be flushed down the toilet. If you have clients who flush baby wipes despite the fact that they do not dissolve, a pump can help prevent clogs. Patrons may be unaware that flushing a tampon applicator is bad for sewer lines. Food scraps can be disposed of safely in the sink by your kitchen staff.Meanwhile, the pump ensures that wastewater is transported up-slopes and away from low points.
Consider that your restaurant is at the bottom of a hill, but the wastewater district's pump station is at the top. If your building has basement-level kitchens, laundry rooms, or bathrooms, a pump will aid in the separation of solid waste from wastewater. The pump then pushes it up and into the sewer lines.
Pumps directs the flow of wastewater so that it does not backflow into your sinks, toilets, and drains at the base of your business, costing you hundreds or thousands of money to sanitize and clean surfaces.
Suggestions for Choosing Sewage Pumps
The best commercial sewage grinder pumps are determined by your requirements. A sewage pump required in a large building with many office spaces will be very different from one required in a food processing company. Other businesses that benefit from commercial sewage pumps include restaurants, bars, and hotels.
These are the things you should think about when you begin researching your options:
1: The Horsepower of the Motor
A commercial sewage pump is not the same as a sewage pump you would use at home. It handles more wastewater, so the pump must be capable of handling the increased capacity.
Many residential pumps have an RPM of around 3,000 and range in power from 0.5 to 1 HP. A commercial pump has a more powerful motor, which is usually 2 HP or higher, and the RPMs are usually around 3,500.
This is critical in a building with multiple bathrooms or kitchens. A pump with less power is more likely to overheat and require repairs or replacement. You must ensure that the pump you install is capable of meeting your wastewater demands. Over time, the right size pump reduces your maintenance and repair costs.
2: RPM stands for Revolutions per Minute (RPM)
Higher RPMs aid in the blending of solid materials into a slurry. The faster it can do this, the better it will be at preventing backups or clogs. If you own a brewery with its own small wastewater treatment plant, you'll need a pump capable of handling any grains or hops that pass through filtration.
3: Maximum Flow Rate
Check the maximum flow rate of the pump. If your company generates more than 100 gallons of wastewater per minute, you'll need a pump that can handle that volume. This is indicated by the maximum flow rate, which is given in gallons per hour.
If it can handle 6,340 gallons per hour, it can handle more than 100 gallons per minute on average.
4: Design of the Pump
A control panel may be required for a commercial sewage pump. Otherwise, a float is used to turn the pump on and off as needed.
Examine the discharge design of the pump. Most have a vertical pipe that protrudes from the top. A vertical design is frequently ideal. Make sure you have this type of discharge rather than a horizontal discharge that necessitates a 90-degree pipe section for the wastewater to travel upward.
You should also consider the materials used to construct the pump. Many are made of cast iron and have stainless steel cutters to grind the materials into small pieces. On the impeller, you want a clog-free design. Look for oil-filled, sealed motors that don't require much upkeep.
5: Height of the Head
Take a look at the height of the head. For sewer lines, head height is the vertical distance from the lowest level of wastewater at the pump to the highest point where it exits the building. Sewer lines typically run from the buildings to the sewers on the lowest level of the structure. In some buildings, this means sending water from the top floor to the basement and then out to the sewers.
