If you’ve ever experienced a backed-up drain, you know the bad impression it gives customers while also leading to lost revenue, increased labor costs, and health and safety issues.

Selecting proper solids handling pumps for your building’s wastewater requires considering the following factors.What Solids Are You Pumping?
The first factor is knowing what items find their way into the drain. Let’s be honest, people in a commercial setting simply don’t care very much about what they flush down the toilet. You shouldn’t be surprised to find towels, rags, used diapers, and all sorts of other heavy solids in your wastewater stream.

Oil and gas drilling is tough on equipment, particularly the drill bit, which needs almost constant attention to keep the rig operating properly. Injecting drilling mud into the wellbore is among the most important techniques crews have to keep the drill bit and the rest of the operation on track. Drilling mud includes varying combinations of bentonite, barite, fresh- or salt-water, oil or other synthetic additives. This depends on the type of formation you’re drilling and the restrictions imposed by environmental regulations.
