Serving the industrial and municipal pump aftermarket since 2004, Goforth Williamson, Inc. provides comprehensive pump repair and field services for most pump makes and models. The Georgia-based equipment and service provider has a long-standing relationship with a cereal processing plant in the southern United States. Having consistently provided the cereal processing plant with quality pump repair and on-site support, it was no surprise when the plant solicited help from GWI to find a solution to a frequent repair problem. As most end users know, excessive pump repairs can take a big bite out of the maintenance budget.The Challenge
The wastewater lift station at the cereal processing plant had been utilizing two grinder pumps within a duplex system. Designed for constant duty, one pump would operate while the other acted as a back-up, and the pumps would switch operation as needed.
