Power Generation and Utilities

In power generation and utilities applications, from conventional coal or natural gas to nuclear and renewable products, submersible pumps serve to move fuel sludge, abrasive slurries, and wastewater. Viscosity challenges and high-temperature fluids require rugged, specialized pumps to handle the job. Improper pump selection can cause costly and labor-intensive shutdowns. Our pumps move contaminated, corroding materials with robust construction for heavy duty energy applications.

Our case studies below demonstrate how our pumps serve energy production applications like yours to tackle a variety of challenges.

Managing Safety While Managing Waste

Federal standards exist to protect groundwater by requiring some landfills to use plastic liners to collect and treat leachate. Leachate, which is the resulting liquid that drains or ‘leaches’ through a landfill after it rains, can vary widely in composition; depending on the age of the landfill and the type of waste the landfill may contain. When a new wastewater treatment facility was being built right next to an existing landfill, the specifying engineers had to consider how leachate entering their pumping processes might affect the safety of the plant personnel and the pumping equipment.
