Pumping station

Pumping station

In most cases, the pumping station is located inside a building or in a container. Usually, the pump station is equipped with an eccentric screw pump or a rotary pump which can suck out of or press into every container through pipelines. These are connected suction-sided resp. pressure-sided.
Because pressure is easier to execute than suction, a submersible motor pump is installed inside the receiving tank which conveys directly through the neck of the pump in the station into the container, especially when long distances or great differences in altitude have to be overcome.

In Southern Germany, thick matter slurry pumps in a pump box are more common. The intakes from the receiving tank into the pump box are led through large pipes (about 300 mm diameter) with gate valves. The pump is located inside a closed box which is safe against overflowing. This box is the lowest point of the entire plant from where pressure pipes lead to every tank and to the drum filling station.

Our recommendations for pumps

Positive displacer pumps are particularly suitable because the wear costs are low and the pressure builds up in the rear part of the pump where no bearings or shaft seals are located.
