Turnkey solids pumping and mixing package supplied for new waste reception facility

Pump Systems completed an interesting project at the Palmerston North City Council’s Totara Road WWTP for a state-of-the-art waste reception facility, which takes a combination of food wastes, raw septage and piggery wastes before being processed and injected into the digesters at the plant. The introduction of fats, oils and greases (FOG) into anaerobic digesters can greatly enhance methane gas production. Vaughan Chopper Pumps were preferred for the site due to their proven ability in handling difficult solids and to eliminate the risk of clogging.
