Designing Wastewater Pumping Systems and Lift Stations
After participating in this course, you will be able to:
- Solve basic pumping system design problems including considerations for installation, operation and maintenance
- Select most suitable equipment for your application and write practical specifications
- Maximize effective operational procedures and optimize use of system controls
- Reduce your maintenance problems and enhance system protection
- Make condition assessment and upgrades to increase capacity
Design criteria for wastewater pumping systems include the capacity to deal with variable flow rates and types, floatable objects, large solids and abrasive materials. The outcome of design should be a suitable pumping system comprising efficient equipment, cost-effective installation, smooth operation and minimum downtime with normal maintenance. The hands-on design problems that you solve in this seminar/workshop under instructor guidance enhance your understanding of design procedures.
You learn to select the most suitable equipment for your application, appreciate the effect of design on installation, operation and maintenance.
