We offer channel impeller pumps for normal effluents, vortex pumps for more challenging applications where household wipes and fibrous materials are encountered, grinder pumps for smaller bore rising mains with high heads, though to our chopper range for the really challenging conditions with higher volumes where the media contains a high degree of fibrous materials.
Sizes of discharge range from 50mm to 500mm with motor sizes starting at 0.75kW to 200kw.
TT Pumps has been involved with providing pumping systems for over 60 years where sewage and effluent pumping have become a specialist field and to choose the pumps for the optimum effectiveness, we would always recommend that your pump(s) are expertly selected.
Environmental responsibility gives even more importance to making sure that your effluent pumping system meets the current requirements and that the risk of pollution is fully minimised.
Long term a good selection will ensure that you get a good investment and reliability while ensuring long life and economy.
Please contact our Expert Engineers for the best pump selection.
How Does A Sewage Pump Work?
A sewage pump is used to move raw sewage starting with one area then onto the next - for instance from a sewage pumping station into the mains sewer.
The most popular sewage pumps are free passage pumps, as they allow for solids to pass through the pump minimising the risk of blockages (including tampons, sanitary pads and toilet paper) and then using centrifugal forces to move sewage to the required area.
Types Of Sewage Pump?
Most sewage pumps are electric submersible pumps, but at the same time it's feasible to source surface mounted models. Some of the most common types of sewage pumps include:
Vortex Impeller Pumps – Designed to provide maximum solids handling facility through the pump with minimal contact between sewage and impeller. Ideal for sewage pumping stations.
Channel Impeller Pumps – A more efficient impeller design for handling sewage over a vortex impeller design eg, improved flow rates and delivery pressure for the same motor KW rating. The risk of potential pump failure however is increased as the pumped medium passes through the impeller.
Grinder Pumps – Designed to break down sewage so that it can be transferred over long distances and high heads with minimal motor power. For applications where the discharge flow rate required is low.
Chopper Pumps – The ideal answer for testing conditions where there are high volumes containing a high density of fibrous materials.
Picking The Right Sewage Pump
The right sewage pump will depend on your individual environment and application. Over the long term, a good selection will ensure reliability and the maximum return on your investment.
