The Wastewater Treatment Plant Pumps: Guidelines for Selection, Application, and Operation Guidebook
Dating back to the 19th century, people began purifying used water prior to discharging it back into the environment. Today, access to clean water is a basic necessity and is essential to sustain and provide for the continued development of the world’s population and its economic growth. One of the most urgent concerns today is to have a sufficient supply of clean water to meet and sustain a constantly growing demand.
This guidebook is intended to assist in the understanding of the general layout, components, and operation of a typical wastewater treatment plant. The intention is to provide the guidance necessary to select pump types, pump materials, and auxiliary components so the pumping system performs effectively, efficiently, and reliably in the various plant operations. This single resource contains practical information for those who are new to specifying treatment plant pumping systems and equipment, as well as for those who are experienced, but desire to enhance their knowledge-base for these systems and proper pump selection.
