Handle Concentrated Laboratory Waste With High-spec Chopper Pumps

Solids pumping specialists P&M Pumps have recently secured another significant order for 12 VAUGHAN Vertical Pedestal pumps destined for one of the largest pharmaceutical companies, at their Biomedical Campus site in Cambridge.

These twelve pumps will be vertical pedestal, high-specification Vaughan STPE3P6 models in all 316 stainless steel and CD4 (Duplex Stainless Steel) construction, driven by 7.5Kw motors. This is another example of the effective pumping solutions that P&M Pumps are providing for a wide range of ‘challenging’ process applications in the UK.

The installation is part of a completely new pumping system for the campus handling both its foul or domestic waste water and research laboratory waste which is to include corrosive substances and will be extracted then suitably disposed of later in the process. The system features storage and feed tanks which are situated underground and made from HCR (Highly Chemical Resistant) GRP600 grade plastic. The stainless steel material is required due to the concentration of laboratory waste material that will be entering the pumping system. The pumps will be variable speed drive (VSD) which will enable them to handle the varying volumes of liquid within the waste system.

Through their experiences at numerous UK waste water treatment and manufacturing sites, P&M Pumps continue to demonstrate that Vaughan Chopper Pumps are an extremely flexible and effective option on the most challenging waste pumping applications.
