FITT Resources is a leader in the dewatering space Australia wide, specialising in devising and supplying cost effective, high quality pump solutions to the construction, rental and wastewater industries.
Recently, our Dewatering Division has been working with South East Water on the supply, delivery and installation of a Grindex Senior sludge pump for use in dewatering the bioreactors at one of its wastewater treatment plants.
This high quality, durable pump that was chosen for its ease of operation, low maintenance, and capacity to handle a variety of conditions.
South East Water had previously been using a combination of other pumps, including a diesel pump, in this application. However, the Grindex Senior sludge pump provided a plug & play solution that was easy and straightforward to set up, and which made the clean up process simpler as well.
On site, South East Water has reported that the pump has neither blocked nor run dry, and consistently self-primes when the water is low. It has simplified the dewatering process considerably, enabling tanks to be completely emptied.
An additional benefit is that once running, there has been no need for the pump to be constantly monitored — instead, South East Water has essentially been able to set and forget, while the pump consistently delivers robust and reliable performance, and the capacity to efficiently handle even the heaviest of sludge.
