Six Piston Pumps installed at L.A. Waste Water Treatment Plant
Schwing Bioset Finalizes Installation of Six Piston Pumps at Hyperion Waste Water Treatment Plant(WWTP) in Los Angeles, California Without Interrupting Existing Operations.
Somerset, WI, August 10th, 2009 --- Schwing Bioset (USA), Inc. announces they are in the final stages of installing six KSP 50(HD)XL Cake Pumps with SD500 Screw Feeders at the Hyperion Waste Water Treatment Plan In Los Angeles, CA.
In August of 2007 Schwing Bioset was given a Notice to Proceed to construct the six KSP 50V(HD)XL Cake Pumps with SD500 Screw Feeders to replace competitive equipment that was in place. Installation of the replacement equipment had to be completed without interrupting plant operations, which required a phased installation and equipment-commissioning schedule. As of August 2009 all of the equipment was on site and being installed and commissioned.
In 1996 the City of Los Angeles competitively bid six large piston pumps each for conveying 100 gpm of biosolids at the Hyperion WWTP. The biosolids are dewatered to an average of 32% dry solids content with required operating pressures up to 1,200 psi. Whereas, Schwing Bioset, Inc. was not the low bidder, we were not awarded the contract.
The city experienced perpetual issues with the reliability of the pumps supplied by the low bidder affecting their ability to operate on their desired schedule. After several unsuccessful years of trying to work out the issues with the low cost bidders equipment, the plant made the decision to abandon that equipment and replace it with equipment manufactured by Schwing Bioset.
Dave Taylor, Senior Wastewater Treatment Operator, adds, “The confidence in the Schwing product has been illustrated by the field work performed by these Schwing team mates here at Hyperion."
