Solids pumping and mixing specialists P&M PUMPS identified the potential for a combined mixing, aeration and cleaning system that will also condition and effectively deal with problem solids and rags without causing the blockages that occur with traditional methods. As a result the STORMTHRUST™ system has been developed which can meet the requirements through bespoke tank designs (any size and shape of tank). The system incorporates the unique VAUGHAN Chopper pump which not only conditions the heavy solids but also creates sufficient flows through multiple high velocity venturi nozzles located on the floor of the tank. The result is comprehensive solids suspension and as liquid levels fall the system will direct flow towards the drain end of the tank.
The development and application of STORMTHRUST™ is both a natural progression and a great ally to P&M Pumps’ highly rated ROTAMIX and STM tank mixing systems. Following extensive trials P&M Pumps are delighted to report that 21 STORMTHRUST™ systems are currently being installed at two large Thames Water sites.
These established and successful systems, combined with their ever increasing knowledge and experience, makes P&M Pumps confident in their ability to supply an effective solution to any tank conditioning process or application.
