Turning waste into value: Helping our customer boost efficiency

We recently began an exciting new partnership with a leading UK water company on a waste management project. When they built five new anaerobic digester tanks to process food waste at one of their facilities, they called on us to help optimise the tank drainage system.

After an on-site survey, our team recommended installing three of our GP150 super silent pumps to rapidly empty the tanks on demand. The pumps’ flooded suction discharge design prevents clogging while providing reliable, quiet operation. With two duty pumps and one standby unit connected to the tanks’ 6” outflow flanges, we implemented a robust pumping solution to keep operations flowing smoothly.
