Rather than settling for a system that you think will do the job – why not go for a solution that’s perfectly suited to your needs?

We’ve worked on projects in a wide range of industries, including food manufacture, construction and facilities management, and we recognise that no two projects are the same. Whilst there are many occasions where what’s required is a new off-the-shelf pump system, which we can happily specify and supply, sometimes a different approach is needed.

It could be that you’d benefit from a bespoke pump station being designed to ensure it’s the right solution for your site. Keep reading to find out if your pump system could benefit from a tailored bespoke service – taking you from design right through to installation.

Packaged pump stations are a popular choice, incorporating the tank, pipework, valves and controls in one package – but in some cases, not all of the components involved are needed. Do you have an existing chamber to use, for example? Or maybe the water table is too high and you need your concrete chamber fitting out?

It may be that the best route is to make alterations and improvements to your current pump system, which would require a bespoke solution.

Back in 2015, our engineers were called out to supply and install large-scale pump equipment at the Bicester Eco Town development. Their foul pump system had been designed with a huge concrete chamber approximately 14 metres deep and 8 metres in diameter – with a purpose of removing waste from hundreds of houses and into the Thames water sewers system. Naturally, for such a large-scale project, a bespoke solution was called for!

We supplied and installed the complete sewage pump system, specifying Grundfos SLV Pumps with 11kW motors. These pumps are powered by Danfoss variable speed drives and the system level is controlled through a Siemens Hydroranger, allowing the sewage inflow to be dosed accordingly to manage the septicity levels.
