Wastewater Lift Odor Control Systems - How it Works
Wastewater lift stations are categorized as pumping stations that move wastewater from lower elevation to higher elevation. At certain points throughout your sewage collection system, utilizing wastewater lift stations plays an integral role in moving sewage to the designated wastewater treatment plant.
Lift stations are a crucial part of the wastewater industry because they make the transportation of sewage to a wastewater treatment center more efficient.
Types Of Wastewater Lift Stations
There are two common types of lift stations for collecting and treating wastewater: a dry well lift station and a wet well lift station.
Dry well lift stations typically have the pump in a different location: underground or in a separate chamber. However, make sure you understand what the maintenance on dry well pump will entail because the physical separation can make certain repairs risky.
Wet well lift stations utilize mounted motors submerged in the wastewater that they will be pumping. This wastewater lift station reduces many of the maintenance safety concerns associated with a dry well lift station.
Types Of Lift Station Odor Control Systems
When dealing with wastewater lift stations, there is a concern for corrosion and sewage odors that need to be addressed. Options for lift station odor control are classified as either passive or chemical.
A passive lift station odor control system is centered around eliminating the odor particles from the air that escape the lift station. A chemical feed lift station odor control system pumps chemicals into the wastewater lift station itself in order to prevent the sewage from turning septic and causing any odors.
In-Pipe Technology has created a passive lift station odor control system called the IPT-AOP-16 Advanced Oxidation Process System. The IPT-AOP-16 connects directly to your current lift station vent, scrubbing odors and preventing corrosion to your existing infrastructure without using chemicals or enormous amounts of electricity. It uses less than 25% of the footprint of biological scrubber devices and 50% of the power requirements.
