Battle against blockages

Published:  06 December, 2018

Of the 366,000 sewer blockages occurring in the UK around 80% are caused by the presence of ‘non-flushable’ items and the biggest offender is said to be wet-wipes.

Through its experiences with a number of the UK’s water companies in dealing with blocked sewers, Huntingdon based P&M PUMPS the UK distributor for Vaughan Chopper Pumps, says it has succeeded in providing a solution by replacing failing submersible pumps.

For example, at Anglian Water’s pumping station in Cambourne two Vaughan 30kW / 1460rpm SE6W chopper pumps were specified to handle flows up to 400m3/hr at heads of 17.8. A simple and quick retro fit was all that was required utilising all the existing installation hardware and this provided an effective solution to prevent blockages and instances of drains ‘backing-up’.
