Market success for Börger Pumps

Posted: Tuesday 21st August 2012

A PL300 Börger Pump is proving that it can stand the test against crude imported sludge at Anglian Water’s Market Harborough sewage treatment works.

Supplied with a 5.5 kW motor, the Börger PL300 is fitted with long sealing line optimum rotors that increase longevity and volumetric efficiency. This proven rotary lobe Börger pump replaced an old progressive cavity pump and macerator that kept allowing very stringy amounts of rags through, causing the unit to block up.

Anglian Water’s Craft Technician, Graeme Blair commented: “We had to unblock our old progressive cavity pump almost every week, but we’ve only had to attend to the Börger pump once since it was installed in June 2010. It handles solids and rag well indeed”.

The PL300 also has the capability for a suction-lift application at Market Harborough of almost 3 metres. Via the Börger pump (operating at 1.5 bar), the sludge is transferred to a picket fence thickener.

Börger’s work at Market Harborough follows installations of its PL300 Rotary Lobe Pumps at Anglian Water’s Flag Fen WWTW in Peterborough. Furthermore, all sludge processing at Anglian Water’s Caister-on-Sea sewage treatment works is also now handled by Börger pumps.
