How Do We Use a Sewage Pump Correctly?

Nov. 27, 2020

As the operating costs and labor costs of wastewater treatment plants increase, so do the costs of community wastewater treatment. However, operators of wastewater treatment plants are constantly optimizing their processes in order to increase the reliability of wastewater treatment technologies and meet higher economic requirements. 

Sewage pump is a kind of centrifugal impurities, with a variety of forms: such as submersible and dry two, the most commonly used submersible WQ submersible sewage pump, the most common dry sewage pump such as W type horizontal sewage pump and WL type vertical sewage pump two. Mainly used for conveying municipal sewage, feces or liquid containing fibers, confetti and other solid particles in the medium, usually the temperature of the conveyed medium is not greater than 80 ℃. As the conveyed medium contains fibers that are easy to entangle or cluster. Therefore, the flow path of the pump is easy to clog, once the pump is blocked will make the pump can not work normally, or even burn the motor, resulting in poor sewage. This will have a serious impact on city life and environmental protection. Sewage pump suppliers teach you how to properly use a sewage pump.

Sewage Pump

1. Confirm the correct direction of rotation of the motor.

The rotation direction of the motor should be clarified, there are many types of sewage pumps can produce water when rotating forward and reverse, but when the reverse water is small, the current is large, the reversal time will damage the motor windings.

2. Leakage protector installation  

The function of an earth leakage protector, also called a life preserver, can be understood from the word "life preserver". Because sewage pumps work underwater, they are prone to leakage, causing power loss and even electric shock. If equipped with a Leakage Protector, as long as the value of sewage pump leakage exceeds the value of the action current of the Leakage Protector (generally no more than 30 mA), the Leakage Protector will cut off the power of the sewage pump, ensuring safety, while avoiding leakage and waste of electricity. 

3. Do not let the sewage pump work overload for a long time.  

In order to avoid overloading the pump for a long time, do not pump water with a large amount of sand and always observe whether the current value is specified on the nameplate, if you find that the current is too large, you should shut down and check. In addition, the pump should not run for too long in order to avoid overheating and burning the motor.  

4. Pay attention to daily maintenance  

Always check the motor, if you find cracks on the lower cover, damaged or invalid rubber seal ring, etc., you should replace or repair it in time to avoid water infiltration into the sewage pump.
