Since Dewatering Pumps constitute a significant part of any drilling project, it’s natural to ask about their purpose. After all, what would a pump do if it weren’t for a specific purpose? You’ll be surprised to learn that a Dewatering Pump isn’t just for moving water from one place to another. These units are also used for other purposes, such as cleaning and maintaining the reservoir.
End suction pumps
Various types of Dewatering Pumps can be used for dewatering. One of the most common is the end suction pump. These pumps have a volute casing at the bottom, with a discharge at the top. These pumps are also available in single-stage and multistage models.
The best type of pump for your application depends on various factors. This includes the depth and variety of groundwater, the distance from the water source to the pump, and the environment in which the pump is used.
The best way to find the right pump for your project is to talk with a specialized expert. An experienced dewatering specialist can guide you through the entire process. AllightSykes is a recognized dewatering expert who can help you choose the best option. They also have a quick guide to explain the key features of different pumping systems.
Submersible borehole pumps
Typically, these pumps are used in mining to extract water from aquifers and a water table. However, they are also used in irrigation, drinking water supply, construction sites, industrial facilities, and more.
A submersible borehole pump is a centrifugal pump designed to be submerged in liquid. These pumps are usually designed to fit into narrow and shallow holes. In addition, the pumps are typically constructed with corrosion-resistant materials to withstand the conditions of the environment.
These pumps are available in single or multistage designs. The maximum pressure generated by the pump is based on the pump’s pressure head. An optional thrust bearing absorbs the axial forces created by the pump.
The SFQ series features heavy-duty cast 316 stainless steel and is ideally suited to seawater applications. The LB series has a single-phase high-head pump and is suitable for many draining applications. The HS series is equipped with a spiral pump casing and an agitator.
Well-point dewatering pumps
Unlike the traditional deep well dewatering method, WellPoint dewatering systems are designed for more minor excavations. Especially suited for fine-grained soils, these systems allow contractors to remove water from the ground effectively.
The basic principle of the WellPoint Dewatering system is to draw down the groundwater level by using a vacuum. The individual small wells are then connected to a surface-mounted centrifugal pump.
The good points are installed in an appropriate spacing around the proposed excavations. They are then secured to the bottom of the riser pipe with mesh strainers. This ensures that the sand particles do not enter the ground. A bentonite lining protects the lower end of the wellpoint to provide a long-term seal.
The Well Point System can be installed by drilling, rotary, or augering. It is also a versatile pre-drainage solution that can be deployed quickly and efficiently.
A WellPoint comprises a shallow shaft and a piercing tip at one end. A perforated riser pipe is used to connect the wellpoint to the ground. The diameter of the riser pipe is between 38 and 50 mm.
Trifle(TM) hydraulic submersible trash pump
Designed for durability, performance, and dependability, the Triflo(TM) hydraulic submersible trash pump is ideal for the harshest pumping jobs. It is manufactured for heavy-duty industrial applications and rental operations. It also can operate dry for extended periods without damage. It is a lightweight and compact trash pump capable of pumping water, sludge, gravel, and more.
The pump features a urethane bowl and impeller and requires no priming. The pump has a 3″ female NPT output port, flush face couplers, and a direct drive. It comes with a standard 3″ Cam Loc fitting. The pump also features a free-flow impeller, replaceable wear plates, and stainless steel construction. The TP30 is designed to be a low-maintenance trash pump that requires no priming.
The TP03 has a discharge capacity of 450 gallons per minute. It can handle solids up to three inches in diameter. The TP08 is a powerful pump that can pump up to eight hundred gallons per minute. It can handle liquids with up to thirty percent solids.
