Sewage Pump Station Training

Garry at Hydro Innovations Pump Training Centre

Since 2008, Hydro Innovations has been cultivating an extensive range of product knowledge and experience pumping of sewage and industrial wastewater. Now, with the Hydro Innovations Pump Institute with a fully functioning complete sewage pumping station, we are able to pass some of the expertise on to you in a truly impressive way.

Attendees are trained in the selection, troubleshooting, and maintenance of centrifugal pumps. The centre will focus most attention on self-priming pumps, but aspects of the curricula offered include standard centrifugal pumps and submersible pumps, and covers safety issues associated with operating pumps in Australia.

Hydro Innovations Training Centre, called the Hydro Innovations Pump Institute, to assist their customers in the selection, troubleshooting and maintenance of centrifugal pumps. The centre will focus most attention on self-priming pumps, but aspects of the curricula offered will include standard centrifugal pumps and submersible pumps.

The Institute covers two floors, and houses a variety of training assets. The main “attraction” is a full size functioning sewage pump station on the first floor, with suction lines going down into a clear wet well system on the ground floor, demonstrating the self priming pump process very clearly through clear acrylic suction lines. Other training assets include a glass faced pump and a full-size “tear-down” pump.

The glass faced pump is a full size sewage pump with a glass front. This allows observers to see the inside workings of a centrifugal pump, and is capable of demonstrating a raft of troubleshooting scenarios, including air binding, pipe blockages, and many others.

The “tear-down” centrifugal pump enables training for operators and fitters on disassembly and reassembly of a centrifugal pump, including tips on seal and bearing installation, setting sewage pump clearances, and other key elements in repair and maintenance procedures.

The Hydro Innovations team hope that this element of operator training, along with gauge reading and troubleshooting training will help keep pumping assets at their efficient best for long and trouble free time.

Achieving Excellence Through Effective Training Solutions

The aim of the Hydro Innovations Pump Institute is to increase organisational effectiveness in selecting and applying the right sewage pump for each application. With our hydraulics and design programs, we are able to get the most from equipment investment through our troubleshooting and maintenance training programs.

For any organisation to maintain its viability in a highly competitive market, solid training programs are essential. Hydro Innovations understands this and recognises that engineers need to know about the latest technologies and application solutions, and maintenance teams need to be able to read centrifugal pump curves, troubleshoot problems and use leading practices to maximise equipment service life.

On-Site Solutions

When you need training for an entire team, a private on-site consultation or program is a great solution. Our team can come to you to deliver a curriculum tailored to your specific needs. As these sessions can vary substantially in content and training asset requirements, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Tuned to Meet Specific Needs

As we work with customers of various sizes and disciplines, Hydro Innovations are able to discuss training options and tailor programs to suit the needs of each individual organisation.

The vision of the Hydro Innovations Pump Institute is to continuously improve the sewage pump knowledge base of our customers so that they end up with the right pump solutions for their various applications and are able to keep their pumps in Australia at peak operational efficiency for decades of effective pumping.


In-House Solutions

With a variety of hydraulic training assets and tools at our disposal, the Hydro Innovations Pump Institute offers a variety of educational programs at Rydalmere, NSW along with inexpensive travel packages to enable customers and engineering firms to participate.

WHAT IS A SELF PRIMING PUMP?

self priming pump is like any other centrifugal pump, but it is designed with an external casing that “floods” the inner pump or volute. The casing is filled with liquid [usually the same as the liquid to be pumped] and the pump is ready to go. When the impeller rotates in the casing, a low pressure area is formed at the eye of the impeller. Because the pressure is lower than atmosphere, water is pushed up the suction pipe by atmospheric pressure, forcing all the air in the suction line into the pump. The self priming pump mixes the air with the recirculating water in the casing. The air separates from the liquid and is discharged from the casing. When all the air in the suction line has been displaced, the pump is dynamic and delivers flow like any other centrifugal pump.

The Gorman-Rupp Super T Series self-priming centrifugal wastewater/sewage pump has been the world benchmark for this technology since 1963 (>50 years). They have been designed for economical, trouble-free operation, with superior solids handling capability and a large inspection cover to access pump internals for service or blockage removal.

Advantages include:

  • Self-Priming pump has the ability to mount high and dry above the wet well (not in it)
  • Low cost of ownership
  • Greatly reduced OH&S issues – no more working over water/heights/cranes/heavy swinging weights
  • Surface-mounted pumps with easy access for monitoring or service
  • Advanced safety features including pressure relief valve to protect operators
  • Improved maintenance features to greatly reduce maintenance time and costs, with removable rotating assembly
  • A variety of materials of construction to handle abrasive and/or corrosive fluids

The Gorman-Rupp Super T Series sewage and wastewater pumps with Eradicator™ Solids Management System are a series of self-priming centrifugal pumps designed specifically for handling municipal and industrial wastewater containing stringy, difficult to pump, solids in suspension (such as wet wipes, rags and feathers).

They have been designed for economical, trouble-free operation, with design features that deliver superior solids handling capability and a large inspection cover to access pump internals for service or blockage removal.
