E/One Grinder Pump Case Studies in Pumps & Systems Magazine

The current issue of Pumps & Systems magazine features a special section devoted to grinder and chopper pumps. This section features and article entitled, "Grinder Pump Driven Pressure Sewer Systems." The article highlights two communities that use E/One grinder pumps:

Athens, Tennessee
Athens, which we talked about here a few months ago, suffered from extreme infiltration problems. An aging gravity sewer system could not handle the town's wastewater flow, and rainwater that bypassed the pump station made the situation worse.

Instead of building a new gravity sewer system, Athens decided to use a pressure sewer system using E/One grinder pumps. Installation was less disruptive, saving on construction costs. The reduced flow into the wastewater treatment plant resulted in an annual (treatment) savings of more than $89,000.

Marion, Massachusetts
The New England coast poses several geo-technical challenges: sloping terrain, rock, high groundwater and sandy soil. When Marion needed to expand its sewer system, pressure sewer was the obvious choice.

Pressure sewer service to the 455 homes saved 40 percent over the cost of the proposed gravity system -- and was completed in half the time of the gravity sewer proposal.

E/One Debuts New Grinder Pump Stations at WEFTEC

WEFTEC is going right now at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, where E/One is debuting two new large-capacity grinder pump stations:

WH471 & WH472 Grinder Pump Stations

The WH471 and WH472 are new additions to E/One's W-Series product line. The station is an open-wetwell design that boasts a 476-gallon capacity. The tank is made from HDPE and can have one (WH471) or two (WH472) Extreme Series grinder pumps. It's an ideal choice when extra capacity is required.

WH482 Grinder Pump Station

THe WH482 is the other new addition to E/One's W-Series product line. The station is also an open-wetwell design, but offers 486 gallons of capacity. The tank is made from HDPE and is a duplex (2 pumps) grinder pump station. The WH482 can accommodate up to four Extreme Series grinder pumps.

Both grinder pump stations are expected to be available in December 2009. More information about these grinder pump stations is available on E/One's web site at
