Clean Water Pumps

In the context of wastewater treatment, a "clean water pump" refers to a type of pump specifically designed to handle relatively clean or treated water within the treatment process. It refers to water that has undergone some level of treatment and is free from large debris, solids, or contaminants that would require heavy-duty pumping equipment.

Clean water pumps are typically used in most stages of the wastewater treatment process where the water has already undergone some level of treatment. These pumps are used for tasks such as transferring water between treatment units, circulating water within treatment tanks or basins, and pumping treated effluent for further processing or discharge. Clean water may also be mixed in with processes along the way such as disinfection and filtration to provide smooth operation.

Clean water pumps differ from other types of pumps used in wastewater treatment, such as raw sewage pumps or sludge pumps, which are designed to handle untreated or heavily contaminated wastewater containing large solids, organic matter, and other pollutants. Clean water pumps are usually more

specialized and optimized for handling water that has

undergone initial treatment and requires less robust

pumping capabilities.

The specific type of pump used will depend on the application’s requirements, such as the flow rate, pressure, and viscosity of the liquid being pumped. These pumps transfer the treated effluent from one location to another within the treatment plant or to its final discharge point. They facilitate the continuous flow of water through the systems and aid in the production of clean water for discharge or reuse.
