Extending the Life of Small Wastewater Plant in Switzerland - Tsurumi (Europe)
Tsurumi’s FHP decanting pumps provide a cost effective solution to limited tank capacity in small wastewater treatment plants. The pumps remove supernatant water to leave only pure sewage, reducing the overall volume of stored waste and extending the life of the plant. Iseltwald wastewater plant in Switzerland uses five FHP pumps for this very purpose.

Small wastewater treatment plants do not have the luxury of excess space. With limits on rotting tower size and even tighter limits on budgets, plants must maximise tank capacity to perform as economically as possible in the long term. Tsurumi’s FHP pumps enable plants to maximise their working life through a cost effective and easy to install solution. The pumps discharge buoyant water from sludge tanks at a predetermined depth to ensure only pure sewage is stored.
“The FHP pump is unique in its operation,” explains Carsten Bode, product manager at Tsurumi Europe. “By removing clear water from the middle of the tank, it drastically reduces the volume of waste to be stored and, in turn, extends the working life of the treatment plant. The FHP’s versatility means it is suitable for any application that requires the removal of clear water from a settling but mixed wastewater solution. Our FHP pumps also have a reputation for reliability and longevity.We installed our first seven years ago and it’s still going strong.”
