Why Should You Purchase A Dewatering Pump With A Control Panel?

The control panel of a pump is used to automate the mechanics of motor control applications in water-based systems. It includes power components that determine how the pump motor works as well as several devices for operator control. There are also other sensors that help automate the machinery. 

A majority of the time, pump control panels are for use outdoors. In these cases, they are enclosed by a protective layer that allows you to install the panel near a supply of water such as a well so that there is no risk of water damage to it. This is why it is very helpful to buy a dewatering pump with a control panel.

A pump control panel comes in various types and has different features. They can be pre-packaged, for heavy-duty or medium-level use. They can be single-phase, three-phase, duplex, or simplex control panels. They come in different current ratings and voltages. For a dewatering pump, you must choose a pump control panel that serves the purpose adequately.

Determine whether you want your dewatering pump to be used in harsh industrial conditions and the scale at which you plan to use it. These factors will help you select the right pump control panel for it. 

For dewatering purposes, you will probably have to use a pump that can drain waterlogged pits, floods, or entire floors in your industrial site. When you use it is also a significant factor. For example, draining floods in the monsoon will be a heavy-duty job, so it is important to take cognizance of this. The control panel you choose must support these operations properly by protecting the pump from water and other damage at all costs — its main function. It must be designed in a sturdy way that will enable it to hold up to the task. 

Look for a control panel that is easy to install and has an entry point at the bottom for the times that the power supply is running underground

After you have identified your needs and observed the environment where you require the pump control panel, you will be ready to select a suitable control panel. Note that if a pre-packaged pump control panel will not meet your needs, you can always get a customized pump control panel tailored according to your preferences.For more information on industrial pumps, motors, and other equipment, please contact us at +91 98199 07445.

Is Your Construction Site Safe? Do You Have A Proper Dewatering Solution?

Dewatering of a construction site refers to the process of water removal from pits or excavations to create a dry base where work can take place. If there are trenches filled with water or floods, the site will be unsafe and unsound to operate on. This is why dewatering pumps are used to drain these water-logged areas with a high water table or insufficient slope to make the site a more conducive workplace. 

Dewatering Pump Considerations for Shaft Construction

Another major factor when dewatering a site is to ensure that the water is discharged safely at an appropriate location, preferably into a wetland, lake, or storm sewer. Otherwise, there may be risk of problems like soil erosion and instability.

A Checklist of Precautions to Take When Dewatering

  • Do not pump water directly into slopes
  • Discontinue dewatering if you notice any signs of erosion or instability
  • Ensure that dewatering channels are stable and covered with protective vegetaion or grass if possible
  • Do not dewater when there are heavy rains in progress
  • Do not directly discharge water that has been contaminated with chemicals or grease without separating them

Dewatering Pumps for your construction site

So how can you select the correct dewatering pump for your needs? Let’s take a look at different types of dewatering pumps and their benefits to get a better idea.

Self Priming pumps

As the name suggests, a self-priming pump has a special built-in mechanism that enables it to prime itself without manual intervention. They also come with a flood-control feature for quick dewatering and wastewater management. They can be used for frequent pumping operations and use less power and time to run than other centrifugal pumps. They are safe to operate and are the perfect choice for the monsoon.

Eterna CW/BW series

The Eterna CW/BW series of sewage dewatering submersible pumps are another great option. They can remove stagnant water from the basement, underground parking, and garages. These pumps drain accumulated stormwater during the monsoons, empty water tanks and pits, and remove wastewater from kitchens, hotels, clubs, and surplus water from sumps.

Auto prime pumps

An auto prime pump can provide a safe, efficient, and cost-effective solution for pumping larger liquid volumes. It is portable, simple to use, sturdy, and ideal for pumping water when suction is difficult. It can also be used to pump a variety of liquids (of different viscosities) apart from water, such as slurry. Auto prime pumps are useful in a vast variety of ways such as in groundwater control, sewage over-pumping, wellpoint dewatering, flood relief, mine dewatering, pipe relining, industrial sludge pumping, marine ballasting, tank sediment clearing, and emergency dewatering services.

Cutter pumps

Cutter pumps are designed to process heavy industrial waste and raw sewage material and to classify general wastewater types. The way they have been built eliminates any chances of clogging that is usually caused by oversized particles and objects like plastic bottles, aluminum cans, ropes, cables, fabrics, and all flushable products.

Cutter pumps can be used to drain sewage and wastewater from buildings and kitchens, and to move sewage and wastewater between water treatment facilities of factories and commercial sites.

At VEMC, we provide all the above types of dewatering pumps, so you can take your pick from any series that suits your requirements best for the monsoon season.

Preventing Water from Affecting Your Site

If you know that the soil in the area is less permeable than usual, you can try to cut down on the dewatering process by separating the layer of soil that is low in permeability from other sources of water. Slurry walls, sheet piles and grout curtians may prove useful alternatives to keep out water from coming into the construction base. Although doing this will probably not eliminate the problem completely, it comes in handy when the water table is high. You may still have to dewater the area to remove residual rainfall, but it is advisable to conduct a comprehensive engineering analysis to determine how this process will affect the other areas.

Methods, Tips & Precautions for Construction Dewatering

Dewatering is the removal of water, where it is drained out by pumping from a particular location. Basically, dewatering provides a dry foundation to work on by reducing the ground water table of the site. Whether you are constructing, running sand, or repairing sewers, dams, buildings, tunnels, or a basement, dewatering can prove very useful.

Choosing the right method for your project is very important. There are four main methods of dewatering — the well point method, eductor wells, open slump pumping, and deep well point method. Let’s take a look at them.

Well Point Method

In the well point method, the groundwater is channelled by the pump through the header pipe before getting discharged. This is a fairly, flexible and cost effective method under a wide variety of soil conditions.

Educator Well

This dewatering method is a lot like the well point system, but instead of a vacuum, high-pressure water is used to draw water into the well points. This method can be an effective in soils that are less permeable.

Open Slump Pumping

In the open slump pumping method, slumps and drains are constructed at one or more points of the excavated pit. These then collect the groundwater. This is one of the most convenient and cost-efficient methods.

Deep Well Point Method

The deep well point method is appropriate for a deep excavation when a large amount of groundwater needs to be removed.

Precautions to Take in Dewatering

  • Make sure to conduct the process under special supervision and look out for any signs of instability or soil erosion.
  • Do not pump the water directly into slopes.
  • Used a wooded buffer if you can.
  • Choose an appropriate area to discharge the water, ideally a forest buffer zone.
  • Ensure that the channels used for dewatering are stable and covered by vegetation or grass if possible.
  • Avoid dewatering during heavy rains.
  • When removing water that is contaminated with chemicals, grease or oil, do not discharge it directly. Use an oil-water separator before disposal.
  • Make sure you have all the relevant permits and licenses for dewatering before discharging water.
  • Check and verify the state of the water table at the location of dewatering. If it is too close to the surface, the plan may not work.

What Type Of Oil Should You Put In Your Commercial Screw Compressor?

Just as parts of your car and other appliances need to be lubricated in order to perform properly, so does your air compressor. But how can you tell what kind of oil is suitable for your air compressor, particularly a commercial screw compressor? To understand this, let’s first take a look at the role of air compressor oil.

Air compressor oil is a lubricant that helps to reduce the early wear and tear of air compressors. It can either be synthetic or natural and varies in characteristics like makeup and viscosity. It is important to note that air compressor oil is different from motor oil. For one, the latter contains detergent and much more carbon and sulfur.

Apart from lubrication, the benefits of using air compressor oil are many:

1. Absorbs heat

The oil keeps the air compressor at a cooler temperature by soaking in the heat that is emitted.

2. Resisting oxidation

The additives present in air compressor oil help keep the oxidation and acid formation processes at bay.

3. Improves longevity

The additives in air compressor oil also play a role in lengthening its shelf life, keeping the components of the machine protected when in standby mode, and increasing the compatibility of the oil with various conditions.

4. Stands up to the cold

Air compressor oil remains viscous even in cool temperatures, unlike many other lubricants.

The two main types of air compressor oil are standard and synthetic

  1. The standard type of air compressor oil contains a mineral oil base. This makes it cheaper than synthetic and is advisable for light or medium-duty and those who need not use their compressors continuously.
  2. On the other hand, synthetic air compressor oil contains a heavily processed and refined synthetic base. As a professional who runs an air compressor more than thrice a week, this is a suitable option for you. What’s more, synthetic oil keeps the air compressor functioning smoothly and with little to no noise. It also does a good job of preventing it from overheating.

For commercial screw compressors, it is best to use synthetic oil. These do not contain additives or sulfur that can often produce an unwanted buildup on the valves. They are also consumed at a slower rate than the standard kind, help to prolong the life span of the compressor, and stay cooler during operations. What’s more, they create fewer deposits of sludge and carbon that can adversely affect the performance of the machine, and produce air discharge at lower temperatures than standard oil. Synthetic oil also makes for safer operating conditions as its ignition temperatures are much higher than standard oil.

Suffice to say, synthetic oil is the best choice to keep your commercial screw compressor performing optimally.
