Water pollution is one of the most critical issues in big cities like Mumbai. These cities often struggle with heavy pressure on the existing water resources. With domestic and industrial effluents being drained into streams, lakes and rivulets, water shortage is only aggravated.
Sewage treatment is seen as the only redemption against this serious urban crisis. Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs) or Water Treatment Plants (WTPs) have a central role to play in restoring our urban water resources to a great extent.
VEMC is one of the top Control Panel Manufacturers in Mumbai, and in this blog, we explain why it is necessary to automate your WTP/STP pump systems using control panels.
Role of STP/WTP
Sewage treatment plants are highly effective in removing household and industrial contaminants from water. This is despite the presence of heavy solid waste, organic waste and toxic compounds in the discharged water. All of these must be treated effectively before discharging them back into living systems or for human consumption.
A number of techniques are used in STPs. For starters, the simple and natural technique of sedimentation is used to separate the heavy contaminants. Water is allowed to stagnate and heavy impurities settle down at the bottom. The liquid contaminants that continue to float are then removed through ‘clarification’.
With the help of blowers, aeration is used to supply oxygen to bacteria, to break down the organic wastes. Likewise, harmful and toxic contaminants are treated with disinfectants to neutralise their impact.
How Do Pumps Work In Stp/Wtp Workstations?
All the above processes require pumping to displace water from one stage to the next, and finally push it back into usable circulation. Pumping stations in STPs are normally used to distribute, divert, stabilize or stop the water flow. A pumping station typically consists of a tank, pumps and level flow instrumentation. Level flow instrumentation measures the level in the tank and regulates the flow of the liquid to and from the tank.
Benefits Of Automating The Pumps In Stp/Wtp Workstations:
As any MCC Panel Manufacturer can explain, what makes the pumping completely automated is a pre-designed auto-operation module. VEMC is the leading electric panel manufacturer in Mumbai, and here are the topmost benefits of our automated pumping systems:
- Greater Efficiency:
The equipment is remotely accessible, with real-time data flow. Most importantly, by automating the flow, unnecessary operation of pumps is eliminated which saves plenty of energy.
- Better Maintenance Regime:
With sensors and predictive algorithms, you can maintain your workstations better and at lower costs.
- Lower Labour Costs:
With completely automated pumping, there is no need to employ staff for supervision or frequent inspections, which reduces your labour overhead.
- Increased Capacity:
With automated processes, it becomes easy to scale up and optimise wastewater treatment in a much more effective way.
