Location: Cedar Grove, NJ
Profile: A PumpGuard is placed between the separation tank and ultraviolet clarifiers in a wastewater treatment facility in the Cedar Grove, NJ.
Challenges: The main issue in this facility was that trash was floating on the water’s surface and the ultraviolet light at the clarifier wasn’t getting through the trash to disinfect the water.
Solutions: A PumpGuard Netting System was retrofitted in an existing channel in the ultraviolet clarifiers. The floatables are collected by the net and the water passes through it. Once the trash is retained, the UV light can easily treat the water. The nets maintenance is done once a month.
