Lift stations are used to elevate and transport wastewater through collection systems when continuation of gravity flow is no longer feasible. In flat terrain, sewage en route to a wastewater treatment system may increase in depth where it is impractical to continue by gravity flow. Highly efficient sewage lift stations can be installed to lift the wastewater to an intercepting sewer at a higher level.
Tipton Environmental International, Inc. lift stations are completely fabricated at the factory for ease of installation at the project site. These prefabricated units are available in structural steel or molded fiberglass. Efficiently designed and self-contained, they can be installed with minimal time and expense. The units are portable and reusable. Lift stations are relatively small in design and are usually installed below grade in any location, and can be landscaped to match the surrounding area.
The custom made automatic electrical control system is designed and manufactured to operate the pump(s) without the need for continuous monitoring. Both local and remote monitoring and alarm systems are available for those units installed in remote areas. Various methods are used for controlling the liquid in the wet well chamber. The most popular is polyurethane filled stainless steel mercury switching devices which sense water level in the wet well activation the automatic electrical control system.
Slide rail systems are available to enable the operator to inspect and maintain the submersible pumps from the top of the lift station, eliminating the need for the operator to enter the wet well. The slide rail systems provide a complete sealing between the pumps and the discharge manifold eliminating the need for disconnecting the piping. Those units containing pumps with weight too great for a single man to lift can be supplied with power lifts and/or hoists.
Tipton Environmental International, Inc. offers various types of pumps to meet any differing conditions and applications for lift stations. We make available sewage handling pumps, high solids discharge pumps, submersible grinder pumps, cutter pumps, effluent discharge pumps, and many others.
