Sewer System Designs

Sewer or sewage systems convey sewage through cities and other populated areas to sewage treatment plants to shield public health and prevent the spared of disease. Sewage is treated to control water pollution before emancipation to surface waters. A control to water pollutions would not only save human lives from illnesses and infections but also prevent aquatic life from decaying.

The sewage system is designed and sized of keeping in mind the population served, commercial and industrial flows flow reaching your zenith characteristics and wet weather flows. All accumulated sever systems are planned to transfer both storm water runoff and manure liquid in the same pipe. Besides the projected sewage flow, the size and characteristics of the watershed are the prevailing design contemplations for combined sewers. Usually, combined sewers cannot handle the volume of runoff, resulting in combined sewer overflows and causing water pollution problems in nearby water bodies.

Separate sanitary sewer systems are premeditated to transport sewage alone. In communities served by undo sanitary sewers, another is erected to convey storm water runoff directly to surface waters. Most municipal sewer systems constructed today are separate sewer systems.

Though separate sewer systems intend to bring only sewage, all sewer systems have some degree of inflow and penetration of surface water and groundwater, which can direct to sanitary. Inflow and infiltration is highly affected by antecedent moisture situations, which also symbolizes an important design consideration in these systems.

A sewer bed is a piece of land typically used by a municipality for the discarding of raw sewage. Usually raw sewage was brought by truck or drawn by horses to be dumped, but the practice has been stopped back in the 1940s.

Amongst the various design parts of sewer system, motor pumps and pipe act as the vital parts. Their use and selection can make a difference in the machine’s working system.

A grinder pump station is an electromechanical structure that depends on electric power for its working, management and alarm functions. The design and selection of E/One’s pump, motor, grinder and level–sensing controls were consummated by optimizing the wastewater transport function of the unit within the essential constraints for unattended, trouble–free function in a residential environment.

A single grinder pump core is common to all models of E/One grinder pumps. This central core contains all of the functioning and control rudiments of the unit and is motorized by a 1 hp, 240v (or 120v), 1,725 rpm capacitor start, thermally protected induction motor. Each of these motor features was carefully well thought-out in the design of the grinder pump station.

The final purpose of the type of pipe to be used is the accountability of the assigned engineer. In addition, the necessities of local codes, soil, terrain, water and weather conditions that prevail will guide this result. Although pipe made-up from any standard and durable material may be used, most LPS systems have been built with PVC and HDPE pipe. Uninterrupted coils of small-diameter, HDPE pipe can be installed with mechanical trenching machines and parallel drilling machines to sewer areas at lower cost and help the system work better.
