C&B Equipment Releases Video Case Study of DIP System® Installation
C&B Equipment has released a video case study showing the results of the region’s first Direct In-Line Pump System (or DIP System®) installation. We performed this installation in April for the Norton Correctional Facility. The installation process was completed within only three days.
The DIP System® is designed to make wastewater lift stations much less maintenance intensive while dealing with the trash, wipes, diapers and clothing that, when flushed, clog pumps and sewer lines. The DIP System® effortlessly and automatically shreds these materials, allowing for uninterrupted flow. This also eliminates the labor and costs associated with physically removing, hauling away and disposing of the materials.
“The most important aspect of the DIP System® … is that it will solve the high labor costs experienced in maintaining and cleaning wastewater lift station pumps,” says Jon Dunham, Key Account Manager for C&B.
Our video case study identifies several other key benefits of converting existing wet well pumping stations to the DIP System®. They include:
- System is self-sufficient and can adapt speed automatically to flow intake
- System can be managed remotely, eliminating the need to send a crew to the site
- Reduced manpower required to remove and reinstall clogged pumps
- Rapid install and less excavation needed for new construction
These benefits have proved true for the Norton Correctional Facility in the three months since installation.
“Our application here at our facility is a little unique,” says Joel Hrabe, Deputy Warden of the Norton Correctional Facility. “We never know for sure what’s going to get flushed down the wastewater system.
“We absolutely have not had to shut our sewer system down to repair, pull pumps, to unclog pumps—none of that has happened since installation. … I would recommend the DIP System® wholeheartedly.”
