For all ClearFox® – sewage treatment plants we use only
airlift pumps, if technically possible (approx. up to 300 PE). Airlift-pumps work according to an efficient and siumltaneously simple system. Due to its simplicity and the absence of moved parts, airlift-pumps are as good as immune to clogging.
Sewage treatment plants with airlift-pump technology
- no rotating parts in the water
- no powered parts in the water
- higher efficiency compared to electric pumps
- (nearly) infinite service life
- no “destruction” of organisms
- no clogging like electric pumps
The basic principle of an airlift-pump is shown in the diagram below.
ClearFox® airlift-pumps have been developed specifically for sewage treatment plants.
Airlift Pump / Mammutpumpe
The water is pumped via air-injection at the lower part of the pump. The combination of simple but durable technology is perfectly suited to pump wastewater or biomass in sewage treatment plants.
