Solving vapour lock issues at US wastewater treatment plant
To solve vapour lock issues with its mechanical dosing pumps, the Beaufort-Jasper Water and Sewer Authority (BJWSA) tested a DDA pump from Grundfos. The mechanical dosing pumps forced operational staff to dilute the sodium hypochlorite, but the SMART Digital DDA-FCM quickly proved far more reliable than the old ones, and the pumps operated without a single vapour lock incident. The DDA also lasts longer on UPS power during a power failure, increasing reliability and safety even further.
