Selection of vacuum pump for septic tank
Every bathroom operator understands the importance of vacuum pumps to septic tanks. The performance of the whole truck depends on the equipment. Therefore, if you want to buy a service truck or replace a pump, it is necessary to know what to look for in the pump.
Here, we provide guidance for choosing the right vacuum pump. For many people, cost is the main factor in purchasing anything; however, in the case of vacuum pumps, price is not the only factor, because vacuum pumps work differently in different environments. For example, an oil-free vacuum pump cannot perform the work of a liquid ring vacuum pump or a rotary vane vacuum pump.
The factors you need to consider are:
In terms of performance, find the appropriate suction and speed. In addition to pumps and valves, the performance of vacuum pumps is determined by flexible gears or couplings. The coupling with chloroprene rubber or rubber sleeve has good flexibility in torsion correlation. Coupling provides four-way bending, absorbs misalignment, impact and end-to-end floating. If you have this type of coupling, lubrication and maintenance time can be significantly reduced.
A larger pump does not mean it will work faster; a 500 CFM pump on a 2,400 gallon tank may not work. You'd better know which size of pump supplements which size of tank. First understand your needs and applications, then ask the manufacturer for advice. You also need to know the average running time of the pump.
Maintenance is undoubtedly the biggest determinant. A simpler vacuum pump system will serve you for a long time; it's simple. If you invest in precision pumps, maintenance costs are likely to outweigh their advantages. Purchasing time-tested traditional designs is a good choice.
When replacing the pump, it is a good decision to stick to the same brand. Small changes in specifications can lead to bigger problems. Obviously, the quality of pumps varies from brand to brand; therefore, brand should play an important role in making purchase decisions. Even if you have to cough more money for a brand, don't hesitate, it will pay you back in terms of performance and maintenance.
Take some time to understand the basics of functionality, terminology and performance qualifiers, all of which will greatly help you make decisions that you won't regret in the future. Read magazines and catalogues about septic tanks and industrial vacuum pumps. Access the online directory to check the number of options available to the application. Businessmen can help a lot by talking to them, learning about their experiences, and finding out what works for others.
If you are considering and following what we have just discussed, the pump you will purchase will prove its value over time.
