CITY OF FLINT - Cake and Digested Sedge Pumping
The City of Flint WWTP have upgraded many of their processes using industry leading Seepex progressuve cavity pumps. In 2013, Seepex provided a demonstration cake pump based on a try it/buy it program to pump 25-35% cake from a belt conveyor into their incinerator. This was a precursor to a planned biosolids unloading station that was scheduled for design to replace their aging incinerator. The Seepex cake pump did everything they expected it would. In 2014 they proceeded with designing and then constructing their new uploading station based on using two Seepex hopper style progressive cavity pumps to move their cake from a pair belt presses and centriguges more than 300 feet horizontally and 30 feet vertically to their two unloading truck bays. Flint has since installed several more Seepex progressive cavity pumps on digested sludge and chemical feed process.
