The 1” Recirculation Pump provides increased mixing in the tank by moving effluent from the chamber to the chamber tank, or from tank to tank.
The SludgeHammer Airlift pumps operate on the principle of air displacement of liquid within the pump’s vertical riser. The pump operates with pressurized air that forms a bubble within a containment pipe. This bubble forces liquid held in a vertical riser up when it expands to a sufficient size to overcome the weight of the liquid in the pipe.
Diameter of the vertical riser in the pump is a function of the desired height of lift and the potential for solid clogging. Where suspended solids are in small particulate form, the 1″ diameter is suitable. This diameter provides greater lifting capacity for recycling purposes. Expect lifts of up to 6′ with the 1″ diameter airlift unit.
