Dewatering pumps stand up to the construction industry

Keeping sites dry. Removing ground water from construction sites before laying foundations is crucial to a dry and safe environment. IFS offers trash, solids-handling, and sand/slurry/sludge pumps that can handle the harshest environments. These pumps can manage abrasive solids and the constant flow of sludge, slurry, and other gritty materials from excavation sites – minimizing downtime.

If your Main Construction Dewatering Concerns Include:

  • Abrasive solids in high-concentration suspension (sand, gravel, or slurry)
  • Maintaining constant flow of sludge, slurry, or gritty materials
  • Variety of environments (trenches, excavations, mines, etc.)
  • Pump corrosion
  • Well point dewatering
  • Keeping minimal downtime for minimal expense

Industrial Flow Solutions Offers the Following Options:

  • High Head (<400’) & High Flow (<1000GPM) heavy-duty options
  • Cast Iron & Hi-Chrome Iron construction
  • Compact/portable options
  • Severe abrasion resistant solids handling pumps
  • Hydraulic, abrasion resistant solids handling pumps
  • Well point dewatering pumps

  ["excerpt"]=>
  string(917) "Galveston seawall cofferdams rebuilt using LWA® dewatering pumps. Galveston, Texas boasts a 17-foot seawall, built in the early 1900s, that protects the city from storms. The engineering feat that followed building the seawall was to raise the entire city up to the edge of the seawall, then slope the island down again to drain the water into the bay. The original engineers accomplished this by pumping sand and seawater slurry underneath buildings to raise the island. The seawater ran off – leaving the sand and building up the island. After Hurricane Ike devastated southeast Texas in 2008, Galveston Island’s seawall was damaged. When Boyer started working on the cofferdams, the existing dewatering pumps failed frequently due to clogging and corrosion from silt, sand, and salt. Read why Boyer Construction replaced existing pumps with BJM Pumps® lightweight, hard metal dewatering agitator pumps."

  ["excerpt"]=>
  string(749) "A Bridge for Progress: Building Hudson Bridge foundation while maintaining ecosystem. In late 2013, Tappan Zee Constructors (TZC) began replacing the existing 3.1 mile bridge across the Hudson River in New York. The existing bridge (est. 1955) served more than 138,000 vehicles a day, but had corroded. Read how Industrial Flow Solutions™ customizable Stancor® P/S Series high head dewatering pumps remedied two big concerns for this project. First, the bridge’s concrete foundation had to cure properly, which required cooling water to run 150ft into the air at a flow rate that would maintain the integrity of the structure. Second, ensuring the Hudson River water temperature would remain at viable levels for the underwater ecosystem."
