Landia pumps solve bad clogging problem in Greenland’s capital city
In Greenland’s capital city, Nuuk (population approximately 17,500), pumps made by Landia have solved a troublesome clogging situation at an important pump station.
A common problem worldwide, even in the city that is home to one third of Greenland’s people, existing pumps were constantly getting clogged by items such as wet-wipes and sanitary products.
Local plumbing company HJ-TEK A/S quickly solved the problem by installing two of Landia’s immersed chopper pumps in the pump well. Designed with a patented knife system, the Landia Chopper Pump is already proving extremely reliable. It has also delivered the added bonus of it by reducing energy usage at the pump station by 50%.
Worldwide, an increasing number of Landia Chopper Pumps and Landia AirJets are being installed as the long-term solution to pump/lift station/wet well clogging, where they ensure that no blanket or crust forms.
In addition, by continuously reducing the particle size of solids, call-outs by maintenance personnel are reduced to just routine inspections, creating significant savings on labour costs.
