This project was quite dynamic in terms of being my first independent engineering project. Initial quote through to production this has been a great project. Calculations were done on volumetric flow rate, propeller thrust for agitation and buoyancy, The pontoon allows for the Sump of 13 M^3 to empty in 2 hours without sedimentary deposits.
The sum feeds a settling pond for irrigation purposes.
The previous arrangement meant the pump would operate for 3 minute intervals due to being on a fixed mounting which is inefficient as the pump needed to re pump the head every 3 minutes.
Great project, great client.
The agitator unit is the real focus of the design including the gearbox spec and the way in which a single mountsupports the frame, propshaft assy, coupling, bearing and float guides.
