Effluent Sump pontoon
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.
