SITE:
Pataskala, OH
Southwest Licking County is a rural water and wastewater district that covers about 100 sq. miles. The wastewater treatment plant is designed to handle 2.5 million gallons per day.

APPLICATION:
Sources for this lift station are residential, including a trailer park, and several other lift stations. The sewage is pumped to the wastewater treatment plant.

PROBLEM:
T-shirts, mop heads, ropes, rags and undergarments were clogging the non-clog pumps at the station consistently and Service team had to unclog the pumps every week. Constant service
calls would lead to unnecessary expenditure on man-hours, equipment, and fuel.

SOLUTION:
Crane Pumps and Systems devised a solution by providing our new Barnes 4S CMD Sithe 10 HP chopper pump. Since the installation in June 2017, Barnes Sithe has been chopping
and pumping the solids without any need for a service call.

Sithe has definitely led to cost savings in man-hours, equipment cost and fuel cost from not having to come out and pull the pump to remove clogs
