Vertical Ejector Pump

Ejector pumps are required where wastewater cannot flow to its destination by means of gravity. There are two basic types of ejector pumps.

One is the vertical (Tramco & Weil) where the motor is mounted on the cover of the basin, supported by its shaft connected to the pump housing inside the basin. (These types of ejectors will commonly last up to 40 years and provide much more reliability )

Submersible Ejector Pump

The second type is the  submersible, where the pump is submerged inside a basin. Sewage ejectors units normally handle up to 2-inch spherical solids and range from 1/3 to 1 horsepower. Sewage submersible ejectors also hve 2 styles, non-clogs and grinders.

Non-clogs have the ability to pump high volume and can handle solids from 2 inches thru 4 inches and are used both in residential and municipal lift stations.
Grinder pumps grind solids instead of passing them. They are sized only for residential or small commercial locations, often pumping to a pressure sewer system but also in gravity sewers with high vertical lifts or long horizontal runs. The farther the distance the waste must be lifted, the more powerful the pump must be to do the job. The distance of lift in feet is referred to as ‘head’. Head being a unit of measure equal to the vertical pressure exerted by water at one-foot increments of depth.
