Pump manufacturer Xylem recently ran a wastewater operator recertification class at its Indianapolis branch. The course, Sewer Collection System Reliability, earned participants four continuing education units. It covered a range of topics, including: portable pump usage in collection systems, temporary bypass system design, permanent installations, basic pump hydraulics, and sustained high efficiency pumping.
“We are well-known for our Godwin and Flygt pumps,” said Xylem training coordinator Peter Snow. “This was an opportunity to also share some of our knowledge behind the products. It was great to engage operators and offer ourselves as a technical resource.”
Because of the positive response to the course, Xylem plans to lead additional courses in the future, focused on wastewater and dewatering.
Xylem, based in Bridgeport, N.J., manufacturers as markets Godwin Dri-Prime and Flygt electric submersible pumps.
