Sewer bypass: 1,000 m³ sewage water per hour through 225 metres of HDPE pipe

For the drainage of the sewer GMB needed a temporary pump installation with a pumping capacity of 1,000 m³ per hour. To pump this volume of raw sewage water, Eekels used a Betsy 300 diesel engine pump. These centrifugal pump is able to effortlessly pump sewage water containing solids thanks to their unique clog-free impeller. From the intake point Eekels mapped out a 225 metre pipeline route to move the sewage water. Plastic HDPE pipes with a diameter of 400 millimetres are highly suitable for the required pumping capacity. With a wide range of pipes, Eekels Pompen can easily create a complete sewer bypass for sewer renovations.

Unique 400 mm pipe bridge for HDPE pipes

On the route, the pipeline had to cross a public road in two places. To provide suitable pipe bridges, Eekels engineers developed a unique pipe bridge for HDPE pipes.

A reinforced 600-millimeter pipe of galvanized steel now guides the HDPE pipes over the pipe bridge. This customization offers GMB Rioleringstechnieken the perfect solution for a carefree sewer renovation.
