Challenge | Solution Examples

Across all industries there are challenges that present themselves on a regular basis. Here are some examples of a challenge that you might face in the Municipal & Wastewater industry, and how Pivotal Pumps will work to find a solution that works for you.


Challenge
The finished water pumps at a municipal water treatment facility for a major US city are required to meet certain food grade requirements, including but not limited to the use of food grade greases and thread lubricants. Each component must be thoroughly flushed with deionized water to remove any residue from the manufacturing process. Municipalities are routinely faced with difficulties in finding qualified repair centers that are equipped to meet these requirements.
Solution
Pivotal Pumps specializes in complying with food grade specifications used for finished water pumps. Our proven processes ensure that all customer and regulatory requirements are not just met, but exceeded. We are accustomed to using food grade lubricants as well as deionized water flushing processes that remove all residues.

Challenge
When a natural disaster strikes, many municipalities rely upon large centrifugal flood control pumps to move water out of low lying areas and keep their residents safe. During these events, equipment failure simply is not an option. For these critical municipal pumping applications, the utmost care must be taken to ensure quality of materials and workmanship during the repair process.
Solution
Pivotal Pumps ensures that all pumps being repaired meet our high quality standards. All critical dimensions are verified prior to reassembly with calibrated measuring and test equipment. Critical pump settings are dual verified during the final reassembly process, recorded and supplied to the municipality in the final documentation package. Pivotal Pumps will then supply a certificate of conformance with each repair, further certifying that all customer requirements have been met, and that the pump has been verified to be in excellent working condition.
