Driving reliability in the water supply with rotating equipment solutions

Optimize water treatment and pumping processes with reliable and heavy-duty equipment that ensures efficient water extraction, precise water flow control, reliable pressure regulation, and consistent distribution, resulting in improved water quality, reduced energy consumption, and enhanced overall system efficiency. By achieving optimal pumping and distribution conditions, water supply systems can deliver clean and safe water to meet the needs of growing populations.

In all these stages, proper operation and maintenance of rotating equipment are crucial for efficient water supply and to prevent interruptions in service.

Water Sourcing

In this stage, pumps are used to draw water from various sources such as rivers, lakes, wells, or reservoirs. Submersible pumps are typically used for groundwater extraction, while centrifugal pumps are commonly employed for surface water.

Water Treatment

As discussed in the previous question, water treatment involves several stages (coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, disinfection), many of which involve rotating equipment like mixers, pumps, blowers, and rotating drum filters.

Water Storage

Once treated, water is often stored in large tanks or reservoirs. Pumps are used to move the water into these storage structures, and may also be used to circulate the water within them to prevent stagnation.

Water Distribution

Water is distributed to consumers through a vast network of pipes. This requires the use of pumps to maintain pressure in the system and to push the water to all areas of the distribution network, including areas at higher elevations. Booster pump stations with centrifugal pumps are often employed for this purpose.

Water Supply for Firefighting

In areas where there's a risk of fire, it's important to maintain adequate water pressure in the supply network. High-pressure pumps are often used for this purpose.

Waste Disposal

After water is used, it's transported to wastewater treatment facilities. This involves the use of pumps to move the wastewater, often against gravity.

Building Services

In larger buildings, booster pumps may be used to ensure that water can reach all parts of the building, while sump pumps can be used to remove any water that collects in low-lying areas.

Maintenance & Cleaning

Equipment like pressure washers and rotary brushes, which include rotating parts, can be used for cleaning and maintaining other water supply equipment.


For agricultural purposes, pumps play a vital role in supplying water to the fields, especially in drip and sprinkler irrigation systems.
