Municipal wastewater treatment
Treating wastewater is about maintaining effective mechanical, biological and chemical treatment processes. Grundfos offers a full range of industry-leading solutions for all stages of treatment, ensuring accurate and reliable pumping with intuitive controls and monitoring solutions.
Effective Wastewater Treatment
At wastewater treatment plants, reliability is paramount. Grundfos ensures low lifecycle costs and the accuracy needed for effective mechanical, biological, and chemical treatment processes. Your project benefits through reduced costs and greater operational efficiency. In addition, Grundfos can assist you with the initial identification of needs and provide design expertise throughout the scoping and construction process.
Grundfos continuously advances our products and capabilities to meet the increasing need for connectivity, accuracy, and efficiency in our ever-evolving industry. Our full range of digital dosing pumps and dosing skid systems ensure you have a reliable solution for any wastewater treatment application. We also offer submersible wastewater pumps, mixers and flow makers, grinders, controls and monitoring solutions to ensure accurate, reliable and efficient wastewater treatment from start to finish. Our wastewater treatment line can be used for the following processes:
Inlet Pumping Station: Keeping lifecycle costs low and efficiency high with robust and reliable pumping and monitoring solutions.
Primary Treatment: Helping create optimal conditions for settling with flow conditions and water velocities designed to encourage sedimentation.
Chemical Treatment: Dosing pump systems for processes including precipitation and flocculation, and PLC-controlled, fully automatic systems designed for reliable dosing of organic coagulants or polyelectrolytes.
Biological Treatment: Agitators to equalize flow and load in response to variations in the tank and recirculation of sludge and aeration during the biological processes.
Tertiary Treatment: Disinfection solutions and cleaning equipment for filtration that ensure the treated wastewater is safe for discharge.
Sludge Treatment: Reliable dosing equipment and mixers for sludge thickening and dewatering.

2-Pole VS. 4-Pole Motors for Submersible Solids Handling Pumps
New technologies have altered how we view mechanical and hydraulic challenges. Historically, in the United States, there has been a broad tendency to specify 4-pole nominal 1750 rpm motors for use on submersible solids handling pumps, however, this approach is changing. Many engineers now prefer 2-pole motors for lower flow/higher head applications. Learn about the factors you should consider when selecting a motor type for your application.
We’re Experts on Pump Controls
A drive can help lower energy consumption at wastewater pumping stations, but a drive on its own is not enough. For an optimized system, you also need an intelligent and complete wastewater control and monitoring solution.
The Grundfos CU 362 (Dedicated Controls), was developed specifically for network pumping stations and allows for system measurement and calculation, and integration with other monitoring, control, and energy optimizing equipment.
Submersible Wastewater Pumps & Controls for Modern Demands
Grundfos’ range of grinders, submersible wastewater pumps (from 1 to 650 hp) and control panels are designed to stand up to the toughest applications, reduce energy consumption and allow for simple maintenance. See why our solutions are different.
