Stratquip’s Response:

Following a site assessment Stratquip recommended an automated high flow, high head staged pumping system; which allowed for minimal operator input.

The Outcome:

Stratquip supplied a high flow, high head initial feed pump and a high flow, high head automatically operated boost pump to overcome the high demands on site infrastructure resulting from the projects requirements and timeframes.

Client’s Comments:

“Having never stage pumped before I was nervous, but this system worked without flaw.” —Project Engineer
