Simulation of Pumping Stations

What are the benefits of hydrograv simulations?

Hydraulic issues already start at the inflow to a waste water treatment plant. Here hydrograv simulations can have a great benefit, e.g. for

  • Comparison of variants for new constructions or reconstructions
  • Optimization of hydraulic and material distributions
  • Deposition problems
  • Determination of hydraulic losses

Detailed analysis of the material distribution

Optimal flow and proof of screw pumps

With CFD simulation it is possible to proof the inflow and outflow area of screw pumps considering the impact of a real rotating screw. In this example an unwanted scum layer forms in the inflow area of the screw pump.

On the basis of the simulations this effect could be virtually reproduced and geometry optimizations for prevention developed.
