Belle Greve Pumping Station - T-T to the rescue!



Cheshire based Aquaflow, a division of T-T Pumps, are always prepared to leave their comfort zone to deliver solutions that exceed expectations!

Belle Greve Pumping Station is undergoing an upgrade to prolong its lifespan, work started in 2008 and it is crucial to the island’s future sewage management programme. Aquaflow were approached by the principal contractor working on behalf of Guernsey Water after three DN600 wedge gate valves, supplied a few years ago by a framework manufacturer, had heavily corroded due to being in a saltwater environment.

The valves play a crucial role in controlling the flow and therefore it was very important the issue was resolved as soon as possible. Aquaflow had extensively considered hydraulic parameters and installation characteristics before offering a solution endorsed with technical argument. T-T Pumps Aquaflow secured an order to supply three replacement DN600 gate valves that would withstand these arduous conditions. Aquaflow upgraded the seat and spindle nut material to aluminium bronze and spindle in super-duplex stainless steel. The ductile iron bodied valves were tripled coated in a marine grade two-pack resin to greater than 800 microns.
