Rapid Response Flood Control Pumping Package
04 December 2020
Designed by the men in the field and manufactured by BBA Pumps. This is a mobile pump system with a capacity of 130 m3/min (7800 m3/hour) which can be quickly set up in case of high flood water emergencies. With no time to lose and failure not being an option, the heroes who keep our feet dry know what’s best.
Their needs are shaped from their own practical experience. So upon receiving a sketch outlining their design our innovation team was put to work and we came up with this great end result. Its complete mobile pumping system, equipped with hook-lift transport frames, which in case of flooding allows trucks to be safely loaded and ready to go within a minute.
Upon arrival on site, the unloading can be done within a minute video and the pump installation can then be set up. Installing the steel suction pipe still takes some time, but the unique BBA Pumps suction strainer video helps to solve this. On the discharge side of the pump there is a large volume non-return valve and a manifold fitted with quick couplings. Then, with the help of a couple of people onsite, the lightweight 12-inch pipes with quick connectors are put in place and the pumpset can be started.
