Failed Pump Chamber Repaired in Major Prison

26th May 2021

Failed Pump Chamber Repaired in Major Prison

The Metro Rod Hull, Lincolnshire and Peterborough (HLP) team were called in to replace the pump chamber pumps, which had failed in a major prison. The prison pumps had failed, and were down to earth electrically along with the debris Mulchers. Once the new pumps and Mulchers had been installed, the chamber would require a man entry with confined space equipment by a Metro Rod engineer.

New pumps were ordered and the installed, and the Mulchers were fitted at the same time, and once this was achieved using a Combination Vacuum Tanker the chamber was cleared of all debris, and a high pressure water jet clean was done, providing the new pumps the best possible start with a totally clean chamber. All works to the pumps and chamber was carried out by the Metro Rod team and the whole process took 3 days to complete and the system was left fully operational.
