Addressing the challenge of wastewater: Keeping the Earth and its water clean
Sewer systems are essential in maintaining the comfort of human life. If we are to protect the cleanliness of the Earth and its water resources, wastewater treatment is an unavoidable issue. True to our nature as a company of water specialists, Tsurumi is working on a variety of wastewater treatment products. Current efforts to address the various challenges faced by wastewater treatment facilities are already beginning to yield results.
Newly developed equipment such as flow generators, aerators, mixers, and sludge dehydrators are effective not only in stabilizing processing and increasing treatment speeds but also in reducing costs and conserving energy. Tsurumi also developed a small-scale manhole pump system that combines a compact, high-performance pump with a control system for use in wastewater collection applications. Our submersible vortex pumps with variable-speed drivers have been recognized as new technologies with the potential to improve the functionality of sewage-related facilities by the Japan Institute of Wastewater Engineering Technology's Construction Technology Review and Certification program.
