0 … +1 bar
Special challenges:
Abrasion, foam, high humidity


Wastewater from households and businesses, together with surface water, is carried to the wastewater treatment plant via an extensive sewer network. If the natural gradient is not steep enough, numerous pumping stations are required to create a sufficient height difference. The level measurement in the inlet shaft is used for cost-effective control of the pumps.
