Floating Platform

All NUMEDIC Effluent Pumps can be mounted on floating platforms for use in large ponds or sumps.

FLOATING PLATFORM - 6, 7 or 8 DRUM

Platforms are fitted with mesh on the  frame.  Boom lengths are 6.5m, 8m, 10m, 12m, 18m or manufactured to suit the installation. The boom is attached to a bracket and an onshore pipe, which is concreted into the ground on the side of the pond. 

The floating platform can pivot at this pipe and can be simply pulled to the bank for pump/stirrer servicing.  The effluent is pumped through the boom to the mainline.  There is room on the NUMEDIC floating platform for Effluent Stirrers to be mounted if required.

Optional extras include handrails and legs.

4 drum floating platforms should only have a pump mounted on them.  If a pump & stirrer is required then these should be mounted on a 6 drum or larger floating platform.

TANK OPTION

These systems use guide rails which are bolted to the bottom and side of the concrete tank.  The platform is located by the guide rails in the centre of the tank and can float unrestricted upwards or downwards depending on the level of liquid in the tank.  Effluent is pumped to the mainline from the pump via a section of heavy duty flexible rubber hose.

IMPORTANT SAFETY MESSAGE: CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN WHEN AROUND EFFLUENT PONDS AND FLOATING PLATFORMS.  NEVER WORK ALONE.
