TOP illustration TOP: The optimum pump station
ITT Water & Wastewater UK Ltd have now shaped the future in self-cleaning sumps with the TOP sump design.

The TOP design gives you:

• An integrated, self-cleaning design
• Minimum residual water volume and maximum sump velocities
• Tested and verified performance
• Proven Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer (GRP) construction
• Depths between 2 and 6m
• Prefabricated pump station solutions for new applications
• External GRP valve chambers as an option
• Bespoke designs available to meet customer requirements

How effective is the new TOP sump geometry when compared with older sump designs?
In a series of performance tests conducted in laboratory conditions, sumps with different diameters and floor configurations were evaluated alongside each other to gauge their ability to prevent sediment build-up.

Standard 1600 mm sump vs. TOP 100 sump
Comparing the effectiveness of two dual pump sump designs in a back-to-back test.
The sumps were inter-connected with 49 kg of solids in each and the system was filled with 800 liters of water shared between the two.

Water was pumped back and forth from one sump to the other a total of ten times. Stop level in each case was the top of the volute.
Result:
• 94 kg in 1600 mm sump

• 4 kg in TOP 100 sump
