Potable Centrifugal Booster Station

Potable Centrifugal Booster Station

This pump system, located in Eugene, Oregon, is a dynamic potable booster system delivering 25 GPM to for domestic use and up to 750 GPM for high flows. We were challenged by the customer to engineer a low-cost, low-profile automated booster pump station. We were responsible for the complete vertical design and development of this pump system to meet the exact specifications required for the application – including the custom fabricated building which encloses and protects the pump system.

Location: Eugene, Oregon

Flow Rate: 25 – 750 GPM

Boost Pressure: 51 PSI

Discharge Pressure: 77 PSI

Pumps: Two 40 HP End-Suction Centrifugal and Two 2 HP Vertical Multi-Stage

Customer Challenge: To design a low-cost, low-profile automated booster pump station to their exact specifications and purpose.

Project Features & Benefits:

  • Includes two vertical multi-stage domestic pumps and two end-suction centrifugal high flow pumps.
  • System designed to provide the entire flow range with any pump out of service.
  • Each pump is driven by a Premium Efficient TEFC motors and controlled by low harmonics variable frequency drives.
  • Pressure Relief Valve with relief alarm signaling limit switch

Wayne Bell

Clearwater Engineering, LLC

"Thank you for developing a compact, cost effective, and innovative package pump station to meet the needs of the Eugene Water and Electric Board. The project site presented many challenges such as constraining property lines, steep topography, and high visibility; making a compact package pump station the most ideal solution. I have enjoyed working with the PPS staff and look forward to our next project."
