Water transport in Ontario: KSB’s high-efficiency pumps respond to an increase in demand.

In 2004 the Regional Municipality of Peel began expanding its waterworks, one of Canada's largest water and wastewater infrastructures. From 2010, Peel entrusted this demanding project to KSB.

The Airport Road Pumping Station in the region of Peel, Ontario.

The project: Safe drinking water for Ontario

The Airport Road Reservoir and Beckett Sproule Pumping Station supplies three large and rapidly growing regions in Ontario with adequate and safe drinking water. It was designed and built in 2005 to meet supply needs for the coming years, but also with the ability to be easily upgraded to larger capacities in order to keep pace with the region’s rapidly increasing population. The Beckett Sproule Pumping Station secures the water supply for the Airport Road station.

The client: The regional municipality of Peel

The Regional Municipality of Peel serves 1.4 million residents and approximately 173,000 businesses in Brampton, Caledon and Mississauga. It is the second largest municipality in Ontario, after Toronto.

The challenge: Reliable and high efficient pumps

In 2010 the region was seeking pumps with impressive hydraulic efficiencies for its new Beckett Sproule Pumping Station. One year later, the region was in need of more robust and efficient pumps, this time in order to increase capacity at the Airport Road Pumping Station.

The solution: Single-stage volute casing pumps with impressive hydraulic efficiencies

In both cases KSB was chosen as the successful bidder, and in 2010 supplied the first six highly engineered RDLO axially split, single-stage volute casing pumps. One year later, in 2011, the decision was made once more in favour of KSB’s reliable and efficient products, and another six RDLO pumps were supplied.

At the customer’s request, all RDLO pumps were supplied with split mechanical seals. As is required for all drinking water applications, the inside of each pump casing is coated in line with the NSF/ANSI 61 requirement.

The result was impressive: in terms of hydraulic acceptance, the efficiency of the RDLO pumps even exceeded the values guaranteed in the offer.
