In fixed and mobile installations in marinas, the waste water contained in vessels' tanks must be evacuated and transferred to water treatment plants.
The Rotho peristaltic pump can be located at a distance of hundreds of metres from the quayside thanks to its strong self-priming force. Sewage handled by the Rotho pump reaches the pump through connecting pipelines and is pumped into tanks or reservoirs for storage and treatment.
Pumping slurries is not a problem, even when they contain suspended solid parts. As there are no valves or seals in the pump body, there is no risk of blockage or clogging.
The Rotho can pump from a depth of -8.5 m and can also be operated dry, enabling it to perform transfer operations even at long distances.
