Abstract:

Dr. Victor F. Medina conducted a site visit on 12 June 2017 for the evaluation of a sludge pump clogging issue at an industrial waste pretreatment plant in the Ceres Industrial Park, Vicksburg, MS. Escorted by Mr. Pablo Diaz of the Port of Vicksburg, the operating issue was that the sludge pump routinely clogs. The sludge material had accumulated around the ball that serves as the check valve, preventing its operation. The ERDC team offered recommendations based on the site visit to resolve the pump clogging issue.
