Edelstahl

Pipe Size:

Location:

St. Louis, Missouri

Solutions:

  • Corrosion Resistance

The Lower Meramec Wastewater Treatment Plant, operated by the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD), treats an average of 15 million gallons of wastewater each day. In 2012, investors decided to provide billions of dollars over a span of a generation to improve water quality, build community rain scaping, and carry out far-reaching system improvements, including upgrades to aging pipe and facilities.

The influent pump station was an essential upgrade of the Lower Meramec facility. The original ductile iron (DI) pipe installed at the plant had experienced corrosion, and the MSD made the decision to replace the DI piping – much of which was 200 ft underground – with stainless steel (SS) for greater corrosion resistance and longevity.

On the pump station, Victaulic provided solutions for stainless steel pipe. This included 4-, 6-, and 8-inch grooved couplings, valves, and fittings that were utilized on the subsurface drain lines. The Victaulic solutions utilized the following grooved products:
