Case Study: Explosion-Proof Electric Anchor Pump And Electric Control Panel Improve Landfill Gas Capture

Landfill gas collection and control, leachate recirculation and liquid application are critical to bioreactor landfills designed to maximize environmental recovery. In 2000, the Salem County Utilities Authority Landfill Facility (SCUA) in Alloway, N.J., began recirculating leachate within its landfill mass. Pleased with the initial results, SCUA decided to optimize the process in less than a year and contracted their consulting firm to prepare a plan that builds upon and enhances the facility's existing practices. Another SCUA consultant pointed out that due to the volatile nature of the situation, the methane collection system required an explosion- proof pump. The agreed upon choice was the Blackhawk Explosion-proof Electric Anchor Pump® with Electric Control Panel designed for pumping hazardous fluids and for pumping in potentially hazardous and explosive environments. In June, 2003, SCUA installed the Blackhawk Electric 102E Pump at the facility, an approximately 40-acre landfill in operation since 1988.
