In recently fitted out cosmetic concessions areas within leading chain stores, the installer, Face Edge Ltd., found that gravity discharge for the sinks was not an option, so a different solution was required.

DrainMinor 30 self-contained pump systems fitted with Charcovent filters.
The Pump Technology Ltd DrainMinor 30 is a well proven unit, which comprises of a compact GRP tank measuring 380mm x 320mm x 292mm. This houses a reliable, float arm activated submersible Jung Pumpen pump which starts pumping as soon as the water draining into the tank reaches the pre-set level. The pump is fitted with a unique low-level float, reducing to the minimum any static water within the tank.
Waste water is then pumped directly to store’s main drainage system via 35mm pipework, the pipe run often being taken through the roof void area.
Typically, sinks in these concession areas are used for hygiene, handwashing and to clean a range of containers and items which may possibly contain powders, gels and similar materials. The DrainMinor 30 is designed to handle this type of gloopy wastewater.
The Pump systems are small enough to be easily housed below the fitted counter units and are quiet and reliable in operation. A “Charcovent” filter provides easy ventilation and odour control.
Face Edge Ltd., who installed the systems, have regularly used Pump Technology Ltd. Products and report that they are extremely satisfied with the level of service they receive from the company. They say that the high level of stockholding and next day delivery are exactly what they require.
The DrainMinor is part of a range of similar products designed and built by Pump Technology. Versions are available which can handle large solids and high temperatures of 90C.
