Metropolitan provides local village with a boost
At Metropolitan Industries, we take great pride in our ability to design retrofit solutions to meet your needs. Our engineering expertise and dedicated sales and service staffs can design custom solutions best suited to solve your water and wastewater challenges.
As case study illustrating our dedication to being problem solvers can be demonstrated by the work done in a village located in DuPage County, Ill. At the request of the owner, the location of the project will remain confidential.
“The customer needed to deliver water pressure to a small housed concession stand located at an outdoor sports complex,” said Metropolitan commercial sales manager Mike Ponx. “They required a simplex system housed in compact fashion, so we contained the system in a small clamshell structure. With this solution, the final product isn’t an eye-catcher and still delivers the water pressure needed for the concession stand to function properly.”
Ponx said the system needed to provide enough water pressure to deliver flow to sinks, lavatories, water closets and hoses within the concession stand. In order to accommodate, Metropolitan supplied a simplex system with a designed flow rate of 59 GPM at a discharge pressure of 90 PSI.
Ponx said the application of the clamshell structure was ideal for the customer due to its cost-effective price.
“From a financial standpoint, this made the most sense for the customer because they did not have the space or housing already in place for the system,” said Ponx. “An alternative solution, such as a prefabricated housed structure, would have been much more costly.”
Ponx said a number of amenities were included within the housed structure to ensure routine maintenance and checkup would be hassle-free.
“We included a heating system and a drop light for times when service is being conducted,” said Ponx. “The structure itself comes with a large enough power supply to run not only the pump, but an electric heater as well. It also runs a convenience outlet that provides the customer with power when needed. Everything was supplied as a prefabricated packaged system.”
Overall, Ponx said the project depicts Metropolitan’s vast and unique capabilities, particularly within its commercial division.
“This project demonstrates how diverse we are and our ability to solve problems, small or large,” said Ponx. “Our commercial division has the ability to service high-rise buildings or, in this case, small structures that do not require very large systems. In any case, we can provide customers with a number of options and custom solutions applicable to their needs.”
