C&B Equipment Leads Lunch & Learn Event at Professional Engineering Consultants

“Ending the Waste In Wastewater Pumping with The Dip System®”


Wichita, KS -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/24/2016 --Jon Dunham, Key Account Manager with C&B Equipment, was excited to visit Professional Engineering Consultants, P.A. (PEC) in Wichita, KS, last Wednesday, March 16th, for a Lunch & Learn event where Dunham delivered training and information on "Ending the Waste In Wastewater Pumping with The DIP System®."

Dunham began with the history of wastewater and wastewater management. He then introduced the Direct Inline Pump system, better known as The DIP System, bringing with him a prototype for PEC's engineers to examine, as well as the remains of a pair of jeans the DIP System shredded through. Dunham also discussed:

"Sewer lines and centrifugal pumps are notorious for collecting all sorts debris such as wipes, diapers and even thick materials like jeans — all of which clog pumps and need to be physically removed and hauled away, says Dunham. "The DIP System shreds through these materials effortlessly — alleviating the pump clogging problem," without the need for human intervention.

"This incredible reliability is an undeniable asset as it saves substantial time and dollars for municipalities," says C&B President, Dennis Noyes. "That's what we at C&B like to call Uptime Solutioneering™!"

Developed by French innovator, Stephane Dumonceaux, the first DIP System was patented, installed and proven successful in 2003. Since then, more than 1,300 systems have been purchased by municipalities throughout France, including Disneyland Paris, with many more expected to come.

C&B Equipment recently sold the region's first DIP System to the State of Kansas for use in a correctional facility located in Norton, Kan.
