Netzsch workers celebrate the company's one millionth pump.

Netzsch Pumps & Systems has delivered its one millionth pump from its subsidiary in Exton, USA.

The pump, a Nemo progressing cavity pump for high-density solids, was developed at the company’s headquarters in Waldkraiburg, Germany. The Netzsch factory in Brazil designed and built the components and the pump was then assembled, tested and shipped in the US.

The Nemo progressing cavity pump was built for the sewage treatment plant in the city of San Mateo in northern California. The plant processes around 60 million litres of wastewater every day. Two large Nemo hopper pumps with attached aBP modules, to prevent bridging of the dry sludge, will be used in San Mateo.
