Here are Ten Questions everyone should ask when working on a project that specifies "EPG or Equivalent" equipment:


  1. Is the pump specifically designed, patented and constructed for solid waste landfills or is it simply a standard water well pump?   
  2. Is the pump equipped with E-glide bearings and seal rings, which have been proven to outlast Teflon found in competitors pumps?  
  3. Considering the bearings & seals, is the pump designed to withstand horizontal operation? Often times, standard water well pumps intended for vertical applications are used.  
  4. Is the pump/motor encased in a stainless steel housing designed to force liquid over the motor from the bottom inlet screen?  
  5. Does the pump feature a no-splice motor lead with chemical resistant jacket and waterproof fluid block at motor?  
  6. Does the pump incorporate wheels at top & bottom for ease of installation and removal?  
  7. Is the level sensor mounted directly on bottom center to insure accurate level reading and easy removal?  
  8. Does the manufacturer hold UL file numbers and subjected to regular UL inspection for compliance to UL 508A/698A and other standards requirements?  
  9. Are all control panels Arc Flash rated & labeled including SCCR labels for OSHA compliance?  
  10. Are fuses used to provide Type 2 Coordinated Protection to protect personnel and equipment with SCCR rating of 30kA?  

Having a thorough understanding of the supplier's products and manufacturing processes is important when determining whether or not the equipment being considered satisfies the project requirements and is up to the task. Concerns regarding the safety of field personnel, compliance to industry standards, regard for patents, and the availability of technical support for the life of the equipment should all be deciding factors when selecting equipment.
