We use the Wellpoint System which is an advanced system that is far superior to the old steel system. It is highly efficient and has a successful track record as the most satisfactory method of eliminating problem sub-surface water from construction sites besides lowering the on-site water table to a grade below the level of proposed excavation.
Our team of qualified engineers and site personnel who have been trained to handle de-watering projects and have many years of experience. This is a service industry and Satyam has a strong customer support team to assist customers with planning, engineering, execution, handling problems or unexpected conditions. They can rely on them for any support at any time. The equipment is available for sale and also on a rental basis. We also undertake contracts on a turnkey basis for large jobs. R&D is a vital part of the company and we constantly innovate to stay ahead. The Wellpoint System commences installation and operation to drain the site before excavation work starts. The advantage with this system is that heavy excavation equipment can be used immediately and the water table controlled easily through all phases of excavation.
The Wellpoint System offers a wide range of pumps to cater to different applications in standard sizes of 4" (110 mm) through 10" (250 mm) suction. Custom-built pumps are available on order. They are designed for discharges ranging from 30 to 200 Lt/sec. All of them come with either a diesel engine or electrical motor drive with skid mounting or wheeled trailer chassis as needed. Standard units come with a high capacity vacuum system which can be used with either oil lubricated oil cooled or water lubricated water cooled. The vacuum pumps can pump 1.5 to 2.0 mm of free air.
The Wellpoint System offers many cost advantages like longer life which translates into lesser depreciation, lower friction factor which means less power consumption and easier maintenance. It's simple to connect, is lighter and offers greater mobility ensuring less installation, transportation, handling and removal costs. The other fringe benefits are that the faster installation and removal means shorter project cycles and simpler equipment does away with the need for skilled labour.
The design advantages are the complete sealing both during vacuum as well as under pressure, tremendous flexibility and perfect jetting action to ensure non-clogged screen. Satyam has on the anvil many challenging projects and looks forward to spreading its wings in newer horizons.
