A conditioning pump, which is designed for use in several different scenarios to save on costly clean-out cycles and maintenance, is a submersible chopper pump mounted on a portable stand and fitted with a high-velocity mixing nozzle. It recirculates the contents of a wet well, chopping and mixing to produce a homogeneous mixture that is more easily pumped out. Floating mats are removed and solids that have accumulated on the floor are resuspended. As the pump is mounted on a portable stand it can easily be used in multiple applications at a single job site, facility or municipality.

Here is a CFD animation, demonstrating how a submersible S4S conditioning pump can mix a 12-inch layer of oil or surface matting into a 12- by 12- by 9-foot tank in five minutes.
