Women of SWPA Series: Effective Methods To Eliminate Clogging of Solids-Handling Pumps

In this webinar series, we’re partnering with the Women of SWPA to talk about the wastewater industry, today’s challenges and opportunities within the industry, and what the future holds for it. Charli sits down with Rana Elbittibssi to chat about “Flushable” wipes and eliminating clogging caused by these wipes.

As Infrastructure ages and loads increase on our wastewater treatment systems, operators are demanding equipment that delivers more efficiency, greater reliability, and lower life cycle cost. Leading manufacturers are finding ways to deliver these contradictory goals by integrating intelligent controls and sensors into state-of-the-art hardware which can act autonomously to deal with problems and optimize performance without operator intervention.

Rana Elbittibssi, is a professional engineer, with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mechanical engineering from Concordia University in Montreal Quebec.

Rana’s role at Xylem is Regional Products Manager Americas, has been with Xylem for over 18 years, and has more than 25 years of experience in pumps, mixers, and rotating equipment that function within water, wastewater treatment, transport, solid management, industrial and water infrastructure markets.
