According to Xylem, the improved pumps will offer customers a more reliable and robust selection of large and mid-sized drainage pumps engineered for the most challenging dewatering conditions and applications. Xylem will showcase the enhanced range at the Bauma trade fair in Munich in April 2016.
Xylem’s new 25kW Flygt 2190 mid-sized submersible dewatering pump is built to handle tough, abrasives-laden liquids. The 2190 is available with two impeller options: the signature ‘Dura-Spin’ safeguards against wear by sweeping abrasive particles away from the impeller neck, while the semi-open impeller increases uptime by preventing fibrous solids from obstructing the pump. The pump’s conical trim sleeve, a quick and easy to use impeller-adjustment feature, restores clearances to near-original condition boosting pump performance, while robust cable entry ensures safe, continuous operation, Xylem explained.
The new and improved Flygt 2201 shares the same proven technology as its robust sibling, the Flygt 2190, in addition to providing customers with a super-high head alternative with its two-stage hydraulics version.
Xylem’s Flygt 2400 stainless steel pump, the first stainless steel-only pump in the series, provides customers in the mining sector with a durable, super-high head pump suitable for transporting chemically-aggressive mine water. Target ores such as gold, silver and copper are often rich in sulphide which, when exposed to water and air during the mining process, reacts to form sulphuric acid. Xylem stated that the Flygt 2400 stainless steel drainage pump is designed to provide excellent wear-resistance for reliable and efficient dewatering in this demanding dewatering environment.
Kristoffer Kratz, product and application manager of Xylem’s dewatering business, commented: “Xylem’s Flygt 2000 range offers customers a comprehensive suite of exceptionally robust pumps built for long life. These new and enhanced wear-resistant pumps are engineered to handle the most challenging liquids, as well as being suitable for dry running and snoring operation. These highly efficient, low maintenance pumps are ideal for large and smaller scale jobs that require reliable, flexible dewatering solutions.”
