news item image
The Autoprime pump sets from Kirloskar Brothers Limited (KBL) have proved successful in dewatering, flood-control or wastewater management operations.
This high-capacity, mobile flood-control and inland water-management unit is used for dewatering the flood-affected areas in India and abroad during the monsoon season.
Water logging in cities, towns and many other areas results in economic loss and can result in the loss of life.
KBL’s dedicated Autoprime pump facilitates quick dewatering of the water logged areas.
The pump set comes with an easy to operate plug-and-play for quick start-up and requires no manual intervention during priming.
It is a light-weight, portable, trolley-mounted product that can be mobilised easily to the affected area. Autoprime is mainly used for dewatering, over-pumping, sewer bypasses, industrial and municipal pumping applications.
The pump sets are the largest-ever portable pump sets developed and supplied by KBL for flood control and drainage application in the Indian subcontinent. The pump set comes as a complete package, including a pump, prime over which can be an engine or electric motor, Autoprime unit, suction and discharge pipe and other necessary components.
Its waterproof and acoustic canopy design and rugged construction ensures longer life with minimum maintenance. With over 100 installations, KBL’s Autoprime pump sets are operational in major cities, airports, and industries across the country.
The pump sets also played an integral role in dewatering operations carried out by the municipal corporations in the flood-affected areas of Kerala and Maharashtra in India as well as in Sri Lanka.
