Xylem has unveiled Flygt Bibo – a new dewatering pump that reduces energy, wear and tear, and maintenance costs.
The new pump is among the next generation of smart devices that brings built-in intelligence to industrial dewatering.
Applying Decision Intelligence, Flygt Biboα automatically adapts to its environment and only operates when needed, delivering energy savings of up to 60% when compared to traditional dewatering pumps.
Operational wear and tear is also reduced by up to 70% as instances of snoring and dry running are minimised, leading to as much as a 50% reduction in repair and maintenance costs.
Additionally, due to its unique, compact and stable design, Bibo breaks the mould of traditional dewatering pumps with 30% fewer components, reducing the amount of inventory needed.
Anders Casselbrant, global product manager, submersible dewatering products at Xylem, said: “At Xylem, we work with customers and communities across the world to bring digital transformation to the water sector. That includes the delivery of digital solutions that can optimise business processes to create more efficient and sustainable operations. As the latest addition to our arsenal of smart pumps, Flygt Bibo is set to transform dewatering practices across the mining and construction industries.
“By bringing this new, innovative technology to market, we can offer our customers an extremely reliable, compact and easy to use pump. The pump’s plug-and-play capability means no configuration is needed — the pump can easily slot into existing operations.
“Additionally, by adapting its speed and performance, the pump creates a future standard of flexibility and improved asset management. That intelligence together with the pump’s robust design will allow our customers to enjoy uninterrupted pumping so that they can focus on their key operations.”
