New environmentally friendly design for BBA B Series pumps
BBA Pumps has introduced a new design of its B Series self-priming pumps.
The design of the larger B pumps (6" to 10") has been modified to provide higher pump efficiency and a larger passage for solids.
The production process of the pump range’s smaller models, such as the electrically driven B40 to B70, has also been enhanced, BBA reports.
The company aims to reduce its ecological impact and the generation of waste materials by replacing spraying as far as possible with a more effective powder coating process.
The new environmentally friendly design for the B40 to B70 means the pump casing will now be powder coated as standard, the motor keeps the factory colour of the supplier, all new deliveries will have hot-dip galvanised inspection covers.
Further, a modification to the packaging material ensures that the steel motor plate, previously used to prevent transport damage, is no longer required.
Roland Berns, CEO of BBA Group, says that in many cases the changes have resulted in lower pump prices.
‘The recommended retail prices will be recalculated for each model. For the main models we can report some savings in cost which we will of course pass on to the end user,’ says Berns.
