New wear deflector pump technology from Atlas Copco

news item image
Atlas Copco Power and Flow has introduced a new technology platform – the wear deflector – for its WEDA D70 electric submersible dewatering pumps enabling construction and industrial sites to remove water more reliably and improve productivity.
At the heart of wear deflector is an innovative hydraulic design that provides a high level of pump efficacy.
The design has evolved in an extremely durable pump that offers long life under tough operating conditions, resulting in a low overall cost of ownership.
“With our new platform we are setting a new high standard for pump performance and customers can be sure of a robust and reliable pump that delivers time and time again,” said Bart Duijvelaar, product marketing manager – submersible pumps at Atlas Copco Power and Flow.
“Solids suspended in water can cause an impeller to wear and prematurely fail, however, this innovative design means the pumps are exceptionally long-lasting. The impellers are also manufactured from high-chrome stainless steel (55 HRC) and as such, have high hardness and exceptional wear resistance.”
The WEDA D70 drainage pumps, which have a top discharge design, are ideal for general dewatering applications, pumping groundwater and raw water at construction and industrial sites.
They can reliably pump water with a density of up to 1100 kg/m3 and handle water with solids up to 7 mm in diameter.
