Xylem enhances drainage pump range for challenging application

Global water technology company Xylem has introduced enhancements to its Flygt 2000 drainage pump range.

The new and improved Flygt pumps offer a more reliable and robust selection of large and mid-sized drainage pumps engineered for challenging dewatering conditions and applications.

Xylem’s new 25kW (30hp) Flygt 2190 mid-sized submersible dewatering pump is built to handle tough, abrasives-laden liquids.

The Flygt 2190 pump is available with the signature Dura-Spin impellers, which safeguard against wear by sweeping abrasive particles away from the impeller neck, or semi-open impellers that increase uptime by preventing fibrous solids from obstructing the pump.

The pump’s conical trim sleeve, a quick impeller-adjustment feature, restores clearances to near-original condition, while robust cable entry ensures safe, continuous operation.

The improved Flygt 2201 shares the same technology as its 2190 sibling model while providing 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 Flygt 2400 series, provides users 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 reacts to form sulphuric acid when exposed to water and air during the mining process.

The Flygt 2400 stainless steel drainage pump is designed to provide high wear-resistance for reliable and efficient dewatering in this demanding environment.

Xylem will showcase the enhanced drainage pumps at the Bauma International Trade Fair in Munich, Germany, in April 2016.
