Xylem launches new Lowara 1300 submersible pump range

Xylem has launched the Lowara 1300 series, a new range of submersible pumps specifically designed for sewage and surface water operations in commercial building, light industrial, and municipal applications.

The new range is available with both non-clog and vortex impellers to enable specification for applications, such as sewage and surface wastewater pumping for the commercial building sector.

Non-clog impellers feature a rip vane on the back edge for removing stringy solids, and has auto-cleanse capabilities that prevent debris build-up, which is common in sewage applications.

Reduction in this build-up improves product efficiency, reduces energy consumption, downtime, and maintenance, and extends the life of the pump.

The Lowara 1300 series has a minimum of F-class insulation, enabling it to run continuously without overheating.

To cool itself and maximise run-time, the pump uses the surrounding liquid.

The pumps can handle 15 starts per hour in 40°C ambient temperature without issue and are constructed from hard-wearing materials for extended durability, with double mechanical seals ensuring reliability and leakage protection.

Additionally, a leakage sensing device extends into the motor chamber located between the outer and inner seal to detect the presence of water should the outer seal fail.

If water enters the motor chamber, a warning signal is provided prior to water level reaching the bearing or the motor to prevent damage.

The 1300 series comes in five different models from 0,75kW up to 18kW with a maximum flow up to 414m3/h and a head of up to 63m.

Multiple motor ratings are available to match impellers performance, enabling professionals to choose the right control panel size to optimise costs.
