Xylem unveils smart pumps at WEFTEC to drive digitalisation of water

Global water technology company Xylem unveiled the new Godwin NC100S and CD100S Dri-Prime dewatering pumps, the third and fourth pumps in the Godwin S Series of smart pumps, at this year’s WEFTEC conference in Chicago, US.

Equipped with interchangeable, application-specific impellers and a new generation of cloud-based Field Smart Technology, the four-inch surface mounted centrifugal pumps deliver enhanced levels of control and flexibility for dewatering applications.

The pumps enable the operator to switch from a NC100S to a CD100S, and vice versa, due to the interchangeable impellers on both models, providing a ‘two in one’ solution to increase the application range, and removing the need to invest in multiple fleet models.

The Godwin CD100S can be used in utility and construction applications, as well as emergency response dewatering. The CD impeller can be exchanged with a Flygt N-Technology self-cleaning, non-clog impeller, allowing customers the flexibility to tackle stringy, fibrous materials found in wastewater, all with the same pump.

The NC100S and CD100S models feature a redesigned pump-end, resulting in 20% increased pump uptime and 40% reduced service time. Both models are equipped with a Final Tier 4 engine, making them sustainable pump options as diesel particulate emissions are reduced by 90%.

“The Godwin NC100S and CD100S Dri-Prime pumps are designed to be versatile, multi-purpose dewatering pumps, for use in the industry’s most challenging construction, municipal, industrial, and emergency response applications,” commented Hunter Powell, Godwin product manager for the Americas at Xylem. “Due to these pumps’ unique design and interchangeable impellers, the customer can now select a single versatile pump which can handle complex solids – from 1 7/8” solids to modern stringy waste – across a variety of applications.

“Digital technology is creating bold new possibilities to address the challenges of water affordability, scarcity and resilience and Xylem is committed to driving this digital transformation. The 4” surface-mounted dewatering pumps come equipped with our newest generation of Field Smart Technology, which allows customers to monitor and control the pump remotely, at any time and from anywhere in the world.

“Field Smart Technology increases peace of mind, as the customer knows the exact location, status and condition of the pump, enabling proactive maintenance for increased uptime and reduced service time, and mitigating costly pump failures. Remote monitoring and control also supports more effective deployment of labour as it removes the need for on-site pump watch.”

Field Smart Technology is the company’s first-in-industry cloud-based telematics platform, which enables the Internet of Things across the entire Godwin S series. Customers are able to track, monitor and control the pump in real-time from any smartphone, tablet or desktop computer using cellular, satellite and GPS technology.
