Submersible mixed flow column pump type ABS AFLX

Pumping large volumes up to moderate heads

The submersible mixed-flow column pump type ABS AFLX equipped with an IE3 motor is designed for use where large volumes of process water or wastewater containing solid effluent must be pumped up to moderate heads. Premium Efficiency motors combined with efficient three- to five-blade mixed-flow impellers with low NPSH characteristic impeller design, ensure high reliability and efficiency.

Applications
  • Flood control
    Climate change is challenging natural disaster prevention. When water runs off the land in large quantities, Sulzer’s comprehensive range of pumps provide reliable, cost effective and efficient solutions for flood control.

  • Industrial water and effluent treatment
    Sulzer has a deep knowledge in wastewater treatment, and with our wide product portfolio we can now offer energy-efficient and reliable solutions for your water collection, neutralization, flocculation, sedimentation, cooling, aeration, sludge storage, digestion, and dewatering processes.

  • Outlet pumping stations
    Outlet pumping stations are required when the level of the treatment plant is lower than that of the receiving water. This is especially true when discharging into a river, which can rise during heavy rain or flood periods, or into the sea, where the level varies with the tide. Outlet pumping stations may also be needed to compensate for increasing frictional losses in the outgoing pipe at high flows, for example in long sea outfall pipes.

  • Return of activated sludge
    Outlet pumping stations are required when the level of the treatment plant is lower than that of the receiving water. This is especially true when discharging into a river, which can rise during heavy rain or flood periods, or into the sea, where the level varies with the tide.

  • Storm water pumping station
    During heavy rainfall, storm water pumping stations deliver large volumes of water at low head to receiving surface waters or sewers. Having long been a part of flood management, they are increasingly involved in climate adaptation strategies for low-lying coastal cities.

  • Water supply
    Meeting today’s challenges and high requirements within water intake, sedimentation, sludge treatment, fine screening, and water distribution processes.
