Motor protection

  • Thermal control system with temperature sensors in the motor windings for automatic shut-down in case of overheating
  • Seal monitoring system with leakage sensor in the junction box and motor chamber for automatic shut-down if water has entered the pump
  • Leakage sensor in the oil chamber indicating presence of water in the oil
  • Optional bearing monitoring system with temperature sensors at upper and lower bearing indicating excessive temperature

Discharge connections

DN 100/4” (standard HD), DN 150/6” (standard ND)
Flange connection PN40 DIN EN 1092-1

4” (standard HD), 6” (standard ND) NPS
Flange connection class 150 ANSI B16.5

 

Benefits

Reliable operation

Strong cast iron construction with outer casing gives good cooling and enables the pump to run at operating water levels all the way down to the strainer.

Wear resistance

One investment for years of cost-efficient pumping. Impellers built back to back together with double exit volutes, and flow elbows in white cast iron ensure a long lifetime and high efficiency.

Flexible hydraulics

For easy conversion from ND to HD the pump is fitted with impellers and diffusers for both HD and ND versions. This give the option to stock fewer pumps and still have the right hydraulic performance for the job.

Applications
  • Mine dewatering
    Efficient water management is essential for any mine site, especially where the conditions are challenging and the weather is changeable, unpredictable or the rainy season is coming. That’s why we’re expanding our XJ range of dewatering pumps to be able to handle even the most difficult applications, whilst maintaining excellent hydraulic performance.

  • Dewatering in tunneling
    A tunnel construction is a complex worksite were many different variables need to be taken into consideration, flooding is one of them. Our drainage and sludge submersible dewatering pumps are lightweight, portable and start when you plug them in.

  • Dewatering in construction
    From roads and bridges to ditches and dams, construction sites are difficult places to work. Construction site managers need solid economic reasons for purchasing equipment. Our submersible dewatering pumps provide them.

  • Mining
    Whether on the surface or underground, the conditions in mines are harsh. Besides the mud, slurry, stones, and rocks, there are large volumes of water to remove in order to keep production moving. Our dewatering pumps are rugged and ready, taking on the toughest drainage and sludge removal.

  • 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.
