Dry installed sewage pump type ABS AFC

Horizontal or vertical pumping in dry installations

The dry installed sewage pump type ABS AFC is designed for pumping wastewater and sewage from buildings and sites in private, commercial, industrial, and municipal areas. With an air-cooled IEC motor from 3 to 22 kW, the pump can be installed either horizontally or vertically.

Submersible sewage pumps type ABS XFP

  • Inlet pumping station
    Inlet pumping stations are somewhat similar to large terminal pumping stations. Depending on the depth of the incoming sewer, the lifting heads can range from around 2 up to 30 meters. To prevent hydraulic shock loads, which negatively impact the biological process, the stations often make use of variable-speed drives and/or several pumps in parallel.

  • Network pumping station
    Network pumping stations collect municipal wastewater from residential homes and communal schemes. Installed in dry or wet wells, the pumps deliver the effluent to a terminal pumping station. Since most pumping stations are not equipped with screens, the pumps must cope with difficult materials such as fibrous sanitary and packaging items.

  • 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.

  • Storm water retention tank
    Storm water retention tanks act as a buffer during periods of heavy rainfall. This is increasingly important as areas become more developed, with hard surfaces such as roofs, roads and parking lots that cannot absorb the rainwater. When storm water retention tanks are implemented, gravity or pumps can be utilized to provide a reduced continuous flow into the sewer system. Sulzer expertise makes it possible to avoid peak hydraulic loads and to limit the stresses on existing sewer systems.

  • Terminal pumping station
    Terminal pumping stations receive municipal wastewater from network pumping stations. Installed in dry or wet wells, the pumps forward the medium to a treatment plant for final purification. Due to the lack of screens at most pumping stations, difficult materials such as fibrous sanitary and packaging items are a constant threat to uptime.
