BBA Pumps will be showcasing its new BA180E D315 model at Bauma.
The compact 8 inch dry self-priming pump provides a maximum capacity of 720 m³/h and a maximum head of 135 feet.
For the drive, BBA Pumps has chosen a modern Perkins diesel engine that meets stringent global emission standards.
Its key features include being supplied with in a sound attenuated canopy as standard, ensuing a low noise level and the best protection against dust, wind, rain and snow. An LC30 control panel, which is supported in 10 languages.
Due to its light weight it is easy to move around on-site, and the pump unit can also be mounted on a trailer.
The model also uses DriveOn technology, meaning it has now increased from 500 operational hours normal for standard engines to 1500 hours. The company said that changing oil and replacing filters has also become much easier.
The DE15 requires 65% less maintenance to the diesel engine and has improved fuel consumption by 25%.
The RF system – an exhaust module developed by BBA – provides the capability to equip the pump with an optional soot filter/catalytic module. BBA Pumps said this option reduces the exhaust emission to virtually zero. This gives more flexibility to the end user, allowing the new BA100K pump to be used in more locations, even in towns and city centres with the strictest environmental rules.
Henno Schothorst, product manager at BBA Pumps, said,“We received frequent requests for a more compact 12 inch waste water pump, because of the limited space available in urban areas for sewer bypass jobs.
“That’s why we are proud of this entirely new BA300E development, compared to the previous model it is now much easier to deploy for wastewater projects.”
