Godwin to show new Flygt sludge pumps at IRE
By Murray Pollok16 May 2011
Godwin Pumps, part of the ITT Water & Wastewater business, will use IRE to show a new sludge series of its flagship Flygt 2600 drainage pump range.
The new Flygt 2600 sludge series comprise three portable multi-purpose models that will handle sludge and other liquids containing larger solids. The pumps have a range of 1.5 to 5.6 kW (for 50 Hz countries) and are capable of flows up to 28 l/s and heads to 38 m.
The pumps are designed for temporary sewage pumping, digester cleaning at wastewater treatment plants, light slurry transfer, open-pit and underground mine dewatering, and emergency site drainage.
"These highly versatile pumps can move sediment-filled water from a construction site, pump light slurry in an aggregate washing process or remove water and drilling mud mixtures from the face of tunnel boring machines," said Peter Hansen, product manager for Flygt drainage pumps at ITT's Water & Wastewater business.
"And because the hydraulics of the sludge pumps and drainage pumps are interchangeable, customers can adapt one 2600 pump to handle many applications."
The hydraulic ends of the new sludge pumps share drive units and common parts, and are interchangeable with similar sized models of the 2600 drainage series.
