New Wacker submersible
By Murray Pollok18 March 2008
This PS2 400 submersible pump is one of a range of four single-phase submersible pumps from Wacker Group in Germany. The pumps are capable of handling solids up to 9,5 mm, they have built-in thermal protection that prevents motor damage due to impeller blockages, and use a preliminary v-ring seal that shields the mechanical seal from abrasive wear from suspended solids in the pumped fluid. The four pumps have ratings from 0,4 kW up to 0,75 kW, they weigh between 9,5 kg and 16 kg, and maximum pumping heads and volumes are 16 m and 276 l/min.
