Xylem - the pump and water technology company recently spun off from ITT Corp - has launched a new range of Godwin portable pumps incorporating ‘non-clog' technology first used on Xylem's Flygt submersible pumps.

The Godwin NC Series incorporate anti-clogging N-technology used in Flygt pumps since 1997. It allows stringy solids to pass through the pump without clogging and has been used on 300000 Flygt water and wastewater pumps.

The NC Series models are the NC80, NC100 and NC150 - 3, 4 and 6 in (80, 100, 150 mm) pumps - and capable of flows up to 400 m3/h (1750 GPM) and heads up to 60 m (200 feet). They can be powered by diesel engine or electric motor and mounted on a highway trailer or skid base, with quiet enclosures also available.

"In sewage bypass and other wastewater pumping, fibre and stringy solids are particularly difficult," said Michel Bakhos, head of Xylem's dewatering business. "Pumps can clog up, requiring maintenance and resulting in unplanned downtime.

"Now that Godwin is part of Xylem, we can share technologies between proven product brands, to deliver highly efficient pumps to our customers. Joint engineering teams from the UK, Sweden and the United States have integrated Flygt N-technology into our flagship Godwin Dri-Prime range to create the new non-clog series." The new pumps can be rented or bought.

Mr Bakhos said the N-technology is also being offered with Godwin's Dri-Prime Backup System for sewage pump stations. This is a permanently installed diesel-driven pump that automatically takes over pumping functions in case of power failure.
