Small size helps reduce construction expenditures
Xylem Inc. has unveiled a new Flygt propeller pump line that reduces investment and maintenance costs while maximizing pump stations’ performance and efficiency. The range was launched globally at WEFTEC 2012 in New Orleans.
The Flygt Slimline Propeller Pumps use small discharge column sizes, which results in a more compact pump station footprint, which in turn minimizes civil construction costs. The state-of-the-art axial flow pumps deliver unrivaled reliability and efficiency with increased clog resistance thanks to Flygt’s unique N-technology, which is used in over 300,000 installations worldwide. A self-cleaning propeller minimizes operational disturbances while delivering sustained high efficiency and reduced energy costs when compared to conventional propeller pumps.
Xylem Business Development Manager Bob Domkowski said, “The cost of moving water has major implications for a facility’s operation outlay. Xylem’s new propeller pumps are fit to transport large volumes of water at low heads with ultimate performance. Whether it is for continuous or intermittent duty, clean or contaminated water, we’ll help you with all the dynamics to move volumes, effectively and reliably.
“The modern design of the new Flygt Slimline Propeller Pumps ensures that they are easy to install, as well as cost- and energy-efficient, without compromising on performance. Customers will benefit from lower maintenance costs and unrivalled reliability, combined with customary Xylem local knowledge and engineering support. Xylem is using its more than 100 years of accumulated expertise in the water and wastewater pump business to deliver the most innovative solutions for our end-users in the U.S. and beyond.”
