Central Market, Hamburg, Germany

The project:

Fruit and vegetable hall of the Central Market in Hamburg;

Renewal of the access ramps


Company carrying out the works:

Eurovia Vinci, Building Renovation Department,

Branch offices in Hamburg and Wallau-Hofheim


Tsurumi supervisor:

Mr. Andreas Rössig (Field Sales Team North)


The problem:

Pump transfer of a concrete and water mixture for the renovation of the ramps, with a solids content of 15 - 20%. The mixture must be pumped from the basement of the Central Market hall into various transport containers.


The solution:

Deployment of 4, KTZE21.5-51 pumps with an electrode control system. The KTZ pumps from Tsurumi are massive wastewater pumps made of cast iron. The quantity that had to be pumped amounted to approx. 60 - 80 cubic meters. Our pumps can handle this kind of problem without any breakdowns.

In the event of abrasive and corrosive utilization, stronger wear and tear will take place naturally in certain components. With regards to the above application wear and tear can take place mainly in impeller, agitator, suction plate, shaft sleeve, oil ring, mechanical seal, pump casing, strainer, motor casing and discharge coupling. Depending on the working conditions the lifetime of those parts might vary significantly and can be shorter than the legal warranty period.
In this regard, please pay attention to our general terms and conditions that we also send to you by mail on request.
