Flooding, Tartu, Estonia

The Project:


Pumping water out of a flood zone. The electricity power supply was ensured by a generator.


Companies involved:


AS Tartu Veevärk Ltd.

OÜ Impel Ltd (Tsurumi Partner)


The Problem:


Initially an 8kW pump was used. The pump capacity was inadequate, however, and the power supply using a generator with a rated performance of 8kW was also proving difficult.


The Solution:


Use of an energy-saving volume pump of the type KRS85.5, rated at 5.5 kW. This 4-pole pump provides high delivery quantities at low pressure (in this case, 63.3 l/sec at 5m), so making it ideally suited for operations in flooded areas.

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.
