Rösrath treatment plant, Aggerverband, LS-Anlagentechnik
Pumping of water with high levels of sand sediment.
In January 2004, a 4-pole KRS2–80 agitator pump
was built into the sand filter:
- Average annual operating hours:
approximately 1320 hours
- Average annual sand moved:
approximately 90–100 t
- Wear/repairs: Replacement of the shaft
protection sleeve in October 2006
- Exchanged on 30.09.2010 due to internal
regulations, since then used as a backup.
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.
