The Project:

Efficient vacuum removal of hydrocarbons on water surfaces by the chemical and oil spillage task force of Zurich Canton


Contractor:

Zurich Canton Building Defence (GVZ)


The Problem:

The use of conventional skimmers/surface suction devices is relatively complex as a suction pump has to be installed in addition. Furthermore, after installation, two devices have to be overhauled. Alternatives have been sought in order to make the application more efficient.


The Solution:

The Tsurumi FSP scum skimmer/surface suction device with three floats provides an elegant solution for this problem. The integrated pump makes stand-by operation and maintenance much easier and reduces time spent. The Zurich Canton Building Defence (GVZ) has equipped itself with type 8-FSP for use in the event of an incident.

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.
