Inland waterway canal Hohenems, Austria

The Project:

Construction of the inland waterway canal as well as the installation of concrete girders for securing purposes in Hohenems, Austria

Executing company:

Hilti & Jehle, Feldkirch, Austria

The Problem:

Pumping off dirty water with high levels of sludge (turf, humus, sand).

Our Solution:

Use of two Tsurumi KRS2-100s with agitator in baskets with 30 mm perforations. The stirrer mounted on the shaft swirls up the medium and ensures that slick, sand and sludge can be conveyed away without any problem. In this way the pump basket remains unclogged and the pump line does not get blocked. In this way the work of one man for maintaining the pumps and pressure line was saved. Previously the pumps had to be frequently opened and the silted-up pipes dried and cleaned.

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.
