Primate enclosure, Augsburg Zoo, Germany

The project:

Aeration of the moat and operation of artificial stream with waterfall in the baboon and ringtailed lemur enclosure.

Executing company:

APS Augsburger Pumpenservice

The problem:

The water in the baboon enclosure moat must be aerated to keep it free of ice in winter so that the baboons cannot escape from the enclosure across the ice. A robust pump was also needed for the artificial stream.

Our solution:

A 50TRN2.75 pond aerator with 750 W motor rating was installed in the moat. The water in the moat is kept in constant motion using a 100UZ43.7 wastewater pump with vortex impeller. The artificial stream is operated using robust cast iron KTZ22.2 and KTZ32.2 sewage pumps.

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.
