August 28, 2002: Tempest in the Rhine/Sieg district (Germany)

Monday still in service in Magdeburg, the next tempest waited already at home. Early on Wednesday evening, a serious thunderstorm raged in the Rhine/Sieg District, which resulted – after excessive rainfalls in Eitorf-Bach – to the flooding of basements and living rooms.

The water could be pumped off by means of the efficient pumps within the shortest possible time.
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.
