Cleaning of a truck washing pit, Dormagen

The Project:


Pumping away the washing water from the truck washing pit


Executing company:

Spedition Grote, Dormagen


The Problem:


The washing water arising from the truck cleaning process and which is contaminated with sand and granulate has to be pumped off.


Our Solution:


A pump of type KRS2-80 with agitator was selected for pumping off the washing water with its high level of sand and granulate (up to 25 % solids by volume). The integrated agitator swirls the water to such a degree that the solids cannot settle out at the bottom of the shaft.

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.
