Tsurumi exhibited the first sewage pumps of its new series at the IFAT 2016 in Munich: They are heralding no less than the largest introduction of product innovations in the history of the company.
Amongst others, the 50GY model series could be seen on the stand in pump hall A6. It alone comprises of 12 types of pump with a motor performance of 1.1 to 9.5 kW. This pump extracts between 195 and 510 litres of domestic sewage per minute through its DN50 discharge. It pushes vertically upwards to 68 m. To ensure that extraction does not get blocked, a grinder-cutting unit macerates the solids to a size the pump can accommodate. Pumps with this type of mechanism are new to Tsurumi. As the largest manufacturer of construction dewatering pumps worldwide, however, they know very well how to deal with heavy media: blockages are therefore not expected.
The 50GY's dry weight is between 31 and 113 kg. Dry is also the key term for another new feature at Tsurumi: "For the first time, we are also offering sewage pumps for dry installation in pumping stations," confirms Birger Schmidt at Tsurumi. He is referring to the larger 100UYZK also on display, which Tsurumi presented as another new series at the trade exhibition. It is fitted with a 100 mm discharge and moves up to 3490 l/min. The seven pump types in this series have a motor performance of 3.7 to 19.3 kW. Installation can be vertical as well as horizontal. The new pumps are already available, and also in the ATEX version from 2017.
Tsurumi will introduce around 250 (!) new pump types to the sewage market by the beginning of 2017 with motor power up to 160 kW. Tsurumi, hereby, wants to rise to become one of the leading suppliers in the sewage industry. More on this at Tsurumi.eu on the Internet.
